I'd really like to see someone be able to police the NCAA and let them know when enough is enough. This is ridiculous.

Who would patrol them? The only possibility would be the federal government, but I think that would make more problems rather than solve any existing problems.

Regardless, this is ridiculous and I feel bad for the man. I hope they come to their senses and allow him to play without having to redshirt.

IDK, maybe a judicial committee for reviewing the sanctions that the NCAA imposes committee?

It stinks for him, but it's their league. They can make their own rules. It's going to be up to a bunch of schools just leaving the NCAA if they don't like the rules.

The NCAA is the biggest joke in sports. They do whatever they want to do, and don't answer to anybody.

Schools can't afford to leave due to tax breaks the NCAA gets. They would get killed in taxes if they left.

Yeah with all the problems we have this is worthy of Congress's time and what can they do the NCAA is a private institution Congress or any government agency has zero power of it. This whole thing isn't like he was ruled forever ineligible so he has to wait a year big deal.

I hope someone in TN or with the university decides to make this an issue, it's time to do what's right here, b/c it is right.

They don't anything illegal. They just do stuff that a lot of people don't like. I don't like people telling me what to do either. All they do is put conditions on what you need to do if you want to play college football in their league. It's not like someone has a fundamental right to be able to play college sports.

What this guy did had/has nothing to do with him not being able to play football this year. He received no money from his playing, nor did he attend a 4 year institution which would cause him to have to sit out.

While they don't do anything illegal, they do a lot of stuff that is shady to say the least.

Like, I said. It's their league. They are judge, jury, and executioner when it comes to making decisions about who gets to play in it and who doesnot. They can make whatever rules they want in that regard. It doesn't have to make sense. And I agree, that it doesn't make sense and sure think people should complain. But to think that someone should force them to do the popular thing is absurd.

Don't think popularity has anything to do with it. The NCAA lets many things fly but choose to drop the hammer on this? Just another example of their inconsistency. They continue to make the governing body of collegiate athletics look like the Keystone Cops.

Apparently they see this as an open and shut case. Things they let go are things to don't really know about.
