With the dominance of teams for decades at a time and players parents, or girlfriends getting really nice cushion jobs that pay a ton of money for doing basically nothing. Players not having to do school work, or attend class, will congress eventually step in at some point, or is this it? The NCAA will be allowed to do whatever whenever? I'm talking primarily men's football and basketball at the NCAA level. It seems more even at the professional level by a long shot than at the College level.

The NCAA is governed by its member schools. They are effectively its board of directors.



I imagine those member schools would take a dim view of an outside organization telling them who they can hire.


As for "players not having to do school work, or attend class," those are violations of NCAA rules. If you see yourself that that is happening at your local NCAA school, report it.

Yes, the NCAA is crooked in the sense that it often looks away when some big time programs bid big bucks for recruits that are being shopped by their “trainers”. Or when certain officiating crews get away with obviously throwing games in favor of a particular team (or at the very least get to keep their jobs in spite of blatant incompetence).

Then there are cases like the massive rape coverup scandal at Baylor, where there were no sanctions on the school at all.

Millions are at stake, and the execs don’t want to see their gravy train slowed down.

Yeah I think it's to big for anything to step in at this point. Way to much money involved, people involved, and at stake here.

Very corrupt. Just look at what they did by giving Penn State back all their wins after they removed them due to the Pedophilia Scandal. Travesty. In effect negating any punishment they got.

Congress has far more important things to be concerned with.

Yeah, like padding their own portfolios. Lol

Too much big $$$$ at stake, so integrity & morality be damned. So sad & disgusting what the cf culture has declined into.

Not sure it's declined....I mean somewhere SMU and Miami of the 80s are telling us to hold their beers on that one.

Just watch the 30 for 30 pony express on SMU and they'll tell you that during the 80s pretty much the entire SWC was on probation at one point or another.

I would argue that the NCAA has created a much better product thus resulting in all this money that is now used to fund everything and anything else.

I recently watched one of those "you can't blame" episodes on ESPN where they touched on the paying student athletes issue. Some very convincing and often over looked reasons for why they don't and where all this money goes.

People in 2018 want desperately to believe that something horrible is going on because that's all we see and hear about anymore. Because of this we just assume horrible stuff is happening everywhere in every nook and cranny.

The fact that people spout off about this stuff and have virtually no clue how the NCAA as a governing body of athletics works makes me smile.
