  • NCAA investigating every sports program from every school past present and future?

    It's starting to seem that way.


    You can add Alabama to the list.

    This is starting to get ridiculous. NCAA needs to update their rules or something, or players need to understand them.

    And why aren't the people offering the money/perks getting penalized? They're the ones that are actually starting all of this in the first place.

        It's not that ******* hard to understand. No talking to agents or receiving any kind of benefits while you're still a college athlete. It really isn't that difficult. The NCAA WILL find out and they WILL be douchebags about it.

          No one ever thinks they're going to get caught though, so they take the gifts.

            But it's the agents who should be penalized heavily though. I mean, yeah, follow the rules or something for the athletes, but if you're a guy who's been working his ass off for many years and have struggled financially all your life, and this guy comes and tells you that he'll give you money or cars or **** like that, and you won't get caught, and even if you are caught nothing will happen to you if you're in the NFL, you'll take the gift.

            The agents should be penalized by the NFL. No salary for a year or something, make it really hurt.

                Agents do not get paid by the NFL.

                  They need to stop only going after the little guys. Sack up and go after some BCS contenders.

                          How is the agent going to be peanlized by the NCAA?

                          If you are that guy who has been working his ass off, shouldn't u know better? You are just as guilty as the agent. And then also the coaches and AD who find out about it and do nothing. I mean come on, one of you players all of a sudden has a car or is making trip to Miami. When you know they can't afford it.

                          Yeah the agent is a bad man, but your the one breaking the rules by accepting the gifts.

                            True. I dunno, it's just that most of these guys have horrible judgment and these gifts are simply too much for them to reject, so I believe there should be an alternate way of preventing these things from happening. Who knows how they'd do it though.

                              Did you see Saban's response? Pretty bold move, "take the schools off the hook." He said it's time to discuss banning the NFL from the campuses to keep the agents away.

                              Saban feels very strongly about his player contacted by agents. Remember Andre Smith, the Outland winner who admitted agent contact & was thrown off the team before their Sugar Bowl game ? That was the Tide's last loss, Utah got 7-8 sacks, mostly through Smith's OLT position.

                              Spurrier said they "can't keep the agents away," & he may be right. Lock them up in the ape dorms at sundown? Put electronic ankle sensors on them, IDK.

                              Whoever held that party in Florida where Austin was with the leading d-linemen in the nation, allegedly paid for their transportation, meals etc. s/b locked up though
