The NCAA is doing a disservice to sport by permitting infractions such as this to result in the wrong team winning a game. The NCAA is corrupt to allow obvious calls to go uncorrected by not allowing instant replay at least in the final two minutes of the game. The NCAA and NFL are corrupt organizations whose main concern is $$$.
Commissioners making millions while the kids they exploit get nothing. Most likely 80% of top programs are bribing players to attend their school. Students getting molested while programs look the other way (Paterno). Assistant coaches raping girls while their head coach (Izzo) looks the other way. Assistant coaches beating girls while the head coach (Meyer) looks the other way. The list goes on and this only whobwas caught. It’s a joke and most of the country allows it. Disgusting!
The fact that a kicker from UCF got his scholarship taken away from him because he was making money off trick shot videos he made on youtube is kind of messed up. All in all people should be able to make money off their talents through forms of social media and other such things.
The NCAA is clearly violating the antitrust laws in the US. The Sherman Act of 1890, The Clayton Act of 1914 and the Federal Trade Commission Act of 1914 all restrict the formation of cartels and prohibit collusive practices regarded as being in restraint of trade. If the player is considered a commodity, The NCAA is in clear violation of the antitrust laws. The clearly treat their athletes like a commodity and restrict free trade.
Do they pay their student athletes who line their pockets to the brim with cash off the the hard work and sweat they put in to be "privledged" enough to play in the collegiate level? Or what happens when injury takes a player's ability to stay on the field away, Do they get any compensation for the billions of dollars they made for the NCAA? To say the NCAA is corrupt is like saying we breathe oxygen. No shit.
Too many kids have sacrificed their lives on the alter of the NCAA. Bring these kids into colleges then make the work fulltime, Schools, Coaches and NCAA officials make all the money. As many kids go on to post college careers in sports, 10 of thousands get pushed and forgotten with nothing!
Watch the show Ballers. Nuff said. Schools make billions from kids that don’t get paid to play. It seems I need more words but I’m just going to write random stuff cause the corruption is so blatant what is the point of doing that? Abra ca dab ra bro ham
It's time for an investigation of the NCAA leadership AND referees. I've watched the most inconsistent game calling I have ever seen this year; Refs on the take ? A huge amount of games were called in the last minute of the games by some weird call by a ref. The NCAA leadership chooses which teams it wants to discipline; time frames and punishments are seriously inconsistent. Why are players penalized for past sins of coaches when they didn't even play at the school during the violations. The NCAA just keeps making money and seems not to care about criticism until it faces a court case or investigation by Congress. I say it's time for an investigation of NCAA leadership AND Refs. No one blessed them as the Supreme Court of college sports.
Do you know who created the term "Student-athletes"? The NCAA did. I believe that the NCAA is using these Athletes for there abilities to make money some like North Carolina don't care about their education. If you watch the Schooled Ncaa film with Arian Foster he said that sometimes they did not have enough money for food. So I believe they should have a meal in a room for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner to get them the food it won't be mandatory but it would be free to anyone in the athletics to eat.
The NCAA could quite easily solve some issues of bias or in some cases just plain ignorance on the part of their conference refs. I know that each conference has overall control of their individual refs but the NCAA still sets the rules. Put together a panel of "reliable" rule experts and watch a percentage of the games played during the week. Set a limit on the number of missed calls to be allowed and then keep track of the remaining missed calls. For each missed, or bad call over the limit, fine the official. When you start hitting them in the back pocket you will be surprised just how well they start to call the games. If they are consistently over the limit, then sanction them. If said official doesn't like it they can either improve or quit. Sports fans are getting very tired of hearing the "we can't see them all" excuse. No other business would allow such a degree of inconsistency, or poor quality of work and not penalize or even fire that employee. Show fans that you are trying to do your job and you wouldn't be so viciously criticized.
I don't see any decent evidence to suggest that the NCAA is in any way, shape, or form corrupt. They are a business like anyone else, and have a vested interest in being fair and accountable to the public. To be corrupt would risk their profits, and no real business would do that.
