    Controversial NCAA Rulings

    I've been doing research on problems within the NCAA for a Sports Management program and need help with controversial rulings that the NCAA has made in the past 20 years. The goal is to outline the hypocrisy involved with the governing body so if you know of any unfair/unjust rulings, post them. Thanks!

    I hope there isn't a maximum length on this paper, because if you do the past 20 years, you might find A LOT.

    Re: Controversial NCAA Rulings

    Just off the top of my head:
    Cam Newton: father shopping around for him with no punishment.
    Ohio St: players getting in trouble, but not having to miss bowl game, but have to miss games next year.
    Iowa St: Lucca Staiger ordeal.
    USC: Reggie Bush fiasco.
    Ole Miss: Jeremiah Masoli transfer waiver.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    If you are seriously in a program and you have to ask this... just drop out now, save the money.

    If you're serious... check out Jeremy Bloom, the Olympic skier who couldn't get endorsements to pay for his skiing expenses without losing his eligibility to play college football. That's a good start.

    That and the 100 or so cases this very season that have been in the news.

    Last week with Ohio State should be an easy, easy one to figure out the hypocrisy in.

    Don't remember all the details, but Dez Bryant's ruling definitely was controversial.

    Re: Controversial NCAA Rulings

    I know about almost every single issue from the Reggie Bush situation until now but we are trying to show how the NCAA has no control over the athletes and institutions. Many people believe that the athletes should get paid because they make money for the schools but if the NCAA can't police gifts, money, etc. given to athletes now, how will they be able to draw the line once athletes get money???

    For instance, the NCAA allows for gifts to the athletes when they make a bowl game (up to $500) and that can be matched by the university (up to $500). At no other point is it acceptable for the athlete to accept gifts, money, etc from an outside source. So essentially, you are telling an 18/19/20 year old kid that you are entitled to gifts or money when you do something well. We have interviewed anonymous, former players that played in the Las Vegas Bowl who actually sold their bowl gifts for gambling/drinking money in the casinos after the game.

    Dez Bryant missed a year of football for talking to Deion while Cam gets shopped around for no penalty.....go figure.

    Watch ESPN 30 for 30's "Pony Excess". SMU gets caught paying players and gets the death penalty (football suspended for two years). A LOT of people felt that SMU was being used to make an example to bigger schools. A lot of major programs were paying players, but the NCAA really cracked down on SMU because they were a small program and many people felt that they shouldn't have been that good.

    the NCAA is a cartel in its finest. If you can't write a ten page paper about that then you have some studying to do.

    Ahhh.. sorry. If you followed the SMU situation, how can you justify that. That program was absolute crap, with collusion by the Governor or Texas,no less. If the NCAA had any propriety, that was a good call. Now, that is coming from someone here who is so ticked at the NCAA you cant believe.

    But SMU boosters led them there, not the NCAA.. and it will likely never happen again, because of the money the drives the NCAA, and not the propriety of issues.
