    NCAA denies playing favorites...

    NCAA defends Ohio State, Auburn rulings, denies playing favorites - ESPN

    What else are they going to claim? Should the NCAA be the judge of their own objectivity? Their actions clearly speak louder then their words.

    Re: NCAA denies playing favorites...

    Even if we believe the FARCE that Cam didn't know about the money...

    Scenario A: kid plays on amateur team, doesn't know another kid got paid $500 = kid has to sit out an entire year

    Scenario B: kid plays on an 'amateur' team, doesn't know his own dad got paid $200,000 and was shopping him to the highest bidder = no punishment

    NCAA = less integrity than street gangs or the mafia

    It's that bad. They play favorites like a parent who locks one of their kids in a dungeon for life and sends the other kid to an Ivy League school and pays for spring break in Europe.

    If they have to deny it, then it obviously exists.

    Terrelle Pryor can actually profit off being a college football player and not only not miss their bowl game, but only miss 5 games next season, but Lucca Staiger didn't get one single penny and he got an entire year. Yeah... that's fair.

    Wonder how this fits into the NCAA's explanation?

    Sugar Bowl pushed OSU to keep players eligible - CBSSports.com

    I'm sure it had no effect on their ruling.

    Let's not forget this wonderful story too: Josh Selby, Kansas' Star Freshman, Ruled Eligible After Nine-Game Suspension -- NCAABB FanHouse

    NCAA set a dangerous precedent with the Newton ruling. Parent is an extension of the recruit him/herself. The parent shopping their kid for financial gain regardless if they know or not is still a violation. The NCAA basically just said parents can shop their kids now without penalty as long as they don't tell their kid about it.

    The Selby thing really ticks me off after the whole Lucca mess. That kid actually took benefits and gets just 9 games meaning he misses Kansas's cupcake games and is back just in time for games that matters. There are so many examples of preferential treatment when it comes to big programs and players and throwing the book at lesser players and schools no one is buying the explanation the NCAA gives these days. Takes just days to rule Cam Newton eligible but all summer and even a couple exhibition games before they could rule Royce White out. Tells you where priorities are doesn't it?

    Re: NCAA denies playing favorites...

    I love how the NCAA operates. It always cracks down on violations and it hides behind the "letter of the law" even when the perception would be to let it go i.e. when Majerus took a kid out for pizza after his dad died.

    Doesn't the "letter of the law" state that it is a violation to have anyone solicit benefits for a player?!

    Why do universities need the NCAA? Don't conferences already police eligibility of the student athletes?

    Indeed. its not even that id have a problem with some of the lighter punishments given to the name schools, its that they seem to not give that kind of treatment to schools like ISU when there are similar situations.

    The NCAA never cut ISU any breaks,
    they have denied 90 percent of our requests and appeals,

    yet they do not punish Auburn,
    and let Ohio State have players that should be banned for the bowl game.

    The NCAA goes out of their way to make an example of Colleges like ISU and plays
    favorites to the big money ones.

    Re: NCAA denies playing favorites...

    Could someone sue the NCAA for a penalty handed down, whether it be a school or an individual? I'd love to see it happen and explain all of the unfairness in a court room.
