    Another Idiotic Ruling from the NCAA

    The NCAA is punishing this KU football player for taking care of his responsibilities:

    The NCAA is on crack. I do not understand their agenda. ISU gets punished for maybe violating some obscure, stupid rule (Hubalek, etc.) Iowa players CLEARLY violate rules (cell phones, cheating in the classroom) and don't get any punishment whatsoever.

    Then this garbage. What is their agenda????????

    Quite foolish. They have their priorities backwards.

    The NCAA Beast breaks all backs. They are just another big business with emotions, situations, feelings of little consequence. Smug is their mniddle name. A Year paternity leave would be great addition to options of players.

    I too become rather bewildered when I hear about how many seemingly irrational rulings by the NCAA have been made over the past years. I think some Universities need to band together and perform their own investigation on the NCAA.

    Yeah, this ruling boggles my mind. I don't see the harm it would've done.... I mean, seriously, is the NCAA not right now saying that the guy did the wrong thing? He did the right thing! What backwards logic can't see that?? What about that commercial about women's sports that states "there are over blahblahlbah playing sports, and almost all of us are majoring in something other than athletics"... hypocrits!!! And i'm sure this has nothing to do with the fact that these guys are the NCAA's source of income. He did the right thing darnit!!!!

    How about this one:

    "The governing body of college sports might prevent Clemson cornerback Ray Ray McElrathbey from receiving donations earmarked to aid he and his brother.

    McElrathbey received temporary custody of his 11-year-old brother, Fahmarr, earlier this month. Their mother lives in Atlanta and has struggled with a drug habit for years, and their father has battled a gambling problem and lives in Las Vegas.

    After the Charleston (S.C.) Post and Courier published a story about McElrathbey last week, Clemson received dozens of phone calls from its alumni and fans, as well as those from other schools, offering financial assistance. But NCAA rules prohibit student-athletes from receiving extra benefits from boosters. NCAA rules also prohibit Clemson's coaches from giving McElrathbey's younger brother rides to school."


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.
