“The only reason it’s a problem is because the NCAA says it is.”

So, how’s that whole “let’s get tough with agents” thing worked out so far?

Here’s a hint:  when a party responsible in part for enforcement of the rules provides “We try to do the best we can” as an excuse, that’s usually a good indication that nobody out there is exactly cracking down on things.

Of course, now that Nick Saban is organizing conference calls on the matter, I’m sure it will all get better very soon.  With a pony.

    Senator, that is what’s wrong with this whole country. Lawmakers make laws that they never intend to enforce or are incapable of enforcement. If a law can’t be enforced what is the point of the law? It makes the lawmakers feel good, that’s what. They at least tried to show that they are unhappy about the situation but the results are the rules are only selectively enforced. I’m a tax attorney and this has always been a big problem, selective enforcement.

      I agree wholeheartedly. I am in the securities business and our regulatory bodies – FINRA and the SEC remind me of the NCAA. Almost every act can be scrutinized. I was told recently that I must take the “JD” off my business card (although it has been there for over twenty years).

      “Strain gnats but swallow camels” should be the slogan of these entities. They worry about the little stuff and ignore the large items for far too long.
