The most NCAA thing the NCAA has ever said.

Well, at least until the next court filing:

“The NCAA denies that it has a legal duty to protect student-athletes,” the court filing stated, which was obtained by The Washington Times. “But [the NCAA] admits that it was ‘founded to protect young people from the dangerous and exploitative athletic practices of the time.’”

Honestly, I don’t know how Mark Emmert keeps a straight face some days.

    The mental gymnastics these guys go through for $$$ would put Mary Lou to shame.

    Honestly, does he not read the shit they put out? He’s the Chernenko of the NCAA. When will we get to Gorbachev?

    I am beginning to think the NCAA is an example of the Stanford Prison Experiment on a grand scale.

    I’m sure they’ll at least take a moment of silence for the young man during the annual NCAA executive forum in whatever exotic resort its being held at this year.

    Lord, save us all from people claiming to keep us from being “exploited” by our own decisions. That quote is so America 2013.

    How can you claim a regulatory authority over a player’s economic liberty in this area but refuse the corresponding legal authority / responsibility that is tied to it, especially in a case in which you were a partner with an interest?!? A little late to selectively divest yourself of power (power you demanded via a monopoly over kids entering this industry so coercive it may as well be a gun).

  8. I don’t know Senator, the live broadcasts for free idea the other idea seemed to be the most NCAA thing, but it’s splitting hairs at this point.
