Two classic reactions to the NCAA’s crackdown, such as it is, on recruiting services.
First, there’s Scout’s Scott Kennedy’s righteous indignation:
“This more of the NCAA trying to justify more of their bloated overpaid existence by trying to regulate the stoplight traffic regulations in the middle of a drug war,” Kennedy said. “Are they seriously going to check the coaches’ wives credit cards to see if their wives subscribe? It’s absolutely ludicrous.”
Then you’ve got Tom Lemming’s moral support, tinged with self-interest:
“I think they’re trying to make sure isn’t like basketball, to do something before it gets out of hand,” Lemming said. “I think it’s good that the NCAA does stuff. I think it should do even more, as long as it doesn’t affect me.”
In both cases, it’s about what you’d expect.
