    My parents instilled in me two great lessons about dealing with others when I was very young – “What’s Good for the Goose is Good for the Gander” and “The Frog and the Scorpion”.

    The NCAA is the freaking epitome of both!

    If by “nobody” he means Power 5 college presidents and athletic directors and such, he’s probably right. Those are the only folks he listens to, I’m sure, and they’re likely to be the only ones in the country who still want the current rules in place.

    I can’t figure out if Emmett I Ratso Rizzo or Joe Buck (the male prostitute, not the Fox whore).

    … except all college football fans, most sports commentators, and the majority of the general public.

    These guys are amazing. He might as well have said “we don’t care what the fans and the public think. We will do as we damn well please.” You begin to see why the NCAA says “no comment” so much.

    The worst part is that I really feel he is expressing the sentiments of the Power 5 college presidents and athletic directors. In other words, he’s not the main person that thinks this way, he’s just the scapegoat

    Stupefying. Out of fear of the “bagmen” overpaying star players, the NCAA would rather ignore the problem than find a solution. The answer is really under their noses…create yet another arm of the organization as a clearing and reporting house for all college athletes to report and administer their legal income from endorsements, etc. That way you would know who is receiving money, for what, and from whom. Frankly, the market is probably not as big as many assume, especially for non-star athletes. Cheating will always occur, but logically reduced since players will have a legal way to gain access to extra income. IRS will get their take, and NCAA could charge an admin fee to providers for reporting costs. Providers should like it since it legitimizes their fees and helps weed-out the illegal market.

    75.1% of the U.S. population doesn’t count in Mark Emmert’s world, I guess.
