Gridiron Now posts an interview with the doofus… er, Mississippi legislator… who’s pitching a bill that would fine the NCAA $10,000 a day for every day an investigation lasts past a year.
It’s as muddled as you’d expect someone who thinks a private, voluntary organization has to apply due process in dealing with its membership would sound. Although it feels like he knows he’s not going far with his bill:
Q. Have you talked to people in other states that have had similar situations with the NCAA, and if so, what has been the feedback from those people?
A. Recently, I have had calls as far away as Connecticut to California, and in my preliminary research, I didn’t find where any other state had looked at it from this angle.
I think the conversation is ongoing, and that’s the goal, which is to raise awareness and create conversation on this topic.
Conversation? Not until Stacey Osburn sings, skippy.
