The greatest trick the devil ever pulled…

… was convincing the world that a YouTube video of a student-athlete throwing a football on the beach with his girlfriend was an NCAA violation.

    Tear it all down. Even if it means CFB will never be the same. Blow the whole system up, it’s rotten to the core. Institutions of higher learning shouldn’t be running a multi-billion dollar semi-pro football league anyways.

    One of the great differences between Andy Taylor and Barne Fife was that while Barney knew the letter of the law, Andy understood the spirit of the law.

    So, a bright student who enjoys making videos long before he went to UCF has to thread an NCAA needle before continuing because he is encroaching too closely on the student-athlete definition used by the NCAA to stay in business.

    Make the NCAA an all-volunteer organization that has no control over the lives of member school’s athletes and let the school assume full responsibility for what the student can and cannot do while enrolled there. If you don’t think that the FB Coach would have fulcrum with the athletic dept and the school as a whole for the quality of their stay on a team, you would be sadder than a Democrat in the last election. Then lets see what the alums are willing to have as rules that would or would not place their team banner in front of others.

    Make the NCAA an unincorporated nonprofit organization.

    So this kid gets paid some money every time someone clicks on an ad while viewing his videos?

    If so, and this were allowed under NCAA guidelines, then could a booster just have someone click on ads all day long on this kids channel? I can imagine a recruiting pitch now…”come on down to the plains son. I can guarantee you 1,000,000 advertising clicks per day!”

    I think this kid being ineligible is BS, but I see what they are trying to prevent. If my above assumption is correct.

      he could already do that if they guy made pokemon videos.

      or the rich booster could start an independent minor league baseball team and pay the players to come out and play ball during the summer.

      or they could just stick with the gift cards and cash.

      You’re falling into the trap of the NCAA hypothetical scenarios. We can’t let student athletes have free peanut butter on their bagels because some rich booster might give them lobster dinners every night. Well, the first part is realistic and the second part isn’t.

      Punishing kids with Youtube channels and coaches who butt dial recruits ends up indirectly rewarding coaches who intentionally break recruiting rules, or choose to live on the edge of what is allowed. Why not just open it up and let people do what they’re going to do anyway?

    Maybe the judge will award the kid enough money from UCF and the NCAA that the other schools won’t cross the line. Make it hurt judge!

    Kill Everybody. Take all the money. And burn the place down to cover it up. Escape without leaving a trace. If caught, pretend to be a cripple incapable of doing it and the incompetent NCAA investigators will let you go. That’ll solve the NCAA problem. For once and for all.
