On the Pac-12 task force recommendations for cleaning up college basketball:
“I can’t speak to the specifics of the recommendations now because they have not been vetted yet with our presidents and chancellors, and not formally approved, but I can share is that there are four baskets of recommendations…
“The fourth big bucket will be around NCAA enforcement. The FBI allegations and the revelations from the U.S. Attorney’s Office have certainly brought into focus some of the challenges the NCAA and their enforcement apparatus have. Certainly the FBI’s got powers that the NCAA doesn’t have, to be sure, but I think it’s been a bit of a wake-up call for many leaders in college sports that there needs to be more resources thrown at NCAA enforcement, higher caliber, maybe some outsourcing of what they do, and we’ve got more details around that that will be in our proposals.”
Subpoena powers? “Outsourcing”? Jesus. Extremism in defense of amateurism, just what Mark Emmert’s folks need. What could go wrong?
