TFW you give the game away

Shot.

Chaser.

… we have been made aware of several current agents who have appropriately represented former student-athletes in their professional quest and whom the National Basketball Players Association has granted waivers of its bachelor’s degree requirement. While specific individuals were not considered when developing our process, we respect the NBPA’s determination of qualification and have amended our certification criteria.

Student-athletes now can be represented by agents who meet the following requirements:

  • Have a bachelor’s degree and/or are currently certified and in good standing with the NBPA.  [Emphasis added.]

Funny how all that concern about the importance of earning a degree dissipated in the face of a withering barrage of criticism… unless you really want to believe the NCAA just discovered the existence of successful agents who didn’t earn one.  Then again, I have to admit choosing between calling the NCAA clueless or greedy is a tough call.
