Hey, NCAA, when you do this whole constitutional convention thing…
… you think you can bother to include some fundamental fairness in your enforcement rules?
By the way, he’s not exaggerating the circumstances. Here’s what the NCAA itself found:
Beginning in January 2015, the associate AD provided cash loans—which he characterized as scholarship cash advances—from his personal bank account to two football student–athletes. The associate AD did so after learning from Akron‘s director of football operations (DOFO) that the student–athletes had not yet received their living allowance scholarships and/or Pell Grants. Under similar circumstances, the associate AD provided cash loans to seven additional football student–athletes during the 2019–20 academic year. As a result of receiving the impermissible benefits, four football student–athletes competed in 21 contests and received actual and necessary expenses while ineligible.
“… received actual and necessary expenses while ineligible.” Ain’t that some shit?
