After A-Rod, the NFL suspensions this fall, etc., I have to wonder how clean the NCAA is. If I'm reading this policy correctly, schools cannot even provide protein drinks to athletes. The banned substance (PDF) list is the usual suspects and it looks like the punishments are severe. One violation and you're gone.
Have there been any violations of the drug policy (the performance-enhancing kind, not the Michael Phelps kind)? Does the NCAA usually publish reports about the number of tests, the number of positives, that sort of thing? Do the schools get any form of punishment, in addition to the athletes?
And, a bigger question: do you believe the college athletes are clean?
I'm done with MLB until they start enforcing their policy to the point that it is a serious punishment. I'm particularly upset about the handling of the JC Romero case: he tested positive in August, was allowed to pitch and win World Series games, and now has a 50 game suspension to start the series.
