If you already know the result of the report, is it really that thorough?

Shouldn't the NCAA be getting involved?


May 5th, 2016 at 1:56 PM ^

They are involved already.  They got a notice of allegations in January that no one has seen besides the Ole Miss AD and the NCAA.  They're supposedly being questioned about this as well in part of the NCAA investigation.  Nothing will ever happen, no faith in the NCAA to do anything to stem the tide of cash.

So Neusheimer was speaking about the decommitments from TAMU and the childish way the wr coach responded. Well, while discussing this he said he has only seen behavior like this on one other occasion.
Neusheimer Said is was when Harbaugh was on the phone screaming violently at a kid who had just told him he was decommiting. Neusheimer Said it was the worse behavior towards a recruit he had ever seen.

If the NCAA were going to ever do something to try to look tough on the SEC, it would be done to one of the Mississippi schools. I'm cynical about that happening, but I could see something like 5 scholarships and a bowl ban conveniently times for when they should be down in 2017 anyway.

...if they find anything.  You cannot take an organization seriously that ignores or lightly punishes such blatant disregard for their own rules. 

Brian and Ace have both said it before, the NCAA lacks the power of subpeona so they can largely only go on what evidence the schools provide them.  Yet the NCAA diligently holds up their rulebook and spews sturm and drang to everyone about breaking it.

Kind of like someone who draws a line in the sand and "oh you better not cross this line", you cross the line and they say "Well you crossed that one but you better not cross this new line I've drawn!"

"Well what will happen when I cross it?"

"Oh you don't wanna know.  Better not do it man, oh boy."

I feel like the sarcastic/insincere meaning of the word "shock" is actually overtaking its true meaning.

He's just going to follow Roy Williams lead at North Carolina and play dumb. They'll find their fall guy.

The Ole Miss women's basketball team should be pretty worried about now.

Everybody knows that the NCAA will do nothing about this.  Hell, if North Carolina can turn itself into a vocational college with no punishment why would anybody think this trivial little matter will get onto the enforcement wing's radar.

Mississippi sure isnt going to do anything about it.  Hell their assistant AD was the guy implicated in the texts fergodsake so they surely arent going to want this going any further.

Tunsil's not going to cooperate with any "investigation" so it will begin and end with fake moral outrage and rightious indignation on all parties part.

And then it will be completely forgotten by everyone.  That is if Freeze can just remember to keep his big mouth shut.

So the NCAA is in charge of accreditation now?  

UNC cooperated fully.  When I went to play school at Michigan, I remember athletes being steered towards GS, Comm, and Kines majors as well as specific "athlete-friendly" classes. A paper class is an extreme--but please don't suggest the NCAA would be an adequate surveyor of academia.

The classes did exist.  There were no lectures with a paper requirement (which is not unsimilar to independent study).  Unfortunately the paper requirement was not much of a requirement.  I took an independent study class at Michigan and guess what, I didn't meet for lecture and I had a paper requirement.

Here is UNC's admission:

And here is a cut and paste from your citation.

  According to the report, Nyang’oro and Crowder were responsible for offering hundreds of irregular classes at UNC-Chapel Hill between 1993 and 2011. These so-called “paper classes” were irregular in that they had no class attendance or faculty involvement, and Ms. Crowder, a non-faculty administrator, managed the classes and graded the papers.

Student-athletes accounted for 47.6 percent of enrollments in the irregular classes. Many of the student-athletes were directed to the classes by counselors in the Academic Support Program for Student-Athletes. These counselors saw the paper classes and the artificially high grades they yielded as key to helping some student-athletes remain eligible. Academic advisors in the Office of Academic Advising also directed non-athlete students to these courses.

What exactly do you think they're admitting to here?
