College football fans should see this as another sign that there beloved
institution is about to change in dramatic ways. This decision by the NCAA is
so representative how out of control they are. The penalties were reduced
because of "good behavior" by the institution. What??? What about SMU?
USC? others that completely complied and had to pay the full penalty. No, they
were reduced because of the complete lack of consistency and teeth that the NCAA
has. Seeing the inconsistency in penalties, Penn State (and even the state
itself) threatened to sue. NCAA caved. The NCAA is just a joke. Who do they
catch? No one. It's always the news media that catches the cheaters for
them. Look at the Miami situation... Nothing seems to be happening and
it's been months. Why? NCAA botched the initial investigation by breaking
the law themselves! Throw in the concussion lawsuits that will
start popping up and "personal images/EA Sports, Ed O'Bannon"
lawsuit and the poor colleague players who need to get paid and colleague
football will not survive as we know it in a few years. Big changes coming.
