NCAA Hypocrisy #534


I'll preface this with saying I have absolutely no qualm with Penn State players or recruits transferring/decommiting. They should have the ability to play in post season football, as it is a large reward for hard-work maintaining a high level of athleticism and academics.

Now, for the meat: a lot has been made about the hypocrisy of a few men at the top of the NCAA punishing Penn State for the (in)actions of a few men. Now after reading this article, I am disappointed that the NCAA is allowing other schools to contact current players. Players should have the ability to go out and contact other schools that they may want to transfer to, but reading about coaches that are excited to raid our cupboard is sickening. This directly speaks to the hypocrisy the NCAA loves to churn out: Academics are more important than athletics, unless you have a weakness on your football team that could be filled by someone else's player. Or maybe you just want a competitive advantage by adding said player, even though the NCAA is all about maintaining a level playing field. You think Mark Richt is going to bring on one of our 3rd stringers to raise his team's GPA? Because he feels bad for the player not being able to play postseason football? Why can Lane Kiffin add one of our players when they're still on probation for actually violating NCAA rules? Because the NCAA doesn't care about competitive balance. They care about contradicting their own mission.
