The news the past few months out of Columbus (OH), Auburn (AL) and Eugene (OR) -- and the lack of any action out of the NCAA proves my point -- the NCAA is just the name of a "bank" located in Indianapolis, IN.
Five Ohio State athletes -- sell merchandise given to them to a "shady character" in Columbus. We now know that their head coach knew about it last April -- yet, they all are eligible to play in their BCS Bowl Game. Why you ask (?) -- just take a look at the deposit slips at BANK NCAA.
Auburn's starting QB's family seeks $150,000 + for their son's signature on a scholarship offer -- and the proof is there that it happened -- yet, BANK NCAA lets him play in the National Championship game. Why you ask (?) -- just take a look at the deposit slips at BANK NCAA.
Oregon, the other team in the National Championship game this past January -- paid $25,000 to a Houston based "recruiting service" shortly after a star high-school player by the name of Seastrunk signed a National Letter of Intent with the Ducks -- in February of 2010. Will Lyles was the recipient of the $25,000 and he was the kid's "personal trainer." The check wasn't sent to Lyles from a "booster" -- it was sent directly to him by Oregon's Athletic Department. FYI -- Oregon had sent Lyles a check for $16,500 the previous year as well.
Life must be good for "personal trainers" around the country of athletes being recruited by Oregon!
Yet, once again -- the Ducks were allowed to play in the National Championship Game. Why (?) -- just take a look at the deposit slips at BANK NCAA.
Folks -- it's quite obvious that BANK NCAA only makes rulings when they don't impact their savings account. If they had ruled on these three teams before the bowl games -- ratings might have dropped -- which would have impacted future contract negotiations (BANK DEPOSITS) with the TV networks.
So, BANK NCAA will wait, wait, wait and wait -- to charge any penalties to their account holders -- until after the CHECKS HAVE CLEARED.
Thus -- the message to athletic departments is this: If you're willing to go "all-in" to win a National Championship -- meaning, break any rule you want. You can -- and you won't be penalized until years after you've won that Championship -- after the checks have cleared BANK NCAA.
Sad -- but true.
