All quiet on the violations front ... is NCAA enforcement dead?

Recommended Posts

When I read this article it is very discouraging and leads me to believe there is likely rampant cheating going on right now. North Carolina, Miami, Penn State -- to me there is still less risk in cheating and until they fix this with some steep penalties it will continue...

"It may be six months before there's another one,” Banowsky said. “I don't know what to make of that. It's interesting because we expanded the number of people on the committee because the expectation was the load was increasing. So we brought all these new people in -- (new committee members) Bobby Cremins, Lloyd Carr and others -- and we haven't had any meaningful cases. We're well trained, though.”

After making high-profile mistakes -- most notably in the Miami case, which is the last major violations case on record for a Football Bowl Subdivision school -- the NCAA enforcement staff is trying to reinvent itself. But there remains very little confidence within college sports of how the NCAA polices members.

As the power-five conferences attempt to gain greater autonomy to provide players with benefits, they also want more of a say in shaping enforcement. Meanwhile, a prevalent thought these days is that there's never been a better time to cheat in college sports than now.

“I think everybody would agree the NCAA enforcement procedures are broken,” Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said. “They haven't heard a case in eight months. Without the weight of perjury or the power of subpoena, it's a wonder they get to the bottom of anything.

Yep. College football is falling apart.

No it isn't--its always been this way. Big programs control the NCAA, since they have all the power in their states and conferences. That has been the case for over 50 years, if not longer.

For non-AQs, when the AQs finally break away in whatever form that will be, that's when our non-AQ college football world will fall apart.

What else do you expect when the foxes are in charge of the hen house?

Under the expanded NCAA infractions committee model, the SEC has three representatives on the infractions committee; the Big Ten (two) is the only other conference with more than one committee member.

It's probably due to that stiff penalty that was handed to Penn State. They fell all the way to 12th in Total Revenue and only had a $4 million excess of revenue over expenses as a result of the near "death penalty" handed down. Their average attendance actually fell three or four thousand. Tough infractions committee.

      Documents and bank records obtained in discovery during the federal investigation into the underbelly of college basketball detail in meticulous fashion the expenditures of prominent former NBA agent Andy Miller, his former associate Christian Dawkins and his agency, ASM Sports. They include expense reports and balance sheets that list cash advances, as well as entertainment and travel expenses for high school and college prospects and their families.
      Yahoo Sports viewed hundreds of pages of documents from the years-long probe that had federal authorities monitoring multiple targets and intercepting more than 4,000 calls across 330 days, providing a clear-eyed view into the pervasive nature of the game’s underground economy.
      While three criminal cases tied to the investigation may take years to play out, the documents viewed by Yahoo revealed the extent of the potential NCAA ramifications from the case. The documents show an underground recruiting operation that could create NCAA rules issues – both current and retroactive – for at least 20 Division I basketball programs and more than 25 players.
      The documents tie some of the biggest names and programs in the sport to activity that appears to violate the NCAA’s amateurism rules. This could end up casting a pall over the NCAA tournament because of eligibility issues. There’s potential impermissible benefits and preferential treatment for players and families of players at Duke, North Carolina, Texas, Kentucky, Michigan State, USC, Alabama and a host of other schools. The documents link some of the sport’s biggest current stars – Michigan State’s Miles Bridges, Alabama’s Collin Sexton and Duke’s Wendell Carter – to specific potential extra benefits for either the athletes or their family members. The amounts tied to players in the case range from basic meals to tens of thousands of dollars.
      NCAA president Mark Emmert released a statement Friday morning to address the latest developments in the corruption probe.
      “These allegations, if true, point to systematic failures that must be fixed and fixed now if we want college sports in America. Simply put, people who engage in this kind of behavior have no place in college sports. They are an affront to all those who play by the rules,” the statement read. “Following the Southern District of New York’s indictments last year, the NCAA Board of Governors and I formed the independent Commission on College Basketball, chaired by Condoleezza Rice, to provide recommendations on how to clean up the sport. With these latest allegations, it’s clear this work is more important now than ever. The Board and I are completely committed to making transformational changes to the game and ensuring all involved in college basketball do so with integrity. We also will continue to cooperate with the efforts of federal prosecutors to identify and punish the unscrupulous parties seeking to exploit the system through criminal acts.”
