The great injustice has been undone.  All hail.  "BUT BUT the NCAA was just screwing over Rich Paul and a certain segment of society!!"......well I guess that canard is no longer available.

Yeah I'm sure they thought they did nothing wrong they just felt like reversing it less than a week after they created the dumb rule for the fun of it...

They literally admitted the rule was as dumb and unnecessary as possible.  Yet here is chicos STILL trying to play the persecuted rich white male.

People just love to pile on the NCaA and their bootlickers apparently.  Half the time they have no idea what they are even talking about.  Loved the NCAA response, and considering a friend of mine is in their media relations dept it made me smile even more.


Thoughts and prayers for your friend today.

I think we can all sleep better now knowing Rich Paul will be able to continue to feed his children. Who knows, maybe there will be a little left over so that there are some presents under the Christmas tree this year. One can only hope so.

"Ehh, the guy makes enough money as it is so let's take away some opportunity from him to gain new business for no good reason at all.  And take away opportunities for young kids to work with the best in the business."

The beauty of America baby.

I love that people are still trying to defend this.  The NCAA reversed their new (incredibly stupid) rule within 1 week of creating it yet people are still saying the only reason people are complaining is because people need to complain about everything the NCAA does.

A rule change within one week?  Guess that rule was as good as (Marquette) Gold.

I love that people care so much about a rule that impacts maybe 5 sports agents in the US.

I'm guessing the rule was a bad rule since they changed it so quickly. You seem very passionate about this issue so I congratulate you for being on the right side of the argument.

So, what now? Has your lot in life changed? Have the fortunes on MU basketball been improved? Will college basketball fans see a better product on the floor?

You're on a college basketball fan forum complaining that people care too much about things that don't directly impact their life?

For a guy who doesn’t care a lot about this issue, you sure are posting a lot in this topic.

Yeah.  The NCAA ends up with egg on their face after a decision.

Some more breaking news, the Pope is Catholic.

Actually, he is a Jesuit.

That's like someone saying you're a Marquette grad and you respond "no I'm a [insert which college within MU] grad"

I have posted too much, but not directly on the topic but on the response to it. I'm confused by those on this board and in the media who are apparently outraged by the NCAA rule.

The rule has/had an impact on a ridiculously small number of people in the country. My guess is that if LeBron's name was not associated with it, the topic would have no media coverage and zero posts on MUScoop.

I have read and commented on other NCAA related topics on this board in the past. I've enjoyed reading other's positions on a variety of  issues like paying players that would have meaningful impacts on MU and the sport as a whole. IMO this topic is way too insignificant for national media articles and internet post on the evils of the NCAA.

Just my opinion and I'll refrain from comment going forward.

For the record, not sure how many Scoopers were "outraged" by the rule. I sure wasn't.

It was silly, unnecessary, self-righteous and self-serving, and that made it a legit topic of conversation and derision. That it was deemed a failure in a week's time made it only more silly.

Good op-ed in the Charlotte Observer about the NCAA choosing to ignore recommendations by the Rice Commission and its own academic working group to hold member schools responsible for UNC-style academic fraud.
