Thanks.

After creating fake classes specifically to funnel its athletes into, UNC did a nice job covering its arse by also letting non-athletes take the fake classes.

And yes, I see now it was a negotiated punishment. Apparently Mississippi State's administrators are more ethical than UNC? Amazing.

I would imagine, if the NCAA could prove UNC created these classes for athletes, and then permitted all students as a way to purely skate around NCAA rules, that UNC athletics would be punished. But that would require a lot of specific evidence

As I said, UNC cheated very well here. Their athletic program wasn't the first to get away with wide-spread academic fraud, and it won't be the last. There are probably similar sham classes for athletes being "taught" right now in U.S. institutions; if they are smart, they will follow the UNC blueprint.

NCAA leaders just recently had a chance to accept the advice of the Rice Commission and take this kind of academic fraud under its purview. They passed. Much easier to turn a blind eye by claiming it's out of their jurisdiction -- which makes it easier for them to concentrate on keeping athlete-students from making a nickel on their likenesses.

Then blame the member institutions, of which you are an alum. 

This will get you started...you're retired, you have time on your hand.

How am I lying?  Read the report the NCAA put out along with several investigative reports from others.  You said classes were created SPECIFICALLY for student athletes.  This is FALSE.  The classes were originally created where ZERO athletes were even in them.  Over time, yes they became destinations for student athletes and OTHER students to enroll in, but they were not created specifically for this purpose. That is false, fake, journalistic malpractice.

NBA agents are refusing to participate in NCAA certification since it apparently gives the NCAA investigory power over the agents.

Check back in a week...the NCAA promised us BIG news by then.  If they prove they can handle that, then we can give them a promotion to NBA agents. Until then, maybe they can hire Duke's law firm?

So yet again, the NCAA comes off caring more about its regulatory environment than it does the welfare of student athletes.

God forbid someone get into the business of the moral high ground that agents currently reside in.  And I say that as someone that deals with them all the time...some of them are excellent, but let’s not kid ourselves that profession has had its share of heavily squirmy reps.

Yes so let’s have the purity that is the NCAA determine which ones can consult with student athletes. 🙄

So the better answer is to just let the agents do whatever they want.....got it...

I shouldn't ask about this because it impacts a stupidly small number players and a few sports agents, but here goes..

Serious question. You don't want the NCAA regulating the agents of college players, you don't think the the agents should be regulate themselves, so who sets the rules? Federal government?

The NBPA already has a process to certify agents. How about inviting them to the table to figure out the best way of making sure everyone is aware of the NCAA’s rules?

Does make sense but do you think the NBPA wants any part of this? What do they have to gain?

The NCAA process is essentially identical to the NBPA process. The only difference is they have to agree to NCAA's investigative authority.

Not including that provision has to be an absolute no go.

Why?  And why would an agent agree to this?

If the agent wants to have a shot at signing clients coming out of college they will agree to it.

If they don't, they can shove it. The NCAA has the right to make rules and enforce them. If people don't want to take part, they don't have to. No one owes them crap.

No one said they don't have a right to create the rule and enforce the rule.  But I don't understand, and you didn't answer my question, why not including the NCAA's investigative authority is a "no go?"

Well they don't seem that concerned about that since none of the NBPA's certified agents will apparently be participating.

And I hate to break it to you, but contact between agents and potential clients already exists.  They're getting the clients regardless.
