NCAA athletes aren't employees. Or so I've heard.

That is correct, but I was replying to the incorrect comment that the entire “real world” is a giant transfer portal.  False.
"I hate everything about this job except the games, Everything. I don't even get affected anymore by the winning, by the ratings, those things. The trouble is, it will sound like an excuse because we've never won the national championship, but winning just isn't all that important to me.” Al McGuire

What percentage of US employees do you think are under noncompetes?  And of those, what percentage would actually be enforced if challenged?

A small percentage....nevertheless the comment made was false. 

You also have some people under contract, that is very common in my world. 

Then you have to factor in how many folks are in a job that quite frankly they will never be able to do better...sure they can leave and go free agency but for a lesser position.

I’m not arguing that many people have freedoms of movement in jobs, but this broad stroke innuendo that everyone does is just wrong on so many levels.

- why do you need to factor that in? what does that have to do with people being able to try to do better if they think they can?

I have no problem with people trying to do better and encourage it....push for it even.  Back to the original point, your statement just wasn’t accurate.

The more you can scream from the mountain how wrong you are, the better I guess.

Looks like the University of Michigan is handling this in a professional manner. They received a single complaint and the compliance department is canvassing for more insight.

They are taking the matter seriously.

I would expect nothing less from one of the world's great universities.

It's not a single complaint.  But these date back decades and the doctor died 11 years ago so its more about investigating the circumstances and cover-up.

Michigan has an exceptional record of playing well within the rules.

There was an issue with a non-alum booster during the Fab Five period but Michigan acted swiftly and with authority.

Michigan athletics through and through is superlative. The teams in all sports are winners, the kids go to class, and they compete squarely.

Comparing U of M athletics with Michigan State isn't fair because the two universities are polar opposites - academically, culturally, and socially.

Izzo and Dantonio are both complicit in sexual assaults and academic fraud involving their players. Let's face it, the Larry Nasser problem was systemic at East Lansing. Michigan State failed as an institution.

If you are asserting that cheating goes on at the University of Michigan you need to provide evidence.

 

Lol.

Sounds like Michigan is handling the matter in a thorough, professional manner.

Dr. Schlissel will insist on nothing less.

All of our Senior Leadership is. All of our employees are under nonsolicit agreements.

Non-compete enforcement depends company to company. Mine would enforce like a tiger. If you're in California, it's almost impossible to enforce one. Other states are much tougher.
