Agreed. But there is nothing sensical about being anti-NCAA either. It is strictly an opinion one way or the other. Also, like any major organization, they get some things right, and some things wrong.

Correct

Sure. If you believe in “textbook rules violations.”

Without going back for the exact quote, Parish said that a Memphis booster paying $11,000 to get the #1 recruit in the country to move to Memphis and then enrolling him at Memphis is basically why these rules exist.

You can disagree on the existence of the rules, but this is like trying to argue to the cop who pulled you over driving 55 mph that it's the speed limit of 25 and not your choice to exceed the speed limit that is in the wrong.

No it isn't. I have made my argument repeatedly so I won't rehash it here.  But your analogy is ridiculous.

Being anti-NCAA -  in its current form and under its current tenets - is the only thing that makes sense.

 seems like you, wiseman and his attorneys are about the only ones who feel this way.  think of it this way, us scoop people represent pretty much those who would probably be on the jury if there were to be one.  i'm assuming his attorney, leslie ballin ain't a booster, ey?

Seems like a decent bill, provided there is no provision that says the coach can provide directly to the player, which is what made him ineligible.

A target on Memphis's back?  Lol.  What?  They've been entirely irrelevant as a program since the last time they were cheating, over a decade ago.  Maybe try winning some games before saying you have a target on your back.

I loved Penny as a player.  He's a very annoying coach.  I respect that while guys like Mullin and Ewing were great NBA players, they don't yell from the mountaintop how everyone is jealous of them and they're all out to get them because of it.

On the other hand, Ewing and Mullin never landed a recruiting class that had everyone up in arms.

My goodness the posts on that twitter feed by Memphis fans are truly ignorant and disturbing.  I guess when all ur program has ever done  is cheat then a fanbase considers nothing out of bounds and chooses to blame the authorities.  This is about as clear a case of impermissable benefits as one will ever see.  He should be ineligible, penny suspended and all games forfeited.  Pretty simple

Did Wiseman graduate from H.S.with a diploma or (Fake). Memphis
let him play? If so, Penny is a joke. Games should be forfeited for cheating. Memphis on probation or Penny released. Wonder what kind of
grade pt. he has in college. Course--How to hold a golf club or walk
straight etc.
