'We are attacking that like animals right now.'
It always makes me nervous to hear aobut this shit......especially someone saying it that openly but just because he has "numbers" doesn't mean anything.
These dudes (or ladies) are seriously creepy.......I am actually surprised that if what Common Man said WAS true that he would have said something to the guy or yelled at him or something. He comes across like that type of person on radio, like he would not stand for that but if true then he basically said nothing to the guy?
Anyways.....like others have said. This crap is going to go on everywhere/all the time. Creepo's like that are always going to be out there trying to get their grubby little hands in and have access.......
The solution is that the NCAA better watch their own azzz! Bottom line, the NCAA only exists because big conferences and school presidents allow them too. I guarantee you that they wouldnt dare touch us again. They are on notice, Gee has said as much.
The reason is simple, there is just too much money on the table to allow the NCAA to impact it. Us not being in a BCS bowl cost the conference MILLIONS! In this day an age how much longer are the mega-conferences gonna cede power to that institution??? Not much longer! This was over tattoos and one of your so-called creepy older dudes passing out some fairly small cash to a few players. The bottom line is how much longer will schools who spend millions on compliance already, allow the NCAA to punish them for something that in reality, just cannot be controlled. If a kid does something against the rules, they as individuals should be punished. If someone is offering money, put in state laws to make it illegal to have illegal contact with kids playing amateur sports! But there is no way the entire school and student body should be punished.
Change is coming to amateur football and basketball, they will create a new designation for them. Stop calling them student athletes and formalize a relationship with the NFL or NBA, if the kid is a prospect. The league pays their tuition and covers top notch training for them to succeed in life in case they dont make it in the NFL and if they do, they train them in money management. So you have two different college tracks at schools. One is a pro track and the other is a academic track. They both have to work hard, just differently off the field.
Ohio State.......our nuts will kill you
