I'll paraphrase Margaret Thatcher: being fair is like being a lady. If you have to tell everyone you are, then you probably aren't.

The NCAA can suck it.  Terrible statement.  It's like the op-ed from the NCAA director that Spencer Hall tore apart.  They can't take criticism well and it shows.  BUCKINNC said it very eloquently.  If 99% of people think you are wrong, you're probably wrong.  It's fairly comical to read, especially after the Sugar Bowl capt'n was basically like "screw values, we need $$".

Why the NCAA DOES play favorites...

In the bylaws an agent can be a friend, relative, or other person. Also, if you have read all 431 pages, you would have seen 


Bylaw 12.3.3 

"Any individual, agency or organization that represents a prospective student-athlete for compensation in placing the prospective student-athlete in a collegiate institution as a recipient of institutional financial aid shall be considered an agent or organization marketing the individual's athletics ability or reputation.

The funny thing is that the parent is viewed as the student athlete, so Cecil was acting as Cam, whereas Cam is ineligible. There are many things a parent/relative can or cannot do for a student athlete, pimping them out is one of them

You come up with that design on your avatar? I like that. Maybe you should submit something to the Big10 for them to use. Maybe if you charge a fourth of what they paid the other guys, I am sure you'd still be a millionaire.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Um, that's a long-used TBDBITL logo.
