That is the easy fix. Just don’t worry about your athletes getting books, get people to write the papers and take the tests for them. Then you get off scot free.
They needed to send a message that if you suck at sports, you should follow the rules very closely.

Well, the NCAA is nothing if not inconsistent.

At first glance I thought you were being put on probation.
Way to stick it to the Nerds (and my kids were Nerds, so I know Nerds)
Just when you think some common sense is infiltrating the NCAA with their recent waiver requests.........
I getting concerned; hadn't heard about anything dumb from the NCAA in a while. This more than makes up for it. This makes what happened to UNC look even more maddening. Still can't believe they got away with that.
But did any of them get tattoos?

But did any of them get tattoos?
Right, because that would be some break out the firing squad level stuff right there...
NCAA frowns on Books or tattoos?

My view of NCAA on whacking Cal Poly . . . .
Cal Poly got more of a punishment for giving its athletes textbooks than North Carolina got for fake classes

We're getting hung up on this huh?
Now I'm aware Cal Poly isn't Alabama or Ohio State or Notre Dame but for some context, this is what the playoffs mean for teams and conferences......

Proudly dispensing unbridled arrogance since 1983.
Hey BM, that's a whole lot of abc's and 123's but tell me in your own words, is this a pro or anti stance that you are taking on the NCAA's latest clown show?
I too have no clue what argument he is attempting to make.
Money flows to these programs like water and the NCAA pretends to care about the myth of the student-athlete. $800 over textbooks is beyond laughable.
Not my best work gents, my larger point is that the amount of cash these schools get is hysterical. So what if a kid pocketed an extra $400 because his books weren't $800.
This crap has been going on for years. The NCAA chased former basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian for years trying to find him guilty of violating NCAA policy and especially when he was winning at UNLV in the early-90's. During that time same period, the University of Kentucky sent a basketball recruit a package containing $10,000 in cash. The package tore apart and Kentucky was immediately on the NCAA radar.
A reporter asked Tark what he thought what he thought the NCAA would do to Kentucky. To paraphrase Tark, he said that "the NCAA will probably be so upset with Kentucky that they'll give Cleveland State, then also being investigated for violating NCAA rules, the death penalty."
The NCAA seems to get it wrong far more often than they get it right.
Bad Cal Poy, bad boy...
Every time an SEC team cheats...Cal Poly gets punished.

NCAA "don't educate your athletes". Take fake classes? Please do. Give them an extra $200 for books? Hell no.
Just be sure your fake classes are available to non-athletes and then there are no violations. Cal Poly should have simply given everyone cash for their books.
Strive at all times to bend, fold, spindle and mutilate.
I guess they drew the short straw to be North Carolina's whipping boy.

So I have a question, if the stipends were more than what the student athletes needed for their real classes, what happened to the money North Carolina gave to its student athletes for their fake classes?
Without getting into the rationale for the UNC decision (which was ridiculous), did the NCAA not tell Cal Poly what the rules were? Couldn't the "nerds" understand what sounds like a pretty straightforward rule?
78....here is a quick read from the SLO paper.
Basically a interpretation issue and originally self reported in 2017.
I thought the lesson from UNC was don’t self report and deny everything.
We can just disband the NCAA already?
"Come on, you sons of b!tches! Do you want to live forever?" -- Dan Daly, WWI
I've mentioned it countless times on here, the Power 5 conferences need to get together and create their own league and rid themselves of the NCAA. Can you imagine a 60 team league with its own rules, meaningful non-conference games and its own TV contract? Man, I can dream.
That is just insane - and - wrong. On cases like this give the school a chance to pay the overage in a fine or something but to take away the ability to play and/or take away victories is just wrong.
As someone already pointed out; North Carolina had others taking classes for athletes and Lord knows what else = double dribble standard.
