downstairs: Like I alluded to in the other thread... how does the NCAA not have centralized government over this stuff?  What the hell does the NCAA actually *do* then?

So how can they hand out penalties- some super severe- to schools for some things... yet can't control other things?


What does the NCAA do?  They work hard to ensure that their athletes are treated like cattle with few rights.

They run the tournaments (except football) and police the "rules" for being in the tournament.  Not much else.

wejash: "I feel like we have hit the iceberg, and we are making decisions about when we should have the band play," one advisor said, referencing Titanic.

Did the marching band already drown?


But the dance band's still playing.

MugzyBrown: The NBA could so easily destroy NCAA basketball this fall if they wanted to. They already have the infrastructure in place with the G-League.  They could just expand the draft 2 more rounds and suck all of the talent from NCAA basketball.

Players drafted in rounds 3 and 4 get a 3-year guaranteed G-League contract paying them $100k - $50k per year depending on when they're drafted. If they get promoted to the main team there's some bonus structure or conversion of the contract.


Eh, there's too many "really good but not NBA level" players to really do that.  Sure Duke, UK, KU, and UNC would have lower talent levels, but that would only make March Madness more level and filled with more madness.

Plus after the first year or so you're either drafting all high schoolers or you're doing those extra draft rounds

Rapmaster2000: I'm pretty sure those are actually Georgia fans, doing a parody of Florida fans.  Which is kind of silly considering that you could merge everything South of Atlanta with everything North of Miami into a single state.  Both the citizenry and the landscape are pretty much the same.


Hardly. Orlando is a hodgepodge of people from other places. Tampa is heavily Cuban. St. Pete is an odd mix of retirees and hipsters who don't like baseball. Sarasota and Naples are populated by wealthy midwesterners who love golf. Hardly anyone in these cities identifies with the "Deep South". Jax is pretty "southern redneck" and could very well be part of Georgia. It also smells weird. Landscape is beaches along the coast, swamps in the center of Florida south of Orlando. By the time you get into Georgia you get into rolling hills, pine forests and lots of kudzu.

Well, they make sure to penalize schools for these egregious violations while also finding no violations in the Larry Nasser case.

Rapmaster2000: I'm not worried.  Everyone knows that jorts and Natty Light are antidotes to covid.

I feel sorry for any pale redhead in the Florida sun. I bet he turns into a sunburnt beet once a month.

Of course the SEC will be the last holdout. DeSantis and Kemp will insist all is well and hold the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party if they have to stock each tailgate with ventilators, bleach kegs and hydroxycholoquine-laced brats. .
