In a memo, obtained by ESPN, the NCAA outlined new criteria for agents: a bachelor's degree, NBPA certification for at least three consecutive years, professional liability insurance and completion of an in-person exam taken at the NCAA office in Indianapolis in early November. Is there any organization on the planet that defines “too little too late” more than the NCAA?
It has to be the most corrupt money hungry association anywhere. For years and years the NCAA has turned a blind eye as the millions and millions of dollars have rolled in. I guess it’s hard when you have the best business model on the planet right? I think any CEO would be jealous of exploiting and working their employees harder than anyone else there age should be worked and not having to compensate them. Any company’s balance sheet would look great with that model. The audacity they have to punish college coaches for illegally texting players or punishing players for not meeting academic expectations while they are driving home a win at all cost mentality is disgusting to be honest. If you see another coach getting paid close to 8 digits a year for routinely making high profile bowl games or deep runs in March are you not going to find ways for your school to get the best players no matter where they come from or what their background is? So to circle back to the original issue at hand why are they trying to regulate agents now? I agree background checks and some sort of oversight should be available to help young kids make the best decision they can but after decades of no help at all and not caring it seems a little convenient to come out with now right? I guess they only take action when they start taking heat in the media.
