I know I know, March Madness isn’t over. But isn’t it really over for all of us? Aside from everyone’s bracket being completely f*cked, does anybody really care who wins this tournament anymore?
Moral of this March Madness story:
The NCAA really just needs to die a quick and painful death.
Honestly with the flip-flopping, improper treatment and down right shady behavior, the NCAA has solidified itself as THE most counterproductive, incompetent, STUPID athletic association of all time.
Ever since this Johnny Manziel fiasco, bestowing a 30 minute time out as sufficient punishment for the Heisman Trophy Winner, the multi-billion dollar lawsuit brought on by past/present college athletes suing the NCAA for unfair treatment of student-athletes (or is it athlete-students…?), cutting ties with EA Games as well as the persistent douchebaggary of the Association, no one can take the NCAA seriously anymore.
You would think after all this controversy that the NCAA would get their shit together and start acting like a real collegiate authority, but no, their authority is as trustworthy as an alcohol free punch bowl at a frat party. A JOKE.
Just like their revisionist history penalty, the NCAA is backtracking. The NCAA announced Tuesday that it would begin to restore some of the scholarships it took from Penn State in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal. Penn State, under Coach Bill O’Brien, will be allowed to increase its scholarship number to 75 in 2014-15, 80 in 2015-16 and begin competing with the maximum 85 in the 2016-17 academic year.
Puke in my mouth, wtf NCAA. Answer me this, what does revisionist history solve?? Better yet, let’s ask Doc Brown, he will know what to do.
As a college football fan, forgive me for calling: Shenanigans!!
I am calling Shenanigans on the NCAA for their fickle executive decisions. Did I say decisions? I meant temporary punishments? Did I say punishments? I meant a croc of shit.
Why have we let these ass clowns decide what is ok and what isn’t ok in college sports when they don’t even know what to do themselves? Why have our leaders backtrack on decisions they have already made? Doesn’t that merely reflect poor judgement and weak character from our supposed confident leaders? Seriously, what gives George Bush?
Their decision to reduce the penalties by giving back the scholarships they initially took away from Penn State University is ridiculous. Why…WHY!?! Can we at least be given an explanation as to why these penalties are forgiven and other can not be, like USC.
USC thought, why not? If Penn State can get away with years child sexual abuse then maybe we can get away with one player’s greed, a greed that lives in every warm-blooded collegiate athlete (cough:: Johnny Football:::). Hey, can’t blame USC for trying.
The NCAA required less than a day to rule on USC’s latest appeal to modify the sanctions handed down in the case.
A day after USC Athletic Director Pat Haden met with NCAA officials in Indianapolis to request an easing of scholarship reductions, the NCAA said Friday that there would be no appeal.
It’s honestly this inconsistency in the NCAA that is beyond frustrating. Ever since USC was given the harshest punishments ever handed down by the NCAA back in June 2010, there has yet to be an equal punishment. Penn State came close but DUDE, are we seriously having this argument? Child rape vs. money….. clearly 1 individual’s greedy behavior yet realistic career aspirations is much worse than child sex abuse. Yes, of course.
I don’t want to get into the East Coast vs West Coast battle, but clearly this East Coast bias has yet to, perhaps ever, subside in college sports. Let us save that for another time. All I ask is for the NCAA to be stern, to be honest and is to too much to ask to be FAIR?!
With little shiesty actions like these, the NCAA is becoming more and more obsolete and down right idiotic. My call of Shenanigans is also a call for a Disbandment: disbandment of all the current associates presently at the NCAA. Because clearly nobody there can tell the difference between what is right and what is wrong.
Doesn’t the NCAA remind of you the big bad woman Principal in Roald Dahl’s Maltida, Mrs. Trunchbull. The relentless educator who just bullies everybody for no reason at all?
Grabbing kids by the pigtails, throwing them over the fences, making fat kids eat cake and putting children into the chokey. That’s where USC will remain now and forever……the chokey.
Realistically college sports needs a police system, needs some higher administration, needs ORDER, so the NCAA can’t just go away. I can only pray that this multi-billion dollar lawsuit bankrupts those bastards and takes everything from them, leaving them with the only option of closing their doors and allowing each conference to independently regulate themselves. Lord, don’t fail me now!
