    I haven't seen this tabled for discussion yet on the board (sorry if I missed it somewhere else) and I thought it might be worth some time to type up.

    Recently Ralph Nadar took a position on scholarships and recruiting college athletes -

    Most times I take words like this with a grain of salt but to mention but a few, with....USC, LSU, Georgia, UConn and even a secondary violation by our new staff all hanging in various stages has me contemplating the ills of recruiting and scholarships.

    Then I think of this -

    and it sure seems like there is a lot of fishy stuff going on.

    So here's the questions: Does the scholarship and recruiting process need to be fixed?? Can it?? And if so how to?

    As a whole I think the process is a mess, but to consider something like Nader talks about just might ruin college sports. Not that I think this will really happen but it would sure be great to figure out a way to cut down on the cheats.

    Having said all this, personally I think there is way too much money involved to ever make meaningful and productive change. Your thoughts??

    I really don't know how to go about fixing this. Unless there's a governing body that has subpoena power and compel testimony such as federal investigators, it's tough. And we're not going to get there.

    I'm kind of with Klatt that the "BCS" breaking off from the NCAA as its own deal is the next best thing. Maybe if all the big dogs got together it would be easier to come to agreement on the rules that make sense for these so-called amateur athletes. And maybe if they drafted the rules, they would be more likely to abide by them.
