… North Carolina deserves the Death Penalty [#athletics][#academics]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 15th,2016

.. one can debate the academic propriety of an African – American studies program . I can accept the proposition . I do , however , debate its value and its morality …

.. in this case , however , these young people at the University of North Carolina were misused and abused by the system . The system itself is corrupt , and is in great need of reform …

.. the coaches are in fact responsible for this situation . They are in command of their respective programs . They need to be held responsible for this corruption to the Univeristy , the student body , the faculty , and the Government of the state and the taxpayers of the State of North Carolina …

.. [h/t — FoxSports.com]..
.. [link] to the sports news article …

.. the most affected programs are men ‘ s basketball and men ‘s football . They need to be thoroughly cleansed before being allowed to continue . There is a way to do that , though …

.. What the N.C.A.A. calls the ” Death Penalty . ” Yes , Both Programs ….

.. the shock and horror of losing both programs will hit the University of North Carolina very much . They are both revenue – generating programs . So , tough cookies …. Shut them both down ….

… Penn State ‘ s NCAA penalty should be altered …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 3rd,2013

.. What has mattered most , has been changed . The wins have been vacated . JoePa ‘ s record has been changed . His reputation has been forever stained . Jerry Sandusky has been convicted at a criminal trial , and that judgement has been upheld at appeal . Thankfully , the University will be able to reach reasonable settlements with those young people who were harmed by Sandusky ‘ s actions . Was it enough ?

.. All the good that he did was not ruined , though . It was not just the money that JoePa raised for PennState and for scholarships . He had set a strong moral example throughout his career . That part was effectively ruined . The selfless parts were not .

.. Has PennState been punished enough . The stiff financial penalties are tough , to be sure (a $60 million fine , paid over 5 years , along with the bowl ban , and revenue restrictions) .

.. The scholarship limits on the program , though , are I think far too much . The other penalties are stiff . PennState ‘ s reputation has been forever altered . The civil settlements act as an added penalty against the Penn State student body . The University and its athletic program have been punished enough .

.. Penn State ‘ s football scholarship limits should be changed . Last year ‘ s reductions , and this years , should count . One more year would be fair . Not two more , after this year . Especially not 4 years , starting after this year . That is waaaaaay beyond the pale .

.. #Stop the Insanity …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,May 31st,2013

.. Well , this is my first – ever hash tag , and this one should be a doozy . It seems that the N.C.A.A. has lost all sense of sanity , proportionality , and common sense .

.. There is an student athlete at a West Coast school (ESPN did not say which one) that washed her car on campus . You would think , no biggee  . Tell that to the N.C.A.A. . Those dummies fined her (yes , fined her) $20 for the use of the school ‘ s water , and for the use of the hose . She evidently lives on campus . Well , guys , what do you expect . Have her go off – campus , and pay a fortune ?

.. Where there are extra benefits to student athletes , there should be some sense of decency and proportionality . Going after the penny – ante stuff is nuts . Go after the big – money serious e – bs , not the chump change . Going after the small stuff makes you look ridiculous , as well as petty . Payoffs and Corruption have no place in college and college sports . However , logic , clear thinking , and smarts do have a place . So does Morality .
