Does NCAA stand for "No Conscience at All?"
There are times when I look at the big BCS bowl games and I really get jealous about all the things we miss out on in the Ivy League.
But the ridiculous charade the NCAA is playing regarding Ohio State right now is making me feel anything but jealous.
In case you haven’t heard, five Buckeye players have been caught selling items like championships rings and have been suspended for five games.
Beginning next season.
So, all those Buckeyes will still be playing in the Sugar Bowl against Arkansas. That’s because the NCAA can’t let a premiere game like that go on without the key players from one of the teams.
Hypocrisy overflow on aisle 10!
Just to be clear: five players are being punished by the NCAA for making some extra money, but their punishment is being delayed so the NCAA can make some extra money.
Incidents like this make me ashamed that Columbia and the rest of the Ivies are even involved in the NCAA.
Speaking of big, or bigger time college football, college football returns to Yankee Stadium this Thursday with the Pinstripe Bowl.
Before the big blizzard hit the city yesterday, Kansas State was supposed to hold team workouts at the Baker Athletics Complex, but they have been moved to the NY Giants indoor training site in New Jersey for the time being.
I can understand about today, but if were Kansas State I’d get my guys onto the field at Wien Stadium as soon as possible to get them ready for the kinds of conditions they’re likely to face on Thursday.
Remember, Wien Stadium and Yankee Stadium are just a couple miles apart.
