without considering the context of extending general membership principles to hammer PSU, I can understand the argument that it was a university wide issue and not directly related to the athletics department on the surface. What makes absolutely ZERO sense is why, after determining that they weren't getting involved because it wasn't an NCAA issue, they didn't further investigate related issues that were. For example, this happened for years upon years with a relatively high number of athletes taking these courses. What are the chances that at least one of these athletes would not have been eligible for play if those credits didn't count or the "A" they got was erased? IMO, chances are pretty good that at least one athlete skirted actual NCAA rules by either meeting a minimum credit requirement with this course or meeting a GPA requirement because of a free "A"?
So, even if you buy the crazy rationale for why they didn't get involved, there is no excuse for not looking into what NCAA rules were broken in relation to the school wide academic scandal.
UNC put alot of $$ in their pockets come tourney time.....hence one of the reasons it is such a corrupt organization

More unbelievable "arbitrary" enforcing of their rules. Eventually people with get tired of the NCAA, hopefully soon.
Bilas, you mean this guy? I'd follow him too.
