In less than two weeks, we’ll have REAL on the field football to watch. It’s pro, but… Enjoy these six COLLEGE football stories from around the country.
Penn State faced the threat of a four-year ban on playing football before the NCAA imposed sanctions this week over the school's handling of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal, a university spokesman said.
Just like last year? We’ll take it.
Right. On. Time.
LSU has given a scholarship offer to soon-to-be eighth grader Dylan Moses.
While many people praised the toughness of the NCAA’s penalties, some athletics officials raised questions about the association’s process, in which Emmert and members of the NCAA’s Executive Committee and Division I Board of Directors sidestepped the normal judicial system.
“When I got started in this business, it used to be one school, one vote,” said a longtime compliance director at a BCS university. “Now it’s one man, one vote.”
Although he stepped in this time, Emmert would be required to receive the board’s and the Executive Committee’s permission to issue sanctions in any future disciplinary case, Williams said.
“Hopefully we’ll never have another case like Penn State,” he said. “But we’re going to have a discussion about how best to handle any cases that might arise that might fall into areas like Penn State.
“There is clearly a potential for other cases where the issues at hand are the ethics and integrity issues,” he added. And while those matters may end up being processed through the traditional enforcement system, Williams said, it is possible that the NCAA could again give Emmert the power to handle things himself.
