Fun--Here is something you can think about, how the NCAA has problems making the right decisions.

I am a high school basketball coach and have an AAU squad. Dealing with college coaches is something I do and have met a couple of D-1 coaches. The majority of coaches I interact with are D-2 and 3. Very few players reach the upper tier in college sports. The high school is not the issue I have, my issue with the NCAA revolves around a decision they made this year regarding AAU tournaments and D-1 campus'.

This summer we had a tournament scheduled in the carrier dome in Syracuse. It's a large tournament for the northeast with teams as far south as Florida to as far west Indiana with teams from Canada. About a month before the tournament the NCAA ruled that D-1 campus' cannot host AAU tournaments for the men teams 7U and up, because it gave the university and coaching staff an unfair advantage in recruiting. Really? The tournament was then placed in SUNY schools and high schools in and around Syracuse. Keep in mind that the women's, teams were allowed to play in the carrier dome. Isn't that a double standard? Wouldn't the womens coach have an unfair advantage to recruiting? Plus the tournament was still held in the area and Jim Boehiem was in attendance at a couple of the games. I will concede that maybe 10u and up should not be allowed to play. But 7u-9u, come on man! Maybe 5-10 percent of the players have a true shot at playing D-1. Boeheim still has the opportunity to recruit those that he speaks to, and believe me he was speaking to a couple of players. The NCAA dropped the ball on this one. This could be the only time teams would have this opportunity to experience something like that. The NCAA needs to look at the bigger picture for the youth, not closing the door to potential students.

The NCAA makes the rules, you're right about that. But sometimes the rules they create make little to no sense. Trying to find equal harmony is not a priority in their book. The priority they have now is to make money and control everything. They put blinders on some things and wide eyed about others. I doubt the stories that came forward about Cam Newton were false, and I doubt very seriously that Cam had no idea what his father was doing. It was easier for them to turn a blind eye, especially after the Reggie Bush, USC scandal that they dragged their feet on.

The NCAA offers a chance for many and limits the opportunities for the majority. Not everything they do is wrong or bad, but the judgement they use is lacking. I work closely with them, but guarded when I do.

Good grief dude, get a grip. If you post something that doesn't make sense and I call it senseless, it's not a personal attack; it's a disagreement with what you posted. It's obvious that your MO is to repeat the magic phrase "personal attack" so often that your saying it makes it so; please don't insult Wayne's intelligence that way. If I wanted to personally attack you, I would have started with the arsenal of ammunition in your own pic.

It is sort of amusing that about a dozen or two posts ago you sniped at one of my posts for not being thought through; you've declined to even suggest how so. Or, for that matter, to add anything further of substance to the discussion. Enjoy your piggyback ride for the rest of the night. I've got some plans that don't involve a battle of wits with the unarmed. Cheers.

I didn't say you don't think. I said it's easy to say something simple, until you actually give it some thought. You must mave felt like the shoe fit. I'm not gonna bicker with you over who said what; it's all there in the posts, if you haven't deleted yours like you often do when things go badly for you.

If you have something worthwhile to say on the subject of paying players, say it. Otherwise, I'll just assume you are piggybacking on the thoughtful comments from others.

Heat, Atown and Caesar have contributed thoughtful points and facts. Your "contribution" to this debate was a visceral and superficial conclusion that "that shit ain't right" or something to that effect, followed by a nonsensical and laughable proposal that student body presidents set a salary scale for players; which you declined to elaborate on as far as I recall. Other than that, I don't remember anything else you contributed to this discussion, other than sniping. If you haven't already deleted your posts, feel free to direct our attention to where you offered anything like a "thoughtful" comment.

ATown, all good points. There will never be equality between all the conferences, or schools within them. But the NCAA still strives for that, and allowing payments to student athletes, which only a few schools can afford to do, would just increase that disparity. That's how the NCAA looks at it, and they make the rules. All I was saying.

Fun--I see where you are going, but reality check here. There will never be equality/parity in college athletics. Can't happen, there are 117 D-1 for football, over 300 for basketball schools and things will never be equal. There could be revenue sharing and all the schools contribute what they can, the top tier more then the bottom and the NCAA divides the money. Just a sample of what could be done. For me comparing the professional organizations to college is skewered. 32 compared to 117, doesn't mesh. Plus porfessional football is their sole business, not so much for colleges. There will always be the haves and have nots in life. The have nots have to work harder, plan better, find the right people. Equal rights for college athletics just won't happen. How would schools tune themselves up if they didn't have Kent St., Northwestern St., North Texas, Western Kentucky on their schedules. Life isn't fair when it comes to the masses, but others shouldn't get free labor either. If an athlete is good enough to be signed by Nike to sell thier shoes, they should be allowed to. And schools should not be allowed to profit off the names of athletes that perform on the field/court. But we know how that works don't we?

I apologize heat; forgot that you did make a constructive addition to this debate. Something about paying the athletes on a scale decided by the student body president, as I recall. A very thoughtful, workable solution. Problem solved. The NCAA thanks you.

Heat take your own advice. You didn't come in here to have a conversation. Had you in fact came for that purpose you would have explained YOUR opinion on the topic and not simply chose to make a smart ass remark and at the same time reference another poster. Why don't you clarify exactly what you meant by posting that comment. What exactly do you think Fun should have THOUGHT OUT THOROUGHLY? Nows your chance to redeem yourself . If you have something purposeful to add to the topic than please do so. If you have nothing intelligent to contribute maybe you should try sticking to flirting. Just a suggestion.

Nothing new Mrs. Sav. He has a long history of adding nothing substantive to a discussion, making a snide comment toward those who do (and doing a poor job even of that), then whining when he is made to look the fool. Followed shortly by pumping his chest and declaring how he handed someone their ass. Probably, while simultaneously and secretly turning into a crybaby and reporting whoever dared to take issue with whatever "rediculous" (as he spells it) comments he has posted.

"Guess Funahoy should've thought this through thoroughly. :) "

Just for the record Heat I think YOU started this by you're above comment.

I read that as a dig on Fun for no apparent reason other than you think you can get away with it. If there was some point you were making other than negative I missed it. Your comment seemed unnecessary and meant to antagonize but maybe I misunderstood.
