    Just read a story on MSN about a banned booster back in selling memorabilia. He was specifically prohibited by the school from contact with players and selling autographed items and now he's opened a memorabilia shop. Now before you ask, find the link yourself.

    Is there any wonder how bama gets the best players? I am sure they told him to cool it for a while, then snickered.
    Pay for play, don't tell me recruits don't talk to each other. Go here the NCAA can't stop payola in ala. They are in San Diego taking about more money. You will make more here than anywhere else. NCAA grow some!

    It's awesome.

    My only question is who makes more $$$???

    Alabama football players or Kentucky basketball players?

    The NCAA? Ha, don't make me laugh. The money all goes through people that aren't even family members. It's not even illegal according to the NCAA. Bama and Kentucky been doing it so long, and are so good at it, that they will never get caught.

    Johnny Football autographed 4,400+ items for a dealer, and got half a game suspension. The precedent is set ... just say "Well gee wiz, I had no idea they were going to sell these items." The NCAA has no balls anymore.

    They apparently have brass ones when it comes to Chris Walker.

    Amazing isn't it? Their handling of his situation is disgraceful.

    I don't think the Gator players are allowed to get any of their stuff until after they are done playing. I don't see any of that kind of items for sale around G'ville.

    Holy Geez. There needs to be an expose on how the NCAA is handling these things. Compare the two cases. Damn, it would make for great TV on ESPN.
    The NCAA makes sure to do all it can so that Johnny football misses only half a game. While they let Chris Walker sit on the back burner for weeks, going on months because of some paperwork they are taking their time to push through.

    Chris Walker is a Gator and a threat to the blue blood cash cows for the SEC and NCAA bball elitists. If he played for blue he would never have been ineligible.

    The NCAA would look the other way for gumpsters while immolating Gator signees.

    You're right, but at least in part because if CW played for Cal, Cal would have told him to keep his mouth shut instead of reporting it.

    We did the right thing, even if we got disproportionately affected by it compared with other schools in the same situation.

    My theory is the programs who get away with stuff make it their business to know where the NCAA's skeletons are hidden. Let's say, theoretically only, of course, that an influential college president is having an affair. A school like Bama probably has hundreds or even thousands of eager beaver volunteer private detectives ready to show up with a cell phone anywhere they're needed. Pictures are taken and tucked away for safe keeping if the AD's phone rings. End of problem.

    The NCAA needs to go. Now.

    The reason the NCAA moved to Indianapolis is because it's further away from Alabama. LOL

    The NCAA is scared to go there period. Alabama and benefits for athletes playing football go hand in hand.
    when the Bear was there it was prevelant. Nothing has changed and won't. Book it.
