Quote Of The Day

“They (the NCAA rules) are arbitrary, archaic regulations designed to protect a notion of amateurism that was designed as a tax dodge and then elevated to exalted status by true believers who conveniently forgot why it was created in the first place. The rules don't work now that the university presidents and conference commissioners who run college sports have decided football and men's basketball should bring in billions in television revenue over the next 15 years.”

-- Andy Staples, Sports Illustrated, in the article linked above.
