If anyone ever doubted the NCAA lacked chutzpah, doubt no more.
From an AP story yesterday:
The NCAA Committee on Infractions wants its punishment of the University of Memphis upheld because schools need to be punished when they use ineligible players.
In case you forgot, the punishment refers to the school using an ineligible player – Derrick Rose – during the 2007-08 season, a player who was cleared by the NCAA clearing house. Yes, the NCAA wants to uphold a penalty it imposed on Memphis because the Tigers used a player the NCAA approved.
It was an illogical lesson when the ruling was handed down. If the infractions committee gets its way, the ridiculous lesson will only be enforced. Thanks for that, NCAA. Remind me not to ask about that whole college football playoff thing…
