    His quote at the NCAA convention: "College sports is about students playing other students. That's what people love..."
    How much longer can that corrupt cabal hide behind the romantic, homespun facade of innocent competition between student-athletes? They spin their mission as if one small tier above intramural sports. The arrogance galls me.

    In fiscal year 2016-17, for the first time the NCAA exceeded a billion dollars in revenue. The same for 2017-18--82% derived from TV and marketing rights for March Madness alone! They are a filthy rich monopoly holding sway over member schools, yet a staggeringly profitable 501(c)(3) immune to tax. Sounds corny to say but this charade is simply un-American. How does this continue absent intense scrutiny and accountability?

    A study done by their own organization shows only 7% of the public surveyed "have trust in the NCAA to act in the best interest of student-athletes." Stunning, because that's the very essence of their mission! How does a group with that little credibility wield such power?

    Only 7%! That speaks volumes about the NCAA. Just think, there's probably a share of the population much larger than 7% which believes that some of the people walking today around are not originally from Earth.
