Our friend Brooks, over at SportsByBrooks.com goes into much more detail on this situation, but basically the NCAA is being sued by the State of North Carolina for failing to turn over documents related to the recent investigation into shenanigans that when on in the Wolfpack football program. Why? NC is trying to enforce something called the Uniform Athletes Agent Act which it passed in 2000 AT THE URGING OF THE NCAA.
So, as happens most of the time, the NCAA says one thing, but then does another. Is it any surprise that college sports is as screwed up as it is? Forget auditing the Federal Reserve: we’d like a government audit of what goes on within the NCAA.
