You really don’t need much more than that headline, do you? On the other hand, the North Korean soccer officials do get first prize for the most original excuse for getting caught juicing: They claim they were treating the five now banned players with “traditional therapy” after they were “struck by lightning at a pre-tournament training camp.”

#Miami Internal Investigation: 8 Football Players, Including QB #JacoryHarris Believed to Have Committed #NCAA Violations

Sources are saying those eight players have been declared ineligible, but could still play for the Hurricanes this season. How? The NCAA can start the reinstatement process almost immediately (think how fast they moved on Auburn’s Cam Newton last season) and could mean players will only have to sit out a game or two . . . or maybe the entire season. Who knows?

SI Column: Fix “Miami” Problem by Putting Compliance Officers Under NCAA Control

Right now, each university has an NCAA regs compliance officer that reports to the school. You can sorta see why they might have a conflict of interest if they find something bad is going on. But what if those compliance officers actually worked for the NCAA? That’s the recommendation of Josh Luchs, a former agent who admitted paying college players. And while we’re at it, a suggestion we came up…

#SportsByBrooks.com: Alabama Booster Scandal Deepens — Where is the #NCAA or SEC?

Brooks has gone WAY deeper on this one than we could ever hope to get, but if you visit his website, the trail of evidence linking current and past players with a suit-store owning booster who displayed signed ‘Bama memorabilia in his store sure makes you wonder why this isn’t getting more national press.  Is it enough to have coaches and the university claim that nothing improper happened. Isn’t that…

You have to give credit to #YahooSports for breaking a big story AGAIN! The question now: will the NCAA be able to take action against players who are already in the NFL? How do you punish one of the most corrupt programs in college football history? Will we see the “death penalty” handed out for only the second time in NCAA history? (At right, the University of Miami logo, where…

Say It Ain’t So! Did #Duke’s #CoachK Violate NCAA Rules With Scholarship Phone Call? #Krzyzewski

I’m not expert on the massive bible of regulations known as the NCAA Bylaws, but it certainly appears that Duke’s long time basketball coach may have crossed the line when he offered 2012 recruit Alex Poythress a scholarship over the phone. The real question is: if it is a violation, will the NCAA have the balls to actually enforce their rules against a big name coach of a hallowed program?

Latest #LittleLeague Scandal: Players from #Ugandan Team Had Fake Birth Certificates

It was the feel good story of the annual Little League World Series Tournament: a rag-tag bunch of kids from dirt poor Uganda made it into the final round of 16 after beating those snooty rich kids from Saudi Arabia.  Unfortunately, they were denied visas to come to the USA to play after there were “discrepancies” in their birth documents, most notably that they were older than some parents claimed….

#LennyDykstra Hit With Record 23 Felony Counts – Former #MLB Star

Okay, so we can’t say for sure that Dykstra’s twenty-three felony counts is an “record” for a professional athlete, but it has to be close, right? Also, the sheer variety of charges makes this one of the most unusual–and puzzling–arrests on record here at BadJocks. Some of his crimes  include: allegedly leasing various high-end vehicles from several area dealerships by allegedly providing fraudulent information and claiming credit through a phony…
