NCAA=The New Underground Mafia

It’s obvious that college basketball players are getting paid. Don’t you see that college basketball coaches are beginning to look less like coaches and more like members of the mafia?

The biggest scandal in NCAA history was broke by the weirdest source ever (Yahoo Sports). The NCAA was once again caught with its pants down. To dumb it down, players were caught receiving money from former NBA agent Andy Miller and associate Christian Dawkins. Some pretty big names made the cut such as: Kyle Kuzma, Collin Sexton, Kevin Knox, Wendell Carter, as well as a plethora of young men in the college basketball fraternity.

It was so obvious that programs were buried forever with this overwhelming evidence. Not much later, news reported from the pits of hell (aka ESPN) stated that Arizona head basketball coach Sean Miller was recorded speaking to a runner for a sports agent about making the cool payment of $100,000 to deliver Deandre Ayton. Again I thought to myself, “buried”.

Let me be very very clear: I have never discussed with Christian Dawkins paying Deandre Ayton to attend the University of Arizona. In fact, I never even met or spoke to Christian Dawkins until after Deandre publicly announced he was coming to our school. Any reporting to the contrary is inaccurate, false and defamatory.

I have never paid a recruit or prospect, or their family, or their representative to come to Arizona. I never have, and I never will.

Listen Sean, we all know you did it. Your well combed crew cut and pin stripe suits scream, “PAY THE MAN”.

The NCAA has once again swept an allegation under the rug like a ball of lint. I guess I have a big problem with it is because I root for the Tennessee Vols, a team that has 0 paid players. How am I so sure? Because it would be a crime to pay anybody on that roster.

TRISTAN’S SOLUTION:

Go ahead and pay your players! Just do us all a favor and branch off from the NCAA. It is so clear that they operate like the mafia that it is insane. They are a non-profit that is taking billions to the bank. If colleges like Alabama, Ohio State, Notre Dame, and USC branched off other programs would surly follow. Just make another league and call your own shots because the NCAA can’t get away with this one.

We have to at least create an equal playing field, and we cannot do that with the mafia member tossing around money to high school players like its a hot potato.

I know that everybody’s bracket is busted right now, but just remember that the player that just iced your team out of the tournament was probably paid by one of the coaches who look like they are straight ofF the Sopranos.
