Friday Quickies: NCAA Still the Worst Edition

The NCAA has once again botched a case

Well, the NCAA botched another investigation yesterday.

Raise your hand if you’re surprised.

Missouri will be banned from postseason play in football, as well as sanctions against softball and baseball, for admitting guilt and cooperating with the NCAA officially... you know, the exact opposite of what UNC did and got away with little more than a light slap on the wrist.

And now, nobody really knows what to do when it comes to an NCAA investigation. They have long asked for schools to cooperate in order to expedite the process and come to a conclusion in a more timely and appropriate banner.

But programs just have to look at the way the NCAA treated Missouri compared to UNC and it seems like it would make more sense to avoid cooperating and fight the NCAA at every turn with every resource possible.

In short, the NCAA messed this up... again... but nobody should be surprised. It just seems like this is common for the NCAA, and it is quite sad.

More details about the case here.
