    No “shoutout to the NCAA”… is that a joke? The only reason they changed it was bc of all the pressure they’ve been receiving from society in general. Never shout out to an evil organization like the NCAA

      They no doubt would’ve loved to keep the new college degree rule

    Finally! The NCAA sets a good example by admitting it made a mistake and fixing it.

    Gobble. Wouldn’t classify the NCAA as an “evil” organization. They do a lot of good, and in most cases are very fair. Most NCAA rules are simple and easy to follow for those who are honest and not trying to con the “system”.

      They investigate college entrance exams and high school curriculum in some cases; but, pay no attention to university curriculums (in some cases).

      runningunnin454. University curriculum is not the NCAA’s responsibility. The AA stands for Athletic Association, not the Academic Association. Unless academics are found to amount to an impermissable benifit to student athletics, the NCAA is not involved.

    The NCAA is more tone deaf than Archie Bunker.

    Wouldn’t you want your agent to have a college degree? It sort of seems like hiring a lawyer who didn’t go to law school or seeing a doctor that didn’t got to Med Schhok. An agent is helping the athlete make Multi million dollar decisions I’d think the agent should have a college degree.

      I get your argument, but I think it’s apples to oranges though. Becoming a doctor requires learning a very strict set of standards and lots of work, studying, and practice. All you really need to make people money is hitch your wagon to the right star, be a bit charismatic, and be a little ruthless. Those aren’t skills learned in a classroom. A pretty good friend of mine from Nashville manages a pretty famous, outlaw type country singer and he dropped out of high school. He just happens to be best friends with the guy with talent and is a world class bullshltter.

    The rule was and still is biased against thw kids themselves.. One does not need a degree to be an agent . mamy of the kids have chosen a family member to be an agent…. Which this rule nixed
