    Commission on College Basketball Recommendations

    The committee lead by Condoleeza Rice released their recommendations to the NCAA this morning. Some of the highlights:

    - Separate the collegiate track from the professional track by ending "one and done." (Asking NBA to change rule)
    - Allow student-athletes to test their professional prospects and maintain their eligibility if they do not sign a professional contract
    - Permit students to receive meaningful assessment of professional prospects earlier with assistance from certified agents
    - Provide resources to make the promise of a college education real

    There is much more in the report but those are some of the main ideas. I could see some of it being adopted, and other parts have zero chance, IMO.

    Another point of significance: "Implement independent investigation and adjudication of complex cases."

    In short, someone(s) outside of the NCAA investigate major NCAA infractions.

    "Enact and impose core punishments with significant deterrent effect.

    First, the Commission recommends the following increases in the core penalty

    structure: (i) increase the competition penalties for Level I violations to allow a five-year
    post-season ban; (ii) increase the financial penalties for Level I violations to allow loss of
    all revenue sharing in post-season play, including the NCAA tournament, for the entire
    period of the ban; (iii) increase the penalties for a show-cause order to allow life-time

    bans; (iv) increase the penalties for head coach restrictions to allow bans of more than
    one season; and (v) increase the penalties for recruiting visit violations to allow full-year
    visit bans."

    Recommendations pointed at the AAU suggesting boards of the big apparel companies "to support and implement financial transparency and accountability with respects to their own investments in non-scholastic basketball."

    All their major suggestions apart from the enforcement stuff are things they can’t control.

    It took seven months for this commission to come up with this ludicrous report.

    What a waste of time and money.

    The NBA won't change their one & done rule, so we're going to recommend making Freshman ineligible. What an asinine idea.

    Seriously, a bunch of preschool kids could've put together something with more substance than these clowns.

    I find it largely useless as well.

    I do think the NBA will be changing their rule, though.

    This is pretty much a joke.

    The only part I agree with is letting players return if they don't get drafted.

    I can’t lie. I hope they make freshmen ineligible so we can finally do away with the NCAA once and for all.

    I think the one and done rule should be done away with. But like I said in the other thread the players union should be against and from the owners standpoint I don't see how it makes sense.

    Recommendations could dramatically reduce AAU basketball. The most damaging impact to AAU would be Section 3 on pages 44 thru 50 (page numbers are at bottom right hand corner of each page of the Commissions report).

    Outside investigation of major NCAA cases sounds like a good step. Takes the heat off of the NCAA from fans who say they play favorites.

    Not surprising when you see who was on the committee. They are out of touch. I mean OMG I could have fixed the whole mess and made it so much better.

    I haven’t read the report, but did cover anything about allowing the rich to get richer?
