Commission on College Basketball RecommendationsThe 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.

Apr 25, 18, 08:57 AM #2Another point of significance: "Implement independent investigation and adjudication of complex cases."
In short, someone(s) outside of the NCAA investigate major NCAA infractions.
Apr 25, 18, 08:59 AM #3"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
Apr 25, 18, 09:02 AM #4Recommendations 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."
Apr 25, 18, 09:43 AM #5All 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.
Apr 25, 18, 09:54 AM #6What 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.
Apr 25, 18, 09:59 AM #7I find it largely useless as well.
I do think the NBA will be changing their rule, though.
Apr 25, 18, 11:18 AM #8This 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.

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.

Apr 26, 18, 09:41 AM #14I deleted my post. I hadn’t read the report well enough and it had recommended something that I didn’t think it had.
Apr 26, 18, 09:57 AM #15I haven’t read the report, but did cover anything about allowing the rich to get richer?
