Hip hip hooray for the NCAA…

Well at last, accountability for College Football coaches over the actions of their assistant coaches and their players!  The NCAA has announced a new enforcement policy which will go into effect next year in August 2013.  It establishes a little more clearly graduated level of infractions.  More importantly, it specifically intends to hold coaches accountable for maintaining control over their programs.  They will be subject to fines and suspensions, based on rule infractions and misbehavior on the part of both their assistants and their players.  It is called “the buck stop here”.  Hate to point the finger, especially since I am admittedly a Georgia Tech fan, but Mark Richt at UGA is a case in point.  They have had more off field player incidents and arrests that one can possibly keep up with over the past few years.  There are of course other programs who have seemingly snubbed their nose at the concept of obeying NCAA rules, so of course I do not mean or intend to single them out all by themselves.  Enough said.  This is a good step in the right direction.  Everyone should applaud the NCAA for taking this much needed step toward attempting to clean up college sports!!!
