    Well, OBL is dead now, so it's time to focus on other matters.

    That's kinda like my argument when I get pulled over for speeding. Doesn't change the fact that I was speeding and it's against the law.

    Couldn't disagree more. They're screwing everything else up, why not put the resources where they might actually do some good?

    Since this system involves millions of dollars and the state universities of pretty much every state in the nation, in addition to all that cash that goes to football players in the form of Pell Grants, I'd say looking into it is well within their rights. Plus, it's hard to deny that baseball has become a better game since McGwire et al. were dragged out for the public flogging.

    And I don't think it helps the NCAA's cause to be a) pointing out the fiscal misfortunes of the government and b) telling them where they should or shouldn't be spending their time--all in one single sentence statement.

    Better to be quiet, nod their head and say yes sir, and work on crafting a lucid, well thought out response.

    But, then that would require the asshats at the NCAA to figure out how to do something the right way.

    Can't this wait until the Barry Bonds case comes back from the Supreme Court?
