The NCAA announced Wednesday it "uncovered an issue of improper conduct within its enforcement program that occurred during the University of Miami investigation." While it's a startling specific admission, it isn't necessarily a surprise. This is, after all, just the latest enforcement gaffe.
So the Miami case is on hold while the NCAA, per order of president Mark Emmert, waits out an "external review of the enforcement program."
The NCAA should hire someone to perform an external review of its rulebook instead.
The core issue here isn't which policy or procedure was violated. It's that the NCAA keeps trying to enforce patently one-sided and illogical rules that are supposed to be able to stop the wheels of capitalism.
It doesn't work. It's never worked. It never will work.
Well, except for the NCAA, which conveniently enjoys a valuable tax dodge.
