I realize that this is a finance forum but, as has become my custom, I usually like to write about sports. To that end, if someone can explain to me how you suspend Terrelle Pryor for the first FIVE games of next season (knowing he could easily declare for the draft, thus negating the punishment entirely) but not suspend him for the actual bowl game that's just a few days away. I would say, call me crazy, that the only reason would be the loss of revenue for the bowl game organizers and the NCAA. I'm sure congress will form a committee a la the baseball steroids committee to investigate this. I think we've all discussed, and agreed that college athletes, are compensated just fine by way of their full scholarships, meal plans, etc.
Between events like this and the way the BCS stuff shakes out every year, I'm surprised we haven't seen any collusion lawsuits or the like. Any of you monkey's wanna chime in and explain to me how this isn't an obvious money grab on the part of the NCAA? I'd love to hear it.
