a couple thoughts…

Posted: February 23, 2018 by jmklee in Uncategorized

ncaaI have had many of you reach out and ask about my feelings on the news this morning about Kentucky being named in the Yahoo report.  Well, my response is a simple one.  What did the school do when they found out?  That is the key to all of this.  Is the school, administrators, compliance and coaches part of the answer or part of the problem?

If we find out that Cal and Kentucky is part of the problem then they have to go.  It is that simple. 

The complicated part of this is the agent part.  If an agent pays a kid in hopes the kid signs with them later and the school is unaware, did the school cheat?  The answer to that question is no.  Under the current rules though the kid is ineligible and schools will have to vacate wins.

Look, this is only one agency and to think it is the only rouge agency out there is not only naïve but moronic.  The question is how do you fix it.

I might be crazy but I think it is time to scrap the idea of amateurism.  Why can’t a kid have an agent?  Why can’t a kid do commercials or have endorsements?  If we allow this and bring it out into the open then it will be much easier to monitor and guide these kids and their families.

There will be more information to come and conversations to have so buckle up.
