NCAA Gives Up
After 3000 viewings of the young woman swimming the 200 butterfly and the young man tossing the shot put and talking about their life's lessons, I've interpreted the NCAA's message as:
Don't judge us by the thousands of young men who play the sport you are currently watching; instead, judge us by the many thousands more young men and women who compete in sports that you don't care about, who you will never see, and who have no hopes of earning money from the sport as a career. God bless the NCAA!
Perhaps if the NCAA invested more effort in supporting schools in their decision to accept students who compete in athletics rather than pressuring them with huge financial rewards for recruiting athletes that are often only nominal students, the NCAA would seem less hypocritical.
