I think they better focus on upgrading their recruiting successes before starting another building project. Charlie Strong has not started his tenure with much of a bang. If memory serves, Mack Brown did very well in his first recruiting class, considering he started just about the same time of year that Strong started. Situation was different, granted. But Strong could have, at least, held on to some of the guys who were wavering.

I would still love to see Muschamp at UT. He's a great coach. Lots of injuries this year; that could happen to anyone.

You're first sentence is correct. They have tried changing staff and leadership before. Their genetic structure will not allow them to morph into something as foreign to them as "fair and impartial promoter of collegiate athletics". They are too steeped in the money and power vortex. They must be dismantled; and a completely new system and organization will need to be formed that is attuned to college athletics as it has evolved.

You're being far too generous to those whine-heads at the NCAA. The reason that they are insisting on this is that, in light of the revelations regarding their own investigation tactics, they have decided to make a power play. They think that they will look weak and, therefore, lose power in their relationships with the member schools, if they back away from their original assertion. These people are cold-blooded and they see themselves in a power struggle. They are not, in the slightest, concerned about athletes. They are concerned with their own financial and power positions. The NCAA should be dismantled. Shalala, as much as I dislike her politically, should mount a full-blown legal / political attack. Former college athletes with the financial wherewithal to do so, should support that effort for the good of the sport and for the current athletes who are little more than serfs in this system.

C'mon Shalala, don't be a wus about this. Go for the jugular.

I agree with Oldtimer. These "journalists" should stick to news. This kid, along with his teammates, is bringing in millions to UCLA...and he's begrudged a backpack by this writer??
