BREAKING: Missouri Football will face a postseason ban for 2019-20 due to a tutor completing work for 12 student-athletes.

Major red flag...pass.

They should suspend the college football and basketball postseasons indefinitely. That happens everywhere.
Another one of my beliefs shattered.

I always thought that they were all athlete scholars.

Good one ... the UNC scandal was big in multiple sports and they basically got away with it.

All the Mizzou tutor had to do was do the same for some non-athletes as well and they'd be off the hook (minus a big check to some law firm).
The Issues at UNC went well beyond the tutor.

There was documented evidence of classes that allowed no shows and no work ... basically a blatant free pass for the athletes. Totally shameful.
hah.... Tark's old adage holds up yet again

The NCAA was so angry with Carolina basketball that they really nailed Missouri football.

best part is the NCAA actually sites the UNC case in their findings against Mizzou stating that since the university stands by the grades given to the students in their false classes it is not a double standard that they penalized Mizzou as opposed to UNC. So basically if University of Missouri was cool with the tutor doing the homework and didnt penalize the students then the NCAA wouldnt care .... yea, bullshit.
UNC..

used a loophole that said the benefits were for both athletes and non-athletes, and they used the term "benefits", even though the classes didn't exist!!

If you want to understand the integrity at UNC, even though they portray themselves as an academic institution, they took no self-imposed sanctions for their athletic programs.

They knew there was wrongdoing, even if the NCAA couldn't do anything about it
Does this mean

Drew Lock has trouble reading defenses or just reading in general?
How much of this is football.

I have direct experience with D1 sports, the ones that do not attract large crowds and few scholarships. They get very few perks and take very challenging majors while putting in many hours of practice and workouts during any given week. These controversies stain them as well.

Answering my own question somewhat, "First, there was an investigation into the football program in 2010 for improper benefits and academic misconduct. That case -- which led to Cunningham's arrival from Tulsa in November 2011 -- ended when the NCAA issued sanctions in March 2012 that included a one-year postseason ban and scholarship reductions.

But that case led to the discovery of an even bigger concern: years of irregular courses in the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies department featuring significant athlete enrollments across numerous sports. "

Agreed. These general comments trashing all student athletes are really unfair.

I tutored at UW and saw up close how seriously academics are taken. You also see it in graduation rates (UW up there with Stanford and Duke) and the kinds of careers they often wind up in.
