Taser bait

By MATT TAIBBI  |  June 10, 2009

Has there ever been a bureaucracy more worthless than the NCAA? The whole system is absurd. There should be a minor league that allows guys who don't want to be students to earn a check and go play somewhere; all of this cloak-and-dagger silliness just to let a guy play basketball for a year seems an enormous waste of time. We should let the star quarterback get his money without having to show up for his no-show job at the car dealership, and let the point guard's mom wear a fur coat. Drop this nonsense already. Zero points for Rose, maybe one for Calipari, mainly because he's sort of a dick.
