NCAA taking Ques from nfl ???????…………………..

GettingRippedOne has to really wonder what is behind the ncaa banning messages on eye black worn by players.  The ncaa is nothing but a group of money grubbing elitist, many whom never played a down of football  in their ivory tower lives…………………much less any type of sports.

Football players are kids that put everything on the line and make their schools millions of dollars.  The reason the kids are who they are at this point is that they are individualists.  Sure many get scholarsips, ……………and I think they get some stipend money…………but they should get more………

Now the ncaa wants to further strip them of more of their individuality.  I could be wrong, …………………………where have you heard that before????, ………………………. But I think this has been brought on by Tim Tebow’s latest commercial.   I’m not going to get into politics, but it seems like a person’s stance on a controversial topic has spilled over to an eye black censorship issue.

Just like when I taught in public school, …………..A kid got reprimanded and sent home for wearing a swastika carved into his arm. One teacher demanded the kid be thrown out of school for good.  I mentioned to him if someone is a jerk, don’t you want to see it instead being “surprised” by it??????   You can’t throw a kid out for expressing himself can you?

Ladies and gentleman this is ncaa censorship.  I have not seen anything profane on any eye black strips.  Have You???  Another thought is …………………………Does the nfl have something to do with this???

skip bayless on espn said he is all for this due to the “chance” something profane or “gang” messages could be on them or worse yet, a girl’s or family member’s name……… what a wuss!

Isn’t this a coach’s responsibility to oversee what players are wearing???  Why all this centralized control????

………………..and by the way ncaa, there are playoffs for all the other college football divisions and not division I, …………why can’t you give us what we all want, …………………PLAYOFFS AND A TRUE NATIONAL CHAMPION!  ………………………. Because it’s not about the money is it?????

    One thing they ought to be discussing is a playoff system. Isn’t it past time for this to happen,after all what are they afraid of if its about the best program in college set up a playoff system and let the results of the game prove whose number 1 instead of a bunch of computer geeks, who don’t know a forward pass from a fumble.
    If you don’t plan on paying them then leave them alone and let them enjoy their youth.

    I didn’t like how the ncaa,made the players wear Grey gloves..some universities don’t have Grey in their school colors..what was the reasoning for that..You said it all coach! NCAA,NO CREATIVE ACCESSORIES ALOUD.

  3. PraiseDaddy says:

    Totally agree, coach, on all points. A LOT of hypocrisy here and the NCAA is getting like the gestapo. I have to believe there are are a lot of sponsors behind the scenes calling the shots and a
    bunch of NCAA “officials” getting their palms greased. There excuses for not having a football
    playoff have been bogus and empty for years.
    The NCAA rates right behind the ACLU in my
    most detestable organizations

    PraiseDaddy,

    Funny you metion aclu, ………..I wonder if they will come to the defense of the players on this????

    It’s funny how freedom of speech only applies to certain folks with certain views……….when they get involved.

  5. PraiseDaddy says:

    YES,INDEED. Freedom of speech, as long as THEY agree with it.

  6. the F.O.T.H. says:

    I have to agree with everything Rip has said on this topic!!!!!

  7. PraiseDaddy says:

    Funny, speaking of the gestapo, we had an inspection check on our ID badges at work today.
    BADGES!,… we don’t need no STEENKING BADGES!!
    Our business is going down the tubes and their checking IDs of guys who have been there 30 years.

    GOOD GRIEF, I’m sure glad I didn’t where my turban to work today(lol)

    P-daddy, the terrorizors are winning, as we Americans have instituted such overly compensatory measure to “insure” our safety…………I believe many may say it’s misguided compassion.

    common sense has flown the coup!
