Okay NCAA, this is getting out of hand. OK I get it, you want to make sure that you keep the student in the student athlete. I agree, but you know you are making millions and millions of dollars off of them so I think you need to relax a little on the punishments to the schools.
But this is absolutely uncalled for. A Boise State recruit was killed in a car accident. But due to the fact that he hadn't signed his letter of intent yet Boise state was unable to say or do anything about his funeral. They had to act like they had never heard of him before. What is up with that? Seriously? They couldn't even send flowers! How would this affect anything? I don't want to sound insensitive here but the dude is dead! You're not trying to buy his loyalty so he wont go to another school! And not one school will file a complaint because they feel that this gave Boise State a competitive advantage over them. So NCAA get your act together and realize that your rules are outdated and need to be looked at. And sometimes an exception to the rule is actually the right thing to do.
