The NCAA legislative council will consider 91 changes to rules, mostly inane ones, when it meets next January. That itself isn’t news.
But take a look at Proposal No. 2011-78 set forth by the Big East that would allows schools to offer spreads such as butter, cream cheese, jelly or peanut butter on top of bagels they provide for recruits. Currently, schools are only allowed to provide spreads for their own student-athletes.
We’re not kidding.
It looks like the NCAA has its watchful eye on all the minutiae in college sports, but it took eight years to realize that schools like Miami (FL) had boosters offering extravagant benefits like large wads of cash, yacht rides and prostitutes.
Yeah, that sounds about right.
