This week the NCAA plans to release the names of the schools under investigation for fraud in their academic standards, which is causing a bit of an uproar. The backlash is not coming from the public but more so from the schools in question. They are stating that it is unfair on why they were chosen. Obviously the NCAA was tipped off about the activity going on in their institution and that is why those particular schools are under examination. here is not anything unfair (as far as which schools are pick) about it and the NCAA does not need to do any explaining. If the schools take or threaten legal action, doesn't that make them a little more suspicious? If you are a "legit" school let the NCAA run its inquiry and not think twice about it? The unfair part does come into play for the athletes that were honest and not just pushed through the system. Those athletes face the possibility of not being eligible to receive scholarships for their freshman year, or being able to receive the scholarship but not be eligible to play the first year. This is something the NCAA seriously needs to look at. Being that they started this process very close to the start of the 2006 Fall Semester is not fair to these athletes who thought everything was cleared for them to start college in the fall. Either grandfather them into old system or develop some way to test their knowledge to prove that they were not just handed a diploma. I am with the belief that the NCAA should just let this final class slide by and start with the notion that a certain list of schools are under investigation starting in the fall of 2006. A detailed report should be published and distributed to the schools, parents, and students to let them decide on the validity of the accusations. That way they have a choice whether or not to stay with the school or move to another based on their research. I applaud the NCAA for their idea but they need to rethink their course of action a little.Most thought when the story broke a few days ago about the NCAA checking into validity of non-traditional high schools that it was just a bunch of smoke or another unjustified threat by the NCAA.
