We've got Allen Kenney on the podcast today the proud Sooner behind Blatant Homerism a fellow Bloguin site. This week Allen got a chance to get Frank Cullen on his podcast to discuss a 1996 study commissioned by the NCAA to look into rule breaking and the "criminology" behind the actions. Allen's on to first discuss the discussion he had with Cullen and what the research found with regards to how widespread violations actually are in the sports of college football and basketball. Talk gets into what factors do and more importantly DO NOT play a role in determining if players are likely to partake in behavior that is considered "against the rules."
Then, on the heels of yesterday's amnesty to initiate a discussion article here at ITB, Allen and I start to look into possible solutions. Would amnesty help? What sort of conditions with regards to restructuring would need to be laid out for this "amateur" system to continue? Most importantly, would we be better served calling it what it is and just going forward in that manner laying all the cards on the table instead of keeping up the charade for the romantics who enjoy it?
It's a great show and Allen Kenney, as always, is a great guest and the discussion is a good one.
