My point is that the NCAA didn't change any rules and they should be protecting amateurs, like the student athlete who will get the scholarship instead of Williams.
Williams complaint should be with the NFL, whose eligibility rules 'changed.' They are the ones who should make the gesture, not the NCAA. If the NFL feels they warned Williams of this situation and he took the risk anyway, then he lost a bet and should relax. He'll soon have his millions.
