    No doubt, it's a sweet sounding gig if you can get it.

    This is dumb. The NFL needs to stay out of the business of enforcing NCAA punishment. Goodell needs to go.

    But something needs to happen. Players do whatever they want, screw their school, then run to the money. It is a huge issue.

    For the NCAA, not the NFL. They are two totally different animals. The NCAA needs to fix their house and come up with something that makes sense not expect the NFL to step up and do their dirty work.

    I don't see why they can't work together on this. Good move by the NFL or not, it's a step in the right direction. This crap (see Bigbull's post) has gone on a long time. The escape route needs to be closed.

    Two symbiotic animals. You can't say they aren't linked. It's basically a minor leagues. One thing on the NCAA side needs to be the crazy BCS and network money. It makes people desperate to win. Desperate means cheating.

    That's because they see the coaches, the grown-ups who should be setting the example, doing the exact same thing. And speaking of grown-ups who should be setting the example, what about the boosters and grown hangers on who slip players money or arrange "entertainment" or cars and whatnot? Don't leave the grown-ups out of this conversation.

    If this didn't happen, Goodell was gonna have some trouble on his hands.

    The dude lost his job?

    Do you think Tressel would have gone to coach with the Colts had he not been fired? I doubt it... he had the job he wanted and IMO would have probably retired there (not exactly a spring-chicken)... he lost that...

    I don't want the NCAA getting mixed with the NFL...
