Players can point the finger at themselves

NCAA athletes should shoulder the blame when they take improper benefits from agents.

NFL must follow NCAA's lead, add bite to bark

There is no strict policing of agents. Agents' actions can get players and their collegiate teams in real trouble, but until the NFL and/or NFLPA takes a tip from the NCAA and elects to discipline those in their control -- the rogue agents -- the problem will continue to spiral out of control. It will take someone much more intelligent than I to come up with the legal mumbo-jumbo to get this thing fixed correctly. But, doesn't it make sense for agents to suffer similar consequences as the athletes should they be found involved in these cases?

Heads in the sand

The NCAA must step up and act to protect its players from opportunistic agents rather than simply handing down sanctions to college programs after the fact.

The blame game

Universities must provide personnel to teams to prevent agent interaction that may result in NCAA sanctions. College players cannot be held solely accountable.

An unsustainable system

NCAA athletes earn millions of dollars for their universities, coaches and administrators but receive very little in return for their performance. That must change.

New rules for schools

Colleges and agents need to be held accountable for improper dealings with NCAA athletes, and a new system needs to be established that does not punish innocent bystanders for the actions of past players.

Slotted salaries needed

Slotted salaries at both the NFL and NCAA levels would greatly reduce the influence of agents while also giving so-called amateur athletes the compensation they deserve for their performance on the field.

Strange move

Carroll leaving now makes little sense. He must know something that outsiders don't (is USC about to find itself in big trouble with the NCAA?).

No Trojan Horse

There should be more questions about whether USC can succeed without him than whether he can succeed in the pros.

Feckless in Seattle

It boggles the mind that any organization with a lick of football sense would pay over $30 million over five years to put him in charge.

Seattle's not his scene

Carroll good enough, smart enough... but a poor fit for the Seahawks

How will Carroll do as the Seahawks' coach?

Will the former USC Trojan coach see as much success in the NFL as he did in the NCAA? Weigh in...

Embrace transparency

It is in the best interest of the BCS to create a system that the average citizen believes is as open, fair and balanced as it possibly can be.

Ivory tower idiocy

The BCS could be remedied so easily it makes you wonder how some of these genius college presidents ever made it through freshman English.

Reward the champion, not a media darling

Until the NCAA is willing to devise a playoff system, however, college football will continue to be wracked with controversy.

Learning From College

Overtime is one of the areas in which I believe the NCAA has surged past the NFL in being more fan-friendly and fairer to the teams, themselves.

McCoy and Bradford Do

Although Heisman winning quarterback rarely make it, expect this year's winner to have a successful NFL career.

Sam I Am

Bradford has the build and the golden arm to make it happen.

What About Stafford?

The more you see of spread offenses in the NCAA, the more the NFL will have to view the stats they're seeing with a careful eye.

Education, Not a Curfew

The athletes are not doing the shooting, they're the ones getting shot.
