In case you’ve been in comatose, there’s been quite the hot button issue stemming from an HBO report on an upcoming episode of “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel”. The report, airing tonight at 10 E.T. on HBO, is expected to reveal damaging testimonies of Auburn players getting paid, and Ohio State recruits getting…
Well, you understand.
Specifically, former Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez.
Rodriguez will appear as a panel member on tonight’s episode, and go figure, he has some thoughts about the governing body that caused him, and two recent former employers, some serious headaches.
A statement released by HBO obtained by the Detroit News says that Rodriguez felt while the NCAA had a clearly defined purpose, its methods of execution were somewhat less than sound.
“Those young folks are being offered opportunities to be able to help them for their next job,” Rodriguez said via the statement. “As coaches, recruiters and universities, they need to make sure that this is what you’re going to school for.”
But Rodriguez continued, “And I also think it may be a little misguided. I think sometimes, instead of going after the bank robbers, we’re going after the parking violators.”
