One more straw on the Camel's back...
Despite a subpoena ordering the release of specific evidence requested by North Carolina’s Secretary of State last July, the NCAA has repeatedly refused to provide any documents or recordings that could further impugn the University of North Carolina football program - or the NCAA itself.
Why does the State of North Carolina want the evidence that the NCAA cited to charge the UNC football program with nine major NCAA rules violations? (Allegations that ultimately led to the firing of athletic director Dick Baddour and head football coach Butch Davis.)
So State of North Carolina authorities can enforce the very same Uniform Athletes Agent Act that the NCAA itself lobbied the State of North Carolina to enact into law in 2000 - and currently touts on the NCAA.org website.
So, the NCAA won't help law enforcement in dealing with rogue agents?
But the NCAA is happy to drag out the process of investigating a school because they don't have subpoena power...waiting for depositions or court rulings.
The NCAA is playing with fire here. This isn't some disgruntled state attorney general pissing and moaning about the BCS. This is a tax exempt organization flouting the very law they lobbied for.
This could get messy.
The NCAA lost one court battle in Florida, with regards to the FSU case, over the same type of arrogance. State or federal laws are not trumped by rogue organization without consequence.
This is just another example of a so far out of control NCAA.
A house of cards waiting to implode...
