    It's stories like this that demonstrate why the NCAA should be blown up and a new, much less retarded organization take its place.

    Nebraska is facing possible infractions because they were buying both the required and the recommended books for their full scholarship athletes.

    Apparently at some point in time the NCAA said "you know ... no! you can only buy the required books for student athletes. They're on their own for any recommended books."

    It's ridiculous. It's like they just hand out shit for the low hanging fruit but turn the other way when they KNOW that a kid is getting thousands of dollars in benefits. Money talks.

    And God forbid a university buy books for their athletes. You figured they would find ways around this, buying books for the library and then letting the athletes check them out for an extended period of time.
