College Golfer Washes Car, Commits NCAA Violation
By Torleif Sorenson on 5/30/13
"The more laws, the less justice."
— Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.)
The NCAA seems h - e - double hockey sticks - bent on proving Cicero correct. Tiger Woods verbally let the NCAA have it when he was still a student at Stanford University; the NCAA had a meltdown over whether or not Woods paid for his own food one evening during a dinner date with Arnold Palmer. But as Yahoo!'s Jeff Eisenberg reports, the NCAA's "thought police" have stooped to a new low.

After a yet-to-be-identified West Coast Conference school self-reported a case where a women's golf team member washed her car on campus, consuming what is apparently unavailable-to-the-rest-of-the-student-body water and using a garden hose, the NCAA deemed it a secondary violation. The NCAA has demanded that the student-athlete repay the university $20, which would obviously cover the local market value of said water, as well as the leftover money obviously intended to be a "that'll teach you a lesson" fine.

This is a day and age when we can assume that actual, serious rules violations routinely occur most at universities with extremely high-profile football and basketball programs. The latest cases in the news involve Syracuse, Oregon, and the horrific Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State University. Why the NCAA wastes valuable time, effort, and taxpayer money on cases like this is utterly stupefying. Among those who agree are University of Portland basketball coach Eric Reveno and author Marc Isenberg:

"There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all."
— Peter Drucker (1909-2005), American writer, management consultant, "Father of Modern Management"

Newsflash people, there is this great invention called the world wide web which you can use to get a message across to, you guessed it the entire world. It's kind of like Twitter, except it allows you to use clear understandable English and compose full lucid sentences. Admittedly it is not for everyone, but those who have a weird hangup about communicating clearly, might like it.

C-4 says: about pay these kids for bringing so much money to these colleges. A student on scholarship can not work! What do these clowns expect kids to do. I thank God for working in the student center snack bar. I was able to eat and get a little change under the table. $500 a month, I upgraded from Natty Light to Bud Of course I ask for forgiveness now. Gotta do what you gotta do. But head coaches get paid millions!
