Last week, Miami (The U) President Donna Shalala's strong statement in response to the NCAA's Notice of Allegations brought more attention to a situation that continues to escalate...the NCAA's inability to govern.

The NCAA, a place where you can: Trademark your nickname & reap the financial rewards. Put cream cheese on a bagel during a campus visit & receive a sanction. NCAA enforcement & rules continue to baffle us all.

Despite the NCAA's Executive Committee recently endorsing President Mark Emmert (unanimously at that) & making their "vote of confidence" public, there seems to be a growing opposition to Emmert's leadership amidst decisions that chip away at the credibility of college sports' governing body.

On this week's show, the GCL Crew revisits several of the questionnable decisions the NCAA has made recently and debates the validity of the criticism Emmert has received from all corners of the sports industry. 

In addition to our discussion of the NCAA, we'll talk about Manti Te'o's performance at the NFL Combine, if the Lakers make the playoffs, and what impact Tom Brady's restructured contract will have on Joe Flacco's contract negotiations.

Join us as we share our take on the state of the NCAA Wednesday at 1pm ET on Game Changers Live.
