NCAA looking bad in defamation lawsuit

So full disclosure here: if you didn't already know, I am an alumnus of the University of Southern California, a fine institution.  I was disappointed when the NCAA dealt out severe penalties against the USC football program a couple of years back, for running back Reggie Bush's family receiving benefits from a booster.  What caused the penalties against the school, though, was the NCAA's claim that an assistant coach knew about the benefits to Bush's family.  That assistant coach, Todd McNair, is pretty much persona non grata in college coaching now because of those NCAA charges against him.

Well, McNair claims that the NCAA made up evidence and he has sued the NCAA for defamation.  Evidence is starting to appear showing that the NCAA may have been malicious in going after McNair, possibly fabricating evidence against him.  The NCAA has even tried to seal evidence from the public, but a judge has refused.

Here is an opinion piece discussing the situation; the NCAA does not smell good in all of this, and that is fine with me.  Not because USC didn't deserve to be punished; the school deserved some punishment if for no other reason than that then athletic director Mike Garrett acted like an arrogant ass toward the NCAA and its investigation.  But the punishment was far too severe given the alleged infractions, and in arguably more egregious infractions by other schools soon after, those other schools (e.g., Ohio State) got much more favorable treatment.  The NCAA is not consistent or transparent at all in its actions, and that's what burns me about the USC situation.

It looks like the NCAA is going to have some transparency forced on it pretty soon.  I see that as nothing but good.

It hurts a little when I see some news like this. Our law should actually protect the educational system but instead we are killing it. We have to find a solution for all these. I hope someone will help the schools for this. cheapest cable

They do this all the time

It is impossible to look good for them as long as they do what they do. I totally agree with you.

These vigilance departments

These vigilance departments must have keen look at the evidences what they get when they investigate the cases. Simply fabricating the evidence don`t help them to run the case in the court as per superiorpapers quality reviews. This is very bad mark on NCAA facing defamation charges on. It being a good recognized association getting this type of allegation will spoil the reputation of it.
