NCAA, meet head-scratching frivolity. You do that a lot, we realize.
The more stupid situations like this that go down, the less ground you have to stand on. This whole amateurism thing can't last forever, and you have to realize that, right?
Find a smart way to abandon it and maybe, maaaaaaaaaaybe when the reckoning comes for your organization, it can retain some reasonable scraps of power and carve out a more limited, focused, meaningful purpose more in line with reality.
But you have to wake up first.
