Just like any other organization, the NCAA has rules that its members must follow. If you want to be part of the organization, the burden is on you to follow the rules. The NCAA has a list of things that are banned, some of which can be taken legally, and some of which can't. It is pretty simple. If you take a substance that is on the list, then you can't participate in the organization.

Why does the NCAA ban "illegal" substances?? Oh, I dunno. Maybe they don't want illegal activity in their organization? Just a guess.


Yalls reading comprehension skills fricking suck major truck nutZ.

This isnt a discussion about the merit of following organizational regulations.

Its a discussion about the value and justification of an organization, whos sole purpose to exist is to create and maintain an equal playing field for its member institutions, to have a regulation in place banning the use of substances that dont have ANY effect on said playing field.

Wurdz be hard.

A student's standing in the NCAA is not a right, it is a privilege. Follow their rules or GTFO. I am not sure how this keeps getting past you.


No. Its a problem.

No public entity, like many NCAA participating Universities are, should be controlled or governed in any way by a non-public, or in this case, a 501(c)(3) organization.

These quasi-public/private organizations and partnerships skew the lines of legality and the intent and mission of public institutions. Its a way to skirt the rules and create untouchable fiefdoms out of the reach of public scrutiny and control.

If a student enters a public University and that public University offers extra-curricular activities, then every aspect of those activities should be managed and controlled by the University or Universities participating. Said student shouldnt be subject to rules, regulations and restrictions that arent within the full purview of the University they attend.

I dont care if private Universities want to create sanctioning bodies outside of the control of their respective schools but in the case of public Universities those bodies must also be under public funding and control just like every other University sponsored activity.

Nah, I just think it reaffirms that you are being a dickhead about it and several posters noticed it.

The purpose of the drug-testing program is to deter student-athletes from using performance-enhancing drugs, and it impacts the eligibility of student-athletes who try to cheat by using banned substances.


Perfect. This should be the goal. One and only.

Member schools also may test for these substances as part of their athletics department drug-deterrence programs.


Member schools can and should be able to do whatever their students, constituency and revenue providers(the public) want.

The NCAA tests for steroids,

Whoaaaaa. Put the fricking brakes on. This is where they over step their bounds. "Recreational" drugs, unless found to enhance the performance of the athlete, should not be of any concern to the NCAA.

Nah.

I think it means Im right and you and your ilk are wrong and none of you challenging or even addressing my points is how Ive reached that conclusion.

But you just keep burying that head and deflecting.

at the risk of repeating myself:

Kristian Fulton was not being tested for weed. He thought he was, and panicked.

Ironically, had he simply accepted what he thought his fate would be, 1 year suspension for testing postive for weed, he could have peed in the bottle, and gone home, only to find out at a later date that he passed the test and would not have any suspension.

Its not that difficult. Free tuition, free room and board, opportunity to make millions in nfl and one of the few things you have to do is not smoke weed. Dumbasses still smoke weed.



You ever smoked weed?

It’s fricking great.

It’s not illegal everywhere.

I see no justification at all for testing for non-performance enhancing drugs. I do not see why it's legal to drink alcohol and not legal to smoke weed.

Pretty sure it's scientifically accepted that drunk/high people have slower reaction times and their inhibitions are lowered making them dangerous risk takers and more likely to get injured.



Then why are they not testing right before games?

Im well aware, Dave. Relax.

I wasnt responding specifically to the Fulton case but was speaking in general regard to the NCAAs policies.

I don't disagree with you one bit here, but this doesn't have anything to do with Fulton and the current state of affairs. Fulton cheated because he thought he was going to be tested for weed. He cheated the test on this false premise and was busted for cheating.

Drug testing is flawed in college football. Just about every football player smokes weed and a lot of it too. They really don’t care that much about pot trust me
