The panel that NCAA basketball asked to fix its sport after a federal probe revealed rampant bribery and corruption issued its recommendations for reforming the game on Wednesday.

In a 60-page report, the Commission on College Basketball told the NCAA it should consider eliminating the one-and-done rule, banning cheating coaches for life and allowing players to return to school if they don’t get drafted into the NBA.

“The goal should not be to turn college basketball into another professional league,” the commission wrote in its report.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice presented the commission’s findings to the NCAA board of governors and Division I board of directors on Wednesday at NCAA headquarters.

“The members of this commission come from a wide variety of backgrounds, but the one thing that they share in common is that they believe the college basketball enterprise is worth saving,” Rice told The AP Tuesday night. “We believe there’s a lot of work to do in that regard. That the state of the game is not very strong.”

At this point, it’s unclear which, if any, of the commission’s recommendations will be adopted in time for next season.

Maybe I'm confused, but isn't the 1 and done rule an NBA rule? So NCAA can recommend anything they want but they're recommending someone else change THEIR rules?

While I understand the reason for this, it raises some potential problems in my opinion.

It doesn't seem fair to require a school to hold the scholarship for a player (or multiple players) who wants to test the waters in the draft so they can return if not drafted

On the other hand, if you say undrafted players can go anywhere and play immediately, I can see most players who want to transfer declaring for the draft so they won't have to sit a year

Seems like it could get messy

I wonder how the Miller family is taking the fact that almost every article written about this situation either includes a picture of Sean Miller or mentions his name OR BOTH.

The fact that the FBI uncovered this and the NCAA did not (or chose NOT TOO) is telling.

It's like the #metoo activity and finding out that all these years some noted telecasters with BIG names in the main stream media (including FOX) were doing what they were doing and .... and a lot of people around them knew and either did not or could not say something because of the powers to be ....

It all depends on how deep the tentacles of corruption reach, and how much "money talks". The changes could be sweeping...or, they could just slap another year of probation on Cleveland State (the old joke from the '80s about Tark the Shark @ UNLV).

I will never understand why you would want to belong to a group who would treat you like that and think it's OK, or why you would want to treat someone else that way. (Though I get why a scholarship athlete would not want to lose their full ride / what they love to do)

What a bunch of a-holes for treating people like that.

swampy missed it because there's no link showing Donald Trump was involved.

I missed it because it lacked really good pictures.

While I agree that public humiliation like this is uncalled for, hazing has and will go on. It went on when I was in school from high school all the way through college. It happens in certain professions but may not be referred to as hazing, but some other PC term. Whether it was in a social atmosphere or in sports. Yes, there are different levels. But a little icy hot to the boys is a little different than some of the things that go on.

You can have some pretty fun team building with innocent hazing, it is finding that line and not crossing it...that is the problem.

I know a guy who pledged a black fraternity. Apparently (I would not know) the hazing there can be pretty brutal. The last thing they did was something like walk across hot coals (?), and on the other side, the guy's Big held out his arms and said "you made it, you're in!" The guy (who was HUGE) smiled, walked up to him, and punched him in the nose as hard as he could. Knocked out out stone cold.

He said, "I've never quit anything in my life, so you weren't going to break me. But I'll be da**ed if I want to be friends with a bunch of a**holes who treat people like you." And he left.

Now, some Ben Gay on the jewels. . . heck I'd do that to my best friend tomorrow if the opportunity arose.
