Rasheem Dunn debacle the latest example of the NCAA’s incompetence

The NCAA took a major step in the right direction on Tuesday when it cleared the way for student-athletes to profit from their name, image and likeness, but the organization still has a lot of work to do if it truly wants to be for the athlete.

Willard took the Pirates to the NIT in his second year, but three consecutive dismal seasons followed. At the end of the 2014-15...

As I watched them discuss topics well beyond my comprehension, one question constantly...
