This absolutely does NOT qualify as any sort of a bribe.
The second question is this: Other players who DID receive "improper benefits" nearly DOUBLING the amount A.J. got, which he donated back, got a slap on the wrist and 2-game suspensions. NCAA, DOES THIS SEEM LIKE LEVEL ENFORCEMENT OF THE RULES TO YOU?
No. No it's not. It's despicable, and the administration is a total joke and disgustingly proving themselves worthy of such characterization.
I'm sorry, NCAA, but if you're going to enforce these so-called policies of yours, you can't just willy-nilly hand out whatever you please without any sort of structure in place to handle and determine the severity of any sort of "infractions" that occur.
Yea that's what I don't understand The article details how the guy from Alabama is only getting 2 games for taking improper benefits valued at a 1,000's more than Green.
This leads me to believe they are "making an example" of the more high-profile individuals such as Green, which is complete bullcrap. It shows a blatant agenda and completely disrupts any sense of equality, which obviously the NCAA has no concern whatsoever for, based on this report.
