    The professional sports organizations need to start getting involved. If a player gets caught receiving money, gifts, services or etc. then NFL, MLB, NBA or etc. should refuse to allow that player to play in their organization. They also need to go after alot of these sports agents as well. They are some of groups of people who are giving out money, the gifts and so on. These guys could care less about the colleges or universities these players play for. They just care about getting that player to the pros so they get those big money contracts and get their cut of it. They don’t care about the trouble they leave the college teams to deal with. The NCAA and the universities can also do a better job of keeping a better eye on high profile athletes as well.

    They can attempt to clean it up by having tighter grips on the organization of the NCAA. The majority of the reports or violations comes as a result of persons volunteering info about violations or corruption (snitches). I don’t believe you have a great deal of NCAA investigators running around checking on every sports program in the country. The current process seems to be if you hear something then the NCAA will go and check it out. Hire more people to check on the schools more often and boost the economy by putting people to work. But I don’t believe that you can trully clean it up. Corruption will always be there.

    They can’t. As long as the NCAA exists and put forth rules and regulations to follow, you will always have those that will break them. Of course they don’t expect to get caught, so it doesn’t matter how tuff you enforce the rules, there will always be those that will break them.
