Coach K says schools leaving NCAA 'could happen'

From our Rapid Reports last night (and if you're wondering what Rapid Reports are, click here), Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski offered up an interesting quote about conference realignment and the somewhat unstable marriages of college and the NCAA.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski thinks if the NCAA wants to keep the top conferences, it needs to change its prospect contact rules.

“The old NCAA is no longer,” Krzyzewski said. “To go back can’t happen. The NCAA needs to change. I’d hate to see the top conferences not be a part of it, and that could happen.”
Many believe the big schools will one day shuffle away from the NCAA, once they have the money (read: power) to do so. When arguably the greatest coach in the history of the sport is talking like that's a possibility, the NCAA has a problem.

Today is ACC media day. I'm sure K may get asked about this once or twice.

I do not know what would take the NCAA's place.  The BCS controls the bowls, not the NCAA anyway.  Would there still be all the rules against everything?  Could the NCAA pay players?

I an not a fan of Duke but I do respect Coach K and what he has done.  And in this case he is right just look at the NCAA's track record ;  lack of consistancy in enforcement of rules,  no protecting the schools, or the players.......Thier motto should really be "Show Me the Money"

Good.  It would take someone like K to break the goons at the NCAA.

Let's hope so. Get out of this corrupt system. Form an organization of your own and set the common sense rules (no players should get special treatment, no players are allowed to play after failed drug test, etc.). At the same time, create your own network tv station to broadcast the games yourself if necessary.

Do you think a 1915 ford would be a better 2011 ford?

Most scholarship athletes use their scholarship $$ as a paycheck. Example- You get $1200 a month for room & board (cause thats how much a dorm would be). You use that money with 4 other teammates and pay $400 each for an apt. near campus; you now have $800 a month for bills, food, and life (more than I had in college). This is rarely pointed out because many college athletes who come from poorer backgrounds don't know how to handle this $$.
This is true, happens all the time and has been for 20 years. You can look into it if you want to know the truth.

vikingbob = moron.  as was pointed out by another user, Babe Ruth was a pitcher first (94 career wins) on top of that, he hit 714 home runs. Greatest Baseball Player Ever. Ty Cobb (arguably the greatest pure hitter, not home run hitter but pure contact hitter) couldnt pitch and Cy Young (greatest pitcher, at least by wins, hence the award named after him) couldn't hit like Ruth.

I'm not sure why the guy  who just commented thinks Babe Ruth is the best player of all time.  He is the most "legendary" player for sure, but do you think he could hold a candle to Puhols, Griffey jr., or some others,

When you learn how to spell Pujols, and when Griffey, Jr. "or some others" have a 4 year pitching line like below, and then retires as the home run king 336 home runs ahead of 2nd place. you can talk baseball
