1. Leadership Failure
Finally, let’s hate on the NCAA and the so-called leadership in this ridiculous scenario that’s devolved into disaster. They’ve had months to come together and create a coherent plan but they absolutely blew it. Instead, the NCAA showed its weaknesses, and individual conferences had to make their own decisions.
In the long-term, this is simply a disaster for the NCAA. Nobody will trust them to do the right thing now. In sum, they’ve lost the trust of players, coaches, and even commissioners. They’re more vulnerable than ever before because of their own ineptitude.
