The National Collegiate Athletic Association's failure to enforce its rules in recent months has encouraged rogue football coaches and boosters to break rules with impunity, the commissioner of the Big 12 Conference said in an unusually public critique Monday. The Des Moines Register and other publications reported on the comments of Bob Bowlsby at the conference's media days, in which he essentially argued that there is little reason for colleges not to cheat right now.
"Enforcement is broken," Bowlsby said. "The infractions committee hasn't had a hearing in almost a year, and I think it's not an understatement to say that cheating pays presently. If you seek to conspire to certainly bend the rules, you can do it successfully and probably not get caught in most occasions."
