Jonathan Mahler with another “Who needs the NCAA?” analysis

Mahler offers a strong conclusion:

Once you start stripping away the senseless rules and regulations, the association’s multimillion-dollar compliance empire quickly crumbles. What’s left? An organization that hangs nets, keeps records and puts on a postseason basketball tournament that anyone would leap at the chance to run — and for a smaller profit margin.

Maybe the best NCAA is a nonexistent NCAA.
