NCAA finally gets one right

mmm...how we love them sporlitickin' stories...

There has already been a limited ban on championship games in South Carolina because the State House flies the Conferederate flag -- not to mention all those trucks driven by the (game)cocks down there.

According to multiple reports, the NCAA is considering widening the ban to more sports and more postseason activity. (via Chicago Trib):

The NCAA will consider expanding its ban of championship events in South Carolina, possibly disallowing baseball and football teams from playing host to postseason games, because the Confederate flag is displayed on Statehouse grounds.

Robert Vowels Jr., head of the NCAA's Minority Opportunities and Interest Committee, said his group received a request from the Black Coaches Association about widening the ban. Predetermined postseason events, such as basketball regionals and cross-country championships, are now barred from South Carolina sites.

They may be hypocrites, money-mongers, and a band of idiots. But it appears that even a blind squirrel can find a nut once in a while.
