'As part of a new streamlined approach, the NCAA might indeed use private investigators on a contract basis to observe subjects.
“Literally, if they could mobilize someone in a matter of hours as opposed to us putting someone on a plane it’s a timeliness issue,” Roe Lach said. “That, to me, is where we need to stay ahead of the curve.”
Dodds and Ends - NCAA considers using private investigators
If they use an investigator from a certain area to investigate a rival school this would allow too much bias... This wouldn't work
A year or two too late, another late rule change that should have been implimented earlier.
Good point actually. Or use a PI that lives in Ann Harbor to investigate UM. Same flaw.
They should just hire Clay Travis and SbB.
This sounds like a problem waiting to happen. They will need an impeccable vetting process to make this work.
Though, bias is certainly still possible with the current ncaa investigators.
On the other hand...The bias is there in the current system anyway..I just think of examples like fat Phil and the penalties on Ohio St...I could not imagine the windfall of money going to any *U affiliated PI's and what scenarios they could concoct.
No good can come of stuff like this.
REC Investigations opening in Opelika soon.
There are plenty of Barn PIs available. They have done a crack up job calling Bama recruits, going through their garbage, and sending packages to Indy.
If they are going to use PI's then they need to get the ability to subpoena. Without the authority to require someone to tell the truth the NCAA can only go as far as the rats will lead them.
