NCAA clears Lance Thomas, but not its own reputation


The key phrase in that quote is “based on the information available,” as the NCAA, which lacks subpoena power in its investigations, apparently didn’t receive cooperation from either Thomas or the jeweler (as was both of their rights). So basically, the NCAA looked at a case where a college athlete was, based on the claim from a high-profile Manhattan jeweler, assumed to be able to pay a large amount of money within a 15-day window. And the NCAA can only shrug its shoulders because no one wanted to talk to them. (Sports Illustrated)
