Sources: Florida, NCAA probe allegation

This is the 4th school in less than 2 weeks that the NCAA has actually taken serious on the issue of agent-student-athlete relationships. Thought, is the NCAA doing the right thing? YES. This is a chance for the industry as a whole whether that be NFL,MLB, or NBA to be cleaned up a bit. 

UPDATE: Under Florida’s applicable statute governing athlete agents, an agent found guilty of giving Pouncey $100,000 would be guilty of a felony in the second degree in the State of Florida.  That agent could be imprisoned for up to 15 years along with getting fined up to $10,000.  Who would be the victim in this case?  The school?  The player?  A court could also force the agent to make restitution to any victim for damage or loss caused directly or indirectly by the agent’s offense.
