College athletics in general are a complete joke.
but this kid can't run a side business. What a farce.

I think Bloom lost that one.
And while this particular situation makes me very angry, I can understand the point of view of NCAA. There is definitely a slippery slope here.
Jermy Bloom was getting endorsement money to be an athlete. It seems like an important distinction in this case.
so - that sport is fundamentally different
the ncaa's stance on bloom was dumb
they should have held him up as an example of excellence - on the slopes, on the field, and in the classroom
plus - it's not like there is any crossover btw the X sports and NCAA sports
i don't think there has been anyone since who has been faced with the Bloom dilemma. The NCAA should have recognized that - made an exception and moved on.
