Congressmen Bobby Rush Compares NCAA To The Mafia

When it comes to how the NCAA treats its athletes, Illinois Congressmen Bobby Rush has an interesting comparison. The NCAA is like the mafia.


Rush made the accusations during a congressional forum on college sports after talking to some parents of college athletes who were injured and treated poorly by their respective school.


The Congressmen asked that the NCAA " look at the impact of “back-room deals, payoffs and scandals” in college sports".


The NCAA has yet to issue a response.
