SDSU's Coach Rants Against The NCAA In Postgame Presser

Before his team faced off against New Mexico State at 8:03 local time last night, San Diego State head coach Steve Fisher was told by the NCAA that the losing team would need to leave Spokane, Wash., and head home immediately after the game. By Fisher's calculations, that would have put his team at the airport at 1:00 a.m., had they lost, with a four-and-a-half hour flight ahead of them. Understandably, Fisher was not happy about this arrangement.

This may seem like a small thing to raise such a stink about, but it's a nice reminder that along with all of the macro-level ways in which the NCAA screws over student-athletes, there is plenty of small-scale bullshit thrown their way, too.
