What Is Wrong With The NCAA And Their Stingy Rules?

Everyone knows what happened to Dez Bryant and how he was suspended by the NCAA for supposedly working out with Deion Sanders at an athletic center. Also he supposedly had dinner at Sanders house but the only people who know that or any other detail are Bryant and Sanders along with anyone who was accompanying them. 

So with all that being said it seems like the NCAA is saying any player in any collegiate sport can have no contact with any ex or current professional player. Clearly they shouldn't be working out with them but to have contact with them is different except if it's to receive advice with agents or ". 

Today I was just reading on ESPN.com that Terrelle Pryor had a little chit chat with Lebron James on how to overcome adversity, or something along the lines, while the Cavaliers played at Ohio State. 

And then on top of that there are all of the players who's relatives played or are playing in the NFL who have more then likely come in contact with ex or current players. 

So if Dez Bryant can't hang out with Deion Sanders and get advice why would it be ok for anyone else to hang out with a ex or current professional players? 

I tried to find the rules or a more in depth explanation on the NCAA website but it is impossible. All I got from the NCAA were the rules for playing football and you had to call for other rules and regulations.
