    Should Lucca have sold drugs?

    Ok help me out with this. JamesOn Curry sold drugs in high school but got to play suspension free from the NCAA. Lucca Staiger played on a high school team were two team mates were paid. Lucca got a massive suspension yet JamesOn gets nothing from the NCAA. Does this seem like a problem to anyone? Shouldn't the NCAA be more concerned about drugs then who played on a team were so and so got paid a stipend? Something smells like a huge turd.

    If you're looking at it like a decent, rational human being, of course not.

    If you are the NCAA, it is a resounding yes.

    Re: Should Lucca have sold drugs?

    What I find most amazing about this whole thing is that, as near as I can tell, Lucca might as well have been paid for playing. The maximum penalty under the NCAA "Amateur Certification" crap is a loss of 1 year of eligibility, which Lucca is being hit with even though he never took a dime. Maybe I'm reading this whole thing wrong, but he might as well have just been paid, since the penalty would be the same.

    btw, is it bad that I have always had an irrational hatred of JamesOn Curry because I thought his name was stupid?

    I hope he doesn't transfer to K-State or West Virginia, because we all know those coaches could get him on the court.

    Boo McDermott! Why must you be an outstanding and upright coach?!

    Wait getting paid is illegal? How does USC maintain it's empire? Didn't Reggie Bush get a house and a car? NCAA = Mafia

    NCAA has lost my respect. Just because he is from Germany, he is being made an example. Wasn't Curry from the carribean area?

    According to the precedents set by the NCAA in the Reggie Bush matter (among others), getting paid is NOT illegal, but NOT getting paid while playing on a team where two other players ARE paid IS illegal.

    That is why those dorks moved to Indianopolis in the middle of Big Ten country. They are out of touch. Just ask Mr. Tuff as Rain.

    Re: Should Lucca have sold drugs?

    The NCAA is just trying to look like it is doing its job. Cases like this one and the one against Jiri are nothing but a cover for the massive corruption going on inside the NCAA. They can't penalize the big revenue making schools because it would mean financial suicide. They have to look like vigilantes against the little guys while the big schools get away with murder. Honestly I bet if Jamie Pollard sent the NCAA a couple million dollars in a briefcase, we would see this issue resolved by tomarrow morning.
