    Re: Chat w/Bilas...my question's up!

    Nicely done! Especially posting the link for freelucca.com

    Ryan H. (Saint Paul, MN): Jay, Have you heard of the situation where the NCAA has suspended two players, Lucca Staiger of Iowa State, and Fabian Boeke from Wash. St.? These guys were playing on a German team that paid two other guys on the team, unbeknownst to the now suspended college athletes. Neither Staiger or Boeke received any money, yet they are slapped with a ONE YEAR suspension...what gives??? FreeLucca.com
    Jay Bilas: (3:59 PM ET ) Yes. Apparently pros have some sort of professional disease that players can catch if they simply play on the same team. I have never liked this rule, and never will. The Euros have a different system than we do, and it is silly to expect other countries to act in a manner that we feel is appropriate. Plus, how can these kids be tainted when a kid can play major league baseball and make millions and still be eligible to play as an amateur in college. Ridiculous. Also, Free Jeremy Bloom! Even though he is in the NFL!!

    Well, Bilas is now on our side, and he's as close to the "end-all-be-all" of opinions when it comes to college basketball. The NCAA better be shaking in fear

    I just happened upon the chat as I was checking ESPN, and madly typed out a quick question in the hope I wasn't too late. It got right on!

    The FreeLucca plug was a nice touch, if I do say so myself.

    Cookies for me, anyone?

    To those that are administering freelucca.com...

    Please add this question/response and the other one from yesterday's ESPN chat to the site.

    Kind of like a testimonial thing.

    Re: Chat w/Bilas...my question's up!

    I am not easily impressed, but the collective effort to raise this issue up through emails, petitions, websites, etc. is nothing short of impressive. Nice work!
