    Lucca appeal - anything new?

    I thought we might hear something by now.

    Anyone with access to any rumors on campus have anything new?

    This is the NCAA...Remember it took them from May until October to rule him inelligible in the first place.

    Re: Lucca appeal - anything new?

    I have heard ISU sought a reduction of the suspension to 8 games because Lucca only played in 8 games after the rule was put in place. However, I am not getting my hopes up. I just hope Lucca doesn't give up a free education because the NCAA has draconian rules.

    Re: Lucca appeal - anything new?

    The website and petition have gotten some attention overseas by some private German basketball organizations, like a company that makes sports gear and another group that runs a basketball community website.

    Otherwise it seems things have stalled.

    I emailed the eligibility person on the contact page of www.freeluca.com. If we bother them enough maybe they'll take notice and make a decision.

    If you bother them enough to make a decision, you probably won't be happy with the decision. If Jamie makes an appeal for fans to take an active role, it would be a different story. I'm not aware of any such desire on the part of the athletic department. The NCAA doesn't give a hoot about popular opinion so the bigger risk is that some well-meaning fan could end up screwing up any chance that Lucca has to get a fair outcome.

    While they might get irritated I would be amazed if they were unprofessional enough to let the actions of fans anger them into a decision that is worse than the facts at hand merit. Similarly, it will likely not help beyond encouraging them to weigh the facts carefully before acting.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    This argument's the only one I've heard that makes an ounce of sense.

    They are like refs at NCAA - they are human and make mistakes in judgement. They also need a play review system to get it right...
