    Article about eligibility

    Some interesting stuff which can relate to Lucca's situation.

    Link:
    NCAA Amateur Status For Foreign Student Athletes.

    Gets good on page 2 and 3. Interesting quote from Bobby Knight near the end.

    Re: Article about eligibility

    This is the only thing that even mentions how the NCAA goes about determining how to set eligibility for foreign players, thought some might like it.
    Thanks

    Edit:
    Maybe if someone could find the contact info for some of the people mentioned in the article, we could get their direct feedback about Lucca. Does he have his own forum here yet, he might as well : )

    Re: Article about eligibility

    I like Bobby Knight's comments:

    Texas Tech men's basketball coach Bob Knight, who often cuts against the grain when the topic involves NCAA governance, has a suggestion for dealing with the amateur status of international athletes.

    "Logic should be applied," he said. "If a kid has passed his Ninteenth birthday or Twentieth, whatever any athlete playing anywhere through the age of Eighteen can be a kid that you can recruit. And 4 interns don't have to sit and study some country they have no idea where the hell it is to begin with ... and then determine that this kid is or is not pro. We would have 1 simple rule to take care of it.
    "That seems to me to be a really good way to get it done easily, efficiently and cheaply. So those are 3 great reasons for the NCAA not doing it."

    Lucca was ages 15-17 when he played on the club team in Germany. He was just a kid... so what if he played with a couple guys who were making a tiny amount of money? As I recall, they interviewed one of the guys who played with Lucca (he was an American) and he only made something like $500/month. If the NCAA is going to implement a new rule, they need to do it PROSPECTIVELY. That way everyone knows the rules from the beginning.
