    SHOCKER - UCONN wins petition with NCAA......

    Its ironic that when Iowa State has petitioned the NCAA, we've always been rejected. In fact most non-iconic basketball progams are rejected.

    BUT - when an iconic program such as UCONN petitions the NCAA to allow a player eligibility, they get it.

    At what point does everyone understand the NCAA is really about protecting its premier markets and everything else is really secondary....

    What do you mean "at what point?" Aren't we already there? The "penalties" announced against Miami, earlier this week are a huge indicator that the NCAA is going the way of the dinosaur.

    Did Kerwin ever get a waiver to play this year? It was denied, but thought it was appealed.

    The NCAA is scared sh*tless right now because they know the BCS football leagues are very close to breaking from them.

    Fran Fraschilla has gone off on the NCAA lately. He came to the conclusion that the NCAA uses an Ouija board to make its decisions.

    Another reason Dickie V is good for the sport, as much as I can't stand his announcing.

    this. They're basically toothless, at the moment. Zero credibility. Hoping to ride the storm out and maintain a shred of relevancy in the years to come.

    Well if you wanted that, then you better say goodbye to ISU athletics as we know it. He's been banging the "pay the athletes" drum quite a bit, which would essentially make ISU irrelevant as a whole.

    Re: SHOCKER - UCONN wins petition with NCAA......

    I agree with Krqo;weif#%woeski on this one. There should be no exceptions; either all players sit out a year or no one does. Requiring a transfer to sit out a year is not inherently unfair; it only appears cruel when players' tragedies are weighed against each other to determine whether a waiver should be granted.

    Also, all players shouldn't lose a year of eligibility whether or not they have previously red-shirted.

    The "pay the athletes" doesn't change much (it's why it hasn't happened).
