    Colgate Freshman Ineligible - NCAA, R U SERIOUS?

    The NCAA's hypocrisy at its finest. Feel bad for this kid. He attends a prestigious college and gets slapped with a year's suspension. Meanwhile the "big boys" get by.Nathan Harries of Colgate Raiders denied year of eligibility for playing in church league - ESPN

    It'll get reversed. This is one of the things I like about ESPN. They make some stupid "big-man" decisions popular and the "big-man" changes his mind.

    It's this type of stuff that will lead to the BCS breaking away from the NCAA. They will probably survive as an organization because the tourney is such a big deal, but football will soon take their ball and play by themselves.

    The NCAA is a huge joke. I do hope the system crumbles and gets rebuilt.

    Re: Colgate Freshman Ineligible - NCAA, R U SERIOUS?

    It'll get reversed I'm sure, but it doesn't change the fact that these kinds of things seem to routinely happen. I would love to see what is actually going on in these meetings when they make these decisions.

    As if the problems regarding making money weren't enough, the NCAA is just making themselves look worse with decisions like this

    Isn't it pretty obvious they just embarrass themselves with crap like this and Okorro? It's in their own best interest to police and reform themselves. Not a month goes buy without a huge negative PR story like this.

    I don't think that they can help it.

    I read an interview with a former NCAA compliance officer. He said situations like these, the ruling happens with no one really looking at it. Like a pre approved loan. No one looks over your credit history, just your number and HEY! You could get up to a 200k loan this weekend! Then you go in and you actually can only get a 130k loan.

    Cases like this get an automatic ruling before human eyes see it. This interview was during the MTSU issue referenced in the article and the guy was saying he was confident it'd be reversed because it would be looked over by a real person now.

    You'd think with all the money going through college sports they could at least hire a person to actually look at these things. This is just pathetic. Of all the things they claim to do, it would be nice if the NCAA actually tried to care about student athletes

    Reminds me of the one year post season ban in all sports they gave Caltech. They really like to drop the hammer on these crazy colleges that care more about academics than sports.

    IIRC, he explained it as if there are 500 cases that need to be reviewed in a months time, time wise it's easier to give a blanket ruling and the ones that don't deserve that judgement will appeal and human eyes will see it. And those that know they are wrong, accept their penalty.

    It is kind of backwards IMO. But it makes some sense.
