    Mayo forgiven by NCAA - Donates to Charity

    It's good to see that the NCAA is making consistent choices across all school and all players.

    ESPN - Mayo violates NCAA rule; makes donation to charity - Men's College Basketball

    What a joke... not even a game. For every time Mayo and these other guys get caught they don't get caught probably 10 times. The NCAA is a joke.

    This is just pathetic. If you can read my sig picture, that explains how I feel about the Lucca case. This is pathetic, stupid, and blatant favoritism.

    Yeah, Lucca never took anything, not even a couple of tickets, and he's gone for a year. So much for following the rules.

    Re: Mayo forgiven by NCAA - Donates to Charity

    I don't know why, but I saw nothing wrong here. They have been friends since he was in middle school.

    I thought I remembered about Seneca giving Lane and some others tickets when Seneca was a rookie and Lane and others were still at Iowa State.

    Re: Mayo forgiven by NCAA - Donates to Charity

    I suppose this will be a tax write-off for Mayo's family. So the actual amount paid is less than the ticket value. Also, wonder if the $460 is face value or market value, if only face value then he still received and unfair advantage and a gift.

    I don't think the NCAA likes the Cyclones.

    Melo and Mayo are friends, he shouldn't have even had to give the money to charity. It's pretty crappy that he couldn't even accept something from a friend...

    Keep that on the freaking DL....we'll lose 16 scholarships if the NCAA finds out.

    NCAA - Not Consisistent / An Abomination

    The NCAA also wants Omaha to build a new stadium at $115M for the College World Series to replace Rosenblatt. They will not come out and say it - instead they choose to hide behind the Mayor Fahey's dress. They said they went hotels around the venue. They may move it to other cities like San Antonio, Orlando, Indianapolis.

    The NCAA is like some churches that we all know - it is about the amount money. Miles is well paid.
