    NCAA finally takes a look at Texas

    We figured it out here about 5 months ago, but then again we aren't being paid lots of money to police college athletics.

    Balbay to miss 'about 10 games' next year too=


    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    wow, someone should make a post telling them that ten games is a slap on the wrist and give them a link describing Lucca's situation. They seriously need a reality check.

    Wow, the NCAA is so just. They gave Texas a nice slap on the wrist. I'd like go give them a slap in the balls...the ****** off, heterosexual kind.

    "UT officials believe Balbay will lose about 10 games."

    Hmmm...Sounds familiar doesn't it? Wait until TX fans find out how much time he may actually have to sit out. Then the boards will really light up.

    Yes, but I would be very surprised if the NCAA followed through on the precedent they set with Lucca and Boeke and actually suspended Balbay for the whole year. It will be about a 10-game suspension, and the NCAA will be patting themselves on the back for following the rules.

    Re: NCAA finally takes a look at Texas

    How many games did Balbay play with the 'pro' team? That will probably determine the length of the suspension...

    I think it depends on how many games Balbay played on the team. If he played on the team for several seasons, then he should get the same 1 year forfeiture of eligibility (the maximum penalty). However, if he played fewer than 30-35 games (or however many there are in a full NCAA season), then I think they do a 1 for 1 suspension (10 games played, 10 games suspended). I bet a lot of people on this board will be following this story pretty closely.

    Re: NCAA finally takes a look at Texas

    Shouldn't Texas have to forfeit every game that Balaby's played in this year? I mean, if that's the spirit of the rule and how we would have been judged if we had played Lucca anyway...

    Balbay hasn't played in any games. He hurt his knee, underwent surgery, and is taking a RS year. Here's his ESPN.com profile: ESPN - Texas Longhorns - Dogus Balbay - NCAA College Basketball

    Re: NCAA finally takes a look at Texas

    Did anyone catch this bit:

    Nikita Mescheriakov, a freshman at Georgetown, was docked 10 games by the NCAA for playing briefly on a pro team in Belarus.
    I want to know how his situation differed from Staiger's and Boeke's. Georgetown and Texas are 2 prominent programs so yet another example how the bigger programs seem to get the breaks when it comes to stuff like this.


    Go Cubs Go!
