    What Happened with the Sedrick Johnson LOI Issue?

    Sorry, I may be out of the loop, but what was the conclusion of the issue with Sedrick Johnson. I know his ISU LOI was considered good, but will he be punished for the T A&M LOI?

    Doesn't appear so, thankfully.

    Will aTm be punished? Is there an investigation by the NCAA as to what happened?

    it's funny how this story fizzled... it seemed like a **** storm for a day or two, and I of course was as upset and confused as everyone else when the story broke, but I'm glad as heck SJ will be in cardinal and gold.

    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Turns out he ate chinese at the same restaurant, AND at the exact same time as Patriots WR Randy Moss. The NCAA has declared Sedrick inelegible for the 2008 season. Gene & Co. will be appealing this one for sure!

    I actually think we have a chance at winning this one.

    Re: What Happened with the Sedrick Johnson LOI Issue?

    Speaking of SJ, does anyone know how his academics are coming along? It would be a travesty for us to sign that caliber of player and not have him make it here...same goes for Harper and Haughton I guess. Yet, as an ISU fan nothing really surprises me anymore haha

    Re: What Happened with the Sedrick Johnson LOI Issue?

    You are going to have to be patient with the NCAA on this issue. They are very busy still working out a good cover up for the Reggie Bush accepting money at USC issue, and in the last two months they have now had to work out a cover for Kelvin Sampson committing the same violations again. Trying to get these two things pushed under the rug so it doesn't hurt BIG members is very important. They will deal with us little guys and our problems later. I am guessing A&M will inform them on what they would like to happen, then the NCAA will oblige and impose ISU with some penalties for recruiting a player that was "out of our league."

    True, this is a good question. Sometimes you need to take a chance on guys though and trust them. I don't know if you remember but Rubin barely made it to ISU. Good luck to everybody.

    Jusy wondering if our athletic department has a legal advisor - and if so, did they receive their law degree from EIU?

    Well, in fairness to the NCAA they did have to put the Reggie Bush and Kelvin Sampson cases on hold while they focused on a more high profile case -- Lucca Staiger.
