    No surprise here. Just a formality. Like another rug sweep.

    Re: Ex KU player Darrell Arthur's grades cleared

    Yep, not surprised at all. Remind me, didn't Lester Earl become ineligible at LSU, then get to transfer to KU and get to play right away? I seem to remember something like that. Nothing with KU surprises me. When a team can get a dead ball 3 pointer to count and end up being the difference in a game, anything is possible.

    Re: Ex KU player Darrell Arthur's grades cleared

    Found part of the story, don't read it if KU and the favoritism it gets bothers you:



    Lester Earl story - Bryan Burwell examines the messy divorce between LSU and Lester Earl, in which the former Louisiana high school star revealed LSU recruiting violations in order to transfer to Kansas, gain immunity from NCAA and keep all his years of eligibility.

    Burwell talks to the main players involved - former LSU coach Dale Brown, Kansas coach Roy Williams and NCAA violations official David Swank - except for one, Lester Earl. Burwell does talk to Earl's brother, Louis.

    Not speaking with Lester is unfortunate, though, because the piece mainly questions how a player can partially ruin a school's basketball program and walk away not only with immunity but with all of his years of eligibility - despite transferring in the middle of the season.

    "[Earl] used the system to his advantage and, when he got that advantage, everybody else fell by the wayside," said Thad Foucher, Earl's former summer league coach.

    I also had a problem with the sympathetic tones that the piece seemed to harbor toward LSU. While the severity of LSU's penalty from the NCAA can be debated, there is no doubt that LSU commited violations in its recruiting of Earl. And for that, the NCAA should have penalized the school.

    Re: Ex KU player Darrell Arthur's grades cleared

    Careful now .. we have plenty of KU lovers around here . . LOL

    When I think of KU . . I think of spoiled cheaters who have the ball rolling in their direction all the time. Also, how do these idiot players stay in college if they can't make grades in H.S.???? Oh, I forgot, they are student athletes. What a joke the NCAA really is.
