    Huskers to Test NCAA Scholarship Limits

    They want to keep an injured player on scholarship who won't play, but would put them at 14.

    I wonder when the resident 'sker apologists will be here to defend.

    Oh wait, I forgot this is about basketball . Their fans are hanging out at Perrault's Creighton site discussing how this is their year with the Jays poised to win the MVC and a NCAA tournament game. (which by the way is 1 more than Nebraska has ever won in the tournament)

    Re: Huskers to Test NCAA Scholarship Limits

    What did Fennelly do with Brittany Lange's scholly? Was she allowed to keep it or did they find another way of keeping her around as a student coach?

    I thought that you could keep them on as student assistants or something like that. Didn't we do that with the linebacker that got injured a couple of years ago?

    I think the linebacker you are talking about is Adam Carper.

    Years ago Walden kept a kid from Boone on scholarship after he sustained a career-ending injury as well.

    Britt was not on scholarship so that is not applicable. She did however stay on as a student coach, but is not on scholarship.

    Re: Huskers to Test NCAA Scholarship Limits

    Here's a quote from the article:

    "Like other recent German club players, the 6-foot-8 wing is subject to a one-year NCAA penalty for playing on a team that paid some members, even though he earned nothing more than allowed expenses.

    Now, Sadler said, Standhardinger seems determined to come to Nebraska even if he has to sit a year.

    Nebraska hopes that NCAA legislation set for a vote in August 2010 that would lift the penalty from such players — labeled “vicarious professionals'' — might be applied to those enrolling for the coming season. No timetable has been set for a possible ruling."



    Wouldn't it be just our luck for the NCAA to change this rule after they already screwed Luca? Unbelievable.

    We've done this same thing with several football players. Carper, as was mentioned, but we did it with Corey Wierson, Taylor Schrage and Landon Streit to name a few and maybe a few others.

    I don't think the problem is with them keeping an injured player on scholarship. Rather Nebraska is over the NCAA scholarship limit - not just by one, but by 2 if the injured player counts against the limit. Don't know if it does or doesn't but the article makes it seem like it doesn't.

    Regardless they are still over and want to petition the NCAA to allow the extra. Doc's defense is that he can't count. This is no different than Miss. St and their FB program, just that Nebraska thinks they can get the NCAA to let them get away with it.

    Don't know the particulars with Carper et. al, but I doubt ISU petitioned the NCAA to allow the FB program to be over th 85 scholarship limit.

    Re: Huskers to Test NCAA Scholarship Limits

    That is a medical hardship and if they take it means there playing career is over. It is a way of letting a player finish school after a career ending injury and not count against the scholarship limit. ISU has used this to let players finish college, some have helped out with the team.

    Yes, Balham is going to be on Medical Scholarship and won't count against the overall team total of 13. Problem is, even without Balham, they are still at 14.

    I think (best guess here) is that since Standharding was just now cleared by the NCAA to play on 08/22/09. He's been committed and the NCAA has had the paper work for roughly a half year. Since Sadler didn't know if he'd be cleared or not and the NCAA took such a long time, Sadler continued to recruit and had an additional player accept a scholly.

    No one really knows how this will shake out at this point. On of these players may have to pay there own way this year. Standhardinger will most likely be ineligible since he played on a team where others where paid (same as Staiger) although the NCAA is reviewing this rule.

    Looking forward to having a team with some Big XII size and athletism. I firmly believe Doc is one of the top 4 coaches in the Big XII. It's be fun watching his team's over achieve so far. He just needs to get in more talent, which might be why he's in the mess above. GBR!

    Nebaskans are either Creighton or Kansas Basketball fans.

    How pathetic is that? No one in Nebraska cares about Husker Basketball.

    Except for the 10,258 that showed up on average for each home game last year. Not great, but far from "No one". ISU averaged 12,489, or just 2,231 (18%) more.

    So Iowa State averaged 2,231 more people per game than NU. In football, of course, Nebraska averaged 85,070 while ISU averaged 46,617 for a difference of 38,453 (45%).

    So really it's a much more valid arguement for Nebraska fans to say that no one in Iowa cares about Cyclone football.
