    Masoli case/decision similar to Royce?

    Hearing the news that Masoli has been turned down for the transfer waiver really doesn't sound good for the upcoming decision for Royce White. The cases are similar - athlete sits for a whole season at one school because of suspension and then upon transferring to another school, tries to get a transfer waiver. I know the NCAA looks at cases on an individual basis, but the decision does not look good, IMO.

    Didn't Masoli play at Oregon last year?

    Correct. A similar scenario related to ISU MBB would be "Jake" Anderson transferring here from Northern Illinois

    Except Jake graduated first

    Edit: Maybe Masoli did too...I guess I didn't follow it too closely



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    He did. It sounds like the issue is with him being dismissed from the team at Oregon. Sit out a year, redshirt. In any event, it doesn't sound great for Royce...

    Re: Masoli case/decision similar to Royce?

    So why did he get denied? Was he not smart enough to check whether Oregon offered Parks and Rec as a graduate program? (not sure why that should ever be a graduate program, maybe I'm missing something).

    No, Masoli didn't graduate. You don't need a waiver if you have graduated.

    Masoli did graduate. The reason the waiver was denied was because Oregon meant to suspend him for the year, and his going to Ole Miss means that he is subverting punishment.

    That's right. I read the articles wrong about his being suspended for a whole year. I assumed it was last year... not this upcoming year. I can definitely see why the waiver was denied now. Not really a big similarity to Royce's situation I guess.

    Thanks for correcting me, fellas.

    Re: Masoli case/decision similar to Royce?

    Per the video in this link, ESPN reports the NCAA cited a rule within the student-athlete transfer rules which require any transferring student-athlete that was dismissed from his previous team to sit out a year before becoming eligible to play regardless of any mitigating circumstances.
    I fully expect Royce White to play his first games as a Cyclone in the 2011/2012 season, and everyone else in this forum should too.


    P.J. Farmer rocks!
