Another Freakin assinine NCAA rule situation

You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

Oklahoma officials said they'd been told Tuesday by the NCAA that the money raised by Fineberg would constitute illegal financial assistance under NCAA rules, because Mitchell's brother is a sophomore football player at Westfield and Fineberg is considered to be an Oklahoma booster.


It's due to the brother playing football for the same high school. Could look like "the college" (even though it's a booster) is raising money for the funeral with the intent of "buying" his younger brother to play for them. Nowadays, with lawsuits for tampering and all of that being tossed around like candy, the college has to be careful in this spot, and you can't blame them.

I do think what the booster is doing is cool though, and I hope the waiver goes through without any problems. ;-D

And RIP. :,-(

Yeah, I see why they had to call it off until they got things settled. On the other hand, I do hope it gets allowed because it sounds like the booster is just trying to help out and doesn't have ulterior motives. ;-D

It looks like the NCAA has come to their senses.

While the "letter of the law" says that this could be a recruiting violation, common human decency seems to have prevailed in this case.

The NCAA is doing the right thing here. ;-D
