Default The NCAA Hypocrisy

Quote:
Boise State sophomore defensive tackle Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe has been reinstated by the NCAA and is eligible to play Saturday against Air Force, the NCAA told the Idaho Statesman on Wednesday. Boise State confirmed that Tjong-A-Tjoe will be available to play.

Tjong-A-Tjoe served a six-game penalty and still must replay the value of his impermissible benefits — $13,600, received from “a host family, which included Boise State boosters, both prior and after enrolling at the university,” the NCAA said. “These benefits included housing, meals, gifts, school supplies, travel, vacation, among other items.”

The statement from the NCAA says Tjong-A-Tjoe was reinstated “with conditions.” It’s unclear if there are conditions beyond repaying the benefits to charity and missing six games.

Tjong-A-Tjoe's case was the last of three involving Boise State players from Amsterdam resolved by the NCAA. The NCAA student-athlete reinforcement staff made its decision Tuesday.
a comment from the link...

This entire decision is outrageous and proves the NCAA claims of "student athletes" is purely fraudulent.

A minor moves to the US and, consistent both with common sense and US law, moves in with a family. The family houses him, feeds him, helps him with school, and, horrors of horrors, takes him on vacations like a family member! Just because the family, like other Boise families, supports the Broncos, these are impermissible benefits?

Does the NCAA now propose that students be homeless?

How would this be any different if the "host family" were his parents?

Along those line, diffreent sport, but



Lamar University is looking into whether new basketball coach Pat Knight violated an NCAA rule by allowing two recruits to speak with his father, former Indiana coach Bob Knight.

The Indianapolis Star reported that Indiana high school players Donnell Minton and Jason Smith, who both made oral commitments to Lamar, talked with Bob Knight by phone during a recent campus visit. Pat Knight, who played for his father at Indiana in the early 1990s, was hired by Lamar in April after he was fired by Texas Tech.

NCAA rules state that “All telephone calls made to and received from a prospective student-athlete (or the prospective student-athlete’s parents, legal guardians or coaches) must be made and received by the head coach or one or more of the assistant coaches who count toward the numerical limitations.”

Oh, and Pat's response to all of this was class Knight

http://www.beaumontenterprise.com/sp...on-2225328.php


"I didn't know it was against the law to have your dad say hello to recruits," Pat Knight said after practice Tuesday. "At least I'm not paying them. The NCAA should look into guys that are paying players and not worry about guys that are doing it the right way."

NCAA rules generally prohibit anyone other than basketball staff members from recruiting, the Star reported.

"I think it's (expletive), honestly," Knight said. "The guy is my dad. If he wants to say hello to a recruit, he can. If we get reprimanded, fine. They need to check into guys that are outright cheating instead of nickle-dime stuff like that."
