IMO, a school has to accept the NCAA decisions on eligiblity so if the NCAA says they are eligible why punish a school for playing a kid that they were told is eligible. If something changes than sit them from that point forward. It would be like your employeer changing policy and then punishing you for not following the new policy in your past actions.
    I agree somewhat. I just think the Derrick Rose evidence came out after he was drafted.

    I could be wrong but I thought there were red flags. Then he was cleared for the season, only to be disqualified after new evidence post season.

    Kentucky fans think if you get paid and pay back all the money you should be eligible.

    That's how I remember it. Red flags but no hard evidence. Eligible. New evidence emerged later. Disqualification kicked in.

    You must be thinking of Kansas fans.

    The Kansas guy paid the money back and got to play.

    The Kentucky guy payed the money back and didn't get to play.

    After reading through this thread, this paragraph from an earlier post is the most interesting in the thread to me. Does this mean the NCAA saw payments to Bamba and since no school was involved there was no violation?

    From what I understand, Greer Love is concidered a legal guardian/mentor.

    In NCAA eyes they are family. At least that is my understanding of it.

    I just watched it. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Johnson wasn't on the academic team in college.
