    You know we had a perceived great AD that delegated football and basketball programs to guys that put his career at risk. His decisions hung him, despite a strong track record in most areas. I wonder if the new sheriff in town is going to have a different mind set.

    Bringing this one back up. Who's running the show at Waggener? Now hearing that because of academics the top 2 signees from there won't be eligible for college ball next year.

    UL needs to keep this kid. It only furthers their perception.

    Or the player dropped the ball, he is the one in charge of his academics and making sure he's eligible.

    Its 100% on the kid/parents to know if he is passing or not.

    It might not be a passing/failing issue. It could be just didnt take a required course.

    After going through all of this with my son, it's really easy to see how this could happen. If you aren't paying attention to the requirements, you can easily miss something you need. And if you don't start the process until the second half of your senior year, it can be too late to do anything about it.

    Well then half the blame is on the kid and half the blame on councelors. Kids know what they have to have to graduate.

    You are missing it, it may not be a High school requirement to take said class, but it may be a college acceptance to that school to take said class. Every college is different.

    Again, its on the player here.

    It's not just getting accepted. The NCAA has minimum requirements that must be met, and a whole process that must be followed in order to secure eligibility. The NCAA gives you a four year outline of what you need to do. And what you need to do will vary depending on which level you end up going...D1, D2 and D3 all have different requirements (as does NAIA). While the counselors need to be available to help students out, much of the responsibility to stay on course does fall in the students lap. If you're not sure what you need to do, you need to ask.

    It is very easy for all to miss something like this. Kid who graduated from Cov Cath with my son a few years backed, was accepted as a walk on at a Ky University, and after practicing with the team for a while, was kicked off the team. NCAA said he was not eligible to play because he did not complete something in High School. Kid was a good student who never missed school nor failed a class.

    Dont get me wrong the kids deserve a whole lot of the “credit” for getting themselves in this situation but if a permissive attitude at the school made this possible they deserve some of the “credit” as well.
