I'm sure you've read that along with the Derrick Rose SAT situation, news outlets are reporting on Robert Dozier being in a similar situation. A staff member from Lithonia High School wrote an anonymous letter stating that someone else took the SAT for Dozier, scoring a 1260. Georgia refused to admit Dozier, his score was invalidated, and then rescored a 720. Dozier ended up attending Laurinburg Prep in 2004-2005, then signed with the Tigers. Maybe I'm a little uninformed, but if he became eligible while at Laurinburg Prep, why does the faulty SAT score even matter? Or does it? Someone please tell me.
Secondly, the NCAA is meeting with Memphis to discuss the Derrick Rose situation, then will wait at least 6 weeks to make a decision regarding our 38 wins, our C-USA Championship, and our Championship Game appearance. Six weeks? Seriously? Can we move any slower? My real question is this: If the NCAA clears a player for eligibility, why is it Memphis' fault if he cheated in high school, and we didn't know about it? Why do we have to sacrifice everything for something that happened before he was even associated with our University? Shouldn't the NCAA be held accountable for clearing him to play, then deciding 2 years later to penalize us for it? Could you imagine the monstrosity of it all if Memphis had made one more free throw that day? Would Kansas be the new champion? Or would the 2007-2008 season be deleted from the history books?
On top of all the mess, the women's golf program was charged with major violations under ex-coach Jenny Bruun, who allegedly provided over $3000 in assistance to former players from '04-'08. Why does it seem like that after the coach leaves, the program takes the hit. Where's the accountability from the coaches? I wonder if the NCAA will ever consider fining coaches for such violations, even after they're gone.
