"It's a lot easier being a drug dealer than an AAU coach" - this guy. Tell me something I don't know. I mean, don't think but have never tried either.
OT-Clowney academically eligible?
he would not have qualified to come to Michigan. Another huge disparity with the SEC and other southern schools.
Uh we had four kids sign last year who turned out not to have the grades to qualify anywhere.
Who in the hell comments on a kid's grades like that? If he is a D student, let the NCAA take care of it, which I am sure they will once he picks a school.
If he passes the clearinghouse there is no way he is not admitted into any of those 3 schools.
Whichever school he chooses to go to (South Carolina in all likelihood), they'll find a way to get him eligible. Even if that means getting him "diagnosed" with a learning disability, which I've heard is a probability. Isn't that how Michael Oher got into Ole Miss?
I see that his high school coach said that he'd "bet a million dollars" that Clowney would qualilfy.
In the SEC, that might just be a bet that a well-placed coach or booster could cover. And win.
Maybe this is why he has been waiting to decide?
why is the Hargraves coach publicly talking about his student's grades? Jesus
He's talking about his student's grades because someone publicly disparaged them in a national newspaper.
But you don't go on the record and say your student has a lot of D's on his transcripts. I have a feeling the Hargraves coach is about to be out of a job or reprimanded pretty soon. I know it's a violation to do it in NCAA, but there's gotta be a similar rule in High School, no?
"Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student's education record."
He doesn't play at Hargraves. Still probably improper.
oh ok thanks
I can't tell if that makes it better or worse
I'd have to imagine you could get a ham sandwich academically eligible at those schools once you proved it could tackle.....
Jerelle Powe is the one you are thinging about that went to Ole Miss.
There's a smartass retort about a certain CB in there somewhere.
Yeah he's definitely not coming here...stick to the $ec
The sec will make sure to use enough grease to get this D Challenged student into a Sec School, even if they have to use the grease out of Mike Slive's own vehicle. Sec Academics, a JOKE.
