Saw this posted on MGo.Licio.us so may be redundant and removed by Mods but thought this would be a good discussion point. Also may be OT because this is not specifically a question regarding a UM player - but the situation with a UM player raised a bigger question for discussion.
Jackson Lamb - Committed to play Baseball at UM may choose to go pro:
Maybe I missed the memo, but how is it that Baseball and Hockey players can be drafted and choose whether or not to go pro or not without compromising their NCAA eligibility. Whereas Football and Basketball players must DECLARE for the draft - thus making them ineligible to continue their collegiate careers?
I feel it's another BS double-standard of the NCAA.
