always figured there was more to the story. shame on the NCAA.
There were similar issues raised with the Tez Walker waiver decision - the NCAA supposedly consulted a board of mental health experts, but that board had absolutely no interaction with Walker.I see all points in this issue but especially this one. He should appeal.
Ethically a diagnosis cannot be made without examination of the patient. In addition, his father's health could certainly impact his mental health and well-being.I like Bilas and think he's among the best media types connected to the sport, but he is and has always been in the tank for complete free agency and unlimited money for players. I totally disagree with him.
JBam's father's health is not relevant under the criteria the NCAA published many months ago:
View attachment 13670As for JBam's own health issues, you have to understand that if "getting a doc's note" was all that was required, the exception would swallow the rule and the entire process would be a joke.
And I don't think the NCAA ever said its medical panel would interview the kids. I think they do a review of the documentation and whatever testing may have been done to support the "diagnosis."
This sucks for VCU and JBam but is the right direction for college basketball
is this true?We're taking off today as a couple of people haven't replied to texts about doing their property, so yall let me know if there's a #FREEJOE picket line outside the BDC, and one or both of us will meet out there, might be good to get some news crews out there and send a message. I'd need to pick up some cardboard to make some signs, recycling just came yesterday.
