2018 Cali Winner: Passing Yards (Big Deal Again)
- Aug 27, 2011
I can understand not going down the road with waivers. That would seem to open up questions about why in some cases and not in others.With the crazy schedules of college athletes, you'd think the NCAA would realize the time demands, and understand that sometimes, stuff happens. Especially when that student has remained academically eligible for 6+ semesters. To rarely give a waiver, regardless, seems off.
This stinks. Best of luck to Shy.
But this whole thing certainly doesn't lend itself to the idea of athletes taking serious majors. Credit to Bam and Shy for how they have handled the situation. Getting a better understanding of the true time commitment of athletes has been eye-opening. I wasn't naive - I knew it was a huge commitment but it's been interesting to learn even more about it.
