NCAA strikes again

I play in an LDS church league every year and our league is pretty much just like the article states.  We have 6-8 guys show up on our team.  Several airball from about 5 feet, one or two guys are over 50, there no refs, running 20 minute halves, offense calls fouls..... but we keep score and records and have a tournament champion so it technically is a league.

 

Absolute joke that he is losing a year of eligibility.

“You know what’s crazy?” Harries continued. “There’s one player on Colgate (Murphy Burnatowski) who plays for the Canadian (development) national team. So the NCAA says you can play in Europe against the U.S., Russia, Brazil, Australia, the Czech Republic and Sweden, but you can’t play in a church league. The whole thing is absurd.”

Harries played in a league that, according to Adams, includes teachers, salesmen, a tax attorney and a guy who works for the CDC. There are teams called, “Net Profit,” “Respect My Car” and “Make it Drizzle.” They play one or two games at Dunwoody Baptist Church, then go home and cover themselves with ice bags.


think of the competitive advantage this kid gets playing against a tax attorney in his 40s. 


as the article said, the ncaa is long on rules and short on logic. good grief.
