    The Armstrong article deserved more pub on this site, and he absolutely should sue the NCAA since it is their transfer rules that are really screwing him over.

    What’s really screwing him over is his shady actions while at the university! How about go to class and play football. If he did what he is supposed to he would not have to worry about transferring and Miami fans would not have to worry about being referred to as Thug “U”. Prostitutes, narcotics and abortions. Really??? Sue the NCAA? How about be a grown up and not act like a hood rat!

    Ohio–
    I despise “the U” but while this kid was implicated, nothing was proven. Plus that is not why he was dismissed–it was for social media issues that Miami thought might make him eligible. He is currently suing Miami over that weak nonreason. However, because of the NCAAs ridiculous transfer rules, he cannot go to another FBS program without sitting out a year. He is a senior, so he either gets one less year of high visibility heading into the draft, costing him a lot of money, or he enters the NFL a year later after playing somewhere else next year. The second option might restore his draft positioning but at the cost of a year of earnings. I couldn’t really care less about him personally as a football player per se, nor about wherever he may wind up. However, it is pretty clear, that as he is still eligible to play, there is a valid argument that the NCAA is damaging his earning potential by making it much harder on students to transfer than it does on coaches to change schools.

    Ineligible, not eligible. Sorry for the typo.

    Oh, and just to be clear, I don’t think Armstrong has any case against Miami. Scholarships are a privilege and not a right. My point is that the NCAA’s transfer rules are unfair and could be construed as restraint of trade.

    Now back to football. When are we going to send a team to the olympics? A football team that is.
