NCAA denies Dorial Green-Beckham’s appeal

Dorial Green-Beckham

The fate of wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has been decided by the NCAA.

Green-Beckham transferred to Oklahoma in July after Missouri dismissed the talented receiver due to multiple off-the-field incidents. Oklahoma filed an appeal on Green-Beckham’s behalf last week. The NCAA officially denied the appeal Friday.

Oklahoma released a statement after the NCAA announced its decision:

“The University of Oklahoma has learned that the waiver request it entered on behalf of Dorial Green-Beckham has been denied by the NCAA. The University accepts that decision and will continue to provide the appropriate assistance to Dorial, just as it does with other students, in helping him grow personally from the many opportunities available to him at OU.”

Of course the University “accepts that decision.” It shouldn’t even be surprised by the outcome due to recent incidents with other members of its football team.

The tipping point for Green-Beckham at Missouri was an incident where he allegedly pushed a woman down a flight of stairs.

It’s the type of incident the University of Oklahoma publicly stated “takes very seriously its obligation in cases like this…”

The school suspended its leading tackler, Frank Shannon, for the season after sexual assault allegations.  The school did the same to running back Joe Mixon after he allegedly punched a woman in the face and caused four broken bones.

If the Sooners found a loophole – in this case, the run off rule — to allow Green-Beckham to play this season, the school’s actions would have been seen as highly hypocritical. Instead, all three players won’t be allowed to play during the upcoming campaign.

Make no mistake about it — the Sooners were hopeful Green-Beckham could play this season. He’s mega-talent at wide receiver. Instead, the team will have to rely heavily on Sterling Shepard, Durron Neal and Derrick Woods.

    Can someone please call the Reverend Al Sharpton, so much injustice….

    He, like most SEC players, has zero interest in a degree, so I’d be shocked if he didn’t just declare for the draft after sitting out this season….NOT THAT THERE’S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT.

    Young man is no thug and has a good family. His adoptive father is a HS football coach. I hope he is getting help and not just thinking moving away from Columbia resolves the issues.

    that’s hilarious…especially coming from a Notre Dame fan. how many kids have been busted for academic fraud at ND in the last year or so? they want those degrees so badly that they’re willing to cheat to get them, huh?

    you don’t have any room to stereotype the SEC. your school is infested with frauds.

    This is why we can now make our own rules

    So his adoptive father thought that a coach who threw his headset was no longer worthy of consideration (Brian Kelly) but a coach with a DUI conviction (Gary Pinkel) was OK? Surprise it turned out like this.

    Auburn tigers:

    First off, nothing has been proven as of yet with 4 of the players. The major difference in the sec & ND is, at ND student athletes understand how important that ND degree is and sometimes they may take extreme measures to ensure getting that degree. Now, those 4 may turn out to be guilty & if they are, I’m all for them being expelled for the year. In the sec, those degrees in “Under Water Fire Prevention” do not mean nearly as much. I read an article last year that stated that the University of Alabama was the tenth easiest school to get a degree from. WOW, ITT Tech ranked higher!!! Say what you will, or should I say, type what you will, but you & I both know you would cherish a degree from ND!

    Now the football practices and travel will not get in the way of his studies and progression towards his degree. Isn’t that why he went to college?

    I am sure Bob Stoops will be making sure he goes to class now as his university seems to be very interested in assisting this young man who was so brutally “run off” from Missouri.

    Pretty soon OU is going to get tired of going above and beyond to kiss the NCAA’s a** and of courses that’s when the sanctions will come down on them… This is just getting ridiculous

  13. 700levelvet says: Aug 23, 2014 7:12 AM

    Let’s face facts.. ALL college coaches would recruit the scum of the earth to keep the coin flowing, and administrators are just as guilty, don’t give me this I hope the student athlete grows and learns… It’s all BS… The PR Dept. can send out all the emails or faxes they want, you’d have to be an idiot to think otherwise .. College football is about money and only money..

    I am a lifelong OU fan and I am glad they denied his appeal. They also suspended Frank Shannon and Joe Mixon for the year. I do not want to be forced to cheer on athletes that are thugs and criminals. As far as I am concerned all 3 three should be booted out of the university. All three cases involved violence against woman(as well as other issues) and should not be tolerated. I have lost just a bit of respect for Bob Stoops over the last few months.

    Bob Stoops wants to know if OJ still has any collegiate eligibility left.

    My my, How easy it is for you and IrishD to speak ill of ANY university and use the word “FRAUD” in the same context. After all the great ND is the same university that not only went along with a LIE about Te’o dead girlfriend on a national stage just to garner attention for their Heisman hopeful candidate but also held a press conference in his defense after the fact. They (the leadership, President, etc.) went along with that HUGE lie all the way up to the BCS national championship game.

    Really now, fraud is a word that you shouldn’t use so liberally…
