Default Power 5 Schools Seek Eligibility Relief

Sixty representatives of the Power Five Schools have come together in a joint effort to seek additional eligibility for last year’s college seniors in winter sports as well as spring/summer sports.

While I understand and appreciate the reasons behind this initiative, I’m torn between hoping it will be approved and a lingering thought that it might be a bad idea.

How do you feel about this proposal? Do you think there is any chance it will be approved?

Quote:
"If the NCAA merely focuses on eligibility relief and does not aid those who are unsafe and unable to pay for food and shelter, then we have already failed our peers as collegiate athlete leaders," read the statement, signed by 60 student-athlete leaders from the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC.

The group also recommends that the Division I Council grant eligibility relief to all athletes participating in spring sports, as well as those in winter sports who qualified for the postseason but could not compete.

Ncaa has no balls. And when they do accidentally try to flex their muscles, they dunk on the worst cases

I guess all the underclassmen will just lost a year of eligibility? Maybe ncaa will allow them to use it as a redshirt year even if they played?

Yep. March Madness is pointless and means nothing. Who cares if these athletes trained their butts off in the off season just to miss the opportunity to achieve the one goal they trained for.

Yep. There are too many obstacles to overcome, and for what? Two to three weeks of post season play?

This is nothing more than grandstanding by Power 5 officials in a feeble attempt to show how concerned they are about student athletes. It’s the revenue from post season tournaments and from the big dance they really care about.

Besides, a number of the players have already moved on. I’ll be shocked if this passes.

The winter sports male and females for the most part aren't going to want to play another year. It means two more semesters for them of school. It is time to go play professionally or move forward in life.
If they did pass it and players wanted to stay it would take away a bunch of playing time for the 4 classes of players below them. The players taking the extra year aren't going to be bench warmers. Also can imagine how much that opens it up for grad transfers.

The spring athletes would benefit from the extra year but again it is a bunch of school and workouts to play a few more games. Many athletes by the time 4 years have gone by they are ready to hang it up.

The trickle down effect just seems to far outweigh the positives IMO. We're talking about impacting incoming freshman, who obviously chose X school b/c they knew who was leaving, the minutes they'd be playing, etc. Not to mention potential scholarship limitations too.

And as many stated, the season was 90% completed as well. This year was a total albatross; it sucks there was no post-season, but it is what it is.

It was passed. Think it was the right decision. Not sure where hoops falls in this though.

Agree with this. As much as it would be nice to see Doo come back as he was denied the NCAA his senior year, hard to make the case he deserves a year of eligibility even for what is the most important part of the season, as it is only a couple of weeks. You could also argue that these players have no guarantee they make it back to the tournament if they get an extra year, so what did they really gain.

Not even to mention how fair is it to grant eligibility to all 353 DI teams for 68 teams that would have played in the tourney. Add the 312 DII and 424 DIII teams and you are talking 196 teams in the NCAA divisions making the tournaments and 893 teams that don't. Can't grant eligibility across the board based on 18% of the teams

As much as it sucks, they made the right decision.

That was the right decision, IMO. So was approving another year for spring/summer athletes.

Redshirts would have been the rule if it passed. And wonder if it would have limited grad transfers due to a one time rule.
