Can you explain this eligibility thing.
Why would one player's eligibility be expired before the others? COnfused on how this works.
Thanks for the explanation
because orihaki will be a senior next and lamb and drummond won't be...
" Per NCAA rules, any scholarship seniors on a team facing a one-year postseason ban can obtain a waiver to transfer to another school without sitting a year. According to the NCAA, the student-athlete can obtain the waiver as long as he or she would have been "academically eligible had he or she remained at his or her original institution."
How about go get em all and let Cal sort them out!
If the ncaa thinks he is leaning towards transferring to UK, you can bet they will overturn the punishment, reduxe it such that he would have to sit out a year if he transfers, or they will find a way to wait until he is at UK and then rule him ineligible.
According to Jeff Goodman, UK, UNC, Duke, NC State, Florida, Temple, Xavier, UCLA, Missouri, George Mason, Virginia Tech, Virginia and Charlotte have all reached out to Oriakhi.
Goodman also reporting that he's hearing no SEC schools would be allowed to take AO because of league rule allowing no one year transfers to the SEC..
Anyone know anything about this rule?
So much for our chances. Once Charlotte gets involved it's a done deal. It was fun to think about while it lasted.
would seem odd after the Ole Miss / Masoli experience.
That was Pac 10 to SEC. This will be Big East to SEC. Apparently its a Big East rule if thats correct. Still seems odd.
I don't understand...the Big East has a rule that says a one year transfer can't go to the SEC? That's how I'm reading that, but I can't make sense of it.
If what the guy said is true. I have a hard time believing it but thats what he was referring to I believe. Or maybe its an SEC rule. Doesn't make sense either way.
Cauley, Wiltjer, and Oriakhi would be a great front line rotation.

The rule they're talking about is an SEC rule. The article that I read said that the rule was put in place in 2011 to stop the practice of transferring to a school for the purpose of attending graduate school without having to sit a year in some cases. The old rules allowed a player who had completed undergraduate studies to transfer to a school with a graduate program in their chosen field without having to sit out a year ... provided that their current school does not have the same options for a graduate program. I think this rule was put in place to clean up issues like the Ole Miss / Masoli case in 2010.
The article also stated that this rule only applied to football ... so I'm not even sure if it applies to Oriakhi.
It's a ploy. He knows if he mentions UK the ruling will be overturned.
Also read that he could obtain a special waiver to transfer to an SEC school but that he won't be able to transfer to another Big East school.
I don't think he'll have an issue if he wants to attend an SEC school. UK wouldn't even bother pursuing if they didn't already know.

I heard on Sportscenter last week that even if the appeal is accepted, Oriakhi's father said that he WILL still transfer and sit out a year. He must really not like UCONN anymore.
I feel this would be the perfect situation. Because we would be set if Noel comes this year, give AO a year to get use to UK and everything and be the big for the 2014 season. But having both can't hurt either. :)
It's the "no Marvin Stone left unturned" rule.
Jurich and his band of evil trolls probably wrote that gem into the Big East bylaws.
Update :: UConn's 2nd appeal on the post-season ban was denied yesterday (Thursday, April 5th). They will not be eligible for the NCAA tournament next year.
I just saw on an ESPN trailer at the bottom of the screen that U Conn's appeal was denied. I guess it is now final, and Oriakhi is free to go wherever he chooses. If Cal offers I can't believe he wouldn't accept. Can Oriarkhi play the 4 and the 5? Would this scare Noel away? I can't believe if he is confident in his ability that it would. Lots of pt available next year if everything goes as expected with the current players turning pro.
Any idea when he might decide where he's going?
According to CBS Sports he is visiting Missouri next weekend and Kentucky the weekend after that.
Question for you guys, as Jeff and Chris have stated that the staff has not felt good about Shabazz
for a while. Why did they not try to pursue Pollard? Or did they try to reamerge into his picture
and was it too late?
