Re: NCAA rules - explanations
Dear All Readers,
The information Gouci has stated regarding the rule change applying to student athletes participating in professional competition 6 months to 1 year after their scheduled high school graduation is NOT
accurate. The proposed rule change was NOT
accepted as it did NOT
have the required 2/3rds vote.
Next week, April 12-13th the Legislative Council will review its action because their was 61 override votes. However, as it stands now the bylaws effective Aug 2010 will remain as 1 year post graduation to play before the athlete must enroll in order to not lose eligibility
Here are the proposed changes, and the history of it is at the bottom.
Please be careful what you post on your forums as it could very well effect the lives of many potential student athletes.
