There was no way the NCAA was going to touch that one.

 

"Sure, you faced racism.  But you didn't face enough racism.  Waiver denied."

 

NCAA needs to figure something out with this transfer rule because handing out waivers seemingly at random isn't the best solution.

Just eliminate the rule.  Only five NCAA sports have the student sit a year: FBS Football, Ice Hockey, Baseball, and Men's and Women's Basketball.

Tate Martell's still waiting? I think if Patterson at Michigan can be allowed to play due to coaching changes Martell should too. Granted, Mississippi also faced bowl bans, but if the new coach doesn't want you why should you be forced to sit? With the rumor that he wanted to leave after Meyer was suspended last year, I have a feeling that Day was not going to play him unless he had too.

Patterson argued he was lied to about the severity of what Ole Miss was facing, so there is some difference. I think Tathan is using Meyer's suspension, which seems like a strange case to make.

University of Nebraska Football Player Maurice Washington Faces ‘Revenge Porn,' Child Porn Charges Over Video of Bay Area Teen

 

Quote

Washington, who dated the victim during his freshman year at The King’s Academy High School in Sunnyvale, is being charged under the “Revenge Porn” law because he’s accused of sending the video to inflict emotional damage on the victim. Because the victim was 15 when the video was recorded, he’s also being charged with distribution of child pornography, a felony.

 

“I tried so hard to forget it, and then to have someone just throw it back in my face like that and taunt me with it was just so evil,” Taylor, the victim, told NBC Bay Area on the condition we not use her last name. “Maybe that’s the wrong word to use, but I felt like it was evil, like why would you ever want somebody to feel that pain that I felt that day?”

 

Pretty scummy.  For Nebraska's part, the article says "the University was made aware of the allegations against Washington sometime last fall, but he was allowed to play through the entire season."  It has been updated to include Nebraska's statement on the matter stating they only knew California officials were interested in talking to Washington, but not about what and that there was no followup.
