    Quite a story, hope it all works out for them. Think there should be some exceptions in this case for sure.

    I know they've made exceptions before. Can't remember the names or team but I know a football player was the legal guardian of his little brother. One of the networks did a feature on it.

    Oh, sure. Let this one slide and you'll have the Bama boosters lining up players' parents to be shot execution style.

    Didn't the NCAA let tOSU help one of the players (Abdullah?) families when they were devestated by a Huricane?

    This is another of those times to allow someone to do what is right, though technically against the rules.

    Man, that is a heartbreaking number of funerals to have to endure in a month within your immediate family. Glad to hear that things are being done that need to to let what is left of the family get back to whatever sense of normalcy may be left.

    Auburn will probably beat Bama to it cuz hat's already permissable...so long as the student-athlete has no knowledge of it. :wink2:

    I can't imagine this kid still playing ball. All of that loss in such a minute amount of time really is a tragedy and now he has a little sister that has become his ward. As if he didn't have enough on his plate with school and basketball at a school where just playing there brings its own level of pressure.

    Good luck to him. He's going to need a lot of it.
