ODU case shows the NCAA is just as confusing and irrational as ever

Friday, June 14, 2013

The NCAA routinely opts to not follow its own precedents. Or use common sense and decency. And the latest proof came this week when the governing body denied Old Dominion guard Donte Hill's petition for a final year of eligibility. Why was Hill's petition denied? Because, as Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Eisenberg pointed out, Hill played eight minutes in a preseason scrimmage in 2010 before transferring from Clemson to ODU. That's it. Eight minutes. Behind closed doors. It wasn't even a real game. (CBS Sports)
