And if that family friend happens to be an OSU booster or coach? He isn't being put on the shelf for getting a loan. Students, athletes can get loans. If that's the real and end of story, then OSU being overly cautious for what reason?Let's see if I have this correct. The athletes are too busy to work and they can't be paid for being who they are. So, a guy takes a loan from a family friend for living expenses, pays it back and then is in trouble. Right.
My Ma's kid was perfect, so there are exceptions. But in Young's case? I agree with you.To be fair, we only know the situation as described by Young. Of course, he's going to narrate the situation in the best light for him. Has anyone heard their teenage son or daughter describe anything this way? And, when they did, did we as their parent, just accept what they said as fact and say "Well, OK"?
I tend to think that there is more here than we currently know.
Bevo - Sadly, it isn't this simple. Loans cannot be given to athletes if the loaner happens to be a "booster". This term has quite a range and the NCAA's definition of a "booster" is below:Let's see if I have this correct. The athletes are too busy to work and they can't be paid for being who they are. So, a guy takes a loan from a family friend for living expenses, pays it back and then is in trouble. Right.
Recall when Gloria James took out a loan and bought Lebron a hummer? That ended up being fine because 'bron was going to be worth a gazzilion dollars 4 months later and the loan was paid off. Same thing here - back off!!!!
So a "booster" could be anyone who ever made a donation to a college or even bought an ad in the university's athlete program. Obviously, this includes a large number of people.The NCAA broadly defines a "booster" as an individual, agency, entity or organization who is known by an institution to: Have participated in or been a member of an agency that promotes the institution's intercollegiate athletics program.
We'll just have to wait and see.I hate it when you guys are correct!
Yes sir, Bevo! It's a very good story. Here's more info on Chuck Csuri's professional work:Really can't top a story like this.
Wow Bevo! Looks like a pretty big snowfall for this time of the year. Of course, you are correct about the silver-lining (school delays and possible cancellations).With our outside Chrismas lights up (Griswald style of "here and there") and a good five inches of snow in Eastern Wyandot County, it's been a very, early and pleasant winter night here. The cherry on top is that the working half of this family is already on a two-hour school delay. My call from the way it looks here is that a lot of those "two hour" will turn into "closed".
Just think only seven more months of this!
I was just saying that to my wife this morning. Growing up we listened to the radio in the kitchen every morning. Neither of my parents watched TV news the way folks do now. And it was a major event when that morning DJ had school closures to announce.Many of you obviously know from careers and having children that teh schools call now when they are delayed or closed. When I was a kid...We always had to scramble to find a radio station. I do not recall teh tv stations running these.
Glad to hear you say that, Bevo. They scare me too. I know it's hard to admit, but -- just maybe -- we aren't good enough athletes anymore to just bounce back from those falls. Only Jimmy Carter can do that, God love him.I don't mind hot summer with plenty of blue skies - preferably starting in mid May and going into early Sept., followed by fall. I need the Ohio fall until late Nov. I need a snowy Dec and three weeks of Jan. I need it to start getting nice in early March. I need an actual spring that begins in late March.
I almost went down last night on a sheet of ice on a sidewalk. I use to make "those moves" just to be silly - now they are terrifying!
