He's signed with us, he signed his LOI and had to send it to his parents who had sign it then fax it to our staff.. I don't know where he's from but probably sending from Hargrave to wherever his parents are has been delaying it.

He and his parents were scheduled for an official visit...for some reason, his parents drove up and made it to Morgantown, but he was flying up. Said he spent the better part of 2 days waiting in the airport, but his flight kept getting cancelled due to the snow, and he finally gave up and went home. His parents and our staff, thinking he'd eventually make it, started the visit with the tours and stuff. NCAA prohibits "entertaining" parents without the recruit present, and because he never made it, it was in violation.

Now, the NCAA says he cannot sign with WVU, ever, at this point.

Stew seems to think it will be cleared up due to extenuating circumstances.

OK, another stupid rule by the NCAA. So bring the kid in do what needs to be done, sign the dotted line and all is well. THis is where he wants to be and we have no control over the weather.

That's the problem...right now the NCAA is saying that he can't sign with WVU, PERIOD.

Not now, not ever.

This is the same damn BS as the Deniz situation in basketball. The NCAA and their dumba$$ rules. I understand there is need for them, but not a dumba$$ rule like that.

I don't like the situation with giving the parents the Grand Tour. Stew should have known. One little incident like this brings even closer scrutiny and could hurt the rest of our signings by making others nervous.

Nah...there were talks that we may not have even let him sign if he couldn't make it in for summer classes.

Let's just hope that the NCAA is partly human and excuses this.

This would only be excused at USC or one of the other "powers".I'm tired of the political crap that goes on in NCAA.

The NCAA will eventually be thier own downfall because of crap like this.

However ... didn't our staff know enough not to start the tours until the kid arrived???

Is it that hard to check on the status of flights???

There's supposed to be some kind of "act of God" clause or something which is why Stew is confident that it'll all get straightened out but I think with the fact that his parents could make it so why couldn't Banks is the NCAA's argument but I'm sure there's flight logs and ticket information that will straighten this out hopefully.

According to Rivals the problem has been resolved and he should sign very soon.

Glad to hear that it's straightened out. The NCAA made a good decision for once.

Riddle me this Batman. So, it's a major violation to miss the tour and let your parents go on the tour. But if he had made it and we provided him with escorts like Tennessee it would have been a secondary violation.

Well we can fix that. No parents on the tour and we provide them with hookers and we just get a secondary violation. Problem solved.

Hmmm, what if you provide the parents with hookers, uh, I mean escorts. Would that work?

It would work for me, but I think my wife might have a problem with it.
