Players suspended for selling shoes at Nike U. Gotta love the irony... :lol:
Wow. I remember recruiting Artis.
Must have been tryin' to sell Springblades
If it's 15 games, they'll miss the trip to CU on January 5th.
Early speculation on twitter is 5-9 games. They self-reported, so that will help.
"Gentlemen, what you see before you is video evidence, ATM withdrawals showing you and the alleged buyers, affidavits from eyewitnesses to the transactions, and some other gentlemen wearing shoes they should not have access to. Is there anything you would like to self-report?"
Had they been selling Adidas it would have been the entire season.
:lol: unless you're CU.
i hate this rule
They'll be in there by conference play with room to spare for a few OOC games to get gelled.
Agreed. They broke the rules. It shouldn't matter if it's "self-reported." These college athletes should have used better judgement. They were wrong and now they should have to pay the penalty. If the NCAA lets them off easy because Oregon "self-reported" it, then the NCAA can go **** themselves.
Its Oregon...they will get off lightly
Wait. These aren't walk-ons, are they?
OK, so nothing to see here. Move along.
they should have called ATM's lawyers. NCAA would have sent additional shoes and a few jerseys for the players to sell along with an apology letter for upsetting the good rule following folks at Oregon.
There was a 3rd kid (Moore?) that was involved who transfered. His new school gave him nine games, so I'd guess that is the number that Oregon will use too. Although, they will probably get off a little earlier for "good behaivor".
Won't help them against Georgetown though.
EDIT: And somehow I missed Shldr2Shldr's post, but I did get the number...
good call, Goose
