Maybe they will listen if a lot of people write them. It is better to try than not. Maybe we could get this one exception from them on this situation.
I enjoy wasting my time as much as the next guy, but no thanks.
Never happen. They will not allow relief from the exact bullshit that they created.
And they will send a form letter back stating that USC did not have to offer kids EE spots.
Realistically, if all these kids were to be Fall enrollees, there would be so much less angst....
The NCAA still hasn't gotten through all the Lamar and Denise (Bush) Griffin letters.
It's a nice thought, but as soon as you come to the realization of this.....you'll not waste your time...
I'd prefer to break my foot off in Emert's ass but we all know that won't happen. Personally, I think Haden needs to say something to this effect. "Due to the NCAA punishing players who are a decade removed from the Bush incident, we have to tell this young man he can't enroll early!" Fucking pricks
It would be interesting to see how they respond to this scenario, where a kid might have to delay his enrollment at USC, simply because an outgoing player did not graduate in time. The outgoing player has no eligibility left, so won't be on the team next season, while a kid who worked hard to graduate high school early so he could enroll at his favorite university has to delay his academic pursuits. There is absolutely no athletic advantage gained by keeping a high-quality STUDENT-athlete from being enrolled (due to the 75 cap rule), because a player unable to suit up again for the Trojans needs more time to finish his degree.
Add-on: basically there is no reason they shouldn't allow USC to convert the outgoing player's scholarship from an athletic scholarship to an academic scholarship, therefore allowing Fitts to enroll. If they're worried the outgoing player will give USC one more body at Spring practices, then make Fitts' early enrollment come with a stipulation that the outgoing player can't participate in team activities (as if he's going to anyway?).

I prefer doing it "the right way"...okay, on the count of 3...bend over.
I'm gonna write the NCAA a letter and ask if USC can have all the sanctions void. I'm gonna have my neighbor sign it too. It's gonna be great.
