Making the grade

Written December 24th, 2009 by MaliBuckeye

‘Tis the season… for grades to come out and student athletes to be declared ineligible for their holiday games.

You knew about the Buckeyes… the number 3 and 4 WRs will not be in Pasadena.

Now it’s the Ducks’ turn- their speediest WR will also be watching from home.

The impact will be similar, in my opinion; both the Ducks and Bucks run first, run second, and pass when necessary.

I’m interested in what it is about receivers and grades- perhaps they’re so fast the knowledge just can’t stick to them? You’d think if anyone could catch theĀ  concepts it would be them…

Hopefully this ends the streak of grade related issues for these teams- it’s not fun to post about either team not being at full strength.

In other “Your PAC-10 Compliance Office And You” news, seems that Joe McKnight is rollin’-

USC is still awaiting clearance to see if McKnight, the team’s leading rusher, can play in Saturday’s game against Boston College following an investigation into whether he improperly used an SUV registered to a local businessman.

“Compliance hasn’t made a final ruling, but this is a most favorable sign,” Carroll said Thursday.

The NCAA has already responded:

    Looking at the link you posted, Mali, sure looks like he’s their #4 WR, not their #1.

    Not sure how a guy who, it looks like, barely played gets called their #1 receiver.

    You know, you’re right. I’ll chalk that one up to eggnog, and leave it at that.

    Fixed it, though- he’s their burner, and we (unfortunately) know what happens when you lose your deep threat (see Gators, Florida).
