Kanter and Practice....FREE KANTER!

WT Administrator

Why the devil does the NCAA deny Kanter or any player still awaiting a decision on their eligibility the right to practice? Kanter is obviously not going to play in a game unless he receives the OK from the NCAA clearinghouse. So let's say Kanter receives an OK 2-3 weeks from now to play, in the meantime he has been penalized from not being able to practice. It is totally unfair to Kanter or any player in a similiar situation.

Honestly, the NCAA is one of the most dysfunctional, boneheaded, heartless, unfair organizations in existence! The NCAA is just terrific in punishing the innocent while letting the guilty go free.

The sooner the major BCS conferences tell the NCAA to take a hike and form a new organization the better!
