Dick Vitale (Allegedly) States His Opinion On The Memphis Situation
Lovable scamp Dickie Vitale couldn’t hold back and keep silent any longer on the Memphis/Derrick Rose controversy. Vitale believes the NCAA should assume some responsibility for allowing Rose to play. Via Game On!:
What is the purpose of an NCAA Clearinghouse if they clear athletes to be eligible and then all of a sudden after the season they determine they are ineligible?
Now if they get later information, I can understand that. But then they have to take some responsibility for allowing them to play. Count those games. Now if you want to take away the cash and penalize the school, so be it.
The compliance office did everything they were asked to do and that is why they should win an appeal which usually doesn’t happen. But if the NCAA is really, really on this, they should win an appeal.
I’m sorry, but this is a crock of bullshit. There is no way these are Dick Vitale’s thoughts. Allow me to show you how it would have came out if Vitale truly made this statement.
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY WACKY, BABY!! What is the purpose of an NCAA Clearinghouse if they GIVE 110 PERCENT AND clear athletes to be eligible and then all of a sudden after the season they determine they are ineligible, BABY?? I’M TELLIN’ YA, THIS SITUATION IS AN ABSOLUTE KNEE-KNOCKER!
IT IS FLAT-OUT SCARY, BABY! Now if they get later information, I can understand that, BABY! But then they have to take some dippity-doo responsibility-ROO for allowing those DIAPER DANDIES to play, BABY!! Count those games, BABY!! Now if you want to take away the cash and penalize the school, so be it, BABY! UNLESS IT’S COACH K AND THE DUKEY-DOO UNIVERSITY-ROO, BABY!!
The compliance office ARE A BUNCH OF P.T.P.’s and did everything they were asked to DIPSY-DOO-A-ROO and that is why they should win an appeal, BABY, which usually doesn’t happen, UNLESSS YOU’RE A SURF AND TURFER. But if the NCAA is GOING TIME SQUARE ON THIS AND IS REALLY, REALLY on this, BABY, they should win an appeal, BABY!! IT WILL BE A SLAM, BAM, JAM, BABY!!
There. That sounds much better. See, I would believe that was Vitale. Baby.
