I enjoy writing, and I have often thought about trying to put that story along with the preceding summer's events, when I played American Legion ball for Coach Favre and was the lifeguard at the local country club pool, into a book. I thought the title could be "The Summer of '72".

To me it really seems unfair that a person could honestly earn a scholarship for something other than athletics and be penalized for it. They solved one problem, but created another, IMO. I really don't know if those rules still apply today, but I think that if they still do, it would be good for a person to know that if he earns a scholarship in another area, don't even think about trying out for the team unless you think you're good enough to earn a scholarship for that sport as well. It's a good thing that "Rudy" was a true walk-on or otherwise he would have never had an opportunity to play in that last game.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

saint_lb,

I LOVE the story! Would love to publish it... it's just awesome. Also, it shows how the poop crap NCAA rules make life hell in college.

At LSU there were football players married with Kids living in a married dorm, not able to pay bills, rent etc. Wonder why they seek ways to make money? And LSU makes MILLIONS from football and can't even spiff these guys and gals.

Sucks.

Ur absolutly RIGHT... If they investigated every single college there is & looked hard enough, then they would without a doubt, find some sort of VIOLATION or VIOLATIONS... Bottom line... It is wut it is & thats that.

It went on in the PAST, it goes on NOW, it will TOMORROW & without a doubt it (WILL) continue to happen far more many times in the FUTURE!!!

(THIS IS THE WORLD WE LIVE, LoL)

Oh yea, i almost 4-got... Shame on me, haha...
