What kills me is both these kids are being punsihed for playing a game - literally, that's all.

They didn't commit a felony, they didn't steal $11K worth of computers, they didn't assualt a woman, they didn't accept cash from a booster, they didn't cheat on an exam, they didn't posses illegal drugs, they didn't shave points in a game or make a bet on college sports.

What did they do? They played in a rec league game with refs and adult supervision? When is that a crime?

Its sad when the NCAA controls the actions of student athletes, but they can't control their own greed. When amauture sports rules are written by 100 lawyers instead of common sense, that's when I have a problem. Totally disgusting, period!

This IS the same suspension that Billy Edelin at Syracuse got for the same offense last year - before his other problems overtook him.
