i hate to see it happen to a decent kid but the team rules are to be followed by all. i'm glad CNS dropped the hammer.

espn said it's due to improper dealings with an agent. wish he'd play since I've got bama on every pick'em sheet I'm in, but the coaches/university did the right thing.

sad thing is if it was an agent, his college career is over whether AS wanted it to or not.
i wish ncaa would prosecute the agents, it would stop some of the contact.

prosecute them, take their agent license away and take away a portion of their income from being an agent (not just from the one guy that got in trouble, but all their clients). that would be a good 1st step to get rid of them doing this.

they need to start penalizing the players after they sign contracts. the agents and players walk away free with classmates and the school to deal with the trouble they've caused. Bama went through this with antonio langham.
