  • Ineligible players

    Just saw on Twitter from the conference that us and West Fl. Have both played ineligible players this season. Are we in jeopardy of consequences coming later? Anyone have any knowledge on this?

    I heard about that too. My feeling is that there should be forfeits but I dont really know what the situations are.

        In looking at the statements, the UWF player had been suspended for the previous year and his reinstatement required certain reports be submitted. UWF didn't submit the final report.

        The VSU player was a transfer, and the previous institution omitted information from the documents it submitted to the NCAA. It's the NCAA; so, fairness and common sense are not necessarily part of the equation, but if the screw up is truly on the part of the other institution, VSU shouldn't have to forfeit games, but I repeat, it's the NCAA.

          Last year, Ferris State played an ineligible player. Allegedly, he was told by Grand Valley that he wouldn't be eligible so he went to Ferris State instead - and played. It was reported. They did not forfeit any games but they did receive a nullification penalty and were moved from the #1 seed to the #2 seed. That is how I remember it but I cannot guarantee those details are absolutely correct.

            The GSC football site has a report explaining the situation and sanctions. As of now it looks like a fine and reinstruction and review of the applicable procedures for both institutions assuming no further violations are found. Both institutions self reported when the potential violation was discovered and the violation was found to be a secondary type and not requiring nullification sanctions.

              These D1 schools have been known to botch a transfer by not completing some paperwork........maybe deliberately??

              The article did say that the NCAA will be voting on some of these transfer regulations in January.

              West Fl has a different issue.

                I do believe the VSU problem comes from the difference in redshirt rules. In D1 they can now play in 4 games without losing a year of eligibility. It says the player was in the transfer portal so he would be eligible if he went to a different D1 school. One day the NCAA will have all the same rules in place for each division and we won’t see this particular situation.
                Does anyone know who it is? My guess is a grad transfer but I guess it could be a 5th year SR

                  I’ve been told that there will be no forfeitures of games for either school per my research. Basically what you see in the statements is the final word.

                    This is good. I would hate to see a football team punished for botched paperwork.

                      You were told and you did research? Or you read the same thing everyone else did? The statement is pretty clear that the violations are secondary infractions and it’s not really that big of a deal. The group of idiots also known as the NCAA have their hands full with trying to figure out how to pay D-1 players and still screw them over, so I don’t think this is anything to worry about.

                        Goff is a good guy. He's being thorough in making sure things are done right.

                          Definitely. Coach is doing some great things with the program.
                          The whole staff takes NCAA regulations seriously - from the AD on down. We are very fortunate to have the people we do.

                            Remember several years ago we missed the playoffs because a players name was accidentally left off some list. Something to do with his name was the only one on the last sheet. The guy wasn’t even in this one game that this happened. Now that was very harsh penalty in my book.

                              Regarding the certification question, was that VSU certifying that the player eligible, or was it the NCAA certifying that the player was eligible for transfer?
