NTR -----YET
07-coffee3 New York Times has an article today about a Univ. of Calif. football player that opted out of the season due to the virus situation. The university took away his
scholarship and also billed him for the $24,000 that they had already invested in his education. I would provide link but do not know how to do it.

California literally treats their college football players like slaves but they are a liberal state.

why not, the school and player agreed to services renders for compensation in return by way of scholarship, room, board, and other benefits. If the player decided they did not want to perform the services then they are not eligible for the compensation.

Got to stop treating athletes as if their **** doesn't stink and require they live up to the same standards as everyone else.

In most arenas this is pretty much common sense.
In college athletics, however...

RE: NTR -----YET
It's a bit of a different case.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/20/sport...rship.html

He was a walk-on for 3 years and paid his own way. He was given a scholarship last year. This year he decided to he wasn't go to play but expected them to pay for his scholarship. His scholarship wasn't renewed which was legal. They billed him for summer term but that was appealed and he got the 24K back.

The key difference is that he remained at Cal and wanted them to pay his scholarship while he wasn't playing. None of our players have remained in school and wanted the school to pay their tuition.

So NTR...NYet

When is requiring someone to live up to their side of an agreement considered slavery?

When the NCAA affords a student athlete the option to opt out the agreement is then null & void.

NCAA giving the athlete an out has nothing to do with the fact that he made an agreement with the school. The agreement for compensation is just a variable on which the player must take into account when making that decision to opt-out. If he remains in school then he still gets the benefits of the deal.

Sounds like he opted out before the school’s deadline for offering another year. Bad move. Definitely deserved the Summer money, based on what I read.

Soooo why is Deandre waiting still to be cleared to play for Memphis? Evansville didn't have a scholarship for him so why is he being held hostage??

Seems like a slave system to me. 07-coffee3

Explain exactly what you think this "agreement" entails .......
