    9 games because some paperwork was filed late? The NCAA sucks. Way to stick it to the kid.

    Maybe there’s a great reason for this penalty but it seems heavy handed and of low importance with all of the other garbage going on in college basketball. I think the NCAA would want any good player like that back to improve their brand and would take a softer stance on it. Isn’t there a new rule that will take effect next year that would render this infraction irrelevant, anyway? (Maybe he wasn’t invited to the draft combine, but he should have been)

    It’s not like he’s cruising around in a super sweet used Jetta that was given to him by a booster, or something...

    How Duke hasn't been hit with recruiting infractions is beyond me. Both Marvin Bagley III and Zion were mixing up in the pay to play scandal. The NCAA has its hearts set on penalizing players and not programs.

    This penalty seems disproportionate to the infraction.

    How many kids signed with agents this year, 200. 300.

    How many of these kids have violated the simple rule of filing the paperwork with the NCAA before you sign with an agent? Personally does not sound too hard to me.

    This is the first case that I have heard of this specific violation.

    The penalty may be a little harsh, but it really is a simple rule to follow. There was no big hurry to sign with the agent, that Childs could have taken the time to verify the NCAA had the paperwork on file.

    Fill out the NCAA paperwork, File the paperwork with the NCAA, make sure the NCAA has the appropriate paperwork on file, sign with the agent. Easy.

    I am sure that Childs did not intend to violate any NCAA rules, but he did, so he gets to sit. No idea if BYU or Childs dropped the ball, but after completing 3 years of college, you are an adult and got to be responsible for yourself and your actions.

    ZagRecruitWatch, remind me again how many Duke players did not file their paperwork with the NCAA before signing with an agent?

    Dukes violation is much more egregious then miss filing paperwork. My point is the NCAA have there priorities all in the wrong places and should be investigating schools like Duke and Arizona for more serious recruiting violations.

    How do we know that the paperwork is easy? How do we know that miscommunication didn't happen in the Athletic Department and both thought the other was doing it?

    And without regard to whether it was easy or not, whether the rule is clear or not (they are often not as clear and easy as you may think), we in this nation try to make the punishment proportionate to the crime.

    Following the speed limit is easy, people who drive must be responsible for their actions, but we don't put people in jail for 10 days if they're clocked 10 miles above the limit, easy as it is to follow.

    I am not excusing Childs, I am attempting to make sense out of the NCAA's priorities, where coaches making 8 figures so often make "mistakes" and seldom get punished at this level, missing 9 games, or 9 game worth of a paycheck.

    Did Child's deserve to have ramifications? Sure. Does he deserve 9 game suspention, 1/3 of his year, that sounds absurd to me, and typical NCAA, the athletes who make a fortune for the school and NCAA bear the brunt of any impropriety.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Would never have happened had he signed with an agent who has a bachelors degree.

    Umm, wait a minute...

    Late paperwork and impermissible expenses paid for by the agent. I would guess part of that was due to Childs having no intent to come back when he declared. This sucks for the conference as well. BYU has a really good non conference schedule and he will miss most of the games. BYU will be without their best player and only inside presence. It will be almost impossible for BYU to earn an at large bid now.

    So much bull####. He gets this for violating " new NCAA agent/draft rules" because he didn't follow "procedural" rules when filing for draft eligibility. The NCAA deserves all the bad press they earn.
