Reports: King and Harmon Ineligible

UGASports has some of the 411. I'll get details later, but this doesn't come as a surprise. Check the excerpt from that (December 20, 2010) article to see why.

Just so you're aware of the gravity of this situation, Caleb and the mystery man have also placed themselves in a tenuous position for next year's season. In order to participate in the bowl, a player has to have received a minimum of 6 hours of credit in the semester. Here are the full requirements, per Georgiadogs:
  • Must have earned at least 24 credit hours during previous year with at least 18 earned during the regular academic year
  • Must have earned at least 18 earned during the previous regular academic year.
  • Must have earned six hours during the previous spring semester to be eligible for competition during the fall semester.
  • Must have earned six hours during the fall semester to be eligible for competition during the spring semester.
  • Must have declared major; cumulative GPA requirement of 1.9 each semester.
  • 40% of degree must be completed.

 These players didn't complete those six hours, which probably means they passed one class and will have three hours credit. This means they'll need at least 15 next semester and then 6 during May/Summer to make 24, or they will be ineligible next year.
They're appealing the rulings, but that just adds to my disdain for this situation. I'll have more pissed off ranting about this tomorrow when more details are available and I have more time on my hands.
