    James Wiseman declared inelligible

    Details are still coming in, but obviously this is huge news for Memphis. Reminds me a bit of what happened to Missouri when Porter got injured in what I think was their very first game. Though, obviously, this is not an injury situation and is potentially far more serious for the program.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Penny paid for family to move to Memphis

    https://wreg.com/2019/11/08/attorney...is-basketball/

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Local attorney Leslie Ballin said Memphis basketball player James Wiseman has been ruled ineligible to play for the University of Memphis.

    Ballin said the NCAA declared Wiseman ineligible to play at Memphis because head coach Penny Hardaway helped Wiseman move from Nashville to Memphis. Hardaway is considered a booster by the NCAA because he donated to the U of M in 2008.

    Ballin said he has filed a lawsuit against the NCAA and the U of M.

    Whoopsies. So much for wondering how they locked down that recruitment class.

    Wiseman had 28 and 11 in the Tigers first game. If you are a NBA scout considering a top three, or possibly the number one, pick on him. That’s all the tape you get.

    Yikes! It now appears that the problem is that Penny Hardaway helped out Wiseman’s family and encouraged them to move to the city of Memphis. Didn’t take him very long on the job to get in trouble with the NCAA, did it?

    According to ESPN, Coach Hardaway “assisted Wiseman and his family’s move to Memphis” and “the NCAA seems Hardaway a booster.” https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/...igible-memphis

    That's obviously big news. I know it was only one game but he looked as advertised... every bit of it.

    If he hadn't been a booster, it would have been OK as the head coach?

    Can we consolidate the three threads about this? This thread is vastly superior to the other two because kAzE actually provided a link.

    This Wiseman guy...is he eligible?

    Memphis got a TRO against the NCAA. Wiseman can play tonight, in theory.

    Go Memphis. Burn the NCAA to the ground.

    Thing is, this has been known for literally years. The Tenneseee HS sports governing body knew about it. The NCAA changed its mind, have told Memphis he was eligible earlier this week.

    Why now? What changed? Why couldn’t the NCAA have ruled before now?

    Never mind that the NCAA won’t touch widespread academic fraud or covering up for a serial pedophile, but a little cash? Bring on the wolves! The NCAA needs to go. Start over.

    Memphis is appealing and Wiseman will play tonight. This is going to get interesting.

    To your third question, this is a blistering pace for the NCAA. Imagine if they declared him ineligible after winning 38 games and appearing in the NCAA Finals instead?

    To your first two questions, according to this article the NCAA continued to investigate after deeming him eligible in May, and the investigation eventually uncovered documentation of the $11,500 in moving expenses Penny gave the family. I have no idea if that justifies the NCAA's action. I don't have enough information to say one way or the other, though my inclination always is to believe the NCAA got it wrong.

    Well, he wasn't Memphis' coach at the time he made the payment in 2017, and he wasn't affiliated with the school yet. So maybe that's why the booster classification matters in this situation?

    Ineligible also is spelled correctly in this thread title!

    Before the NCAA rules Wiseman ineligible, shouldn’t they at least make certain Penny didn’t help any non-athletes relocate into the Memphis area?
