I'm no compliance officer. But my best guess is we are holding billy p. out because if he has really stepped in it, we don't want to have to forfeit these games down the line. You know, in the event he is declared ineligible.

The man can't get us if he NEVER played.

I feel almost ashamed, like I am beating up on a crippled kid.

But, since you started it, and you keep getting back up for more--

http://www2.kusports.com/news/2017/oct/3...mens_basketball

From Matt Tait's article--

Few moments during Tuesday’s 100-54, exhibition victory by Kansas over Pittsburg State at Allen Fieldhouse had as much raw emotion and jaw-dropping excitement as Billy Preston’s hammer dunk in transition after a soft pass from Newman just a few minutes into the freshman forward’s Kansas career.

Later on in the article--

Self said after the game that he thought Preston would be fine and that an off day on Wednesday would do him some good.

He also said he wanted to see Preston play a little smarter so he could earn more minutes.

Checkmate. Again.

I think this settles it once and for all.

Don't get back up again. It ain't gonna get any prettier.

No one is disputing that billy p. did or did not play in the exhibitions. We know he played in the exhibitions. All I am saying is that the exhibitions do not count.

If billy p. nevers suits up from here forward, it's like he never existed in KANSAS basketball history.

Box scores for exhibition games are meaningless.

Why the dullards don't get that is nearly unexplainable. My 7 year old grandson gets it. My 87 year old mother gets it. Oh well, dullards be dullards.

He may well be cleared to play. If not, he will have some kind of suspension imposed by NCAA for impermissible benefits. Those suspensions can be retroactive to include games he has already been held out of (see 2 Georgia Tech players this year).

Thanks for reiterating my sentiments. BTW, I am a compliance officer.

I am pleased to report that there is nothing new to report. Our office has more pressing issues like Thanksgiving leftovers and checking things off our Christmas shopping list. Then there's New Year's Eve and all the bowl games on New Year's Day. Check back with us at the beginning of second semester.
