Dez Is Gone

I just had to put an end to the Lengthy Dez Is Coming Back Thread.


from CBSSports.comís Jeff Goodman:


The former Xavier wing, who was kicked out of school last month following a sexual assault allegation, chose the Terps over Memphis, Oregon and Kentucky.

He made the decision via Twitter this morning.

ďThe last couple of weeks have been the toughest time in my life for my family and I,Ē Wells said. ďIíve learned that it is a major responsibility that comes with being a student athlete at all times. Iím thankful that God has blessed me with a second opportunity to continue my education.Ē

Itís still unclear whether the 6-foot-5 sophomore will receive a waiver to play this season for Mark Turgeon, but sources told CBSSports.com itís likely heíll have to sit out this season and have three years left starting in 2013-14.

Muddy? Look up the word "ironic" in the dictionary. Or would you like a link? Indeed.

Dez is now back. Just at Maryland. Good luck to him.

Maryland just released the news officially that Dez Wells is good to go this season and has won his appeal from the NCAA. Shocking news.

Re: Dez Is Gone

Wow, I can't believe that (I mean I guess I have to, but its beyond shocking to me).

I somehow have a feeling that if Dez had transferred to Maryland-East Shores he'd be sitting out this season.

Wow. I didn't see that coming at all.

Maryland will be a lot better this season. Probably a NCAA team now.

Re: Dez Is Gone

I think the NCAA needs to make a rule change to deal with the perception, if not the reality that the waiver process is handled willy-nilly. It should in my opinion be simple if you transfer to another school you sit out a year. If a player is transferring because an immediate family member is ill, they can use that transfer year to truly help the family and not playing in games. Certainly, a player who is forced to leave school because of a violation of a Student Code of Conduct or because of alleged criminal activity should not be allowed to transfer and play immediately. The one exception to not granting a waiver would be where a player has transferred to school sat out his year, only to see his 'new' coach leave for another job.In that case the player should be allowed to play immediately at a new school.

Re: Dez Is Gone

This is really sickening. In other news, Bona freshman center Matthias Runs, who is academically eligible, can't play this season because he delayed enrollment from HS to college by a year. Wells gets expelled from one D1 school and is good to go immediately. Cute. I wonder if this waiver would have been granted if Wells didn't land at a prominent BCS program...

AND.. Bill Russell.. LOSES the year of eligibility, true? Meaning we have him for 3 seasons starting next year, not 4. Apparently we didn't grease the right palms. The NCAA is a sham of an organization.

Re: Dez Is Gone

I hear Bona has appealed that aspect of the NCAA's ruling.

Re: Dez Is Gone

Interesting decision to say the least. Not sure any NCAA ruling sets a precedent (they seem to do everything ad hoc) but if this one does it could have some unusual fallout.

Re: Dez Is Gone

i can see both sides of the argument.

According to courts Wells was guilty of nothing. He was expelled from Xavier and not reinstated based on a legal situation that was a non-situation. If handled properly he is still at Xavier and playing. I guess the NCAA ruled on that, he had no choice but to transfer and in this case was guilty of nothing.

VCU has two players who appear to have fallen victim to the NCAA's crackdown on basketball mills, so they aren't my current favorite.

I don't hold Dez at fault or say the NCAA is crazy on this though.

Not commenting on whether or not he should be eligible, but the above perception needs to die a gory death. The situation was NOT mishandled. He was expelled because of a violation of the student code of conduct--not because he broke a law. He violated Xavier's code. It was reviewed, the board determined he STILL broke the code. The expulsion was upheld. Apparently, he didn't commit an illegal act, therefore he wasn't prosecuted. But he was GUILTY of breaking Xavier's code (by his own testimony, BTW, he violated the code).

They are not contradictory situations. The code of conduct at Xavier (and all schools) differs in ways from the code of law. I do not get why this is so hard to understand.

Re: Dez Is Gone

Basically, the NCAA is saying we don't believe Xavier. Or, perhaps, they are saying, We believe Xavier but their code of conduct is meaningless.

Re: Dez Is Gone

That is one take. I don't know how they couldn't "believe" Xavier, as it was Dez's own testimony which helped to condemn him. Regardless, I wouldn't pretend to "know" what the NCAA thinks, as their decisions seem to be issued with no regard to precedent. They Nor do they seem to be consistent. You may "understand" them, but given the recent decisions they've made regarding X, there seems to be no particular rhyme or reason to them.
