  • I dont know if this is even feasible or not but here is the contact info for the NCAA.
    Maybe we could spread this around and around and flood them with calls to #FreeCheick

    Good thought.

    But I am a little afraid of the unpredictability of the effect.

  • @jaybate-1.0 Yeah, tho most loyal Jayhawk supporters are snarling like guard dogs, it might be best to let the big bad sleeping dog lie. If riled prematurely, sleepy ol’ pit bull might just choose to pounce on the program. He will yawn and arise to his dutiful business when the mood occurs.

  • This is something to give to one of those investigative TV shows, like 20/20. Have them setup fake student/athlete admissions and see how the qualification process works. I bet they would find huge, huge problems. Wouldn’t surprise me if the NCAA has an “office pool” and they wager on who gets their eligibility or not and sometimes the decision is made from a coin toss, or by an employee falsifying or leaving out key info.

    There is just NO WAY this is run to any kind of prudent standards. I’m sure their standards are about equal to the Tijuana court system… the judge likes your belt buckle so your fine for their trumped charge is your belt buckle and the $38.23 in your pockets. It would have been higher if you hadn’t lied and said you have no living relatives in the USA who have credit cards…

  • @drgnslayr Sounds like the voice of experience.

  • @ajvan good one!

  • @ajvan

    Yes it was! Luckily for me, it wasn’t my personal experience, but from one of my friends who later shared it with me.

  • @Lulufulu So your plan to speed up the process of going through Cheick’s records and determining his eligibility is to flood the Eligibility Center with more letters and documents to go through and slow down the process of going through Cheick’s documents.

  • @drgnslayr

    Do you think the NCAA Clearing House is not doing a good job? I read somewhere that it processes over 100,000 applications every year and 99% of them go through without any problems. I would be inclined to think it is the students that fail to submit complete application packages that are fault rather than the Clearinghouse that is doing the job it was tasked to do.

  • @JayHawkFanToo The thing is, Cheick Diallo was the MVP of two spring high school classics. It does seem to me that his situation should garner top priority attention from a governing body which luxuriates in dollars gleaned from hoops performers in traditionally Top 10 programs. Cheick’s paperwork must be really something of a complex mess.

  • @JayHawkFanToo

    I can’t really say, but I can vent!

    100,000 applications? Makes you wonder how they pick and choose? So how many are left now?

  • @REHawk

    I prefer to think that all applicant should be treated equally.


    I would think that applications are processed in the order received and those with problems go to different pile where they await until the proper documentation is received. Let’s not be too hasty and claim the delay is the Clearinghouse’s fault; there is a good chance that, as I pointed out before, the issue is due to Diallo’s overseas transcripts not being in order or properly certified.

  • @JayHawkFanToo You said “There is a good chance that, as I pointed out before, the issue is due to Diallo’s overseas transcripts not being in order or properly certified.”

    Just confirming, you haven’t seen anything referring to this, correct? It’s just a reasonable possibility that you are suggesting based on the fact that others from the school have been cleared (who weren’t from overseas) and he hasn’t, correct? Or is there more?

  • @HighEliteMajor

    …what you said and also the fact that I know first hand not only how long it takes to get overseas transcripts sent to the institution requesting them, but how long it takes to evaluate them. Other countries grade differently and the courses do not necessarily have an US equivalent, so a lot of subjectivity and time is involved. I am sure there are not too many applicants from Mali.

    I have to prepare legal document for and from other countries 4 times a year and sometimes one certified letter will take 5-6 week to get to a South American Country. Amazing but a certified letter to another country and sent from Olathe goes through 4 different cities before getting to New York from where it leaves the country; that portion alone takes 7-10 days…and you can track the slow-as-molasses progress via the internet, getting more frustrated every day. I can see how a certified letter from Mali could take several weeks to get here and if clarification is needed or the letter does not contain the required information and must be regenerated, I can imagine how the process can take several months.

  • @JayHawkFanToo

    If they needed to verify his overseas education… didn’t that already get done at Our Savior? Didn’t he have to qualify to attend HS? You would think that they would already possess all his paperwork.

    I was under the impression he did ALL his HS work at Our Savior. Surely, the NCAA wouldn’t go back further than HS…

    You are right, and I am hasty. My anxiety is from a long life of dealing with bureaucratic institutions that were broken and I had to suffer the consequences.

    I know, as you say, that if they are awaiting documentation from abroad it could take a while. It could take years. Especially to African countries. I do have that experience through a friend of mine who had an African step-mother who couldn’t receive her dual citizenship because she didn’t have a proper birth certificate from Africa. She went back to Africa, with her husband, and they still couldn’t get it done. Years upon years… and still no birth certificate. Turned out that her village did not issue birth certificates. She was (and is) S.O.L.

  • @drgnslayr I thought he was here for 3 years(USA)

  • @Texas-Hawk-10 Hey, anything is possible right? I mean, what if we got a petition together with the sigs of 100K Jayhawk fans?

  • @Lulufulu I’m sure coach Self would love that!😁

  • @drgnslayr

    You don’t need much of anything to enroll in HS nowadays, particularly private schools. More likely, the documentation his HS required and what the NCAA does are probably quite different.
