Thread: SMN Update on JD King

  1. #1

    Default SMN Update on JD King

    https://www.savannahnow.com/sports/2...ansfer-jd-king

    This was posted in the Media Links board, but it's big enough to be on the Flight Line.

    In short, King has met 2 of the 3 requirements to be able to play right away and not sit a year. The third requirement is that he be at a school within 100 miles of his home. His home is 114 miles from Georgia Southern.

    Come on, NCAA, do the right thing and just clear him.

    If it comes down to the NCAA doing the right thing, we all know how this will go.....

    That organization wouldn't know "right thing" if it grew legs, walked over and bit them in the ***.

    I wonder how many equivalent college football programs there are within 100 miles of his house? Which one would the NCAA expect him to choose?

    The 'Measure Distance' feature in Google Maps allows you to measure the distance between two points as the crow flies. Between Statesboro and Fitzgerald I get a reading of 99.4 miles.

    I wonder if that's relevant.

    No because you would need King’s Family member’s address in the Fitzgerald district.

    If splitting hairs over how to define the distance really makes a difference, you might as well just grant the appeal.

    Unless the NCAA bylaws have specific language for how to define the distance like "MapQuest driving distance between sick relative's house and the geographic center of the campus", which I doubt.

    May have to measure to the 50 yard line or where he resides in Statesboro.

    What BillyBob said.

    1- Do the NCAA rules actually address this issue with such specificity?
    2- Do you have King's relative's address? If so, have you measured that distance?
    3- If the answer to my first question is "yes", what is the end point measurement in the 'Boro? The courthouse? The middle of campus? Paulson Stadium?

    I don’t have any answers to any of that other than the distance from the center of Fitzgerald to the center of Statesboro is irrelevant.

    Well I guess in terms of #2 no I don’t have his address but I’m going to guess the NCAA does and they have measured the distance and came up with 114 miles.. I mean just a wild guess.
