    James Hudson's waiver denied

    James Hudson's waiver to play immediately was denied by the NCAA today.

    In his statement here : https://twitter.com/__BallisLife2/st...22012030619648 , James basically said that the NCAA decided to deny his waiver because he did not discuss his mental health issue that led him to leave UM, with Michigan before he transferred, and according to NCAA's timetable.

    In an era where mental health is becoming more and more important in college athletics, this totally flies in the face of athlete welfare. I'm not playing therefore I'm legitimately clinically depressed and want to transfer is not an invitation to the NCAA to say sorry about your depression but you're too slow and we're going to make you more depressed for a while.

    This is the same orgranization that randomly gave Justin Fields a rubber stamped waiver to play at OSU because he was buried on the depth chart at UGA and just plain wanted to leave. He should have had to sit one as no hardship existed there.

    I've tweeted at the NCAA asking for where the abritary time table to discuss mental health issues is located in the NCAA bylaws. I bet it doesn't exist but I doubt they'll answer me.

    I also want to be clear on something. This would be a stupid trash decision on the NCAA's part even if James Hudson did not play for UC. It harms the student athlete.

    I really wish the press were more diligent and forceful reporting cases like this. Public pressure needs to be ratcheted up on the NCAA.
    I'm not a fan of the hardship transfer waiver, and this case shows how much this about the top programs. If a kid truly has a hardship, then taking the transfer year off to focus on the student-athlete as a person should require all to sit a year.

    The NCAA is obscenely terrible. Their interest is in money, not the welfare of the student athlete. They need to be sued big time to force reasonable and consistent behavior.

He decide to come home in June, but is still waiting to get a final ruling on his wavier request.

    A part of me is rooting for him to be successful in his request, but there's the potential for my head to explode if his request is granted and James Hudson has to sit this year.

    Not sure if anyone saw James Hudson twitter today but he tweeted, “I just feel like the decision to rule me ineligible should be reversed here soon.” And then 3 hours later a Rutgers QB had his ruling reversed which made him eligible to play, James Hudson then replied to the tweet with the eyeballs emoji. It’s very possible he’s just being hopeful but there’s also the possibility that he’s hearing something going on behind the scenes. Only time will tell.

    Evidently The Athletic had an article about this situation recently (yesterday?); the author (didn't get his name) said he talked to both HCs Fickell and UM's Harbaugh. The author was on with Maurice Egger yesterday at 4:20 PM (if you want to go back and listen); the conversation came around to Harbaugh said he was powerless in the Hudson situation. Overall the author (on the radio interview) made it sound like a 50-50 situation where UM could be right or UC could be right. Or, the NCAA could be totally to blame.

    This AP covered this story, written by Larry Lage; but I can't tell if he's got anything extra because it read as if he was paraphrasing The Athletic. But HC LF sort of comes off as the bad guy.

    In light of this decision I would be really upset if Tennessee receives a favourable ruling from the NCAA on Aubrey Solomon - another Michigan transfer.

    Yikes - I just saw Eyabi Anoma is transferring to the University of Houston - this guy will become a DEVASTATING pass rusher and wreak havoc on QBs - this will be a guy you have to game plan for.
