Heckuva job, Indiana.

This is quite the screw up.

Enjoy your unplanned redshirt season, kid.

    Shame for the kid. That really sucks. The only thing positive I can say is that at least Indiana “owned it”, though they did try to drag the NCAA under the bus with them.

    If the NCAA has let this slide, just think of all the “mistakes” Ole Miss and Auburn would have made.

    It’s hard for me to understand all of these grey areas and technicalities to college admission. Why would the kid have time to remedy his ineligibility if IU Compliance had not been in error? Something must have been missing from his high school academic record.

      Basically, University compliance departments have to take the lead on making sure prospective senior HS students are in compliance with NCAA Clearinghouse regulations. If, for example, a student has not taken enough Math credits in high school to meet NCAA minimum requirements, the University Compliance dept is supposed to catch that and inform the prospective student how they can go about making up for it (usually an online Summer school course but, if caught early enough, it can even be a case of taking Geometry instead of Pottery in their final Spring of their Senior year). The assertion here is that IU’s compliance department must have told the kid he was totally clear and good to go when he wasn’t. By the time they realized their oversight, it was too late for him to take a make-up class or classes.
