I just read that Chase Young, The Ohio State premier D-Lineman has been suspended for accepting a loan from a long time family friend.
(someone he met 2 years ago after he signed with OSU, but before he started classes  ðŸ˜‚   )

This is a game changer.

He is a very talented player that can certainly disrupt offenses.

He gone...……….

Just curious, but how is taking a personal loan from somebody an NCAA violation to begin with? Should the NCAA just go ahead and suspend all athletes that have outstanding credit card debt or car loans (which is probably a large number of athletes)?

The NCAA is just a joke, can’t wait until athletes are able to capitalize on their likeness and the NCAA just goes away for good.

Taking a "loan" is a violation because you cant distinguish between what's an actual loan and what is a booster, agent, or " family friend", just giving you money.

Taking a loan is not a violation.  This is the rule that is in question:

As long as Young had a relationship with the person who gave him the loan before Ohio State began recruiting him, he should be fine.  It sounds like he didn't know this person until after Ohio State began recruiting him so that is why it is a violation.  The person who gave him the loan was not considered an agent or a booster.

I get the gist of what you’re saying, but it still is an overall harsh standard to subject Student Athletes to. And after reading yzerman1’s post that actually defines the rule, it just makes me even more pissed off at the NCAA. 

Even if the kid were just given the money by somebody close to him, with no expectation of repayment, how the BLEEP is that an “extra benefit” simply because he’s an athlete? I’m pretty sure if a “normal” college student fell on hard times and needed money, they could reach out to family/friends for financial help...sooo again, how is what Chase did in any way taking advantage of his status as an athlete?

i agree that it is stupid, that is why I want the rules to change.  However as to the rules that are currently in place, its awfully dumb of Chase Young to take money from a guy he just met after being recruited by OSU.  See the case against Chris Webber.

What any intelligent person would have done would be to have the guy loan the money to his girlfriend for the trip.  Kind of like how Cam Newton didn't take any money to go to Auburn, his dad did.
