Boatright's eligibility tied to D-Rose's brother

Is Derrick Rose's older brother part of another NCAA investigation?

Yes, according to a Connecticut newspaper.

The Danbury News-Times reported Saturday that Ryan Boatright's eligibility at Connecticut is under review because of a plane ticket once purchased for the freshman point guard by Reggie Rose, brother of NBA Most Valuable Player Derrick Rose. Boatright spent his high school years playing summer basketball for the D-Rose All-Stars. Reggie Rose coaches the D-Rose All-Stars.

CBSSports.com's attempt to reach Reggie Rose for comment early Saturday was unsuccessful.

Connecticut announced Wednesday that Boatright, a freshman from Illinois, would be held out of games until the NCAA concluded a review of his eligibility, but the school offered no further details at the time. The News-Times reported Saturday that Boatright could be suspended for three to six games once the NCAA's review concludes.

This isn't the first time Reggie Rose and improper travel have been a part of an investigation. The NCAA found that Reggie Rose incurred $2,260 worth of unpaid expenses while traveling with the Memphis basketball team during the 2007-08 season. That season was later vacated once Derrick Rose's SAT score was invalidated.

EVERY coach cheats in some manner.  Some get caught and some don't.  I think the NCAA turns a blind eye to some coaches, but if your program continues to win they will find something.

Your a joke and prob a fan of the biggest cheater Calipari!!! Calhoun is a class act and teaches young men how to become men. What he did with Stanley Robinson is one of the greatest examples of what a college coach should mean to his players. Get your facts straight Calhoun had nothing to do with Reggie Rose.

Wow...quite a mouthful!!  I guess you have nothing better to do!  What do you have against Coach Calhoun anyway?
Oh snap!  You sure got me good!  

But it looks like you don't have anything better to do besides wait for me to post so you can try and come up with some half-witted reply, so I guess you aren't overwhelmed with exciting things to do either, are ya?  

As far as Calhoun goes, he's a known cheater.  He's been caught several times.  He's an ass.  See any press conference with him if you have any doubt about it.  He has zero class.  And he seems to have no trouble at all running a program into the ground academincally so he can chase another title.  

Short of finding out that he rapes puppies, it would be difficult for my opinion of him to be any lower.

To TrollyMcTroller and ukfam1967...the supposed violation that was investigated last year resulted in the university self-imposing a loss of 2 scholarships and a 3-game suspension of coach Calhoun for the 1st 3 conference games this season.  Coach was not found to have committed any violations but rather the suspension is for not knowing what an assistant did behind his back.  There is no loss of playoffs for that texting violation.
I never said otherwise.  Learn to read. (Did you graduate from UConn in 3 years, like Kemba? He never read a book while he was there either)

As for the playoffs in 2013, UConn has a possibility of missing the NCAA tourney if, AND ONLY IF, they faail to meet the new academic standards.  No one ver claimed that the UConn players are in the engineering school.
Unless the NCAA changes the rules to accomodate UConn they don't have a prayer of making the 2013 post season.  



Allow me to quote the article...

UConn expects an APR of 975 for 2010-2011 when that figure is released in May, the  Courant reported. A 975 would bring UConn's averge to 888.5 for a four-year rolling average, still below the required 900. Plus, the two-year average would only be 900.5 (assuming UConn does get the 975 score). That falls well below the 930.

The Huskies have a chance to defend their title this season, but they would be ineligible for the 2013 tournament if the rules remain in place as they are.

For UConn to be eligible in 2012-13, the NCAA would have to change its method and timetable for collecting and releasing APR scores

Here is the important part in case you missed it...

They would be ineligible for the 2013 tournament if the rules remain in place as they are.

That's even if they post the best APR in 2012 in school history.  Fat chance of that happening.

Note that due to Coach Cal and his overlooking D. Rose's fake SAT scores, Memphis had its tournament run invalidated by the NCAA.  Seems to me you bouth need to look into a mirror before throwing stones at Coach Calhoun.
Well, seeing as how I couldn't give a rat's arse about UK or Calipari, I don't really see how that applies to me, but since you want to use Calipari as the standard that's fine.  Calipari and Calhoun both had NCAA toruanment appearances vacated.  Calipari has never been cited or suspended by the NCAA, Calhoun has been cited for lack of institutional control and suspended for part of the 2011 season.  They've both had a boatload of one and done players, but Calipari's teams have never been on academic probation or lost scholarships.  And make no mistake, Calhoun would've vacated another season had Nate Miles not been kicked off campus for the sexual assault scandal.  "Lucky" break fro him, no?  

Great moral compass you have going there husky.  Real great guy to hang your hat on.

Maybe UK can get back tot he Final Four if they try hard enough.
Maybe UConn can too.  They better this season.  It'll be their last chance for a long, long time. Maybe when Calhoun leaves after this season, you guys can hire Kelvin Sampson or Bruce Pearl.

If this is an issue of a plane ticket purchased by an AAU coach for a player, it is just that.  It does not reflect on the college coach or Derrrick Rose or Calipari or Memphis.  If this is an issue of a plane ticket purchased by Reggie Rose for Boatright then it is an issue between Reggie and Boatright and the most the NCAA can do is require Boatright to sit out a game or two and/or repay the ticket money.  Geez, talk about making something out of nothing.
