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.

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

NCAA continues to lose credibility. If the truth be known, there is no one playing NCAA ball who didn't have someone buy them a sandwich, slip a few dollars into their pocket or grease their tires somehow. That is common knowledge to anyone who has been  around any school.

Now if someone has an axe to grind they just go public "When so and so was 11 years old, we gave him a drive to the airport and bought him lunch, oh and bought a house for his mom."

Whatever! The ultimate hypocricy is when you pretend to be something you are not and NCAA's attitude to all this shows that they want to pretend this type of thing doesn't happen when we all know it does- all the time.

"Derrick Rose's SAT scare was invalidated."

Nice spell check Mr. Parrish!

How much do you get paid? 


Spellcheck would not catch this error because "scare" is spelled correctly.
Same thing for "to,too,two"
Its spellcheck not proper word usage check.....just sayin.......

Crank up that stereo and cue up some Poison: Every rose has its thorns.  
 
This particular breed of roses has too many thorns.  It seems like everywhere they go, somebody gets gashed.  If I was a coach on any "amateur" level, I would develop an allergy to roses.

Of all the lame-brained things I have ever heard of! Did this have anything to do with recruitment ??? I think the NCAA has to do a whole lot of Soul searching in this day and age of Big Money, espicially that which it recieves from College sports. IT'S BIG BUISNESS!!!!!!
