Ok, so boosters can adopt 18 year old or older players and give them money/gifts. Now we know. We shouldn't be surprised. Sandra Bullock made a movie about that, The Blind Side.

Sounds like a investment deal to me. Adopt him now give him a little money, and if he makes to the NFL he can draw a little money out the deal.

Im sure the kid doesn't mind being played with but that's kinda sick just for a football game.

The Floyd/Byrd treatment never sat well with me. Byrd was suspended 4 games but never played a down as an illegal player. Floyd played a full season and then got 2 games. Also, Byrd was considered a key piece of our NCAA sanctions, but UF never got any heat.

I've heard that the difference (2 vs. 4) was the two families' financial situation. If that is true, then how in the world is that relevant? Breaking the rules is breaking the rules.

Not saying NCAA rulings ever make sense, but this was far from apples-to-apples.

The difference was that the guys running that foundation were USC grads. Even though they had helped many kids and Byrd was the 1st one to come to USC. That was where the problem was.

Floyd's adoptive father is supposedly the USC booster who is basically not allowed to have anything to do with the school because of NCAA sanctions. If I am not mistaken he was also involved in the Byrd/Floyd incident since his 'disavowal', for lack of a better word, happened last fall.

I remember that too when they stated they took into account his background which is complete b.s. I understand that for some kids especially in poverty it is difficult to turn down things but the punishment should be standard and not based on socioeconomic status.

Default Re: Florida's Shariff Floyd Adopted by Booster!

I see opportunities for attorneys to create a nationwide system to assist in "adoption" of high school players by wealthy alumni. This system would make adoption easier and available to all high school athletes with the credentials to make it to the next level. It is a wonderful solution to the problem of how to fairly compensate college athletes; as long as it is all legal of course.

But let's not stop there. These young athletes will need "Adoption Councilors" to help them through the process, negotiate the adoptive arrangement including proper living conditions and parental support, and insure that the terms of the adoption contract are fair and commensurate with the athlete's future potential. After all, we don't want a bunch of fat cat alums taking advantage of youth and inexperience.

Lastly, we will need to increase the size and scope of the NCAA so they can adequately monitor the activities of student athletes and the collegiate institutions. Enforcement of the rules will be paramount to maintaining the integrity of college athletics. It's ok for "Johnny QB" to drive a Bentley provided by his adoption parents, but, we sure can't allow average fans to do anything so crazy as providing homemade cookies to the players after a game. I mean, you have to draw the line somewhere!

All of this makes perfect sense. Student athletes are fairly treated; jobs are created; wealth is distributed more evenly throughout societal strata and the NCAA gets greater authority and wider scope. Are there any losers in this scenario?

I think the real problem we had is that Kevin is a prominent represntative of USC while he has no connection at Florida.

Your OL is in better shape than ours. This is where area where I think we haven't been good enough. Your line opens holes and pass protects better than we do so hopefully we adopt players better than you! :)
