Default NCAA Bad Move

Kyle Carpenter, who is about to be presented the Medal of Honor, was at Friday nights game. He spent time in both dugouts and was down in the box seating area for part of the game. The NCAA would not allow him to be introduced to the crowd because they stated it would give the Gamecocks and unfair competitive advantage.

The NCAA is an evil, depraved organization. I heard they eat Christian babies!

AD Tanner should have stepped in and told NCAA to kiss off. He is a Medal of Honor recipient....for the USA...not the gamecocks. Hate it when people cave to bullying.

The man was awarded the highest military honor, he deserves recognition. The question is, does he want it? Is he into the limelight or is he doing his best to get his life back?

He's doing a helluva job of getting his life back. I'm fortunate enough to call him a friend of mine, and I can honestly say he's one of the best guys around and deserves the highest honor for his military actions. He's not into the limelight at all, but he does deserve to be recognized.

The NCAA is a joke, they only care about money, nothing else. They show it over and over.

If it's what he wants, then great. My point was more that he might not want to be announced at every home game. Having experience with combat veterans, some are just ready to go back to normal life and some like the attention. His preference, I just hope that the school asked first.

Yea I was down on the field talking to him before the game and I got the feeling he was just there to have fun and enjoy the night. He enjoys just being another guy.

Just to clear a few things, he did not complain about it. He didn't do anything while he was there to draw attention to himself. I recognized him and told one of the Security Staff the next day they should have let him throw out the first pitch. He told me the NCAA told them they would not allow him to be recognized as it would give the Gamecocks and unfair advantage.

That would have been a momentum booster for the team you have to admit that. However I don't agree with the ruling here it is a home game so how in the Hell can that advantage be negated? If they wanted to do that then don't have the teams play at their home stadiums that rule is complete bollocks! Death Penalty to the NCAA!

This.

The one we did back in 2012...that was freaking incredible.

And I would add...although it's always a wonderful sight to see any soldier return home safe and sound, especially into their family's arms, I think we started a trend with that ;)
