You gotta love the NCAA, they continue to twist the rules as they see fit.
From the OCR...
Former USC running back Amir Carlisle has been granted an eligibility waiver for the 2012 season by the NCAA. Carlisle, who is now at Notre Dame, was expected to sit out the 2012 season.
So, like I asked above, where is the Hardship?
Alex Stepheson wasn't allowed to play for USC hoops without sitting out a year and his story was well documented.
Carlisle's only "hardship" was that his parents moved to Purdue and they wanted him closer.
More double standards by the folks in Indy. Then again, if you ask Pat Haden, these are fair minded people....
