Two thoughts:

1. Hopefully St. John's retains experienced counsel to guide Mr. Heron's hardship request. Anyone reading this post that has influence with St. John's should suggest to our beloved "Mom & Pop" institution retain Michael Glazier to assist Heron's application. Glazier served seven years on the NCAA staff where, in addition to his primary responsibilities involving infractions, compliance and legislative matters. Now is not the time to have someone with no NCAA contact or experience to assist Mustafa Heron

2. Again today, much like Wednesday when Shamorie Ponds announced he would return to play next season, this is NOT a good day for the handful of posters on this site who seemingly enjoy negative information regarding St. John's basketball.

Family Hardship Waivers

Family hardship waivers are some of the most common and most controversial waivers decided by the NCAA. The reason it is so controversial is many student-athletes in football and basketball request these waivers, and whether one is granted or denied can seem inconsistent.

The key thing to remember is that a student-athlete is arguing that the best thing for the athlete and his or her family is to allow the athlete to play immediately and that the athlete needs to transfer to assist with an ill or injured family member. The NCAA measures this in three areas.

Nature of the injury or illness:

The injury or illness should be life-threatening and involve an immediate family member (parent, legal guardian, or sibling). Waivers that are denied typically involve an extended family member (aunt, uncle, grandparent, etc.) unless that family member raised the student-athlete.

Student-athlete’s responsibilities related to the care of the family member:

The more involved the student-athlete is in the day-to-day care for the family member, the more likely the waiver is to be granted.

Chronology of events:

Waivers are more likely to be granted if something changed that prompted the student-athlete’s transfer like a diagnosis, the actual injury, or a worsening condition. Waivers are less likely to be granted if a family member has been ill or injured for a while, and nothing changed that require the student-athlete to transfer.
When requesting the waiver, the school must submit at least three sets of information, much of which will come from the student-athlete or his or her family:

Documentation from the doctor who diagnosed the family member;
Documentation from the doctor who is currently treating the family member; and
A letter from the student-athlete explaining the need for a waiver.
These documentation standards can be hefty. Medical documentation typically includes both a letter from the doctor and medical documents like charts, treatment orders, and prescriptions.

ATTENTION:

Major updates were made to the servers / software hosting redmen.com. There was also one significant change to the website this week to address keeping up with current standards and practices.

It has now become standard practice for all websites to be served as https (as opposed to the original http).


A couple of years ago I enabled https on the site as optional but as of today, the site is forcing https. Any link coming into the site should be automatically converted on the fly and you should not have to do anything on your end.

However if you do notice recent problems, please contact me directly via email: webmaster@redmen.com or via private message on the site.


Also if you have forgotten your username and/or password here are two links to address that (the links only work if you are not currently logged in):
