how much could litigation costs be with hiring this high profile NCAA lawyer?

I'd have to think there's a limit to what school can realistically justify in spending to outsource, vs. attempt to keep in house as a university w/ law school and many law grads.


1. You do not want to litigate this matter. Glazier has been a fixture in and out of the NCAA network for the past several decades. He knows the Investigators and NCAA attorneys by name. He may have hired on or more of them when he was employed by the NCAA. He is better able to make things happen behind the scene (see: UNC) than anyone else I am aware of.

2. There is no limit to what a school can pay for legal representation to work with the NCAA to advance its position. There is however a substantial cost to have someone/ group with little or no experience represent St. John's in seeking Mr. Heron's eligibility.

I realize there's technically no limit and definitely don't want to bring a knife to a gun battle...

my question was more along the lines of what can SJU realistically afford in attorney fees to fight this, if supposedly school is in financial challenge ?

$50K, 100K ...more ?

I'm sure they want Heron and willing to hire attorney, just not sure to what degree..

SEC grad transfers no longer must sit out a year when transferring to another league school, SEC presidents voted today. Previously, SEC required grad transfers to sit out a year when transferring to another SEC school


Don't some conferences--in fact, doesn't the BEC block players from transferring within the conference?


This was a football move. Saban is gonna be mad. (most other coaches where supporting waivers to let their grad transfers go anywhere without having to sit).

I am not sure anyone can predict what experienced legal represention will cost to prosecute this request for an medical eligibility waiver because no one likely knows how long the proceeding will take.

If Mr. Heron’s application is promptly accepted then the legal fees would be far- far less than if there is a hearing with adjournments and appeals after a negative determination. For the more drawn out version the legal fees could easily top six figures.

St. John’s must ask itself if wants to be a “prime time paogram” of a secondary program. If the St. John’s Administration wants to play with the bigs then it should hire one of the handful of attorneys with substantial experience in dealing with the NCAA to prosecute Mr. Heron’s request for the medical hardship waiver.

If St. John’s is willing to settle as a secondary program then it will hire an attorney who reads the NCAA procedures manual for the first time and give the appeal a whirl.

As the old saying goes, “a good attorney knows the law, but a better attorney knows the law and the Judge”. In this instance the judge and Jury is the NCAA .

The issue will go a long way in defining St.John’s commitment to its athletic program and it athlete.

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.
