We feel for you, Braxton Beverly.

Huuuuuuuump Daaaaaaaaaay! You’re not going to believe this, but the NCAA is trying to dick over another basketball player for handling his academics in the right way. Incoming freshman Braxton Beverly originally enrolled at Ohio State expecting to play for Thad Matta. When he retired, Beverly was granted his release and went to NC State instead

But get this - he started summer classes at OSU before heading to NC State, and now the NCAA wants to make him take a year off! Omari Spellman, you are not alone in the ‘took too much class’ category anymore.

Being a Power 5 school I’m sure NC State will lobby this and win. But never change, morons at the NCAA.

Side note, I’m heading out of town for some extended vacation time so don’t burn the place down without me.

And now, the “news.”
