NCAA Looking into Hayward's Eligibility

Ouch. This one could really hurt. Hayward is a likely starter - - - - or so we hope.

Check out the updated article Tuesday morning from Rosiak.

A quick Google news search of "NCAA Clearinghouse" proves that this process is somewhat routine. The search yielded 34 full pages of results - - keep in mind, all of these articles appeared within the last month alone. The majority of the cases cited in these reports deal with football players' eligibility for the current semester.

The reaction to the Clearinghouse's investigations tended matter of fact (hey, its standard operating procedure -- yet its interesting that the Clearinghouse process draws so little scrutinty). A few articles did take the process to task a bit - here's an example from The Advocate in Baton-Rouge.

For more information, here's a link to the Clearinghouse's official site.
