Either there was some deceit involved (lost her coach sob story, even though the player complained about her) or NCAA was sympathetic towards ND's injury situation (which wasn't that bad at the time).... or they just plain love ND more than other schools. Why wouldn't they love SC though.... Staley not kissing enough arse?

I'm sympathetic to Dawn's complaint about the length of time it's taking the NCAA to make a decision, but given the circumstances of Cooper's transfer, I don't see why the NCAA should be expected to grant this waiver.

Just speculating but the NCAA may be waiting for information from Tenn and Tenn is taking their time providing it. I would guess that if the NCAA had all the necessary information they could process the request for a waiver in a day if they wanted.

Why didn't she submit it three or four months ago? She decided late in the game she needed another warm body and now she's whining the NCAA didn't jump when she demanded it.

Has anyone ever had one of these granted in only one month after it was submitted?

She must have felt sacrificing the time during the pre-conference schedule would increase the odds of approval. The player has been out a season and a half, a good compromise between only being out a season (due to injury) and being out two seasons (a bit extreme).

Just speculating here, but it may be that Cooper needed a semester of good grades at SoCar for academic eligibility reasons. She was allegedly a marginal student at Tenn in addition to the disciplinary issues.

Given the players who have been getting waivers, Cooper should be a no-brainer, IMO. She was kicked off her team and literally couldn't have stayed there and played this year.

That's a lot different than someone who just wanted to be on a different team.

So you're saying, as you"re so fond of putting it, she was trying to "game the system", and it bit her in the ass.

Having waited, she's now pissed the NCAA didn't drop whatever else they were doing in order to take care of her immediately.

Nobody knows that the NCAA isn't going to approve it. The delay appears to be entirely of SCarolina's making.

Logically, yes, but I think traditionally they have frowned upon players who got kicked out for academic or conduct reasons. Just like the proposal to do away with the redshirt requirement is contingent on satisfactory grades and good standing.

She actually wasn't kicked off the team. The school gave her the option of voluntarily transferring or facing disciplinary action for the fight on top of previous infractions. I don't see how that merits a no-brainer waiver.

It’s not about the injury, it’s about the damn “Bad coduct discharge”, if you want to call it that. Dawn is being disingenuous.

I know that with the Shepard to ND situation, Nebraska was helpful in allowing it to happen. That could be a big difference.

Tenn may not be able to release all the disciplinary info. I don't know exactly what took place, but isn't some of that kind of info sealed, particularly if it went to a disciplinary court or conduct committee?

First off, Cooper was not dismissed from the team. She wasn't kicked out of school. There was no "bad conduct discharge". None of that ever happened - it's false narrative (a nice little term that's popular these days, like "fake news"). Now, that might have been something that was looming for Cooper had she chosen to stay at Tennessee and face a Conduct Review for her fight with Nared.

But it never got to that, and one can only speculate as to the outcome regardless. Cooper was given her free release with zero conditions or restrictions.

Secondly, IMO the NCAA hasn't been unfair to South Carolina regarding Cooper's waiver.......yet. We continue to compare Cooper's case with the case of Notre Dame's Shepard. It took from September to November - or about two months - for Shepard to be approved to play this season. At the time, there were plenty of hand-wringing from McGraw and questions from the ND fanbase as to why it was taking so long for a response from the NCAA. McGraw made the comments when the waiver was submitted, that they should expect a response in a matter of a week or so.

Staley's comments regarding Cooper's own waiver were very similar to McGraw's, using the ND case as an example, even though by that time everyone knew it to be different. It took two months for Shepard. But at the start of the season, Staley commented often that she was preparing to submit a waiver to the NCAA asking for Cooper to be waived to play immediately, due to her sitting out the previous season while at Tennessee on red-shirt.

But then Staley waited. For some reason she chose to wait until after the fall semester was over before submitting it. There was some comments and vague references to "the student-athlete experience", and of the transferring student-athlete having time to become acclimated to her new school, classes, environment.

So some speculated Staley waited a semester to allow for Cooper to acclimate herself to South Carolina's campus. Then Staley made comments about waiting for Cooper's grades before submitting the waiver. Was Cooper struggling in class? Would she be academically ineligible for the Spring Semester, and therefore render any waiver approval from the NCAA moot?

In any case, Staley submitted the waiver at the end of December. If Cooper's case followed Shepard's case to the letter, and everything else factoring outside of them were irrelevant, USC shouldn't hear any response from the NCAA until sometime in February. So I am not sure why Coach Staley keeps questioning the delay in a response on Cooper, if she's really using the Shepard/ND case as a point of reference. Otherwise, everything is still within the timeline.....

In our early season podcast she said just that, she thought waiting until after the first semester to show academics, etc. would benefit.

Seriously though, there really is no reason why it should take this long to make a decision yes or no.

I trust it's obvious that Dawn has some connections to the NCAA. It's not like she's taken to twitter because she doesn't know who to call.

Which means her twitter comments are not about directly communicating with the NCAA, but trying to garner public support for her position and possibly hoping that public pressure will move the NCAA to act.

What I can't quite figure out is whether this is a clever move or too clever by half. I'm leaning toward the latter. If the NCAA is disposed to responding positively but just has been dragging their feet, coming out in favor now is going to look like the cave to public pressure and it will open the floodgates for the next situation. If anything, that would encourage them to either disallow it or dried the feet even longer.

No, Cooper was not kicked out of school...but she likely would have been. My former connections to the disciplinary board tell me that this is exactly what would have happened. I'm pretty sure there was some other stuff besides the fight. She'd been in trouble with the Disciplinary Board before, remember? I told you it wasn't her first offense. This was why she was on the verge of being dismissed from school and had already lost her scholarship. She got off easy, seriously. There are athletes who have been dismissed from UT for less.

Dawn is playing the publicity game here. She thinks by garnering public sympathy she can get a release. I doubt it will happen. Shepard had the coach thing, but AFAIK she had no behavioral or grade issues. Dawn would be better served by shutting up and letting the NCAA do whatever it's going to do.....and I think what it's going to do is nothing. Cooper will be eligible next year. Why would they grant her eligibility now, and waste a whole year?

Cooper allegedly started the fight, and Nared didn't have previous disciplinary problems like Cooper did. Also, the fight was filmed and the coaches reportedly had access to it so I would assume they had good reason for whatever actions they took.

The waiver request is an administrative issue and administratively Cooper left in good standing. Second, she will in all likelihood lose a year. She has already had a redshirt season and a 6th year is not guaranteed. I have no problem with Cooper graduating with only 2 years of BB. Not every athlete is interested in multiple degrees and some simply haven't the capability. There is no way it takes 2 months to process one of these requests. Having worked in government for over 30 years I have seen 2 month processes squeezed into 8 hours when there was a will to do so.

I thought two of her comments were revealing. First, that she wouldn't bother having her staff submit an appeal. Second that she didn't want Cooper for a sixth year even if she could get it. Together these reveal pretty clearly that the only thing she has wanted has been to get Cooper right now for the end of this year, and she really isn't interested in helping Cooper to extend her eligibility and playing days beyond this year.

Lesson is, as usual, don't pressure someone to rush a decision, or you just might not like the answer you get. The easiest answer to provide quickly is typically "no". I learned that a long time ago with judges.

OTOH, Cooper's loose-cannon performance while at Tenn wouldn't lead me to believe that she's going to step on the court at SC and be an instant game changer for the remainder of this season.

She’s been practicing with the team, so Staley probably likes what she’s seen.

Well, Dawn can just get over it, because "Not this year." Te'a might play next year to up her draft stock, and then she's gone with the wind. She's only in this for herself.

Why? If she leaves with eligibility she would be no different from Parker.

Cooper could play next year and then decide to either turn pro, stay for another year or transfer to another school where she would be able to play her 5th year. And whatever she decides I hope she puts her needs first.

Because Cooper's whole attitude is different from Candace's, that's why. Rolling Eyes

My recollection of Parker beyond her immense talent was that like Cooper she broke rules and then left Tenn before her eligibility was up. Some Vol fans have hinted that like Cooper she wasn't the most loved person in the locker room. But then I am speculating based on second and third hand reports. What is your opinion based on? Do you have actual first hand information?

Why? If she leaves with eligibility she would be no different from Parker.

Cooper could play next year and then decide to either turn pro, stay for another year or transfer to another school where she would be able to play her 5th year. And whatever she decides I hope she puts her needs first.


Because Cooper's whole attitude is different from Candace's, that's why. Rolling Eyes


My recollection of Parker beyond her immense talent was that like Cooper she broke rules and then left Tenn before her eligibility was up. Some Vol fans have hinted that like Cooper she wasn't the most loved person in the locker room. But then I am speculating based on second and third hand reports. What is your opinion based on? Do you have actual first hand information?


Cooper broke curfew once, and didn't start fights with the team captain. Rolling Eyes You seem to want to magnify that into something it wasn't. Pat would not put up with continual disruption from anyone. You probably don't remember Peggy Evans. I do. Candace wasn't a continual disruptive, petty force on the team. Once Cooper didn't have DD to hide behind she was apparently a real brat. And let's just say I have my sources. Holly is too nice sometimes. One thing she apparently didn't learn from Pat is when to crack down.

Didn't Parker leave when pretty much the rest of UT's starters were graduating?

According to this Post & Courier article, a reason (not THE whole reason, but "a" reason) why the NCAA didn't grant Cooper the waiver was apparently we find out that Cooper wasn't really released with no restriction or conditions, like UTjr. stated publicly that she was. The NCAA communicated with UTjr., and learned that UTjr. did NOT agree with Cooper getting the waiver:

Quote:
“It’s basically, if Te’a’s previous institution would have agreed to allow her to play, it would have helped our cause,” Staley said Friday. “But they didn’t agree.”

Staley pointed out that it was no guarantee the NCAA would have accepted the waiver if Tennessee had cleared Cooper. She also said she could see herself doing the same if it was one of her players transferring within the league.

“It’s probably because just her transferring,” Staley said. “I probably would have looked at it the same way, especially being in the same conference.”

Tennessee coach Holly Warlick was asked on Jan. 14 if Tennessee had placed any restrictions on Cooper’s transfer. “Not to my knowledge,” Warlick answered.

I've no problem with a school protecting itself but come on, if Tenn put restrictions on a player's transfer there is no fucking way the head coach can deny any knowledge.

Reminds of the answer Tenn gave when asked if they reported UConn oh so long ago. "No, we didn't make the complaint, it came from the SEC".

There's nothing wrong with being a ruthless competitor but don't hide from it.

Does the SEC have intraconference transfer rules (IOW, penalties if you transfer to another SEC school). I know other conferences have had those.

I find it ironic that you refer to Tennessee as UTjr, when two names that South Carolina often call themselves USC and Carolina, are more commonly linked to other schools.

So Staley now tells the newspaper that the real reason Cooper was turned down was because Tennessee objected.

Notably absent is any apology for her assinine bullshit assertion that other coaches lie on their applications.

What a selfish, arrogant, self-impressed asshole she is. A legend in her own mind.

Geno's almost likeable in comparison to her. At least he's actually earned the right to be arrogant.

SEC 14.5.5 Four -Year College Transfers.
See NCAA Bylaw 14.5.5.
14.5.5.1 Transferring within the Southeastern Conference
A transfer student from a member institution shall not be eligible for intercollegiate competition at another member institution until the student has fulfilled a residence requirement of one full academic year (two full semesters) at the certifying institution. Further, a transfer student-athlete admitted after the 12th class day may not utilize that semester for the purpose of establishing residency. Student-athletes meeting the terms of NCAA Bylaws 14.5.5.2.1, 14.5.5.2.2, 14.5.5.2.3, 14.5.5.2.4, 14.5.5.2.5, 14.5.5.2.6, 14.5.5.2.7, 14.5.5.2.8 and 14.5.5.2.9 may seek a waiver of the provisions of this bylaw.

I find it difficult to believe that the Univ of Tennessee's conditions weren't already disclosed to Cooper, specifically when she was encouraged to leave in lieu of facing additional disciplinary action. Dawn's waiver request seems like a Hail Mary, and now that's it's failed, she's being disingenuous by blaming Tenn and using terms like "lawyer up," instead of just saying the request was a long shot and moving on. When Kelsey Bone decided to transfer, Staley prohibited her from even playing at another SEC school. What's good for the goose, etc.
