Notre Dame’s national championship hero Arike Ogunbowale led her team to victory and made the cover of Sports Illustrated.

The 21-year-old will take on the competition with pro Gleb Savchenko.

I guess her partner can go/has gone to South Bend to train with her so she doesn't miss classes. At least they normally train for 3 weeks prior to the start (April 30th)of the normal 10-week show (this one is only 4 weeks).

Contestants make a nice chunk of change on that show. How does that work?

The list of contestants gets more painful every time. About half from the Winter Olympics?

It's hard to square it with an NCAA that doesn't allow players to sell their own autographs or memorabilia.

I had never watched the show until former Packers player Donald Driver was on it. That was the only season I ever watched it. I may tune into this one at the beginning to check it out though.

Two last second game winning shots in consecutive games isn't something that's common. It kind of makes you stand out.

BTW, she was the leading scorer in the ACC, so it's not like she was that "middle of the pack."

I think it's a great chance of publicity. Probably won't win a lot of converts over to WCBB but it's an opportunity to take wcbb outside the usual narrow parameters in which it's confined.

I don't understand why it's not a violation for Ogunbowale to participate. The NCAA generally doesn’t allow student-athletes to capitalize on their college fame, even to the extent of selling their own autograph or memorabilia. How is a nationally televised competition any less of a threat to amateurism?

Or...

Disney/ABC/ESPN decided to do a sports themed DWTS so they wanted to include people from various sports.

Who to get from Women's Basketball? Unfortunately, the WNBA is currently playing, so it's doubtful any of their players could make it. How about someone from college?

They talk with the NCAA and the NCAA, who wants to keep ESPN happy because they broadcast a lot of games in various sports and has large contracts with them, giving the NCAA a lot of money, says "Okay."

Who in Women's College Basketball is well known among the general public right now? How about the player who just hit back to back last second game winning baskets?

See? Easy to explain without the big, super powerful, almighty ND pulling the NCAA's strings! Wink

I guess maybe they view the autograph and memorabilia as personal promotion, but might consider this "promoting the sport as a whole?" They might view it as keeping the thought of Women's Basketball in the public awareness.

I'm not saying it's justified based on their stances in other circumstances. I'm just saying that might be their rationale. Just spit-balling here.

Oh yeah ND gets all the favoritism. Right.

You mean like the way ND had their last 15 conference tournaments in their home state (including 10 BET on their home court) and had 3 of their last 5 regionals in their home state and the other two just one state over?

Oh wait. That wasn't ND...

In my understanding, athletes can get paid for doing stuff *not connected with their sport* so long as they don’t capitalize on that sport while doing it.

Some of y’all really need to pull the splinters out of your behinds.

This is an absurd twisting of the rules given the other decisions they have made. The only reason for her being able to be on the show is trading on her fame from college basketball. The name of the show is "Dancing With The Stars" and she would in no way be considered a "Star" if it weren't for her basketball play. The idea that the money she earns will be as a result of her dancing ability, and therefore not related to her athletic prowess or fame, is ridiculous. It would be like saying that a player selling autographs is making money from his or her penmanship.

If this ruling signals a change in NCAA thinking about allowing players to make money based on their fame while they are still engaged in college sports then I am all for it, but this seems to fly in the face of several other decisions the NCAA has made, and as such it appears shameful. The only hope is that this ruling, perhaps in concert with the Ed O'bannon decision, can be used to allow players to earn money from their fame while they are in college.

How is this not capitalizing on her sport? Her cast bio spends the whole first paragraph recounting her accomplishments on the court. No one can reasonably think she would have even been invited if not for her hitting the gamers in the F4.

Two things about this that haven't been discussed...

Even top athletes who compete in this actually mention how strenuous the workouts are (Yeah, people often discount how much work it takes to dance professionally).

As such, on one hand it should make her even more nimble on the court.

However, there is the other side of this...

Injuries aren't exactly unknown on the show either. I've only been watching the last 2-3 years (While I've been taking care of my mother. It's one of her favorite shows). While I don't recall any ACLs, there have been quite a few ankle sprains and other leg injuries.

Side note: She should probably stay clear of Tonya Harding... Wink

Here's an article that mentions the NCAA's rationale:

https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaabk/opinion-ncaa-breaks-its-rules-for-dwts-and-thats-progress/ar-AAvRnup?ocid=spartandhp&ffid=gz

But the NCAA found a loophole and is giving Ogunbowale a hand to help her squeeze through it. She can’t do any promotional work for the show, other than announcing she’s on it, because that would capitalize on her “athletics ability.” Any prize money she wins would be the result of her dancing achievements, however, and thus would be hers to keep.

I think it might be because she will be dancing, not playing bball. The bball is what got her noticed, but it is the dancing that will get her paid.

That's not consistent with what the NCAA has done in the past

How is it not consistent? You can't just make a claim like that with nothing to back it up.

Selling their autograph or memorabilia is DIRECTLY tied to the sport. Does the NCAA prohibit them from selling their books (when they used books), dress shoes, dresses, suits, ties, kitchenware, their car, etc?

This seems more like a 'normal' job to me. Yeah, she got the job because of bball, but how is it any different than getting a summer job at Walmart because the hiring manager knew that the person played on the team?

And, hey, even the NCAA can change!!!!! Wink

If the pay hasn't change, the minimum for DWTS is $250,000 is you're the first eliminated.

From a different perspective, assuming Arike's dance partner will be a man, this pairing will serve to reassure viewers that most women athletes are straight. Wink

Do you know how many players have been disciplined by the NCAA for getting jobs because the hiring manager knew who they were? Too many to count.

And how many of those were boosters (or booster-arranged) providing "no-show" jobs to the athlete?

This is a legit job that the NCAA (and world for that matter) will be able to monitor.

It does seem like the NCAA should have told Notre Dame "no"when they asked whether Arike dancing would be permissible. But Notre Dame did the right thing by asking them beforehand. The NCAA may have decided that this publicity for WCBB might, on balance, make it worthwhile for them to allow it.

I would think that if anyone has issue with this decision, they should complain about the NCAA and not complain about Notre Dame. (Thankfully, most posters seem to be complaining about the NCAA's inconsistency and not Notre Dame.)

A quick google showed that the stories and ads for DWTS don't show Arike, unlike the other celebrity contestants. She's getting a one-sentence explanation of who she is, with no photograph. I can't see how that constitutes advertising, recommendation, or promotion. Nor is it providing much value or utility to DWTS...her name is probably the least recognizable of the celebrities.

If ND applied to the NCAA, and the NCAA agreed, or devised guidelines for Arike to follow, like no promotional photographs pre-event, I don't see how either she or ND is at fault.

Notre Dame didn't do anything wrong. Ogunbowale certainly didn't do anything wrong. The issue is the NCAA being full of it.

Agree 100%

The cases of Jeremy Bloom (Olympic Skier who wanted to be a Colorado football player) or Donald De La Haye (UCF Kicker who made money from You Tube videos) were both terrible rulings. This is only terrible from the standpoint that it is completely at odds with its previous position.

People bitch and bitch and bitch that the NCAA a non-evolving organization. That they are 'mean' to athletes getting 4-5 years of free or subsidized education.

When they do try to do something different in favor of an athlete, people bitch and bitch and bitch.

The NCAA is an organization with rules. You can choose to follow the rules religiously or follow them with an eye towards reason, appropriateness and in furtherance of its purpose. Unfortunately the NCAA seems to jump back and forth between these two, making their decisions arbitrary and constantly subject to criticism.

This is a perfect example where, if a previous poster is correct, they will allow one player to receive $250,000 as a result of her play, but they won't allow others to keep $5,000 for sinking a half-court shot in a contest and still play. Change the rules (and not just to exclude National TV shows broadcast by Disney) and I have no problem; but this is wrong.

as long as the rules are in flux for certain schools like ND, then its all a sham....they're not even embarrassed about it....

no one can say why transfer rules are favorable to some, and punitive to others...

its almost like the NCAA is laughing in our faces...

you little people...follow the rules....others...wink wink....

How is this not capitalizing on her sport? Her cast bio spends the whole first paragraph recounting her accomplishments on the court. No one can reasonably think she would have even been invited if not for her hitting the gamers in the F4.


I think it might be because she will be dancing, not playing bball. The bball is what got her noticed, but it is the dancing that will get her paid.


That's not consistent with what the NCAA has done in the past


You want consistency from the NCAA? Good luck with that... Wink

I assume you are suggesting the Shepard situation. It's not like she was a unique situation, as some here imply:

Leticia Romero (From KSU as Freshman in 2013-14 to FSU as sophomore in 2014-15)
Chantrice White (From Illinois as sophomore (2015-16) to FSU as junior (2016-17)
Natalie Romeo (From Nebraska (stick a pin in this part, I'll get back to it below) as a sophomore (2015-16) to Washington as a junior (2016-17)).


In all the above cases the coach had been fired (in at least 3 of the 4 (including Shepard) the coach was being investigated by the university), and the players petitioned for the exemption.

The only thing that set Shepard apart from the rest above was that she ended up playing a key role in winning a National Championship.

The NCAA has allowed gymnasts to compete in "professional gymnastics competitions" and post Olympic tours while maintaining their college eligibility, some did it before they were enrolled in college, some did it while they were enrolled in college. Not sure how it worked regarding prize money, prizes or payment for participation. but they have been allowed to participate or perform, however you'd like to phrase it.

Over 30 years ago, after the Jeremy Bloom fiasco (who was ruled ineligible for football at Colorado because he was making buckets of money as a World Cup and Olympic skier) the NCAA made it so you student-athletes are only ineligible for a sport if they accept money for that particular sport in which they are getting paid, and could continue to play other college sports.

Allowing a basketball player to get paid for a dance show doesn't strike me as all that unusual a ruling. Any more than a college football player getting paid to play professional baseball during summers, which happens frequently.
