NCAA hypocritical in enforcement of controversial transfer waiver

Welcome to the maddening world of the transfer athlete at the mercy of the NCAA, where the rules apply as written — unless they don’t.
We’ll start with Masoli. The NCAA is probably 100 percent correct in its assertion that Masoli used the rule to avoid sitting out a year at his new school after he was tossed off Oregon’s football team in June following his second legal scrape in less than six months. The NCAA’s decision to delay the granting of the waiver until 2011 probably would be considered a noble act if no one Googled the names Kenneth Cooper or Eniel Polynice.
