St. Edward's Player's Eligibility in question

    I just heard a player could be suspended on a news teaser. Anyone have any information on who, or what's going on. They didn't give any names!

    yeah, i heard this too. apparently they may have to forfeit 4 games for a player who didn't even start for them. hopefully, for the team's and for Boone's sake, this isn't the case and they won't have to forfeit. this seems to be their year for a run at the state title from what i've seen and i wanna see them play again when they come to canton for the finals!

    i certainly have no inside information regarding the situation, but take this for what it's worth. a poster on the forums worked the math and figured that if they win out, they may still get enough computer points to barely slide into the playoffs with a 6-4 record. not sure if he knows his math, but that would mean that the season wouldn't be "over" for them.

    edit: from reading the rest of the forums, it sounds like it was a transfer student who didn't get the paperwork filed. take it fwiw

    Eagles forfeit four wins for using ineligible player

    [size=-1]Associated Press[/size]

    <!-- begin body-content -->COLUMBUS, Ohio - Lakewood St. Edward, the unbeaten and No. 2-ranked big-school team in Ohio, will forfeit four victories for using an ineligible player, the Ohio High School Athletic Association announced Thursday.

    St. Edward drops from 6-0 to 2-4 and will have a difficult time qualifying for the postseason playoffs.

    The OHSAA, the sanctioning body for prep sports in the state, was informed by St. Edward administrators on Sept. 27 of the possible violation of OHSAA rules. The player in question did not meet rules regarding transfers.

    "St. Edward administrators are certainly to be commended for informing our office about the situation and for conduction a thorough administrative review when it discovered the ineligibility," said OHSAA Commissioner Dan Ross. "Their actions were certainly honorable and I have sympathy for the players, coaches, fans and St. Edward community."

    The all-boys school with an enrollment of just over 650 students will forfeit wins over Cincinnati St. Xavier, Lakewood, Akron Central-Hower and Warren Harding.

    The ineligible student did not participate in wins over Maple Heights and Washington, D.C., Coolidge.

    The forfeits will be reflected in the next OHSAA computer ratings on Tuesday.

    the saddest is that this is not an individual that had any impact on the outcomes of games... he was a distant reserve...

    If the ineligble kid didn't play, then St Ed's shouldn't have to forfeit. And this is from a guy who graduated from Austintown Fitch who will benefit big time from this.

    Mili, he did play, but only in 4 games, which is why they only have to forfeit 4, not all 6 games. He was a reserve who only played because St. Eds crushed opponents and he got mop-up time in those 4 games.

    edit: their record now stands at 2-4

    Well, that puts Austintown Fitch clearly at #1 in Division 1, Region 1, and should bump them up to #2 in the state. For now.

    He played in the four games they had to forfeit... not in the two he didn't.. Plays special teams... or defense if they're up by a million...

    I wasn't even born yet.

    Just asking b/c I played baseball with a guy from Austintown Fitch who graduated in 94 who ended up playing football at Bucknell I believe.

    His name was Wally Hurdley.

    Actually, Fitch had already overtaken Ed's for the top spot in DI Region I this past week. I've heard that if Ed's wins out, they can still make the playoffs. What the heck kind of incentive would it be to finish first in the region and have to faqce Ed's in the first round ? Their last 4 games are
    Massillon 3-3
    Iggy 5-1
    Moeller 5-1 and
    Benedictine 4-2. If they win out, they Could make the playoffs. They're a very good team and it would be a shame if they didn't make it. But hey, rules are rules.

    If playoffs are determined by polls rather than by computers, then I'd like to see St. Ed's make the playoffs if they do win out, because based on what I've seen I do think they were trying to pull anything...looks more like a simple administrative snafu. However, if computers determine the playoffs without human polls playing a role, then I don't see how a 4-loss team can make it.
