UK Fans of the Day Want to Read a UK Basketball Legal Article

It is very rare for us to publish a law review article here on KSR. Law Review articles are written by law professors or law students and generally are the most boring pieces of writing that we produce in this wonderful country of ours. If you were on a Law Journal in Law School (and if so, why), you probably had to publish one (as a matter of fact, I wrote one during my Duke days here…feel free not to read unless you care about Free Will, Genetic Predispositions and Criminal Law…which you don’t.) So while I would normally not recommend such a diversion, this one is worth it. A UK fan who attends Vanderbilt Law School wrote an in-depth piece on the NCAA and Enes Kanter that I must say is very well done. Not only does it discuss in some detail the legal issues currently affecting the NCAA, but it provides some UK info that you will find interesting.

So sit back, relax and enjoy Zack Roth’s Enes Kanter note…it is a good read for the intellectual set (this does not mean you, Mr “Curse in the Comment Section” guy):

Enes Kanter and the NCAA

    I read it and it is actually pretty informative. Pissed off all over again by the way the NCAA treated Kanter. Thanks for posting it.

    Awesome. As somebody that will be pursuing a JD, I love hearing stories of the sports world and legal world colliding.

    I’d take the one on the right actually. The blonde looks way too fake. The one on the right looks like she’d drink a beer with you and talk sports. The one on the left looks like she’d complain and not shut up.

    Look for my upcoming article entitled “A Big White Dude in Denim: Legal Perspectives on the ‘Jorts’ Movement”

    Read some of this and NCAA bylaws vs. Governmental “law” seems to be the point of argument and contention. I did not read the whole argument but basically I’m sure it revealed the NCAA as flawed in trying to parallel it’s own bylaws within the constitutional rights of everyday citizens.

    Mainly, the NCAA can float its judgements through differing interpretations of its own bylaws, while disregarding any prior rulings. That in my mind is a difference. In Govermental “law”, weight and judgement can be based on precedent, those governors that previously argued and ruled on the “interpretation” and “intent” of the law.

    The difference I feel is the NCAA is not bound by any such precedents, and can rule loosely and flagrantly on whatever they feel is the interpretation du jour of their “by laws”. A very unfar and flawed system.

    Just an opinion, but I never got passed a journalism degree.

    Wow, these two girls are just gorgeous. I am old enough to be their father, and I don’t mean this in a sexual way, at all. I am paying a compliment. I hope they read this, and understand that.

    knowing what I do about you I assumed correctly where you would land in your treatment of the topic in your law review article; read C.S Lewis, maybe he can help you.

    Emmert can’t help but make the decisions he does in the NCAA – its in his genetic makeup.
