if they rule that he has to sit out 3-6 games or whatever the number is, do the games he is sitting out now count?

Regular season games he's sitting out count. Exhibition games do not.

If exhibition games don't count what's the point of not playing him those games then?

Boy, that's a real Alice in Wonderland position the NCAA has us in, (and other schools in similar positions); they're silent on the accusation or transgression facts, the season goes on without the player, but you don't dare play him in pre-season exhibition games just in case. WHaaaaat??

If he isn't eligible for the first 3 games, he's also not eligible to play in an official exhibition game. It's a sanctioned event and he's not eligible to play. Bad things would have happened if he played.

You gotta wonder what's taking so long for the NCAA to come down with a ruling. I'm sure they will make the process as drawn out and painful as possible.

I believe so. When CV was being investigated he was held out of X number of games before the NCAA made a ruling. Their ruling was that he should be suspended for time already served and was then allowed to play.

Oh, I have no question but what you're absolutely correct in your answer; my Alice remarks were directed to the thought process that takes place at NCAA headquarters where these rules are created and implemented. There lies the true "Wonderland".

There are program implications if you play an ineligible player in an exhibition game or any game to that matter.

I think the reason why it takes the NCAA so long is because they don't have enough personnel to investigate all these cases in a timely fashion. With all the money this organization makes off of the schools they represent, you'd think they'd up their compliance staff who investigating student athlete eligibility.
