what do the Gov't the Ncaa and the uhsaa all have in common?

So I guess some NCAA reps went and visited a few church leagues, watched a game or two, then looked at each other and said "Yep, it's just not that organized at all. He can play now" Or something like that.

After watching the movie, Church Ball, the NCAA changes its mind. ;-)

Face it the kid told them on a form he had played in an organized league.
So then a bureaucrat denied the kids request.
Upon further investigation the NCAA saw that the kid should have said 'no' he didn't play in an organized league (sorry, church ball isn't organized, it is like pic up games).

Richfield, UT

Actually they reversed course when they realized it was a Baptist league and not a Mormon league!

Kudos' to the kid for being stand up guy and for helping out some friends in the Baptist league. He got what he deserved; a reversal of a silly decision.

Idaho Falls, ID

Mark Emmert is unbelievable.

Just out of curiosity, what is the rationale for the NCAA's rule? What kind of situations is that rule trying to prevent?
