Would you say no?

If it meant you had a way to prove yourself and you'd grab a contract for Chicago, and then win ROTY on your way to a huge life, would you???

Don't be so quick to Judge the kid.
SJ that's ridiculous.

Irregardless of what the NCAA is, it's still under the umbrella of academia, therefore it should be treated with the same respect. If you're not intelligent enough to pass you SAT test, then yes, you shouldn't be allowed to enter college and the NCAA etc.

If it were me, no. Why? Because at the end of the day, I have to look at myself in the mirror and ask myself what type of man I am. And if I had to cheat to get somewhere, then I've disrespected myself and anyone close to me.

Everything is about the easiest possible way, instead of actually attempting things and failing and learning from those failures.
