TEAMS: UAB Blazers

Back in December, we posted a story about Todd O'Brien, the former St. Joe's basketball player who has not been allowed to play at his new school, UAB.

According to ESPN's Andy Katz, O'Brien will not play this season.

O'Brien lost his last waiver appeal to play immediately at UAB after the NCAA sent an email to the Blazers late Wednesday night, when they were playing at Rice. O'Brien's last-ditch effort was snuffed.

O'Brien said he found out when he checked his email in Birmingham before going to bed late Wednesday.

"I don't know why this happened,'' O'Brien said Thursday afternoon. "I'm mad. It's so stupid. It's so petty.''

 

Something is wrong with this picture. Someone explain to me why the guy should not be allowed to play when coaches can walk away from contracts to go coach somewhere else?
