Sorry for the delay recently. I was sick and have been traveling.
I alluded to it in Saturday's Fresno State preview, but it is apparently school policy to suspend Pope following his arrest. There is a social misconduct committee that has yet to meet on the issue. The commitee normally meets within 72 hours of any legal infraction involving a student athlete but since Pope has two pending court dates (Jan 8 in Penn. for the DUI and Jan. 14 in Las Cruces for the court injunction) the committee has yet to meet.
Dr. Boston said the NCAA has yet to respond regarding potential penalties should Pope play, but now that seems to be irrelevant since Pope could possibly be suspended for his situation in Penn. Boston said Here is a quote from Boston "A lot of things are at play that could impact his situation so I don't see a lot happening until after the 14th. Even if we allowed him to play, there could be a suspension with his other scenerio."
I asked Dr. Boston is Pope was enrolled for the Spring semester and he said he didn't know that as of Friday.
