That's what it's all about, deceiving the academic world to play a game. True definition of student-athlete

I believe in the WCLL a graduate student is ineligible if he played at on an NCAA or NCLL team as an undergraduate. Can anyone confirm? I think it is kinda bizarre that each league can have their own eligibility requirements...you would think that is the MCLA's domain.

The graduate student eligibility rule in the WCLL for the 2008 season that applies to this discussion is;"
graduate students may play for only one year, if they are eligible under ‘a’ and ‘c’ above and earned their undergraduate degree at a non-NCAA school."
While you might think it is bizarre that the conferences can make their own rules regarding eligibility, that is the way it is, the conferences can be more restrictive but not less restrictive than the MCLA rules.

Thanks Craig! I didn't mean bizarre in a bad way.

I heard there was a grad student at FSU that played at Lehigh. What an addition that would be to their team. This could really make things interesting for some teams.

I have seen far more D1 undergrad transfers make big impacts on MCLA teams over the years than grad students - Steve Austin at BYU probably being the most notable so far.

With the PhD wrapping up it might be time to go for that law degree...is there a Masters division in the MCLA?

Since we are on this topic and this is the first year that any graduate students have been allowed to play in the MCLA, how many graduate students participated on MCLA teams in 2008 and did any of them make a significant impact this season?

didn't that mike dude play for UCLA or was that just in the fall? I know he was Architecture guy so I am sure it was hard for him to make it to a lot of stuff.

Graduate students have always been allowed in the MCLA. The change this year enabled them to play for a school where they did not receive their undergrad degree (assuming eligibility remaining and 12 credit hours).

believe WCLL requires not only 12 credits in previous semester, but also a total of 24 total from previous 2 semesters with an adequate gpa of course. however, i am not sure if these same rules apply to graduates who have been out of school for a semester or more.

It seems like it is heading in the right direction. If the MCLA is pushing so hard to be known as virtual varsity and not as bush league club lacrosse then why aren't the NCAA rules followed to the T?

Because most teams, conferences and the MCLA Board do not have the resources necessary to provide the amount of oversight necessary to follow the rules exactly.
