Fulton’s attorney on AFR (notes)
- conference call with the committee lasted an hour, deliberated about an hour, gave no reason that the suspension was upheld
-based on line of questioning, he believes the decision was made before the conference call, and reopening the case was purely procedural
- there are 3 options about what comes next
- extreme legislative relief filed by LSU through the conference (LOL, good luck with this one)
- filing for a reconsideration of the bylaw which was broken (different than appeal apparently)
- file a lawsuit against the NCAA and seek injunctive relief (he said this is a last resort and they really don’t want to do this, mostly due to the fact that it puts the school in a very awkward position)
- doesn’t think that Fulton can use a redshirt year, so he would have one year of eligibility in 2019 if everything stands as is.

Why would a lawsuit put the school in a "very awkward position"?

I just don’t get what LSU ever did to deserve second class citizen treatment like this

This is shameful

Because it puts them in an adverse position against the organization that governs all of their sports.

Seems like we're already in an adverse position with them.

It’s not what we did, it’s what we can’t do because of the incapabilities of our administration. Talking to you Joe.

NCAA is wrong for not letting the kid use a redshirt while on suspension. That is flat out ruining a young mans future for a mistake made while he was a teenager.

That doesn’t accomplish anything substantive, the objective with the recourse possibilities is to get him on the field period point blank

Can this be true? If this is the case, they are out to hurt this kid and LSU. What a sh!t show when they give so many passes to "other" SEC teams and players.

Such an absurd penalty for a guy who didn’t even test positive for the test. I mean seriously.

The brief part that I was listening to he was saying that this case falls under three separate bylaws. And the NCAA does not have any wording to separate the three so they can choose at will which it falls under. They apparently got Fulton for tampering with a test which is 2 years. The other two are only 1 year punishments.

I had a feeling this was the case given the fact they made their decision immediately after the meeting ended after we thought we wouldn't know anything until that evening or possibly Friday morning.

Yeah, but he tried to cheat on the test, which most would agree is worse than a mere failed test.

is 2 years too harsh given the circumstances? Maybe...Probably. But I know one way this could have all been avoided to begin with, and it has nothing to do with the NCAA or its bylaws and penalties.

It's rightfully difficult for some, myself included, to have a ton of sympathy for a person that attempted to cheat the system.

Maybe because if the lawsuit is lost, LSU would have to forfeit games hes 0layed in? Or something along those lines?

He should have 2 years left. Unless he goes for the draft after his junior season.

He didn’t redshirt his freshman year. He played, lost 2 years, and will have 1 year left.

It's a shame that this young man has to go through all the crap that he's dealing with, but at the end of the day, he did it to himself.

Oh well, hopefully it's one of life's lessons that he won't forget.
