What else are they planning to do?

Press releases? Op-eds in papers? Orgeron on some talk shows/ESPN? etc.

Everyone needs to spread this article and give it the most attention possible. It is the only way to get Fulton eligible this season.

Here's the link to dellengers tweet. Retweet and like it if you have twitter:

re: Sports Illustrated Article About Fulton
quote:

Documents detail the event on Feb. 2, 2017 at LSU’s Broussard Hall. The test administer, Jason Shoemake, noticed Fulton pouring the contents of a small bottle into the beaker the player was expected to fill with his own sample. When approached, Fulton poured the contents of the beaker into a urinal and began to fill the beaker with his own urine sample.

“I understand that my poor decision has a consequence, but because the urine was not actually used or submitted to the tester, I would like to appeal the decision of a two-year ban from competition,” Fulton wrote in the appeal.

So he passed the test with his own urine?

frick the NCAA. Seriously disgusting the way they are treating this kid. I don’t care who he plays for. This is wrong.

ETA I hope LSU has learned a lesson here. He should have been well informed what the NCAA was testing for. I’m sure it was mentioned to him at some point but a better system needs to be put in place.

If this were the "darling" home school of the SEC, he would have already been cleared.

Better yet, he would have never been suspended if he was needed on the team.

The NCAA is such a joke when it comes to who they make an example of.
The whole drug testing system is a joke.
It needs to be standardized and handled at the conference offices and all schools should be subject to the same standards and testing.

Now, UGA, Bama, LSU can all do their own thing. It's ridiculous.

I could used to Ross Dellenger having a bigger voice in the national media. He definitely has LSU's best interest in mind.

given his history, I still think he's a fricking idiot for continuing to smoke weed.

yes the punishment is definitely way too severe, but you don't find yourself in this position if not for your own poor decisions. I'd hope they reduce it but the NCAA isn't exactly known as an organization that applies common sense in unique circumstances, they usually operate in black and white.

I don't feel any sympathy for Fulton in this instance. An inexcusable lack of judgement took place here. In the end, the law is pretty cut & dry.

Though obviously I hope they can change the ruling because he ended up passing.

Good. Fulton is getting bent over backwards by the NC double a-holes.

I'm so conflicted in this story. But if they didn't use the tampered urine then he shouldn't have gotten that suspension. To quote one of my favorite TV shows. "Oil changes, oil changes for everybody!"

Does the language of the rule state that the test has to be submitted to be considered falsified? If not I don't see how he can get out of the punishment. He was caught in the act of falsifying the test after all.

I do hope I'm wrong though.

There is no language covering that. That's why there's an argument here, and room for the lawyers to work.

re: Sports Illustrated Article About Fulton
I agree that he was foolish to keep smoking weed and then try to cheat the system, but 2 years is ridiculous, especially considering shite players from other programs get away with on a regular basis. I think he makes a good case about the real sample getting submitted, though. It is the NCAA's job to make sure that the rules are being followed. They did in this case, but they are still punishing this player for "trying" to cheat the system.

Chill the fuch out. An 18 year old cheated on a drug test.


Aaron Hernandez killed someone at Florida.
Tim Williams said he failed more drug test then he could count at Bama.
Cam Robinson stole a gun and got busted with drugs and arrested.
Dashawn Hand got a DUI.
Jeffery Simmons beat the shite out of a girl.
Joe Mixon knocked a woman out.
Jonathan Taylor beat a woman and got shots at Georgia and Bama.

He should be punished, I agree. But taking away half of a players eligibility for a falsified drug test is ridiculous.

Fulton smoked pot and tried to give a fake piss test. Saying that punishment is deserving for that crime is moronic.

Hell Mark Ingram just got a 1/4 season suspension for failing a test in the NFL.

I don’t know how it works, but the two-year suspension had better not count as eligibility years. If he’s suspended two years, then he should at least have two additional years of eligibility afterward.
