Here is information on the Isaiah Joseph eligibility situation for Central basketball in today's UL by Jim Fennell. A Central basketball fan can't feel good after reading this article:

Corbin said he believes participating in athletics "is much more than x's and o's and athletic development. It's about life lessons. As a former principal, I am an advocate for that."

However, he said he is forced to sometimes make hard decisions that can sometimes seem contrary to that belief, which explains in part why he hasn't made a quick ruling on the eligibility of Central basketball player Isaiah Joseph.

Joseph is in his fifth year at Central and has exhausted his eight semesters of athletic eligibility. Corbin said waivers are granted in some cases allowing a student-athlete an extra year of eligibility, but he does not have enough evidence yet to grant Joseph a waiver.

"There are not many exceptions for a fifth year of eligibility," Corbin said.

Corbin said he has was presented with the waiver request a week ago and has 14 days to rule on the case. He said he asked Central administrators Wednesday for more information about the case, in particular Joseph's academic record and more detail on why he needs another year of athletic eligibility.

Corbin said the waiver request should have been submitted well before the team started practicing and said there are inconsistencies in Central's claim that it was not aware Joseph was ineligible until the season was about to start. Joseph has not played a game for the Little Green.

"This should have been started in September," Corbin said. "There are things here that don't make sense to me."

Corbin said there are cases when student-athletes run into trouble and eventually straighten their lives out. While he applauds such turnarounds, he is not sure that alone warrants extra eligibility. He said such cases become more complicated when another student-athlete could be displaced from a team if a waiver is granted.

"These are the most agonizing cases to deal with," Corbin said.
