Looks like we might not see Tacko Fall this season.

Maybe this job posting for a SCIENCE teacher at Liberty Christian Prep is a reason why the NCAA is skeptical about his high school curriculum.

"MS/HS Science
Bachelor's degree required, a Science endorsement desired. Must be candidate for FACCS Certification. Must have a desire to share Christ in all things and teach science from a biblical worldview."

But regardless, I kind of feel bad for the kid. He just did as he was told without question. His guardian is likely the religious nut that road blocked his basketball career!

And here you go, pretty cut and dry case.

I'm not an investigative reporter but I'm thinking the Tacko Fall story might center around why he went to an NCAA uncertified high school.

My initial question on the Tacko Fall situation is why did a basketball import go to a NCAA uncertified school. Someone dropped the ball

The NCAA certifies high schools? Really?

 

I grew up in Jamaica, like a lot of the USF  soccer players, and even one football player a couple of years ago IIRC. Are you saying that the Jamaican High Schools they attended are NCAA certified?  C'Mon man, stop believing what you see on twitter as fact.

The AAC needs to be good, at everything. USF needs to be great, UCF needs to be great, if there  is any hope of not getting left behind. Anything that helps these two schools rise above and succeed is a great thing.

T Fall is getting screwed. He was a victim of human trafficking. He refused to be sold, so he was dumped. A family in Orlando offered to sponsor him, and have no strings attached. Read his letter to the NCAA, it will tear your heart out.

Foot, was he accepted into the engineering program at ucf? Heard that he was.

The reason I ask is kids who get into engineering are not dumb and can at leas handle math and science. That's not the type of kid who needs to go to a diploma factory to get one.

Yep, as a Freshman. The young man speaks 4 languages, had almost a perfect SAT  score. He is very bright IMO only. Quiet rumors are that after 1 semester, he has a  about a 3.8 GPA.
