The Corey Lowe Situation: Update

Sources have told me the following about what happened to Corey:

After the team got back from OSU Corey talked to an agent (to most likely represent him in Europe) and, from what I've been told, went to an NCAA tournament game with said agent. Meeting with any agent while still playing is illegal per NCAA guidelines and Corey then in all technicality couldn't play another game as an amateur - Chambers was left without a choice - if he let Corey play and somehow higher ups found out about any meeting then we're the newest Binghamton in the America East. Chambers had to let Corey go based on what happened.

I'm assuming Corey didn't actually know that he couldn't meet with an agent. This means at the end of the day Corey unknowingly made a mistake and Chambers was left without any options.

Hopefully further details are revealed soon, but this certainly makes sense in the grand scheme of things.

Thanks Hot Dog for continue to investigate and report in on your blog. For BU fans that have followed Corey Lowe through the years, we want to know the truth. There was also a lot of misinterpretation out there on Coach Chamber's comments - leaving impression that Corey amongst some that Corey was caring more about himself than the team. It sounds like he simply screwed up - I understand him potentially making this mistake but this agent did him a real disservice but getting together with him during continued post-season play (and the agent probably knew better too). This is really unfortunate for us because Corey's presence the last 2 games I believe would have been a real difference maker. Both Morehead St. and VCU did lots of full court press and experienced guard play would have helped our turnovers situation. I dont' think we'd be in overtime at home, and I think we may have had a better shot at VCU. We still may have not had an answer for VCU's 6'11" Larry Sanders but another offensive weapon was sorely needed. Instead, while I was in Richmond, I had to watch VCU's Joey Rodriguez hit 3 after 3 - all the time wishing it was our Corey Lowe.

That scenario makes the most sense of all of the rumours out there. Good job Hot Dog.
Now get back working on getting the LAX team in Hotlettes of the Week. Oh, and don't forget the women's tennis team!

Unfortunately, Lowe would have to be a complete idiot not to know that talking to an agent would make him ineligible to play NCAA ball forever. Not only is it part of basic NCAA rules lessons given to every athlete, especially basketball players who are the most likely to have contact with agents about future play, but unless Lowe has never followed college ball in his life, he knows of previous instances where players were investigated for contact with agents, from OJ Mayo back to Marcus Camby. So I'm not buying that he didn't know talking to an agent and going to a tournament game with an agent, especially if the agent provided him with a free ticket - that's the #1 thing all athletes are taught, would make him ineligible. An unfortunate end to his career.

Talking to an agent is not a violation! Camby accepted gifts and Mayo accepted clothes, airline tickets. Since Lowe never went any where with the agent NO VIOLATION PEOPLE!!!

I didn't know that the kind of rule existed for them. I think that it is quite odd.
