The NCAA closes the book on Bledsoe

The NCAA will take no further action against Eric Bledsoe or the University of Kentucky regarding the Case of the Changed Transcript (that sounds like a Harry Potter movie).

Its not like they really had a choice.

While an independent law firm's investigation into Bledsoe's grade in Algebra III turned up information that made them believe the grade change was not credible, the Birmingham School District decided against making a change to his grade. And, in reality, they probably made the right decision. Is any good going to come from the change? The fact that this story has been making headlines for four months is enough of an indictment on the school district, and the only punishment that could have happened was Kentucky had their season vacated. Who wanted to see that happen again? (Other than the Calipari haters, of course.)

Let's move on.

Only three weeks until we can start talking about basketball again.

And while we are on this topic, go read this Dana O'Neil piece on the man that headed the investigation into Bledsoe. Seriously. Click here. Now. You won't regret it.
