The NCAA got this one right

The NCAA has absorbed loads of criticism the last few years for the amount of time it has taken to resolve eligibility issues involving high-profile athletes such as Renardo Sidney, Enes Kanter, Josh Selby and others.
This week, though, an organization known for dragging its feet is receiving some well-deserved praise for acting quickly in the matter of Thomas Robinson, the Kansas basketball player whose mother died on Friday.
The NCAA issued a statement Wednesday announcing that it had granted a number of waivers from its by-laws that will allow Kansas’ athletic department to pay for Lisa Robinson’s funeral expenses. The NCAA also granted permission for Kansas to fly its entire team to Washington D.C. for Thursday’s memorial service.
