The NCAA granting Josh Smith immediate eligibility was surprising, but what still remains a mystery is what exactly Georgetown included in that waiver application that convinced the NCAA to issue what is basically a precedent-setting decision. The only possible way for me to fathom why Georgetown was able to outwit, outsmart and outlast the NCAA into granting Josh Smith's waiver was that it must have been written in Haiku. Below are some variations of what that waiver may have said:
Florida Gulf CoastGreg Whittington ACLGive us a damn break
Please clear Josh Smith nowWe have nothing to live forWe need booze and chicks
Hoyas need Josh SmithJesuit Pope for the winAnswer our prayers please
Georgetown needs big manNCAA needs Big EastRest of Big East stinks
Dear NCAAGot nothing to write aboutFree Josh Smith, Love Blog
NCAA nowThat you have freed Josh Smith, pleaseDocument your lunch
