It has been over four decades since I entered college at UCLA. I really enjoyed being a student/ athlete but I would be lying if I said there were not times when it was very difficult. Trying to balance school, practice, travel, games and yes socializing was not easy. Fast forward to present day and as the father of a soon to be student/ athlete, things have not gotten any easier.

On Feb. 15 former University of Notre Dame football player John Askin lodged his complaints in his state of residence, Kentucky. Named as defendants are the NCAA and Notre Dame. In the composition of the allegations of constructive fraud, fraudulent concealment and negligence on the parts of the NCAA and Notre Dame, Askin claims the actions/inactions of the defendants led to the symptoms of neurological damage he now suffers.
Askin’s allegations include claims that he was illegally and improperly administered controlled substances for pain management during his playing time for the Fightin’ Irish. Not only does he assert they were illegally administering medications, but they were even using a medication approved for veterinary use on humans.

Cases had been argued, seeking remand;
The sports leagues were busy, all driven by greed,
In hopes that their coffers would greatly exceed;
