the coaches and administrators knowingly  played with an ineligible player, they thought they wouldn't get caught because they have always gotten by with cheating. When the state took over the Earle school district 4 weeks ago the new superintendent starting looking into a player that was playing but not listed on ANY AAA forms or rosters. Kudos to him for doing the right thing. It is very sad for GBohannon and the other kids but hopefully a lesson will be learned that cheating doesn't pay off in the end.

I have heard Salem gets to play Foreman instead of Mineral Springs because Mineral Springs lost to Earle by 20, while Salem lost to Earle by 19. Therefor Salem gets to advance.

If thatís the case which I donít think it is.  Iím glad Salem got one heck of kicker.

Just think of all the offense the fans were going to see.... Foreman's RB was going to have a field day getting lots of possessions off of Earle's quick strike offense.... 45 to 50 points probably would have been needed to win that game for either team.

Why is it Marion's fault? It is really simple, play by the rules that all members schools in the Arkansas Activities Association agreed to.

How is it their fault Earle cheated?

It boggles my mind the way people think nowadays.  You get caught cheating/breaking the law and it's someone else's fault. Step up and be a man when you screw up don't blame others for your wrong doings.

I couldn't agree more.... It's amazing my perception of people that will admit their screw ups and the ones that won't. I think most people are like me in the sense that if someone owns up apologizes and you can tell its sincere will move on in our perception of someone.... Those people that lie and run until the bitter end or BLAME OTHERS just boggle my mind and makes me legitimately lose respect forever. A lot of respect can be gained back by sucking it up and having a little bit of humility when we mess up.

You took the words right out of my mouth.  Great post!

Hate this for all the Earle players who legitimately worked so hard and are innocent in all this.  It never pays to break the rules..the truth almost always reveals itself.  Shame on anyone who knowingly let this happen and condolences for all of those who did not know but are impacted by this nonetheless.

It is Salem because they can not go back to the beginning of the bracket. If they went back to the second round then they'd need to go back to the first...not going to happen

My opinion is that the AAA should let mineral springs and Salem play. If Earle has to forfeit all games, that means Salem gets a win. Ok, so doesn't that give Mineral Springs a win too?  And if this is the 2nd time in 5 years that Earle has done, what will AAA do to them? Nothing!!! It would cost them some gate money!!!

AAA has painted themselves into a corner. Didn't a few years ago the AAA let a girl from Conway play in the championship game when she had used up her eligibility?

If they went back to the first theyd have to go back to 1st game of conference season. Haha. 0-7 dont even make the playoffs.

AAA is a joke. There was a team in the 2A finals last year just as guilty as earle. Do what ever ya want football coaches. 99 of 100 times you wont get caught.

School choice and legitimate moves are different than not listing a kid on a roster cause you know he's not eligible(that's been the only reason I've seen given for them having to forfeit games)....

MT would have won the conference and got a 1st round bye.  Then, MT would have hosted Mineral in the 2nd round at home, instead of going on the road to MI.  Seems MT has a legit case as does Mineral.

My opinion-Foreman should get bye into finals. If you have a look back, you should have MS play Salem (especially since MS was only other playoff team impacted). Donít seem supported to me to go back 1 week? Again, I wouldnít have a look back but donít agree with how this was handled.

I think we can all agree this is a bad situation that pretty much affects everyone and makes Earle and AAA look bad. Bad for Earle considering they would probably still be undefeated even without the ineligible kid. Not totally sure how they came to the decision to advance Salem, but I know they sure are grateful for a second chance.

Went and dug up the thread....In that case player in question had used up her elgibilility because the 8 semester clock had run out(she played varsity basketball in Alaska in the 8th grade) and appeal was filed after the semifinals game (which she dropped 40 on #1 team in state), and AAA ruled that Conway could play on finals, but the player was now inelgible and had to sit.

Same year, Guy-Perkins girls got pulled out of either district or region tournament for same thing, having to forfeit the year.

Believe the Lamar case people have referenced on this thread...Kids we're ruled elgible, then AAA backtracked and ruled them inelgible, which caused Lamar to get the court system involved...

Always interesting to see the AAA history of flipping flopping how they handle stuff...

The only thing I can figure about why Salem is how easy it is. If you back track any further than that you would have to basically play all the playoffs again. So Salem was the easiest

Earle vs Foreman was going to be a really good game. I was looking forward to it.

I was driving almost 3 hours tomorrow to watch that game.

I don't agree with the Salem going to foreman next week....but I'm not sure I'd agree with foreman getting a pass to state finals either....kinda lose lose for the AAA here.

AAA won't cancel a game or give a bye to the finals. That would cost them $$

Not sure what the best fair way to fix this is.  I wouldn't agree with just giving Foreman a free pass, but I think Mineral Springs is getting hosed too.  I think I would have seen how soon Mineral Springs and Salem could be ready to play each other, then let the winner go to Foreman.  I also see where Marked Tree got hosed out of a home playoff game instead of having to go to #1 Mt. Ida. 

The solution may be that there's not a good solution.  Earle's errors have affected so many people.  Not a good situation.

Only way to really fix this error is to start involving legitimate fines to the schools....
