Recieves 50 hrs community service. Novak still may dish out some form of punishment as well.

It probably was a withhold adjudication subject to Sheldon completing his community service and any other requirements so the charges probably have not yet been dropped.
GO HUSKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think Dan was too worried about the situation from the very start. His good friend is a lawyer and his father is a judge one county over.

Did he or did he NOT get another year of eligibility from NCAA?
How far into the doghouse is he with Novak?

I am not sure what the story is with the NCAA and his eligibility, as for Novak, he has a policy about people being suspended after an arrest. You are suspended until your case is resolved completely. I guess when you are a standout player in Novaks mind you dont apply to that rule though. I can remember several other players punished and suspended for lesser charges. We'll see. I think Joe is one of the most biased people ever.

How did you change your name Smetko? Or do you now have 2 names because you have 2 separate accounts?

Hey BobN, shitbag or whatever you go by. Dan was never put on suspension following his arrest. Novak's policy is that if arrested you are done til the case is over. He was never suspended which contradicts the policy. Rules should apply to all. That was my point.
Another thing. The judicial Board is double jeorpardy for students who get in trouble. Somehow the U can charge you seperatly from the state of IL. Why should you have to go before the judicial board if you have no charge against you. Seems unfair to me. Kinda like the band incident thing. Everyone at the practice that day had to do community service. Just for showing up for a comittment, yet they didnt hit anyone or do anything against the law or NIU Code.
The guy that runs NIU judicial office is an ******.

What does the suspension involve - full removal from the program until resolution? This happened after the season, so there were no games or practices to be suspended from, yes? So what was there to be suspended from (an honest question - I don't know).

Dan- The suspension from the team involves not being able to set foot in the stadium or being involved with the program. I know it was out of season, but ask Matt McGhGhy about having trouble off season and not being able to participate in summer workouts. It just hasnt worked the same for everyone. Brian Atkinson was arrested his freshman year and served suspension untio his charges were dropped as well. He wasnt a big namer then.

Wasn't McGhghy's situation that he was arrested twice, but never told anyone about the first arrest. The second arrest put him in some sort of legal trouble - this is from my not-so-perfect recollection, so correct me if it is wrong. And I also believe that Matt was suspended by NIU, but again could be wrong.

Atkinson was a prop 48 or partial qualifier, wasn't he? I don't recall Brian getting in any trouble, but it is possible that he was treated more harshly either because of a more serious accusation (I have no idea what he was in trouble for) or because being a non-qualifier probably puts on probation with the school to begin with. Those are guesses.

I do recall Billy Andrews and Ivory Bryant not lasting more than a couple years in DeKalb because of academic and legal issues, and they were each 800+ yard rushers.

McGhGhy was arrested the first time in the summer and sat out the whole summer program. The whole deal with Novaks policy is that if your arrested, whether for Minor Drinking, or murder, you are suspended until the case is resolved.
Atkinsons deal was during winter conditioning. It was a serious charge but the person later took their story.
