The National College Athletics Association has made no secret to the fact that it’s no buddy of daily dream sports in yesteryear, but the suspension system of five University of Richmond’s baseball players for engaging in the contests was met with incredulity this week.
University of Richmond baseball celebrity Keenan Bartlett, ranked in the top 100 juniors in america, is one of five players suspended by the NCAA for playing ‘fantasy football.’
Included in this are a couple of associated with team’s top players: Keenan Bartlett, ranked among the top 100 juniors in the country; and Kurtis Brown, a first-team all-A-10 choice last period.
All five have been suspended since ahead of the team’s season-opener on February 17, and remain so, until the NCAA gets around to addressing their status.
Richmond had announced simply that the players were out due to ‘NCAA secondary violations’ but two separate sources told the Richmond Times-Dispatch this week the five players had been involved in ‘fantasy football,’ by which it’s assumed they mean DFS.
