But when informed of Guy’s remarks, NCAA President Mark Emmert said that is not correct, and he wonders where Guy got the information.”What we know right now is nobody in the NCAA said anything of the sort,” Emmert said. “We don’t know what the source of that information was. … It’s certainly not the case that it’s a violation of NCAA rules.”Perhaps someone along the way misinterpreted that a wedding registry would violate NCAA rules prohibiting players from accepting cash or other impermissible benefits.”We allow people to have all the usual and accustomed gifts among family and friends at all holidays and weddings of the sort,” Emmert said. “There’s not a prohibition against that.”We’ve been reaching back out already to the university to try to find out what transpired there. That’s simply an inaccurate story.”Guy, a two-time first-team All-ACC selection and two-time third-team All-American, led the Cavaliers in scoring (15.6 points per game) this season. “That was crazy to me that that was illegal because that’s what a registry is for,” Guy said. “The NCAA said it was illegal so I’m not gonna argue with it right now. I’m gonna try to win a national championship right now. Then we’ll open that book.”Guy’s fiancee, Alexa Jenkins, had tweeted her frustration with the supposed rule Wednesday.

He is under contract at MLS side DC United until the end of the 2021 season but reports suggest his wife Coleen is homesick and has returned to Britain with their children.Reports of Derby’s interest in the former Manchester United star emerged shortly before the side, under new boss Phillip Cocu, opened their Championship campaign with a 2-1 victory at Huddersfield on Monday.“It’s literally only been a couple of days in the offing,” Derby owner Mel Morris told Talksport.“The starting point was that we understood he (Rooney) was keen to return to the UK and we decided to see if we could do something off the back of that.“It’s never done until it’s done and obviously we are very focused and keen to get this over the line.”Premier League side Burnley and second-tier West Brom have also reportedly declared an interest in Rooney, who is the record goalscorer for England and United.Rooney has engineered an upturn in DC United’s fortunes since he arrived from Everton and teammate Steve Birnbaum said he had had a major impact.“He’s changed everything, he’s changed the culture of the club,” Birnbaum told the Daily Telegraph.“The work ethic he puts in during practice and you guys see it in the games. We have this sort of confidence or swag going into games because of him.”Rooney gave short shrift to questions about his future last week.“Is that what was in the media? That my wife has got her own way?” he told AFP.“Those reports are a bit far-fetched. I’m concentrating on playing for DC United and trying to get them into the playoffs. I haven’t thought about anything beyond that.”Rooney has made no secret of his desire to move into coaching following contempories including Ryan Giggs, John Terry, Steven Gerrard and Phil Neville.“Coaching is something which I have thought about for a long time,” Rooney said.“I’m in the process now of going through my badges. It would be a shame for me to finish playing and just walk away from the game.“I have a desire to go into management and hopefully the right opportunity will come up.”0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Derby bound?
