Default Arizona unable to retire Jason Terry's jersey

The Arizona Daily Star reports:

There's been some renewed talk lately about why Jason Terry's jersey remains unretired at Arizona, thanks possibly to the Dallas Mavericks' NBA title and a recent post from Javier Morales.

But the fact is that it won't be retired anytime soon. Maybe never.

While Greg Byrne said he is "wide open" to the idea of retiring Terry's jersey, UA can't do so unless the Pac-10 and the NCAA sign off on the idea. The Pac-10 last considered the notion two years ago, and it was soundly defeated by the conference's presidents.

And in today's heated climate of NCAA sanctions - with the major issues at places such as USC and Ohio State -- it isn't likely that a sanction is likely to be reversed just because the financial debt has been repaid and a decade has passed.

Reversing a sanction such as Terry's jersey would set a precedent that nobody seems willing to set today.

The reason why the Pac-10 is involved is because the Pac-10 has its own enforcement and compliance staff, and worked with UA during the investigation found Terry took $11,500 in cash and benefits from agents while with the Wildcats.

Jet's a nice player, did nice things for Zona, but c'mon, those're some fairly low standards.

Don't understand why the decision's anyone but UA's though, much as I may think it may just be a publicity ploy type deal on Jet's recent title. Jet's time there was FAR before any of the stuff that led to their recent NCAA problems right?

Even then, who gives a shit? A school issues jersey numbers, not the NCAA. They think a # has been represented by a previous player that represents a university in the utmost, that's their decision.
