Dorial Green-Beckham should be eligible now says one writer Published: August 13, 2014

Someone outside of Soonerland is coming to the defense of Dorial Green-Beckham.

Well, not exactly the defense of him personally, but of logic and fairness.'s Gregg Doyel says that both OU and DGB haven't gotten a fair deal from Missouri and NCAA, respectively.

From Doyel's column:

"I know, I know. Green-Beckham is the wrong guy to protect, and Oklahoma (or any big-time football powerhouse) is the wrong school to promote, but that's the thing about arguments of logic and fairness: They don't play favorites. Logic and fairness don't apply simply to the athletes we want to like or the underdog schools we want to help.

"Logic and fairness apply to Green-Beckham, who was in fact run off by Missouri. And logic and fairness apply to Oklahoma, or any school trying to activate a player who has been run off by his previous school.

"And make no mistake, Green-Beckham was run off by his previous school."

Doyel's point: "You want to play? Your school won't let you? Another school will? You should be able to play right away."
