Former UCF kicker Donald De La Haye who recently has been suspended because of his YouTube channel headed to his platform of choice to drop a diss track about the NCAA. The name of the track is called “Look at Me” and he pulls no punches:

As you can see, De La Haye gave it to the NCAA and their hypocrisy. It’s hard to disagree with him. De La Haye said earlier in the week in another video about the whole process of what went down when he was suspended. Here is some of what he said:

“Basically he (Scott Frost) sat me in his office and grilled me that whole time. So right off for real, I get no support from my head coaches in this whole process that I’m going through. I feel like it’s me against the NCAA and me against my coaches.”

Well now we know at least from De La Haye’s perspective that he go no support from the school at all. He was out on an island.

Head coach Scott Frost responded to De La Haye’s comment to the Orlando Sentinel:

“It bothers me a little, but I’ve only heard second hand what he’s said. I care about every one of our football players. … Donald made a choice not to be a part of that. I respect his decision and wish him the best, but any comment I make isn’t going to help the situation.”

Actually De La Haye didn’t make a choice whether to be on the team, he made a choice to battle the NCAA and he lost. Obviously Frost and the UCF brass had zero interest in having his back. As I had stated previously on this site, UCF was wrong not to back De La Haye. 

The young man literally lost his scholarship for having a popular You Tube channel that he created. Once again the NCAA is on the wrong side of an issue. De La Haye came up with a creative concept and made it popular. To say the NCAA isn’t running a racket falsely claiming amateurism at this point would be cognitive dissonant
