    Duke also did their own investigation yesterday and concluded everything is okay.Yeah right and the NCAA will say okay Coach K and Coach scumbag we agree with you.Prediction ;Duke might get a slap on the wrist and a scolding and bastards at Kentucky might get a slap on the wrist and told to be good boys.

    USC's Chimezie Metu will be eligible to play today against Utah, per release. Metu was linked to the FBI probe.

    Mark Emmert (NCAA Head ) has pretty much said too many violations to punish everyone so changing the rules a bit is needed.Well i have to say that is ********.Hammer everybody like yopu hammered Louisville.Once again NCAA already starts to show its inequality on enforcement and violations.Bunch hypocritcal asswipes.

    The story on how Duke cleared Carter is hilarious. the mom told Coach K they met the agent through a friend, went to dinner with him, but they disliked him so much they both walked out, her and her husband, never ate a bite, and therefore he didn't actually buy them a free meal. And the NCAA having no other evidence since they don't have anything from the FBI yet, cleared him and Duke is crowing about how clean they are.

    And of course they insist their son never knew about the dinner he was clean all along.

    And not one mention by Jay Bilas when telling this story, about exactly why the parents of a HS senior basketball star would agree to have dinner wtih a guy they knew was an agent.

    Good catch.Jay Bilas used to have balls and tell the truth.Now he realizes who signs his paycheck and doesn`t want to kill the golden goose.I wouldn`t be surprised if the NCAA hasn`t told the ESPN and other networks that carry college BBasketball to not speak harshly or dwell on too long about the scandals or you could lose our approval of your announcers.Kind of a muffling of opnions.Would not shock me one bit.

    I just think he played at Duke so he's defending a Duke player by not making the obvious question, why were they there at all?

    Yes he did play at Duke.Defending the old school by bellying up and not asking why.It also does not fit the ESPN narrative .Espn will not blast Duke,North Carolina or Kentucky.They will lead the rabble with their pitchforks and torches clammoring for the NCAA to destroy University of Louisville.Their talking heads gleefully rips Louisville during the recent mess and yet are fairly silent and much more low key about all the new info coming out.Bunch of hypocritical talking heads.

    The Miles Bridges one is funny too. His mom allegedly got 400 bucks and Bridges a 70 dollar meal. MSU investigated, found no evidence that was true but surprise they found out his family members had in fact met for a meal with a different agent, without Miles knowing of course, so he had to donate 40 bucks to charity to get reinstated.

    So they issued a statement saying he was completely cleared without ever mentioning the NCAA had in fact suspended him until he made that donation. So now we know his family met with another agent why would we believe them saying they didn't meet with Dawkins? They could be telling the truth but they already apparently met with an agent and didn't tell their son so why not 2 agents.

    NCAA is apparently investigating LSU and Will Wade now over questions on how he's recruiting at LSU.

    NCAA has a policy that any amount under 200 is allowable as long as the player pays it back by donating to a charity. You don't have to vacate games as long as you do that. That's why Bridges mom is insisting the 400 dollars in cash from ATM didn't happen, first it's very difficult to prove cash, second it's over teh 200 dollar threshold.

    My point is that in order to be reinstated you have to be ineligible.So therefore he was playing in games while ineligible..Will the NCAA follow the rules...i doubt it.You can`t be both.I expect nothing right to be done by Emmert and his band of bastards.

    They get around that by saying he's not ineligible until they declare him ineligible and in this case they didn't declare him retroactively ineligible because the amount was so small.

    Just to be clear, I don't believe for a minute that Bridges and his mom didn't get more.

    one of the points being claimed here is this documentation provided came from Dawkins and it's not reliable because he's using it in an expense report to justify getting repaid money he put out, or to explain expenses he may have spent money on something else and then just said gave 400 bucks to Miles Bridges mom when he really spent it at a strip club. But apparently the emails they got off the ASM computers don't in any way contradict what Dawkins' expense report says. That is in emails he talks about contacts with players and parents and coaches, that are also mentioned in the expense reports. So if he is in fact just making this up to cover money he's spending on something else, he's covering it up consistently.

    Based on what we know about Dawkins it certainly wouldn't surprise me if he's fudging some numbers, he was using an NBA playersmoney without his knowledge for example. But given what we know about him this throwing money around to impress potential clients is EXACTLY what everyone says in describing him
