How can that be we looked for anything that could be a positive while ignoring all the signs. Lol

Not surprised.

Watford never had a vested interest in IU. They paid courtesy to us due to their previous connection, but once it was realized T was going to be a top recruit the family knew which schools were shopping and which were just recruiting. They didn’t have that luxury with Christian.

Wow, shouldn't be surprising but it still is surprising.  Who, in their right mind, picks LSU right now?  Gross.  

 

Brings me to the point that Ive made for years.  These players and their families specifically feel that their child deserves the money/perks that they get and NCAA be damned.  

 

The recruiting services help legitimize the marketplace for recruits and their value.

I’m not against kids and their families trying to get what they think they’re worth. I’m against the system that doesn’t give two shits about an even playing field or amateurism as long as they get their $$$. **** the NCAA.

College basketball (and football) isn’t amateurism, at semipro. Anyone who hasn’t realized this has been fooling themselves. It’s why I don’t care if Archie plays the game. We are in it for Les, so we are playing. Just not sure to what degree we are playing yet.

Yeah, no program is 'clean'.  Just varying degrees of dirty.
