Scandals Aplenty on Tobacco Road !!

So what’s wrong with NC State? In the past ten days The Western Hemisphere has been ROCKED with Scandals involving Three of Tobacco Road’s Fabled Big Four Collegiate Sports Programs:

Wake Forest’s WakeyLeaks ….
UNCCH’s Latest NOA (yawn) … and
Duke’s Latest White Boy Goes Bonkers

…. But nary a whisper of scallywaggery from The Brickyard in West Raleigh ???   Alls quiet twixt Hillsborough Street and Western Blvd…….. for now.

WakeyLeaks has had its 15 minutes of ESPN super saturation. ACC Commissioner a/k/a “The Swoff” has given his traditional ACC Integrity Uber Alles speech which he gives for any/all ACC scandals not involving his Alma Mater.

Did you all see where Frank Beamer’s son admitted getting game plan info from Tommy The Weasel Elrod in 2014? He (Sean / Shane) is now an Asst Coach at Georgia. Georgia promptly fined him $25,000 for answering a phone call from Elrod while he was employed at VaTech ??? Sean never told Frank (nor did he tell Bobby Petrino or Rick Pitino) but apparently Georgia figured they could score some “We don’t cotton to such foolishness between the hedges” points by levying the fine on young Beamer. That makes no sense whatsoever but nothing new about that.

OK…. Which do we discuss next? UNCCH or Duke?

Lets go with Duke and Allen Grayson / Grayson Allen Whatever…Grayson Allen

There has been a permanent and persistent conversational drumbeat for several decades about the obvious fact that 96% of on-court playing time in Big Time College Basketball is allocated to YBMs (Young Black Men).  3.7% of the remaining 4% goes to kids from Eastern Europe, Australia and “places you can’t find without an advanced degree in world geography”.

The standard justification for this dramatic statistic is that YBMs are simply genetically engineered to be better in Basketball than other ethnicities. YBMs can (1) jump higher and (2) have no interest in staying in college more than a semester and a half. While THAT might be true, we now have more than sufficient proof of the real compelling reason….

Young Caucasian Americans (YCAs) are simply too emotionally unstable to withstand the rigors of Big Time College Basketball. This latest Proof Positive at The Krzyzewski Institute for Abnormal Caucasian Behavior pretty much seals the deal.

If your school actively recruits “white boys” it is not a matter of “if” but “when” they will “go bonkers”. Sure, recruiting an occasional “white kid” might appease a few Fat Cats who notice the otherwise non-diversity of your roster and ask “how come, coach?”; but a coach in a Power Five conference that recruits these “pale-skinned ticking time bombs” is going to regret it.  What good they might make to his team’s GPA average will be offset when they “lose it” on the court and starting crying and throwing towels and stuff .

God in His infinite wisdom created Division III and intramurals for “white boys”. The pressures of The Big Dance are simply too much for a Caucasian psyche.

Facts don’t lie…. Christian Laettner – Bobby Hurley – JJ Riddick – Quinn Snyder – Wojo – Danny Ferry – Chris Collins – Hellfire, go all the way back to Art “The Pest” Heyman – and now Allen Grayson / Grayson Allen Whatever.

 

 

FYI: Did you know there are more spelling for JJ’s last name than Eskimos have words for “snow”?  Redick – Riddick – Reddick – Ridick – etc etc.  Thats not counting the obscene ones.

For purposes of brevity, we won’t even get into Tyler Hansbrough – Dirty Dan Wells – John Roche – Marc Ivaroni – Tim Stoddard – John Ribock – Mark Mirken … etc etc etc.  All notorious… all Caucasian !!!!

The Duke Experiment in Abnormal Caucasian Behavior now has enough solid evidence to justify The NCCA banning “white boys” from playing Big Time College Basketball.  It is embarrassing enough that so many of’em can’t dunk and don’t have nearly enough tattoos; but the on-court temper tantrums can no longer be tolerated.

You all know what happened this week. Grayson Allen Grayson tripped YET ANOTHER opponent.  #3 for anyone counting… and A LOT of you are.  Victim #3 was another white kid ironically from Elon. Elon ??? Coach K was appalled and made him sit down on the bench…. where he promptly “went nutz”. “K” then lowered the boom suspending his serial miscreant for the rest of that half. YIKES!

Meanwhile two former Duke players, both named Jay – Jay Williams and Jay Bilas – blistered their former coach on national TV for his less than appropriate judication of the situation. ESPN analyst Seth Greenberg was REALLY going nuts about it, but who much cares what he thinks.

Postgame Coach K gave the standard “I’m Coach K (Saban, Bilichek, Popovich) speech about “it’s MY program and you all can go pound sand so there …..”

Overnight Mike was told what The Two Jays had said so he changed his mind and has now “suspended” his multi-tripping miscreant “indefinitely”.

Whatever Mike’s idea of indefinitely turns out to be…. it will be considerably less than the definition in the minds of everyone on Earth who “hates Duke because ….”. The Franklin Street Chapter of We Really Hate Duke has already defined “indefinitely” as “one day longer than when The Great Unpleasantness is resolved”. That would assure that Grayson Allen Grayson will never set foot in Cameron Indoor EVER again.

What do I think? Not that my opinion matters any more than Seth Greenberg’s but …. I’d probably go for a minimum of five ACC games…. Plus “if he ever does anything stoopid again he gets barred from ever playing competitive basketball again ANYWHERE EVER.”

I haven’t heard if The Swoff repeated his ACC Integrity Uber Alles speech about this Duke Mess but he probably did or he will at some point.

####

OK… now to The Latest NOA From NCAA to The University of The People. For those of you having a hard time keeping all these alphabet things straight. NOA = Notice Of Allegation. LOIC = Lack Of Institutional Control. CYA = Cover Your A**. ABC = Anybody But Carolina. TGU = The Great Unpleasantness.

The specifics of this latest NOA can be found by contacting any member of the ABC Lynch Mob. If you are not one you surely know one. Swing a cat in The Triangle and you’ll hit one. Alls I know is that it gets “us” imperceptibly closer to:

What I have hoped for all along….Dick Baddour

And that is …. “Call Me Dickie” Baddour and The Swoff and Ol Roy too going UNDER OATH in a Court of Law in front of a packed courtroom and an global audience of billions and melting into whimpering puddles of goo.

When a no-nonsense (and, hopefully, non-alumni of UNC Law) judge peers down at Messrs Baddour / Swofford / Williams and reminds them that “the penalty for perjury” is a minimum of “a long time in a hoosegow being the prom date for Big Enos

… You caMelting Nazisn imagine Baddour and Swofford melting like those Nazis at the end of that first Indiana Jones movie. Ol’ Roy won’t “get it” and will babble some unintelligible series of Royisms until two burly bailiffs frog march him out of the courtroom

… There will be a dozen or so other co-conspiring perps who will “go under oath” too including Julius (assuming he is in not in hiding in a non-extradition 3rd world hellhole) and Jan and Deb too.

 

“My buddy” Art will have a kiosk outside the courthouse peddling copies of his dozen or so coffee table books on Dean Smith: Man Or Messiah Or Both.

This is pretty much SURE to “go to court” now.   The downside of “it’s going to court” is, of course, it likely won’t happen during either Trump Administration taking us to 2024 minimum. UNC cadre of deep-pocketed Hedge Fund Fat Cats will keep their army of attorneys on retainer thereby stimulating their individual economies.

I fully intend to stick around to see it whenever. You know I do love CHAOS…. and “Hoots”. This will be both.

NOTE: I WILL have a special Christmas Column either tomorrow (Christmas) or shortly thereafter.

    After reading the comments about my old teammate Dan Wells, I remembered something long forgotten. In preseason practice of my freshman year, we were scrimmaging against the varsity and I took an elbow to the face from Dan. It broke my nose. I didn’t consider it a “dirty” play, just part of the rough and tumble of being a front court player of that era. I wore one of those masks in practice for a couple of days, but soon discarded it.
    I do recall that one of the commentaters at that time suggested that Dan form a tag team with ECU’s Jim Modlin and take on Hawk and Hansen out at Dorton Arena.

      Maybe Grayson needs to work on his defensive footwork against the dribble drive. Getting beat off the dribble by a wb Elon player often does not bode well for even a Duke player trying to make a splash in the NBA. Un-quick 6’5″ wb’s, even those who have some ups are a dime a dozen. Better learn to shoot from behind the arc consistently or else.

    Technically, you need to add an few new acronyms.
    The NCAA calls their latest blast an ANOA (Ammended Notice of Allegations). So it is really NOT a NOA. but an ANOA. They need to start Rev Levels or numerical designations so that one can stay abreast of them.
    To not disappoint, the HB2 madness fulfilled EVERY fantasy that a political junkie and a long time watcher of political drama could provide. The polls STILL show that about 70% of NC voters SUPPORT the Don’t Pee in the Wrong Place portion. That is primarily FEMALES….who then convince their mates to SUPPORT IT. Whether that is based on stats or whatever….is irrelevant. The Obummer administration and the LL DOJ opening locker rooms for the “sweet” lads that want to make a name for themselves has struck a raw nerve. Charlotte doing the “OPPS, we forgot to TOTALLY clean out our resolutions” and then the Gaystopo (Credit the Plott Hound) teams that went on Cable and took to Twitter to boast how they would “Take Over” the small towns and such and there would be more Charlotte Clone resolutions that the number of same day register/voters in Bladden County.
    As to Greyson Allen, you need to do some “looking” at JJ Redick. He done gone over to the “dark” side in regards to his body ink. One would think that he was a total BLM supporter and has a pin-up of Rev BB in a toga in his Clipper’s Locker. And he HAS followed their lead and has a sexy, lanky BLONDE CF wife.
    Speaking of Rev Bully. As the Hound says….when is ole Roy Cooper gonna put the Rev BB back in his bottle? Dr. Ada Fisher really called out the Rev BB. All she left out was that it was the naaCp and NOT the NCAAGP. Rev is NOT doing Roy any favors. Remember how “hurt” Chic-Fil-A was when the LBGTQ crowd had them in their sights?

      Even more technically, The NCAA enforcement staff/COI NOA is an AANOA (Amended amended Notice of Allegations).. Greg Sankey (COI Chair) was not satisfied with UNC’s response to the (weakened) NOA
      1. Go pound sand – you have no jurisdiction over academic matter and the student-athlete
      2. SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) probation documents/correspondence, Weinstein, Original NOA should be off the table
      3. Double Jeopardy

      AANOA: We don’t think so. SACS and UNC admitted fraud. Weinstein shows how. ONOA is back… and on steroids this time. You’re on Double Secret Probation until the COI hearing, where we’re going to kick you Deltas right out of…

      9/19/16 Response to Chancellor Folt:

      “Further, the institution correctly notes that Bylaws 19.02.1 and 19.8.3 permit reconsideration of a public infractions report when “relevant, material information that could not have been reasonably ascertained prior to the Committee on Infractions hearing” becomes available.”

      “The institution argues that, “there was nothing to prevent the enforcement staff from seeking
      and obtaining additional evidence of the contact that was clearly in front of them in 2010-2011 … “8
      The argument is without merit. First, under the NCAA cooperative principle, the enforcement staff
      relied on the institution in 2011 to provide relevant information within the institution’s control. It is now clear that the institution did not provide the enforcement staff with the entire body of pertinent information at that time, and the NCAA relied to its detriment on the thoroughness of the
      institution’s production.”

    This 3rd NOA basically came about because the COI would not approve the very “wrist slap style” sanctions that UNC and their legal legions were proposing.The new NOA once again turns back the timeline for resolution. The earliest we can have a conclusion to TGU is about the beginning of the ’17-’18 academic year. I predict there will be other legal tricks and maneuvers by the UNC minions to further push things back. The NCAA has to put up with the foolishness because they must follow their bylaws or any sanctions that they hand down to UNC will be overturned like Penn State. This is exactly what UNC hopes to do. They keep pushing back the timeline in hopes that the NCAA will mess up and violate their own bylaws allowing UNC to escape on a technicality. Everybody plus their aunt and uncle knows that UNC is guilty. The only way they avoid heavy sanctions is by tripping up the NCAA on their own policies.

      Not taking anything from your comment, DrVinny, because that is one element, albeit arguably a secondary one.

      the NCAA will charge what is easiest to prove and transcripts are very clear from 2002-2011. Those transcripts are like someone committing a crime on video and smiling and waving at the camera. The NCAA knows the truth is in the transcripts. Mary is correct.

        Oh, the Jenkins vs. NCAA challenges the “student-athlete” status which is the foundation of the NCAA’s existence. The TGU is firmly entangled in this mess as it appears (cough, cough) that the “students” are actually semi-pro athletes and should be compensated as such. Lots of documentation, thanks to Mr. Wainstein (I wonder if his offer to finish the investigation at half price still stands?) to support the semi-pro argument. At the same time, UNC-CH is part of that same system. So the NCAA and UNC-CH are “frienemies”. Strange, huh?

        Another way to express your point, DrVinny, it’s like UNC-CH got pulled by the Highway Patrol for going 115mph (wheels for heels) in a 55mph zone. Patrolman comes back to the car with a reduced ticket for 70 in a 55. UNC-CH tears up the ticket in the Patrolman’s face, then shows up in court and curses out the judge.

Which brings me to a question – you like audio books so much – have you ever thought about recording your own narration of your blogs so your readers can do the same?

      The “do podcasts” issue comes up from time to time. Always an option to consider… A FUN FACT: the woman who is “the voice of Siri” follows me on Twitter. Is THAT cool or what !!!

    Damn You BobLee…. I spewed coffee all over my keyboard 1/2 thru the “Young Caucasian Psyche” bit before I could get to “Dickie melting like a Nazi”. I had to wait til my keyboard dried out. It was worth it.

    I totally agree that TGU is now assured of AT LEAST another 5-6 years.

      I haven’t been accused of destroying keyboards in a while. Good to know I’ve still got the gift. 🙂
