College Basketball “is dirtier than a hobo’s underwear” … SURPRISE!

You gotta feel kinda sorry for The Kneeling Kaepernickers. I mean…

Remember JemeleLaPalooza? I know it was soooo “last week” but “Princess Cornrow” got herself an entire week of Above The Fold Fame. Folks who can’t spell ESPN knew “Jemele” for a whole week.  Most couldn’t spell Jemele either … but they knew about her.  THE New Face of ESPN.

Will The Kneeling Kaepernickers even get “a week”… with ANOTHER Sports Scandal Hitting The Headlines this AM. This one may be a Category -4 at least.

Jemele was more famous last week than “Harvey” – “Irma” – and “Maria”. Unless you are big fan of Puerto Rico you probably don’t even know “Maria”. 89% of Americans can only name a maximum of two hurricanes at any one time.

What was that hurricane that George Bush sent to wipe out New Orleans? Was it Katrina or was it “Nagin”? No, “Nagin” was the very very corrupt black Mayor of New Orleans. The one that actually got convicted and sent to prison. … Where was I?

###

NOTE: Remember “Ashley” my favorite waitress at Sunny’s Diner? This AM I did an “Ask Ashley”. I asked her if she had heard of three people … Jemele Hill – Mike Pence – Colin Kaepernick. I got total blank looks on #1 and #3. “Isn’t he Vice President” on #2. Ashley

I don’t know if “Ashley” is even her real name. No clue of her “politics” or if she has ever voted in her “I’m guessing mid-20s years”. I do know that a few months ago she was concerned about replacing the broken windshield of her Honda, and not having that $$$ in her budget. … and I know her wonderful smile ALWAYS brightens my day…

###

Today – Tuesday – Eeeevil Donald Trump decided this NFL Kerfluffle with The Kneeling Kaepernickers had gone on long enough. 48 hours was plenty of time for everyone who hated him with the heat of 1,000 suns last week… and all the weeks before… could hate him some more.

ASIDE:  Did ya hear the one about… Nancy Kerrigan claiming she has the copyright on “Take a knee”.  … Think about it…

So Donald, aided, no doubt, by Vlad The Commie and possibly Lucifer, Charlie Manson and whoever supplies Melania her stilletos, has concocted a MASSIVE SCANDAL in MAJOR COLLEGE BASKETBALL.

I have no idea HOW Donald was involved but I’m sure Team Jemele will be telling us very soon.

This one involves The FBI. Not those feckless stumblebums at The NCAA. … No word yet how “Damn Dan” Kane fits in this.

Yeah, I know. Another “Massive Scandal in Major College Basketball” is about as not-news-worthy as “North Korea launches another missile”.

North Korean missile launches are like “trees falling, but no one hears them, do they make a noise…”. If a North Korean missile doesn’t obliterate Guam … Who Cares.

How many Kneeling Kaepernickers can spell Guam… or know what Ocean it is in… assuming they know Guam is an island… and not the name of Rhianna’s Pomeranian.?

Soooo apparently a “bunch” of assistant coaches at some “notorious” Power Five schools have been “in cahoots” with “shoe reps” from Famous Sneaker Companies in bribing Junior Hi LeBron wanna-bees.

Here’s The Link…

Note: Don’t worry Mr. Kennel. Your “wonderful incredible new guy- “St Kevin” is not involved… so far. BUT his old mentor – Slick Rick – IS apparently.

It’s been what, a year, since Slick Rick Pitino was named in a MASSIVE SCANDAL. That likely qualifies him for a $500,000 bonus from the Louisville AD. Bobby Pitrino is jealous.

A College Basketball Scandal without Rick Pitino would be like a Gregg Popovich interview without him mentioning how much he HATES Donald Trump.  Neither would ever happen.

No Head Coaches have been named YET, just “disposable” assistants. All the named assistants happen to be AfAm so obviously this is PROFILING somehow. And you know… when it’s a disposable assistant…

The Head Coach puts on his Sgt Schultz helmet and grabs a few orphans to hide behind in a photo op. And his loyal fan monkeys “rally” to support him. Schultz

With both Arizona and Louisville apparently among the investigateees, you KNOW that Roy and Mike K have recruited every one of the 4-5-stars wunderkins involved. Not saying Roy and Mike were “out bid”… I’m just sayin’ ….

How long will THIS MESS hold Sports America breathless… at least 48 hours??

Trying to decide what 5-Star Fodder to ridicule is like trying to drink from a fire hose…

Before my “legal insider” alerted me to Today’s Scandal I was working on a pretty awesome piece comparing The Kneeling Kaepernickers to “Chinese infantry”.

Trust me… I’ll work it in somehow the next few days. One of my “best-evers”.

JUST POSTED:  Blondie compares This Mess to Showtime’s BILLIONS… with Slick Rick as “Bobby Axelrod… LINK

###

Blondie’s New Incredible Page should be 100% Ready To Go later today – Tuesday. She will debut it with a MONSTER COMMENTARY entitled “How a Curvy Radical  Muslim Hottie Brought Down The NFL”. Trust me… it’s a Must-Read. IT’S UP NOW… !.

AgentPierce’s current piece on Donald, Roger Goodell & The Kaepernickers is Vintage AP…. Pierce’s slim chance of ever getting hired at ESPN likely shot-to-hell now.

Later Buddies & Babes…

The NCAA will eventually have to go nuclear and ban hookers on campus.

I listened to 10 minutes o David Glenn today while driving to lunch. He posed a question to coaches he knows asking them what percent of the 350 NCAA head coaches/programs are involved with what just down with Pitino. The consensus among those responding to the informal poll ranged from 33%-50%. Which 33-50 is the question? Even the low end estimate of his question is awful.

I’m not the least bit worried about Ole Roy being involved. Carolina hasn’t landed a Blue Chip 5 star lottery pick worthy hyped High Schooler since Harrison Barnes. Now Coach K on the other hand Hmmmmmmmm?

Dribs and Drabs also…. Warrant is 59 pages long. 9 Colleges or Universities involved…only 3 or 4, so far, “outed”. 6 arrested. Two are now “Former” Adidas employees. Christian Dawkins was an ASM NBA agent. He had a scrape with the law when he used an NBA player’s CC to charge over $40,000 in UBER rides. Wonder what other services the Uber driver provided? UNC TGU ALERT….in the Warrant….the guy that squealed and wore the wire is identified as CW1 (Cooperating Witness #1). He is Mr. Marty “I got the BLING” Blazer of Greg Little. Chris Hawkins and Marvin Austin… Read more »

That’s my thinking too. I’m sympathetic to someone believing that they are due lots of $ to go make a University lots of $, but the means in which this reads sniffs of a lesser degree of human trafficking. And it’s financed directly from public companies. Not only Rev Barber, but where is the call to divest the pensions and endowments of these companies? Oh yeah, they stroke the largest checks to the universities, so I guess it is allowed. . I’m chuckling because McClatchy’s pretend-a-rag in Columbia took an extra day to connect the dots that their ex-assistant was… Read more »

Jan Boxill’s “Ethics Award”, which seems to be missing and is named for Jan needs to be dusted off and renamed.
My nominee is Marvin Austin. Sort of an “Outstanding Achievement Award for Restoration of Ethics in College Athletics”. It could be presented annually….but would Ms. Folt allow him back on campus to present it? Maybe the Rams Club will fund it?

The answer is out there…..it may or may not work but use the DIII model for all colleges….no athletic scholarships just academic scholarships. Then the schools control who they let in as students and they are somewhat more of a student athlete.
.
This will never happen but thought I would put it out there. William Peace University (formerly Peace College) vs EAST CAROLINA, Pirates vs Pacers!!!

My thoughts come in dribs and drabs on this. The latest. If certain coaches/schools begin stonewalling the FBI, their next step should be to share parts of the evidence with respect to money with the IRS. Once the IRS threatens tax evasion or taking away the players daddy’s/mama’s money, the S**T will really hit the fan and “she/he” will start singing like a bird, naming coaches, reps, agents, schools, trying to make a deal to avoid tax penalties. The Feds are in the drivers seat. . An interesting theory making the rounds is that the NCAA or someone inside the… Read more »

I’ll bet the “just do it” organization is better at covering their tracks and has better lawyers. This may be a great thing for the Franklin St. crowd re:TGU. More “see everyone does it” and “we’re not as bad as them”. Also the nitwits at NCAA will be tied in knots and more ineffective from this point forward. I always expected a maximum penalty of a girlie slap on the wrist but they may receive a letter of commendation, an apology and a mythical 1802 NCAA MBB championship banner now…… PS- I fully expect my Alma mater to be swept… Read more »

This is going to sound horrible but in reading the legal stuff, how is this not a 21st century version of slavery?
No way the families simply were getting their due. That money went through many sticky hands. And we all know what happens when that top talent fails to pan out. Mention in there of another shoe company outbidding, this isn’t stopping here.

Wasn’t Merl Code an old NFL’er?

Kevin Keatts went Sgt. Schultz today when asked about his tenure with Mr Pitino No surprise. Perhaps BK will set the record straight as usual. Probably not the best time to be a Pitino protege or an Adidas school. ECU is contracted with Adidas too. Based on the record I’m pretty confident the MBB or FB Pirates aren’t on the Adidas gravy train.

At this point I’m fairly certain that Keatts is following lawyers’ guidance. He may or may not offer any comments in the future. But all choices have consequences: if he doesn’t, his pressers will be very uncomfortable for a LONG time. . I agree that it’s a bad time to be either an Adidas school or a Pitino protégé. However, the developing consensus is that the objective of the illegal operation was to support attempts to outbid different shoe companies. Let’s see, which shoe companies are big enough that Adidas would struggle to outbid them? In my original post I… Read more »

Timely and good, BL I admit to having a fetish for Concretes and Blizzards. My favorite, after asking for the DQ Senior Discount, is to ask the server (preparer?) if they have ever heard of a guy from Omaha named Buffett. THAT is a hoot. Then I will utter wealthiest Lib’s (I think) name and see if “Warren Buffett” strikes a chord. Been doing that for several years. 30% YES would be my estimate. . As to “Kneeing…” I think that your Nancy K line is cool. I might have worked in a Monica takes to HER knees comment…. Anyway,… Read more »

Not NCAA, but NFL, listening to Villanueva’s “statement” today, it sounded like a hybrid of a Maoist self-criticism statement and a PW “I have been treated well, and thank citizens of the People’s Republic for their just treatment and restraint.”

This one was inevitable. AAU is an abbreviation for “corruption”. These “kids” have been for sale to the highest bidder for some time. It is nice to see it is FBI rather than NCAA. There may be actual results to this one no matter where it leads. Finding a way to make “sports” actually sports again, while likely impossible, would be a welcome change.

CNR will hopefully weigh in on this.

This is a MUCH bigger deal than any TGU or a NCAA investigation, or losing a banner or two, or POTUS Tweets. Money laundering & wire fraud = FELONY and could land those charged in prison for a long time. The feds usually don’t charge people unless they have them by the gonads.

Good stuff. The fickle public may turn their mercurial attention elsewhere in 48 hours, but something tells me the implicated schools won’t. We’re about to be schooled in the vast difference between an NCAA investigation and an FBI investigation. Trust me, there are people at every P5 school sweating right now. A few ill-informed fans may comfort themselves by saying “Wow, glad we’re not an Adidas partner” but coaches know it can happen anywhere. And I’ve a feeling this is going to get bigger when the canaries who are looking at hard time start to sing. . And just for… Read more »

You won’t have to worry about university administrations rooting out any corruption. The FBI will do it for them. Paying players, even under the table, is not illegal. Fake classes is not illegal. Changing grades or transcripts to maintain eligibility is not illegal. Questionable recruiting and admission practices is not illegal. Wire fraud and money laundering IS illegal.

Great point. Huge difference between NCAA allegations and FBI indictment, and between NCAA investigation resources and those of the FBI. Those differences will help inform smart administrators as they contemplate their response plans… . Just so tired of the denials, deflections, excuse-making that characterizes so much of society (not just in sports). Would love to see somebody stand up and say “Hey, we f’d up, here’s the punishment we’re accepting and the additional steps we’re taking to try and make sure this doesn’t happen again.” Probably a pipe dream. I suspect the University of L will get first opportunity.

Agreed. An old school “we messed up” would be refreshing but I won’t hold my breath. There’s still a possibility of a rigged outcome but removing the NCAA, fat cats, boosters, and other bad actors from the equation does improve the chances for some real and needed change. For some right now, a mere NCAA investigation would be a welcomed sight. I’m guessing there are going to be a lot of late nights in Indianapolis and AD offices from coast to coast. Lawyering up is not a bad idea.

Arizona?! Uh oh! That could mean Old Roy’s heir apparent, Sean Miller, could be involved. No matter. This is small fry compared to TGU.
