Maybe I’m mistaken, but none of those quotes are new, are they? I feel I’ve read those things a while back. Especially that whole if I let a kid go to UK, I’m not getting him back.

I still contend if UK was heavily involved in this, our name would be front and centered. Not lumped in with other Nike schools. JMO though.

It was from the trial this morning. Maybe discussed at some point but was presented today.

So Nike isn’t pushing kids to UK because they know they will lose control of them? That explains a lot, and is right in line with what a lot is us have thinking. Cal is losing out on top recruits because Nike is “pushing” them elsewhere. I can live with that.
It's there handlers. The person who collects the payoff is being told to Screw off by UK. This is exactly what weve all been saying and explains why we miss on the top 5 guys now.

I can't get over how funny that first quote is. "Nike schools pay too, in some form or fashion."

Is that form or fashion hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, discussed on federally obtained phone recordings? Because if not, maybe just take your punishment for being an idiot and stop trying to play the whatabout game.

Lol, I like how the OP started this thread with a negative sounding article, but then I click it and it makes it sound like we've got the cleanest program in the country.
What the hell are you talking about? There is nothing negative about it. UK was brought up in the trial today and that's what the exact headline is.

Stop reaching and trying to start trouble

No, pretty much everything you ever post has a negative spin to it. And if you're going to tell someone to "not start trouble" try not calling someone names or an idiot for having a different opinion than you (aka, not acting like the worst possible thing is happening 24/7) as you daily do on this board.

Also, my post (the one where you act oblivious as to what I'm talking about) will get multiple likes of people agreeing with me (cue comment about him not carrying about likes or making fun of me for mentioning them) because people see right through you and get sick of your attitude and terrible takes on here.

So the guy accused of facilitating recruits to certain colleges wouldn't let them go to UK. Sounds like OP should edit the title and maybe get some ice for that boner.

Ok, so give me the headline that would be acceptable to you and I will change it to whatever you would like it to be.

I agree, and if Cal has been refusing to play this game I think that’s great. I predict the NCAA does nothing to any of these schools and players involved.

Because first tweet is generalization .Saying "everyone cheats."

Second tweet then says "we don't want kids to go to Kentucky because we lose control."

Losing control by cash handling agents is a good thing...by his second quote then he is losing concrete information regarding to what UK is doing. Not to mention it's Nike that pays...they don't pay them to go to college but NBA marketing strategy, same for addidas.

Because in the first quote he's just rattling off the who's who of college basketball, without anything specific. "Everyone cheats in some form yada yada yada."

In the second quote he's saying he doesn't want to send recruits to Kentucky because he will lose control of the kid. In other words, Our program is attempting to isolate our kids from these shady agents and money men, and apparently doing a pretty good job of it. This makes us look like the choir boys of college basketball.

Where were you commenting in these threads I started???...I don't see you anywhere in any of these. What's the negative spin on these?
