    End of story.
    This worked in the Corey Magette case because they are Duke. It didn't work in the Camby or Rose cases. They were not Duke.

    We'll never know, but I like that UofL is the only one to ever get their championship rescinded.

    Hard to say. Louisville set the precedent on that years later. Final fours have been voided for years.

    I should have been more clear. The unethical stuff wasn't connected to Pres. Trump, but rather some things he did to Ms. Daniels. At least according to her.

    It is very likely that if the alleged "cheating" is real, getting elite 8s every year REQUIRES being in the company of cheaters.

    I mean, Nike is the accused "cheater" and we are a "Nike" school. Further, if everyone is "cheating" then no one is.

    The NCAA definition of "amature" is an antiquated fantasy.

    Derrick Rose and all that...

    Clemson is a Nike school too, and they were just as in on him as we were.

    I don’t think this is a school issue as much as a Nike issue (in terms of wrongdoing). It doesn’t seem like Duke necessarily did anything wrong here.

    I am not discounting this at all, because it’s essentially what adidas was doing.

    But it would be college basketball-wide. And would go far beyond UK.

    I also want to cling to my naïveté and think there’s a connection between the dip in our recruiting the last few years and the rise of this stuff coming to light.

    I know UK wouldn't be singled out, but it would still be bad for us.

    Like you, I tell myself that we haven't gotten some of the best of the best for a good reason.
