Just when you thought the NCAA had reached a new low...

    If this is a d_b my bad, but the NCAA would investigate someone if they picked up a penny off the ground, fer Christ's sake. The latest target? John Wooden.

    I knew you couldn't win 10 championships in 12 seasons and not cheat!

    Seriously, though, hasn't the statute of limitations expired?

    And yeah, Wooden's not exactly looking to get back into coaching. I don't think now is the time to investigate.

    I enjoy watching Dwyre hit home runs.

    If it's John Wooden, then it's in Dwyre's wheelhouse.

    A.) get around registering by using bugmenot.

    B.) It's not like this was a case of something that happened 40 years ago. This was like a year ago.
  9. About goddamn time.
    College basketball has needed a Truth Commission on that guy and his pornographer/bagman for 40 years.

    This has nothing to do with his coaching days. As I understand, they're claiming that he might have violated a rule NOW, as a 97 YEAR OLD MAN, because he had a conversation with a potential recruit who wanted to talk to him. Apparently Wooden still has some tenuous connection to the UCLA program that might make that contact improper in the NCAA's eyes. Ridiculously petty stuff.

    The NCAA should have done it thirty years ago.

    This thread is not for me. I never thought the NCAA had reached a new low.

    But I do believe it's OK to cheat if you are really successful at it and have a kindly twinkle in your eye.
