    Internal drug policies are made to be broken.

    I'm to the point where if I see yahoo is doing the investigation, you can forget trying to deny it.

    Notably lacking in names, though -- is there more coming or is that it? Obviously the first thought is about Carmelo and the championship team. Also I'm not sure how much of an NCAA violation this is since the NCAA doesn't even require schools to have a drug-testing policy.

    All in all, far below Yahoo's standards for an investigative report, at least for now.

    They'll blame it all on Bernie Fine and be done with it.
     
  6. Wasn't there a similar story like 3 years ago that just completely failed to gain traction?

    There are no NCAA rules regarding drug testing requirements, so I doubt this will gain traction.

    Didn't read the original link, but the AD said all this was turned in years ago.

    And if its from what I heard years ago, it will involve some wacky tabacky (sp) and nothing hardcore.

    Yeah, I'm not seeing how this is a big story. This wasn't players failing NCAA drug tests and then the university trying to tamper with or hide the results. It's not like the NCAA would investigate a program if players broke the university's curfew rule. If a player tests positive for weed and the university decides it doesn't think that's such a huge deal, that's the university's prerogative.

    My take on it when it came across the wire last night. Just not much meat there.

    What would D1 college hoops look like if schools actually cared about players smoking weed? I see nothing of interest in this story.
