Are you kidding me? The NCAA has decided to go after the man that helped make the game relevant in the first place? Did Congress subpoena Babe Ruth today as well for their steroid hearings?
The problem the NCAA has with Wooden stems from the fact that Wooden had contact with Love before he committed to UCLA. The coach even had dinner with the family. Of course, since he's still a paid employee of UCLA, Wooden's visit with Love would seem to be entirely legal.
So I really don't think this inquiry is ever going to get anywhere, but the idea that it even exists just blows my mind.
I think if Babe Ruth were alive and there was evidence he had used steroids then, yeah, he should be called to testify before Congress. Age and importance to the sport shouldn't give you a free pass.
O.K. I'm confused. If those dinners were legal under NCAA rules, why the investigation?
I saw the title of this thread and I thought the NCAA was going after Wooden for all that Sam Gilbert stuff that went down when he was coaching there.
