The other part to the story is PJ Hairston, who received numerous automobiles to rent through a UNC booster. I really hope this story blows up like Ohio State with Tressel to where the NCAA can't turn a blind eye to it.
Have you seen the letter the NCAA sent to Miami stating that if they didn't respond to their inquiry within so many days it would be taken as an admission of committing NCAA violations?
And then Memphis gets a Final Four stripped because Derrick Rose doesn't respond to a letter of inquiry from the NCAA. The NCAA is okay with Lance Thomas refusing to talk since he's no longer a student but D. Rose's "refusal" is seen as a tacit admittance of guilt.
But Duke skates again and again. Hell, the Maggette situation was as clear cut a case of impermissible benefits as you could ever imagine.
Haven't even gotten into the Wheels for Heels program yet.
Can you imagine if all this crap was going on at UK? Thameltoe would be living in Lexington, Goodman would be tweeting incessantly, Forde would be writing a book, and the NCAA would be working on nailing us to the wall. The silence is deafening.
