    There were photos going around on Twitter recently of Alabama football recruits and their sorority "hosts".
    Lol, his wife was "running a brothel." I'm sure that rumor was based in reality.

    I saw this played out in "He's got game" over 15 years ago.

    Why do folks act surprised?

    If you're going to cheat, why not just give the kids cash? Why involve a middle(wo)man who could eventually sell her story? Doesn't make sense.

    You're doubting the story?

    I haven't seen enough details to have an opinion one way or the other. Just saying, it would be a dumb thing to do and an even dumber reason to get caught.

    Can we do a remake of "Blue Chips" Louisville style? Call it "Red Chips"? College basketball, seedy women, and sex in restaurants. I smell an Oscar.

    I'm really surprised that college recruits have sex with girls and women who want them to go to their school, who knew?

    Nothing surprises me in college athletics anymore (especially in Morganhole) but living in WV that's the first I've heard that one.

    One thing is for sure, Louisville has the horniest athletic department in the NCAA.

    As I understood it (and they only mentioned it once at the time), Mrs RichRod was responsible for arranging the meetings between the recruits and co-eds for those purposes; it wasn't a brothel in the overt sense. But it was a badly kept secret that it was going on.

    At best, they knew this second-hand. But they were highly connected in the community and built a large social network during their time in Morgantown. They had no issue with the university (one got their Masters at WVU while there), so this isn't a poison pen allegation.

    Regardless, this is stuff from a decade ago. I brought it up to suggest the Louisville allegations aren't unique, and not to cast stones towards WVU.
    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    It is alarming to me that we got championship coaches in hot water all the time anymore.

    So ESPN had Matt Jones on today to talk about this scandal. Umm...that's not a particularly good choice if they were going for objective journalism.

    Did Jones say anything about Pitino giving the girls a "taste test"? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Re: Louisville Basketball Scandal---- are the cardinals about to be cooked?

    College's want to put their best foot forward when recruiting. Its why big programs use marquis games to bring in top level recruits. If you are an OSU coach, are you going to bring a prized recruit to Hawaii or the MSU or PSU night game? They also are going to have attractive women showing the guys around the campus. They aren't going to serve them dorm variety food, I would imagine they get a nice meal. Its all a part of the "sell" job. Now I would think that it is few and far between that a university is using an actual brothel to recruit players. If any of this is true, even one player, Pitano needs to be gone. But then again Williams has been cheating at UNC for years and keeps getting extensions.
