Re: “How Rose and U of M Ran out the Clock

It is starting to look like the fact that the NCAA said Memphis did not know and Memphis agreeing may not be enough.

I repeat. MEMPHIS and NCAA are in complete agreement. The NCAA does not think Memphis

And now the NCAA's reputation is at stake for may be slandering a student's reputation. And Memphis has decided to have the public know about the investigation's details.

Rose has $90M to go after the NCAA if they are wrong.

Re: “The Memphis/Calipari/Rose Brouhaha: Was It Inevitable?

Let's get focused here.

I think folks are writing articles making it sound bad cause Caoch Cal is invovled. I agree that the AD could have handled this better. But to think Cal was behind what has happened. Is it too hard to say "I was duped" by Rose and 3 of his high school team mates.

We know that the NCAA letter does not say Memphis not CAl nor anyone associated with the program of doing ANYTHING. SO why say that is the case??? There is not indication that CAl nor Memphis have run a dirty program. The NCAA just did 1 year year look into all of Memphis' programs!!!!!

We do know several things --
A. Rose's AAU coach told the NCAA about Rose and 3 PLAYERS cheating on SAT. 1 player took Rose's and another player's SAT.
B. Rose and 3 players had their grade transcripts changed so that the could get into college.
C. Rose went to Memphis and 2 other players went to Univerisity of Wisc.
D. Memphis spent times trying ot see if there truth to the SAT alligations. The oculd not find any.

That is what I understand.

SO for Cal to be involved he would need to get with 4 players and get them or someone to break into a Chicago School system computer and change everyone's grade. Cal would need to get with 3 players and convinve one player to talk the SAT for 2 other players. Cal would have to make sure the NCAA and Memphis were duped into letting Rose play.

When one looks at the facts, one wonders why reporters keep saying ugly things about Memphis and Cal eventhough the facts do not remotely support the accusations.
