Death penalty for Nate Miles? FFS - he never stepped on the floor officially for the university!

He works for the "The Daily" which is an iPad only news source from Rupert Murdoch. Newscorp employed; Clearly a man of integrity.

Just came across it searching for stories on Drummond. Interesting dialogue between an uninformed, sanctimonious columnist and a clueless NCAA rep.

I dunno - I'm blasting him for being a hypocrite when it comes to other schools. His def of a booster/agent would get almost every school in a BCS conference in trouble. I'm not sure why he's still dwelling on Nate Miles, when there have been, in the last few months, more egregious NCAA rules broken by big name schools (Tenn, Miami, USC, Oregon)

Is the objection that because of their APR sanctions, UConn shouldn't have been recruiting because they were at their scholarship limit? Or is it because they are asking someone to give up their scholarship for another player?

If it is the former, then my point would be that Drummond was a 2012 recruit and seemingly only recently (between now and his WMA announcement) decided to re-reclassify.

If it is the latter - doesn't this happen on nearly every competitive campus each year? Coaches encourage players to "transfer" because they don't see as bright of a future as they may see in an incoming player or recruit. A recent example being that there was no outrage when JCMD transferred to Hofstra, despite earning himself respectable amounts of playing time on a National Championship team because he was not the right fit for the Huskies, yet because Drummond is a blue chip - there is outcry. The main difference I see is just the speed in which this has transpired - and while regretful, it's not unprecedented at all.

Yeah.

Ah, I'm Musiktheorist. Maybe we should start pressing him on Oregon and how that story fell off the map?

He can keep hanging his hat on his Tigers vacated 2008 national runner up season while we sit on our 3 National Championships in the last 12 years :cool:

Now we are posting every tool that even tweets about us - Great!!

Hey I have an idea why does'nt someone from this board tweet something good about UCONN and we can start a new thread about that?

Since when does every comment from every person on earth get posted? This is getting stupid.
