KU AD Jeff Long: Still no word on Silvio De Sousa's appeal

" Pretty straightforward: too much money involved. Want to find the source of greed, deception, and cheating? FOLLOW THE MONEY" -- David Brown

True words. And that trail will also lead to NCAA admin/staffers. With all that money floating around you can't convince me that some NCAA employees haven't dipped into that honey pot to influence their decisions. Evident by the wildly different outcomes for very similar situations.

What Lagerald Vick's absence could mean for Kansas basketball

Other than his occasional hot shooting night...we won't miss the one-dimensional Vick. He wouldn't rebound, play defense, take care of the ball, give the extra effort and apparently not much of a teammate.

We've still got enough talent to put up a strong fight in the conference and post season play!

Lagerald Vick taking 'leave of absence' from KU basketball team

Self's comments were hardly a clarion call of support for Vick. He's been a ghost of J.R. Giddens his whole career.

Freshman guard Ochai Agbaji emerging as an obvious leader for Kansas basketball

I'm not speaking to their incompetence. I'm talking about the possibility of illegal actions. With the millions of dollars of illicit money spent on obtaining players or eligibility...NCAA staffers are above suspicion? Fudge a report? Look the other way?

It wouldn't be the first time an enforcement agent for a business...disgruntled with all the money flying around to others...decided to dip into the honey pot for himself.

The nazi-like behavior of the NCAA is going to be their undoing. Mark my words...when a member or group of member schools fund and launch an investigation to look under the skirts of the employees of the NCAA...they're going to find a mountain of filth.

From the article you linked:

"Though most people associated with athletic departments at both the college and high school level hesitate to publicly criticize the NCAA for fear of retribution in the form of suspensions and further investigations, many coaches and administrators have privately expressed their frustration with the NCAA Eligibility Center...

Many have suggested there may be problems with the overarching attitude ...there was often little to no cooperation from NCAA Eligibility Center employees... it’s often difficult to establish communication with the eligibility center...there are bad people there, they are really bad people.”

Udoka Azubuike injury shifts focus even more to the status of KU sophomore Silvio De Sousa

The NCAA has more than just a turd floating in the punch bowl. Their imperious behavior of handling player eligibility issues is about to come home to roost in their own hen house.

How's that? As the saying goes, "follow the money". With the millions of dollars that has been permeating the recruiting/eligibility issues of high school athletes for years...it should come as no surprise to find NCAA staffers/investigators who have dipped into this money pit to influence their decisions in a sub rosa manner.

That's the sword of domocles hanging over the whole, rotten NCAA.

" Vick is inconsistent, but he's the only consistent 3 shooter we have" -- Layne

That's the enigma of KU's mystery man. Will he or won't he...does he doesn't he?

Quick recap: No. 5 Kansas suffers 77-60 loss to Iowa State for first Big 12 defeat

If Vick has any conscience he'll be the one losing the most sleep after this loss.

The only value he's demonstrated this season is the occasional game where he shoots lights out from downtown. That makes him extremely one dimensional...poor defender, poor rebounder, does little for the flow of the offense and is a turnover machine.

For the life of me I can't look at Vick's performance without thinking of J.R. Giddens.

Udoka Azubuike's teammates haven't given up on him as free throw shooter

I agree with you on Dok's free throw form and thought they would overhaul his form this last off season. It seemed to me that one of our posters offered the right solution...make him practice using only his right hand. That would force him to correct the flaw you mentioned.
