Eric Bedsoe, You're Next.
Apparently, Eric Bledsoe couldn't return to Lexington even if he wanted to next season. NOt that it matters, at thispoint he is a lottery pick and will likely be selected to play basketball for millions of dollars anyway.
Let's go over a few of the Specifics....
The investigation is centered on Bledsoe's high school transcripts, payments made for an apartment shared by him and his mother, and whether his high school coach in Birmingham, Ala., demanded money from schools recruiting him, according to the story on the newspaper's website.
Waaaaait a minute.....
On May 28, the Memphis Commercial Appeal obtained the letter through the Freedom of Information Act and released it. Although the player's name was redacted due to privacy laws, process of elimination and sources revealed the player as Derrick Rose. The next day in a separate investigation, James Sullivan, Inspector General of the Chicago Public Schools district's Board of Education, released a report of his investigation stating that four student-athletes of a CPS school had one-month grade boosts to alter their college transcripts. The Chicago Sun-Times revealed the school as Simeon Career Academy and that three of the four were Rose and his former teammates Kevin Johnson and Tim Flowers, prominent members of the back-to-back championship teams. The newspaper claimed that Rose's grade was changed from a D to a C. Another part of the report stated that "high school staff lost the original permanent records for three of the above mentioned students athletes" (including the unknown four). Sullivan started the investigation because "none of the grade changes were supported by any documentation”. He also failed to find a suspect as "at least seven people at Simeon had the ability to access student grades and records". Illinois High School Association (IHSA) executive director Marty Hickman reacted by saying, "It is obvious that this is worth taking a look into". Robert Smith, who coached the Wolverines from 2004 to 2007, denied any wrongdoing. District spokeswoman Monique Bond said the students involved probably didn't know about the grade change.
i knew this sort of thing sounded famaliar. John Calipari involving himself in the recruitment of a kid who might OR MIGHT NOT qualify and letting him play anyway.
So, while we wait for the NCAA to penalize Calipari ( i"m not holding my breath, by any means ) for his involvement with Derrick Rose and Robert Dozier at Memphis. We are now awaiting on the on going investigations on John Wall, and Demarcus Cousins.... Now we have a NEW channel to watch, Call it KRSN ( Kentucky Recruitment Scandal Network ) 4, Eric Bledsoe and his falsified grades in high school.
As always, debate, converse.....
