Allow me to vent a little bit and hopefully be talked back from the ledge. With the news on Miller's supposed announcement to Baylor, Pitino's acceptance of Tony Woods, and all the problems the program is having getting 5-star recruits, I think Louisville may need to join the rest of the NCAA and just go rogue.
Scott Drew is considered as dirty as they come. Kentucky is all but a minor league NBA team (salaries included). Agents are lauded for writing SI articles outlining their shady dealings and declaring that almost ALL amateur athletes are far from it.
If the rest of the college world is blatantly ignoring the speed limit, why are we puttering along in the far right lane 5 miles below the posted sign? Frankly I think we're playing the game backwards. Losing big in the public relations department (Woods, Sypher) and playing it straight in the recruiting game.
If recruiting has really become a teen-fawning, scratch my palm kinda world, we might as well hop in that pool and stop criticizing the majority of our fellow NCAA programs for peeing in it.
PS - I hate what college athletics is becoming.
