By "toilet paper on the shoe," I mean that it'll go away with no ill after-effects. 

 

I'm not gonna act like I'm not biased, but I don't feel any sort of vindication, other than it was pretty clear that this wasn't going to stick from an NCAA POV. In addition, I'm not mad at anyone. What I'm saying is that, ultimately (and I think I said this previously), it's not going to change the perception of people that graduated from the school for educational purposes, or the perception of the people who want to apply...and even if it did, it'd be a very small amount. If this was proven to happen at University X, and I was interviewing someone from there, I wouldn't think less of them than I had before the investigation. I'd throw some jokes at them, but really...that's it. 

 

Think that's all true.

What if this exact same situation happened to Duke?

 

Would you still feel it means nothing?

I feel it does. 

 

And yes. But of course I'd totally joke about it with people.

I just did. It's pretty crazy, but I think there was some good conversation here, if you weed through it. 

 

The first page is especially good.

No question, and a lot of intelligent conversation as well.

 

But there was a good amount of "rooting" for the Basketball program to suffer, which made chuckle seeing it back.

If MD gets more severe penalties than this from the FBI probe, Nickle may explode.

I can't even imagine. 

 

Hopefully they won't.

There's no doubt. Just kinda funny to think about in this context. But not really, because that would really suck. I honestly don't think there's anything there, or as the kids say today, it's a "nothing burger". But we'll see what happens.

What happened at UNC is considerably worse than paying kids under the table to play basketball.

I wouldn't say that, but we discussed this front and back and there just isn't anything that wouldn't be a rehashing. lol

 

But I don't think -any- of it is wrong, tbh. When we're getting into illegal activity, sure (and even THEN...), but not yet.
