what will happen this evening if Louisville v Syracuse happens to run over into the time slot for the game following?!
Interesting choice of words in retrospect considering the Boeheim incident after the game.
Ha ha. I read that article about LaMelo Ball. I don’t put any stock into what comes out of the mouths of the Ball clan, especially considering their reality show goings on. And no way that kid ever gets cleared to play.
But, if KU were actually entertaining the notion of lighting that powder keg, potential NCAA sanctions would be the least of my concerns. I’d solidly begin to question the sanity and the mental faculties of those in charge. At that point, I’d commit them all, clean the slate and rebuild from scratch.
Anyone ever seen Jaybate and Gassnola in the same room together?
In all seriousness, I’m not the most frequent or most prosaic (or poetic) or even the most knowledgeable poster on this board by a long shot, but I did send JB a direct message back in November once the season had begun but his commentary had not. I thought I’d check in to make sure he was okay. I never did get a response. I suppose he’d have no reason to reply to me necessarily, but like some others, I always appreciated his takes whether the were prescient (as in the case of the growing shoe scandal) or slightly wide of the mark. I hope he is doing okay wherever he may be.
Same too for @Red_Rooster.
This all just simply has to be over more than the “$2500” amount everyone is throwing around. We don’t know what information they have. But obviously there is something more.
I wish I had the links, but some of the stuff I’ve been reading about this case seem to indicate that the NCAA has smelled smoke around KU for quite a while now and SDS is the proverbial straw.
If I understood the articles properly, the NCAA has had it in for us for some time now and the amount, whether $2500 or something more, is irrelevant. It’s the fact they now have something tangible to pin on us. I get the sense lunch money would have been enough of a paper trail to lower the boom and make an example out of us.
I really wanted to believe we did things the right way, but I guess like some say “If you’re not cheating, you’re not trying”. There’s just too much money at stake to have a middling program. The pressure to win supersedes all else. The whole thing is disappointing on so many levels.
I do agree with @HighEliteMajor that if sanctions befall us, but not others who are clearly guilty, we should burn the whole thing down and start over.
Of coarse before KSU has to play them on the road in a few weeks. Man KSUs is just getting everything one could imagine in their corner (WV blew a 21 point lead in Methattan).
Don’t jump to conclusions just yet. They still have to play the game. No game is a “gimme”. Especially not this year.
If you had said NC State would only score 24 points in an entire game during the shot clock era I would have said you’re nuts. But there it is.
As much as KSU is in an enviable position right now they are very capable of soiling the bed, something I fully expect them to do. They’re so used to being a conference afterthought that I don’t think they know how to handle being in first place. The pressure will get to them. Wouldn’t be the first time teams have wilted down the stretch allowing us to retain our rightful spot as conference champs. KSU has been given an opportunity. Let’s see if they can capitalize or if they Bruce it away.
Looks like your connection to KU Buckets was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
