Calipari makes Pitino look like Mother Teresa ....this is what we are up against and its nice to get some accountability to the behind the scenes shenanigans.

Wondering what the Nike EYBL exploration will bring. It has already been hinted that "a rival company" of Adidas was bidding on the 2019 Kid and on Tugs among other recruits. Nike has the lions share of the so-called p5 schools (approx 68%), so perhaps they also have the greater percentile of illicit funding, as they control the majority of "elite" schools?

https://watchstadium.com/news/nike-domi ... 2-14-2017/

The above article is from February 17, so it doesn't account for UL's recent (July) UA deal of 10yrs/$160Mill. Of course since Russell Athletics has only 1 major school in Georgia Tech, they have to "try harder".

Furthermore...we know that Arizona was full up with the return of Trier and Alkins for 2017. Could another Nike school have been the "Rival" bidder on ol' Tugs, perhaps one of the other late entries in his sweepstakes? The Jays are not a big enough player nationally or contractually to be sponsored in bidding wars by Nike.

well - isn't that convenient - Tugs wasn't aware - but the 100k went to his parents anyway

and it's not like he wasn't driving this

It's very apparent that some of you are butt hurt by Bowen's rejection of CU offer and obsessed with his demise.

Life goes on and there will be better recruits.

He wasn't the next Lebron James nor even the next Marcus Foster. He's an average player at best with not enough size and skills for the NBA. Move on.

I'm not butthurt that a recruit didn't pick Creighton, that happens more often than not. I'm butthurt that the marquee "name" programs are allowed to pay players and the NCAA doesn't do shit about it, even when they get caught.
