Says the guy from a university that recruited someone with a Welding Degree. The team forfeited a regular season game with us because they were banned from post season play. Great sportsmanship as well. smilewink

Ha, ha, Steve. That's about as relevant to today as vacated Final Fours from the '90s. I'm surprised you didn't come down on Bill earlier back at the beginning of the season for his criticism of Dambrot.

Re: Around the League

We've been over this a few times.

Bona not only owned up to the mistake of its two-year rogue VBK staff, it self-reported the issue mid-season once the appropriate parties became privy. It is not okay for an assistant to fudge a transcript to admit a kid who is a course or two short of his associate's degree. Again, self-reported by the university once that activity was uncovered internally.

Welding certificates pale in comparison to a long term pattern of playing fast and loose. I'm sure we'll get the boilerplate "Where's the proof?!? Camby only accepted money from an agent!" stuff in response, but everyone in the profession knows what John Calipari is. It isn't a coincidence that vacated wins/banners follow him everywhere. Then we have Travis Ford. Then slick D. Kellogg. Now FJK. Using intermediaries/middlemen/AAU runners to circumvent the rules simply provides plausible deniability. Talk to any long term administrator from this conference. They'll tell you off the record who institutionally turns the cheek to wheeling and dealing.

I didn't think it deserved a response.

Re: Around the League

Just set up an entire department, run a couple hundred athletes through it, sprinkle in some regular students, and ....voila! No problemo.

Re: Around the League

The welder thing shouldn't have been brought up.


But how was this a shady move? Other places have done this in the past with hiring specific coaches to get specific talent. There's a really good, fairly local to UMass, team that spits out a lot of top recruits. If you guys want UMass to be good (for the good of the conference), then making inroads with the local recruiting trail is a must. McCall isn't from the area, so he got someone on his staff who is and who knows the area.

He fired his whole staff because the first two seasons were pretty miserable and fell below the already not very good expectations. Making a new staff starting with a proven talent who can help bring along even more proven talent is a move that needed to happen.
