    John Wooden's UCLA tenure should be the biggest scandal in NCAA basketball history. But for some reason it is never talked about.

    Can you elaborate or give us a link or two? I've never heard too much about the seamier side of Wooden's Bruins.

    Wooden's success was bought and paid for under the table by a wealthy booster named Sam Gilbert.

    What, just because Sam Gilbert was flat out paying players while Wooden looked the other way, you think that's a scandal?

    Re: Karma - UCLA

    I think Mcdermott had a similar problem while at Iowa State. He did not know how to treat players if they were a star compared to the role players.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Karma - UCLA

    After you read about Wooden, you get really upset they name anything after him related to college basketball. The rumors have long been that his players would not leave early for the NBA because they would have to take a pay cut. Jerry Tarkanian was coaching in SoCal at the same time, and couldn't believe how much the NCAA would harass him and leave John Wooden alone.

    The NCAA believed that they couldn't afford to bite the hand that fed them.
