    Nerlens Noel. Uh Oh...

    Sounds like the NCAA is investigating a lot of things regarding Nerlens Noel.

    That article is a whole bunch of nothing.

    Re: Nerlens Noel. Uh Oh...

    Pretty much expected to happen after the Chris Driscoll article that had Will Blalock in it. IIRC it mentioned the NCAA considering some investigating.

    Seems like a lot of shady stuff around him. Anthony Bennett is probably happy this came out as Kentucky fans are now targeting Pete Thamel for their hatred.

    Re: Nerlens Noel. Uh Oh...

    lol, Doesn't surprise me regarding a Kentucky recruit and Calipari...

    Also the Driscoll ties to Providence. I look for them to be the new Baylor by fielding good teams year to year but not without raising controversy in their recruiting tactics.




    I WAS THERE!!!!!!

    Re: Nerlens Noel. Uh Oh...

    For a while (about 6 months ago or so) Noel had a graphite sketch of himself done by Clint Hedges as his twitter avatar. Hedges is a well-known artist, and Wildcat fan/ booster.

    Now if Hedges made the artwork, and posted it on the net, and Noel found it and made it his artwork - that seems like one thing. If he sent it to him, that seems like another. Most people pay for Hedges artwork.

    That is one thing that made me say "hmmm"

    There should just be an automatic investigation every time Calipari gets a top recruit.

    It's still up as the background on his twitter page but I don't see the issue because the pic is also posted on @clinthedges in his recent images and readily available for download.
