    This is commonplace in college basketball.

    I love how this is legal in the eyes of the ncaa but players can’t have YouTube channels that make money

    Beat me to it. I was going to say that this is an old Kansas ploy.

    And then I was reminded of Larry Brown's tearful statement after winning the national championship with Danny and the juniors: "I'll never leave Kansas!"

    It's not like OSU basketball has a reputation to protect at this point.

    It's shady as heck, but how can you really prove anything or stop it?

    The guy being blatantly under-qualified compared to other applicants/peers in similar positions?

    It's just going to make kicking their ass over the next few years that much more enjoyable.

    Meh-- one of your big jobs is to recruit players, and if you can recruit the #2 player in the nation that certainly helps your qualifications.

    This should go directly to that other thread. People don’t want to pay kids but somehow they are getting paid already - and no one does anything about it.

    I agree with you, but that's such a grey area. A lawyer could start listing situations where someone took a chance on an under qualified candidate and the candidate succeeded.

    Agreed. How could the NCAA possibly be more corrupt than it already is?

    You mean letting coaches come and go for millions and millions while players have to go through the ringer to simply switch isn't fair?

    THIS. And once again we are reminded of the blatant hypocrisy that is the NCAA. o_O

    It's defensible. 26 years old, former player at SMU, a year of experience working for an established coach...I mean, it's obvious what they're doing but at least they can make a semi-plausible argument that he's qualified. At least he was working in the field and they didn't pull him out of an Arby's or something.
