How would Smart not be clear but Zion is clear?
How is the Arizona coach still coaching but Wade isn't?

Both of these situations are equivalent

Everyone defending the administration, ask yourself why.
The only other variable is this incompetent administration. How anyone can deny this is astounding.

Because duke took it to the ncaa when the tape was released. Smart happened and we are investigating it with the ncaa now.

And was he withheld while the NCAA looked into it?

LSU admins: "we need to talk to Will and have him tell us he didnt do it"

Will Wade in October: "I did not have any transactions with Dawkins"

LSU admins"yea, well, we need something again right mewowwwwwwww"

When Bill Self's text messages to Adidas were revealed in court last fall, Kansas circled the wagons and publicly supported their "HOF coach". He is still coaching.

re: How would Smart not be clear but Zion is clear?
These situations are no where near equivalent. Wade’s and Smart’s implication are nebulous at the very best. Zion, Az and Duke are all directly implicate without question. NCAA may have cleared Zion earlier in the year. Doubt they had his dad on tape then.
The media and administration hypocrisy here is totally mind blowing.

Media hypocrisy is standard fare these days. Not surprising at all. Most media today simply tries to shape public opinion regardless of whether it is true or not. Facts don't matter much to people anymore sadly.

You talking about this:

quote:

Krzyzewski again reiterated that he’s comfortable with the information that Williamson and his family have provided and revealed that Williamson, along with fellow freshmen R.J. Barrett and Cam Reddish, went through a strict vetting process through the NCAA Eligibility Center that Krzyzewski said 10 to 20 recruits are subjected to each year.

Todd Mesibov, Duke’s senior associate athletics director for compliance, guides each family through providing whatever information the NCAA requests in that process.

“(They) did everything they could to cooperate with the NCAA, including personal records, which I thought was, to be quite frank with you, pretty invasive,” Krzyzewski said. “You have to prove your innocence, and guilt is assumed. Our guys, and not just Zion, our guys went through that process, so we feel confident.”


That happened before any of this wire tap info came out. They do that process with alot of their recruits on a routine basis. So no, they didn't bring him to the NCAA after the wire tap was revealed.

I don't know what that means

I'm saying Zion, like many other Duke recruits, went through a normal NCAA vetting process. It didn't have anything to do with the wire tap because it was before that information was released.

So the other poster is wrong. Zion has not been cleared by the NCAA regarding the wire tap information.

Zion is mentioned second hand by a university he didn’t end up at

Does Javonte Smart go to Duke? Does LSU have a head basketball coach with a fricked up Polish sounding last name that starts with a K?

What's your point. Zion's dad is on tape requesting money, housing,job, etc. for his son to go to that school. You think he decided he didn't want all of those things suddenly?

It's all speculation, exactly like the Smart situation

I'll say it: Duke should withdraw from the NCAA tournament.

It's likely that Williamson, Barrett and Reddish all received impermissible benefits, so they should all be suspended until after the trial in April.

Same goes for all the other involved parties. We can just have a nice, small tournament this year.

(See how ridiculous all of this is yet?*)

*Not you WaWa. You clearly get it.

I'm being rhetorical.

No I’m just saying the NCAA didn’t ask Zion anything about the wire tap because it wasn’t even public knowledge at the time.

Coach K was just saying they looked into his background previously and didn’t find anything so that’s good enough for me
