Will Wade suspended for rumor, but Penny Hardaway gets support for violation
Apparently Penny Hardaway, HC of Memphis University Mens basketball team paid the family of top 2019 recruit, James Wiseman, for moving expenses to move from Nashville to Memphis.

11,000 bucks to move across the state. Seems like a lot. But not the issue. The issue is that Memphis has ignored this players eligibility and he has played anyway. Yea, I know he got a court order, but if this happened at LSU the media would be all over LSU and Wade. My question is what sanctions does Memphis face when the ruling that he is ineligible is upheld? Shouldn't this be non-compliance? Can Memphis face probation and post season ban for playing him anyway? Hardaway won't care if they do, he is bucking for an NBA job and will probably get one next season. The hypocrisy and bias in college basketball is REAL!

Go read Jay Billas tweet about schools /NCAA not holding coaches accountable like players. It’s amazing that they lynched Will Wade yet 8 months later were the only ones that handled it the way they want.

Wade was suspended for not meeting with LSU.

Blame Wade’s initial legal team.

11,000 to a family! The horror !

I know I’m not addressing your point which I agree with, but who the heck cares or thinks this is unique.

I think this happened long before he was a coach there. Maybe 10 years ago?

But it does look bad.

Wade was suspended because LSU put him into that situation. They didn’t have to. Blame Alleva and his handlers.

ESPN reported earlier 2011 but that must have been a typo because now it’s saying 2017. And it was when penny was coaching high school.

In general the NCAA is a shame. Who gives a shite if this kids family got 11k for him to play high school basketball?

For me, this is what I’ll always remember Joe Alleva for.

Paying moving expenses at least feels a little less slimes than .. making a strong arse offer when talking with the shoe guy... still a violation.

Penny wasn’t the coach of Memphis when the money was given. Seems like BS.

A high school basketball coach who used to play in the NBA and would rather win than have 11,000 extra dollars I guess
