This Georgia Tech basketball story has gotten bizarre
I remember the thread on here earlier in the fall about Georgia Tech and the booster spilling all of this dirt about Pastner because he didn’t wish him happy birthday. Pastner apparently filed suit for defamation, and the booster is claiming Pastner sexually assaulted the booster’s girlfriend? And apparently this booster isn’t really related to GT in any way, he’s just been a friend of Pastner’s since he was at Arizona? What the frick is going on here?

LINK

quote:

Among other accusations, Bell accused Pastner of sexually assaulting Pendley, which Pastner's attorneys denied in the lawsuit. Bell made a similar accusation about Pastner during telephone conversations with ESPN. "I am disgusted and devastated by the actions of two individuals to whom I showed compassion," Pastner said in a statement. "My family and I are victims of fraud and extortion and the extent to which these individuals have gone to harm us is truly unfathomable. I absolutely and unequivocally never assaulted or harassed Ms. Pendley and I am truly sickened by these false claims."



quote:

Bell, who served four years in prison from 2009 to 2013 following his conviction on felony drug charges, told ESPN that he met Pastner while Pastner was working as an assistant coach at Arizona. According to the lawsuit, Bell told Pastner that he was ill with cancer in June 2014 and asked for his emotional support. "No matter what, I am your biggest and most ardent supporter," Bell wrote in an email to Pastner in August 2015, according to the lawsuit. "I always have your back Josh. That's because I believe in you and what you stand for. You are what's truly great about intercollegiate athletics. Your passion is infectious. "The truth is that I am a better man with you in my life.



quote:

In February 2016, Pastner invited Bell and Pendley to attend games when he was coaching at Memphis. Shortly after they arrived at Memphis, the lawsuit says, Pastner sent Bell an email, which read: "As you know most important thing to me over anything else is having us always be in compliance with NCAA rules. Just remember, you cannot give anything to a player, not even cookies, a meal, a t-shirt, a dollar bill, gear, or anything else without my approval. That way I know if it is allowable or not per NCAA rules. Just want to remind you on that."


quote:

According to the lawsuit, their friendship began to deteriorate when Bell became upset that he and Pendley weren't allowed to eat with the Yellow Jackets during a postgame meal after a game against Tennessee on Dec. 3, 2016. Bell also became upset when he saw another Georgia Tech booster enter the Yellow Jackets' locker room, which Pastner wouldn't allow him to do, while watching a game on TV.



There has to be more to this story and this whole thing sounds like a Blue Chips sequel

Bell should be in a padded room.

He is. Shame on Pastner for letting it get to this, but this guy needs help. Also, Garry Parrish is what really got this story going. I blame him for allowing this guy in the spotlight because it is exactly what he wants. This full interview is nuts. LINK

I had not seen this. I do feel bad for Pastner as it seems like a total nut job that he helped is just dragging his name through the mud and fabricating shite. I’m sure he has played some recruiting games like pretty much every college coach but this goes beyond that

Yeah it sounds this dude was able to get close to Pastner and I’m assuming Pastner eventually realized he was crazy and should not be close to any program. He tried to cut ties and this dude is now going full on crazy.

Listening to Bell give that interview is enough for me to side against him and his hoe.

Not surprising at all. Gary's radio show used to be one of the best in Memphis b/c it seemed like it was you and your buddies having a conversation about sports. It's now hard to listen to most if not all days b/c of the political soapbox that he gets on and stays on for days on end.

Is Gary Parrish the one that looks like he should be the lead singer of a Ska/punk band?
