I agree with you on that. But now Duke needs to be looking over their shoulder, because an investigation is sure to come.

As long as Coach K got some Just For Men hair dye and oxygen in his lungs, the NCAA ain’t coming for Duke men’s hoops at all....

I don't know about that. I used to think UNC was untouchable. Look at them now, especially football.

Of course they got money, a job, and a house.

I think Willie Gary is representing Ford.  They should settle and get this out of the news media.  If a non-biased sports journalist started snooping . . whew. .

What you think on the first agent’s lawsuit? I’m leaning toward the agent.

I can't call it for sure, but I think she's got a good case.  Especially since she gave his family an advance.

I just want the NCAA to keep that same energy it had when it gave UNC a light tap on the wrist for all their various misdoings.

This is about Duke getting away with 'high-level' recruiting while other blue blood and next-tier P5 programs are being investigated.

Zion doesn't have to answer any questions now, but if it goes to court; Duke and its Nike proxies are going to get called to the stand.
