So I see Memphis has a prized freshman that has been ruled ineligible. Yet they file a restraining order and are still playing him tonight. I don't even know what the heck that means. Ridiculous!

Saw an article this morning about this. It's a little more complicated than Penny Hardaway just giving the kid money.

Years ago, Hardaway donated a large sum to Memphis basketball making him a "booster". Then he paid the kid's moving expenses when he was still in HS, and (I think) before he was the Memphis coach. Now the kid, who he clearly knew BEFORE he was the coach but after he was a "booster" is enrolled at Memphis.

The other point the article made is that not only does Memphis KNOW that the NCAA has ruled against them, but that the university is circling the wagons to openly defy the NCAA and embroil them in a long and protracted legal fight. Meanwhile, they'll keep playing him. The article says that this might be the turning point where the NCAA will lose control of college basketball.

Anyway, good article: The NCAA suddenly has a huge problem: How Memphis could change everything

14 championships, 13 home losses since 2003

TTBOMK you are correct on all points, NotO!

And I hope this is the beginning of the end for the NCAA as far as college basketball is concerned. They’ve been on a slippery slope for years, then they lost *all* credibility with the UNC debacle. Now the Commission recommendations, the California pay ruling and Memphis... and I hope KANSAS standing up to them as well... it’s pretty clear that with the changing environment, time is NOT on their side.
