The unexpected, complicated ticket scandal story that “rocked” the KU athletic department last spring is starting to claim its victims.
Can we litter the CHJ front page with as many coaches and players continuing to disgrace college basketball? What a joke.
Simply unbelievable how many within college basketball have put themselves, their universities and the sport in such a bad light. The latest is coming out of Philadelphia …
This seems … odd.
Thirty-year-old Jeffrey Layno is accusing several San Diego State players of jumping him at a night club over the weekend — and for receiving that punishment without any provocation.
How about this as the last big blast of bad news we receive before the season starts? Can we go three more weeks without an arrest or a player getting kick off a team? A coach or a member of his staff getting busted for breaking a rule? We can only hope. Saint Louis announced [...]
We have another preseason arrest in college basketball, and perhaps the most startling one yet. Baylor guard LaceDarius Dunn, considered by many to be a top-five player in the Big 12, was arrested today for a second-degree felony on his girlfriend. Dunn and the female were involved in an altercation on Sept. 27. The phrase [...]
On Labor Day, Wake Forest junior center did the absolutely deplorable: abuse a woman. The news of it didn’t go public until Friday, when we learned he was arrested and charged with three separate accounts of abuse. First-year Wake Forest head coach Jeff Bzdelik found himself in a situation no coach ever wants to be [...]
It’s been an unusually rocky offseason in East Lansing. First there was Tom Izzo flirting with the Cavs job, then Chris Allen was dismissed from the team, and now comes the arrest of shooting guard, junior Korie Lucious. Lucious imbibed and then, like so many foolish college students (though they are hardly the only guilty [...]
The writing always seems to be on the wall with some players.
If Drexel basketball is in the news in July, chances are it’s not about recruiting or the prospects of dominating the America East in the upcoming season. No, unfortunately, what we have here is a case of two men (boys), a desire for money and a stolen iPhone. The story only broke yesterday, but the [...]
Seems we can’t go six or seven months without a college coach getting in trouble with the law and having liquor involved.
And the yang to the previous post. This is some serious stuff, and it’s more than a month old. Remember back when Maryland defeated Duke on that Wednesday night near the end of the regular season? It was a huge win for the Terrapins. It all but locked up a Tourney bid and an ACC [...]
To some, this news will not come as a surprise. I’ve alluded to it before, but someone in the business told me this season that a large portion of New Mexico State’s basketball team were a bunch of players that, frankly, needed a helping hand or two. An authority figure to put them on the [...]
Before postseason play begins each year we get about five games that a longlasting and memorable. Maryland’s 79-72 Senior Night victory over hated Duke is one of those games for us this season. (As you read, think about the other ones from 2009-10 that would join it.) With bullets, let me list off my reaction [...]
That is a picture of a man broken. I think my heart breaks for him. News coming out of Tulsa today that Sean Sutton was arrested, basically, for trying to get a hold of as many pills possible to deal with physical pain. I’m guessing that’s not the only kind. “He’s sick,” [Payne County Assistant [...]
