    The NCAA lack of effort in investigating North Carolina is sick. Another year that they are allowed to participate in the Tournament is wrong. UNC knows it and the NCAA wants to have them in and playing so more money is earned.Powerhouse programs such as Louisville, Syracuse, North Carolina and Baylor are getting away with fraud. I hate the hypocrisy that the NCAA is exhibiting. University of Southern California tried to get away with paying football players until sponsors of the NCAA couldn’t take it anymore. Then and only then the NCAA acted. This has to stop before the NCAA has zero credibility.

    I think they’ve already reached zero credibility, at least with me.

    IU 34, it’s part of a bigger neoliberal/neoconservative takeover at these and other academic institutions in general. I’ll leave it at that and won’t get into the “political” discussion, the abstinence from which is in itself a political choice. LOL.

  • Shaggy_C

    Just goes to show – self-imposed punishments are for suckers. Why punish yourself when the NCAA isn’t going to do anything until long after the fact? In a just world the entire athletic departments at schools like UNC would be disbanded for several years due to gross violation of the very concept of student athletics. Instead, they get a Final 4, huge fan support, a big boost to recruiting, earn tons of money, and maybe a few years from now get a slap on the wrist.

    AB summed it up perfectly when he said it’s ok to be proud of this team and respectful of their accomplishments, yet want more. earlier on in the podcast, chronic echoed exactly what i said in 5 takeaways. talentwise, we’re still not close to the elite teams. that’s got to change. CTC’s got this team going in the right direction, but he’s not there yet. IMHO, there’s still work to do for next season as far as bringing in more talent. and not to sound mean, but i really think it’s time for TP to move on. let’s face it, he’s never going to play, and it wouldn’t be difficult (at all) to find a far more talented player, either via transfer or incoming freshman.

    If I were CTC, I would find a transfer big that would act as an insurance toward possible NBA/overseas departures. If no one leaves then it would upgrade the roster and give more balance. My understanding is May 18 is last signing date and May 25 is last with drawl date for NBA. This makes it challenging for coaches. Max Bielfeldt was a joy to watch—-thank you Ann Arbor.

  • WhatsUpKnight2.0

    and that’s kind of what he said in his interview yesterday. he said you don’t start planning for early departures after the season, but all throughout. i was probably more in the context of helping the players make the right decisions, but i’m sure he approaches recruiting the same way.

  • Hardwood83

    I don’t agree that IU’s talent ‘isn’t close’ to elite programs. A level below a small set of teams? Sure. But look at Kansas, the overall #1 seed and Elite Eight team. I don’t think IU is that far from their talent level- if at all. IU certainly hasn’t had the quality of depth in the front-line over the last several years. I think that is more from roster turn-over than poor recruiting.

  • WhatsUpKnight2.0

    i dunno, hard wood. i think i gotta respectfully disagree with you on this one. this year’s team had plenty of talent, i just don’t think it’s in the same league as ks or unc. but i could be wrong. if we’re 100% healthy, and unc shoots how it normally does, there may have been a completely different outcome.
