Louisville: Pitino knew schools were offering money to 5-star recruit

  Louisville: Pitino knew schools were offering money to 5-star recruit Ex-Louisville coach Rick Pitino knew other schools were offering money to coveted five-star recruit Brian Bowen as early as 2015, according to court documents accessed by WRDB.com's Jason Riley. "DePaul trying to pay Bowen 200 K to come there," Pitino texted his former assistant coach Kenny Johnson, according to documents Louisville filed in its lawsuit against Pitino. "Crazy world." Pitino and Louisville have each filed lawsuits against the other over his firing in October after the program was connected to the FBI's investigation into corruption in college basketball.

Wikipedia caves, permits a tiny mention of Sarah Jeong's famous tweets (americanthinker.com).

In perhaps the best recent example of why no one should ever tweet, 5-star Georgia running back commit John Emery Jr. tweeted that he chose Georgia over LSU because Georgia director of player personnel Marshall Malchow paid him to do so.

Not in those exact words, though, Emery did use a few emojis:

Sigh.

Emery committed in late July, and he’s considered one of the best class of 2019 prospects in the country. And in all honesty, he was most likely joking, because there’s no way anyone could possibly be that dumb. And in a vacuum, it’s kind of funny! Big-time college recruits are in the perfect position to know just how silly the recruiting process is, and there are people from every fanbase convinced every other school is paying recruits.

Missouri QB Lock apologizes for insensitive tweets

  Missouri QB Lock apologizes for insensitive tweets Missouri quarterback and 2018 Heisman contender Drew Lock is the latest athlete apologizing for tweeting offensive remarks. The Columbia Daily Tribune received an anonymous news tip and the paper investigated and discovered the tweets sent by Lock when he was 14 years old in 2011. The tweets have since been deleted but one was directed at the gay and African-American communities."I was recently made aware of five tweets from my eighth grade year in middle school that were perceived as insensitive and inappropriate," Lock told the Columbia Daily Tribune in a statement.

QB – Tylan Morton, Griffin RB – Chris Rodriguez, Ola RB – Dameon Pierce, Bainbridge RB – Jalen Holston, Stockbridge WR – Jacquez Sloan Caleb is a great player no doubt, and someone that has used our recruiting service for years. Votes should be casted only in Georgia !!! NOT CAROLINA!!!

On episode No. 458 (May 31, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear a discussion about why one recruiting analyst thinks 5 - star running back Zamir White will pick Ohio State instead of UGA.

Emery making a joke like this should be hilarious, and it kind of is! But it’s also going to bring down the NCAA, perhaps the world’s most humorless organization, and it’s certainly going to fuel message boards for other schools, which exist just for this kind of faux-controversy. Emery deleted the tweet promptly, and responded with this:

That should take care of things!

At least he didn’t say he was hacked, though maybe it would have been better if he’d done so.

In any case, this will probably be kind of a thing for a while, and then it won’t be a thing, unless the NCAA decides to kick over every possible stone in Georgia. As they’re certainly inveterate rock-kickers, that very well might happen.
