Well that's an ugly look
The Creighton shirt? Or taking the $6K?
Obviously the creighton shirt
Hopefully...since he was in vegas, he took that 6k and played some black jack.
Dabo's gonna be sh*tty
Blue bloods buying kids by stuffing cash into sneakers and mailing it to them smh
I am speechless. I am without speech.
"There were also discussions of the mother of Jahvon Quinerly requesting $20,000-$25,000 from Arizona. Quinerly originally committed to the Wildcats, but backed out after Dawkins and Code, among others, were arrested in September 2017. Quinerly played last year at Villanova, but is set to transfer."
Interesting to see the discussion of Quinnerly come up in this investigation. You think this is why he was on the outs with Jay Wright, or just not good enough to see consistent time?
He was on the outs with Jay because he's not any good at college basketball and thinks he should be.
Whether Nova got involved in the payment business, who knows. It'd seem odd to go from big money promises at Arizona to $0.00 at Nova, when I'm sure there were plenty of others willing to pay for his commitment. But really, who knows at this point.
Saw him play multiple times last year--in my opinion he just wasn't good enough. He had opportunities but just couldn't do much with them. Villanova will never mss him.
As much as I want to beat them, I'd hate to see Jay Wright rolled up into these scams. Nova seems like they run a clean program from the outside.
I agree. It would be a huge disappointment if he gets caught up in this scandal. But the allegations involving Quinnerly don't seem to involve Wright or Nova, yet.
Is this the big work-around?
Thanks to @Jared Grubbs twitter feed for this. I thought for sure there would be a thread or a discussion about this already...
Even if the California legislature says it's okay for college athletes to earn endorsement money, that doesn't change the fact that it's still a violation of NCAA rules.
That's true, but if all of the top 300 basketball kids choose to play in California, the NCAA tournament will be somewhat uninteresting.
The Pac-12 will still suck.

I don't see anyone getting their money's worth out of Quinerly. Wright gave him chances--Quinerly now has another chance to disappoint someone else.
Agree, college basketball in Cali could become a quasi-version of the G-League (depending on how good the kids are that want money & how much the endorsements are worth). Those schools won't be dancing in March Madness though.
Your right, some kids will stay closer to home and seek a real education - but I would think the money would be a big draw for most kids, and a post season tournament of only California schools who decide to leave the NCAA could ultimately be more of draw than a talent-denuded March Madness.
