Sorry. Brain fart. Robinson.
Who is Davis?
I believe he means Robinson or Johnson
Yeah. I have been looking for it as well. The NCAA website that would have it, is impossible to navigate. At least you recall the NCAA passing a rule on this . I am like you. I just can't recall who this applies to. Since it was linked to the Manning deal.... you could be right about it not applying to assistant coaches.
Must be OK, didn't UCLA do the same thing w/ Park Tudor coach and Bluett?
I think Hwy1 must be right.
I'm guessing the rule is in place to try and keep schools from giving coaches lower positions and $ just to bring in a recruit, whereas when the same thing is done at the asst. coach level that coach would actually have to work for the $ even if they brought in the recruit with them. Also, from the Cheaney thing, it would seem that there is a limit on asst. coach positions? Just a guess, but doubt there is limits on # of those lower level spots.
I have a question about the assistant coach dealings.
Wouldn't it be easy to give the new assistant coach a "signing bonus" that then goes directly to the kids family?
I may be a skeptic but there is good reason why so many people have first hand accounts of basketball players driving around in "Pimped Out" expensive cars. Another extreme example was Reggie Bush's family getting a $250,000 house. Many of these top rated kids seem to be getting money one way or another. Do others believe this is as common as I do?

The source of most of the money is from agents or "boosters" and not the schools. In the Bush case the source of the money was a "wannabe" agent trying to get Bush as his client.
I doubt that a school would get involved in paying money in the form of a bonus to an assistant coach to pay a recruit. Again it's not the school but boosters and agents that pay the money. If a school actually wanted to pay the recruit, this would hardly be the best way to do so. It would be too easy to trace this kind of deal. In other words there would be much better ways to "cheat".
Some years ago Kentucky probably paid a recruit and/or his father through an assistant coach in cash sent my mail. They got caught when the "package" broke in transit and the cash spilled out. That's why you should never send cash by mail. But this is the exception rather than the rule.
I'm sure Emory express had completed several deliveries for UK, before that package burst!
I doubt they have 10, 20 win seasons, that didn't involve cheating.
See the post above yours. Not sure what I was thinking at the time. Meant Robinson.
saw that after I hit reply on the previous page.
I wish this site had a 'delete reply' option. (don't read too much into that statement lol)
cheers again tho,
