09:13 AM ET 08.14 | Perspectives-Joslin senior Anthony Davis has orally committed to play basketball for Kentucky, his father told the Tribune on Friday. The 6-foot-10, 220-pound forward remains at the center of a controversy surrounding his recruitment after the Chicago Sun-Times published multiple stories citing sources alleging Anthony Davis Sr. was asking for between $125,000 and $200,000 in return for his son's commitment. Davis Sr. and Kentucky denied the allegations.

Some guy posted something about integrity in the Reggie Bush thread. It fits here too.

Your right. College athletics isn't what it used to be.

Wait a minute. We FINALLY have a CBB thread, and we're wasting it talking about college basketball? Where's Crimmy when you need him?

You mean like back in Norman during the Switzer years?

Let it go JRM. They paid their debt. Mea culpa, mea culpa. I could mention the Southwest Conference during the same timeframe.

Is Calipari bidding against himself?

No, he had to be sure to outbid Ohio State, Syracuse and DePaul.

It is all part of the win at all costs SEC philosophy.

Sorry, Switzer was just the 1st example that jumped into my head. My point was that anyone who thinks college athletics is a dirtier business now than it used to be is dead wrong.No aspersions on the current regime at Zero U were intended.

SMU. NYU. College Athletics is what it was.

Pimpin' his son. No class.

No class; fits right in with Calipari.

He signs with Kentucky, they go to the final four, Calipari jumps to the NBA and flames out, Kentucky gets its season and FF appearance voided, then a few years later some other College hires Calipari. Stop me if you've heard this before.

Please remember the rules, folks.

I will not be silenced. In your heart you know that I am right. The SEC is a perversion perpetuated on collegiate athletics. If I could recruit simpletons and felons I could win the division I championship in football and basketball. Come to my way of thinking before it is too late. National interests are at stake here and not just in the athletic arena.
