Wonder what ever happened to Neon, Butch and Ricky??
Ricky Roe got injured and returned home to run the family farm, and Neon and Butch dropped out of college, but both played in the NBA. The university would be suspended from tournament play for three years. Pete did continue to coach, but at the high school level.

I'm very glad that our coaching staff doesn't grandstand and play games with the players like Pete did (especially at the beginning of the movie). I like how they are straight up with the kids and teaching.

WTS, I don't begrudge Zion or his family getting "benefits." He should be able to be paid his worth for his services by a "school" and an organization that made a lot of money from a player of his skill.

Right, I don't care that Zion got money, just like pretty much every recruit does. What bothers me is the extent to which the NCAA came so hard after Wiseman while so many other top recruits got a pass.

Selective enforcement is one of the many ways the NCAA is corrupt in order to keep control. They let certain high profile universities get away with anything as long as they can prevent money and control going to players at the other 90% of colleges under its purview.

And the Condy Rice commission acknowledged they have a reputation problem in this area.
So what does the NCAA do? They form a double-secret-IARP group to remove the appearance of favoritism. It's laughable.
Meanwhile, they do nothing to shed transparency on transfer waiver immediate eligibility - a huge area of perceived favoritism.
And don't give me the tired old line about the NCAA being a group of universities. That's simplistic and dishonest. Enforcement is a bunch of lawyers protecting their turf and golden geese.
