Just wondering the office of enforcement would issue something about the Noel news. I think it is an agent sorta thing most likely like Shabazz, but figured there might be some kind of press release.
What would they say? And why say it?
"As of right now it is a routine investigation that the NCAA does with a ton of players every yr. We don't know more than that. I suppose we'd talk more if we knew more."
That's all they really can say at this time.
Now that you mention it, it is pretty quiet on the Shabazz story. I guess since he didn't sign with UK it became a non-story. The NCAA must have gotten their point across to his family/handlers.
I guess Noel is the next name on the "if he signs with Kentucky" hit list.
It is my understanding that the NCAA investigates a ton of players like this every yr. The only reason why the media is making this story seem like it is something is because it:
a) involves arguably the top player in the country
b) involves UK which is the top program in the country
If this was a 4* guard who is thinking about comitting to Vandy you'd never hear about it.
Cal has already commented, he said they would NOT be commenting on Thamel trash article.
The only statements UK would need to make is:
Thamel is a moron. Has been for a while.
Here.We.Go.Again. with an eye-rolling emoticon in the statement just for dramatic effect.
Welcome the new generation of domination.
