Self-incrimination?

>> Thursday

Memphis athletic director R.C. Johnson on Thursday defended the men's basketball program. "We wouldn't play anybody if we hadn't checked it out pretty thoroughly," Johnson told The Associated Press.
If you ask me, that could very easily be interpreted as, "There was, in fact, something worth checking out--which is to say that we knew something was up, and we checked it out. We kinda-sorta did some investigating, but only enough to help us sleep a little easier, not enough to actually turn up any hard evidence of misconduct that could have forced us to sit one of our players--especially not if it was Derrick Rose."

If the accusations were totally baseless, I would expect him to say something like, "We would never allow one of our athletes to play if we were aware of any misconduct or violations on the part of that player."

Ok, maybe I'm reading too much into this.

Any selfish defending of the one and done rule I may have done in the past (though I've never fully supported it, just enjoyed watching guys like Rose, Oden, Durant and O.J. Mayo on a college court) is definitely over with. Baseball's model where you either go pro out of high school or commit to playing 3 years (I'd adapt it for 2 possibly for basketball) is a good one, as the NCAA should not be the ones that have to pay the price for a bunch of dumbass NBA GM's that cannot properly evaluate and project. Also, I can't blame these kids for wanting to turn pro at 18 when you can in every other work of life except football (and in football, you basically need the 2-3 years of physical maturity).

College sports is a dirty, dirty business. Rose just happens to have gotten caught, though nothing will be done about it. The NCAA needs to work on quashing this sorta crap the year it happens, not a year or more later. The NBA should just allow these guys to play, and quit making schools give scholarships to 1 year players.
