I’m not expert on the massive bible of regulations known as the NCAA Bylaws, but it certainly appears that Duke’s long time basketball coach may have crossed the line when he offered 2012 recruit Alex Poythress a scholarship over the phone.
The real question is: if it is a violation, will the NCAA have the balls to actually enforce their rules against a big name coach of a hallowed program?
What a wild time it is down in Blue Devil Land. 1st, the lacrosse rape accuser from yesteryear is charged with murder & now comes news about sophomore linebacker Tyree Glover, who was busted for trafficking the 80′s drug of choice: cocaine.
Coach David Cutliffe dismissed him from the team & offered this reasoning: “for conduct unbecoming of a member of the program”. Let it now & forever be known that Duke does not want their athletes to deal drugs. Check. Maybe while he’s at it, Glover can look for cocaine abuse treatment information and write an essay about it for class.
Let us also not forget that last year, 3 players were also kicked off the team for firing a gun on campus. Devils, indeed.
The Hearld-Sun has the details:
Glover was arrested by Durham police on Gregson Street and charged with trafficking in cocaine, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said Wednesday. Michael said police then obtained a search warrant and searched his dorm room on the Duke campus where they found marijuana. Michael said police confiscated 29.6 grams of powder cocaine and 72.4 grams of marijuana.
Glover was charged with trafficking in cocaine and possession of marijuana and cocaine with the intent to sell and deliver.

The real question is: should they write an entire Masters Thesis about their sexual exploits, including sensitive information about the guys they hooked up with? Probably not, but once you write something like that and email it to your other friends at Duke University, you have to believe it’s gonna go viral at some point.
Our friends at DeadSpin.com copies of the entire the paper, and we have details of the story from MSNBC below. At right, the only picture of the author, Karen Owen, we have been able to find.
The Karen Owen List is the result of a senior thesis joke, named ” An education beyond the classroom: excelling in the realm of horizontal academics”. The “thesis’ described in detail all the Duke University athletes she had slept with. It was posted online and spread like wildfire everywhere. As a result, Karen Owen took down all her social network profiles, as she has become one of the most hated women in America this week.
The thesis is a power point presentation listing 13 Duke University athletes, along with detailed descriptions and 1 to 10 ratings. Owen’s list is pages long and contains names, dates and private physical attributes. “There’s no going back now, but maybe Owen should have written out her thesis with pen on real paper, or printed out just one copy that she shared with her friends in person. By putting it in an electronic format and sending it out by email, she practically invited it to go viral”, said Forbes.
