I am sure many of you have read the DBR Front Page article on an alleged drug dealer being linked to the Kansas basketball team, right?
Here is my question-- if this dude GAVE pot to members of the team because he wanted to get in tight with ballplayers, is that an improper benefit and something the NCAA would be concerned about? If they bought pot that is something serious, but if they were given pot it might be even more problematic.
Additionally, one has to wonder about Kansas' drug testing policy in light of these allegations. The NCAA may be interested in that as well.

Don't ask me why, but my mother is making me Tweet. Says it will be good for my career. So, follow my ramblings, mostly on the film industry, @TVFilmTalk
I'm not sure why, but Bill Self has always struck me as a bit sleazy. I have no basis for this feeling; it's pure gut instinct. Therefore, the recent string of allegations about the Kansas program disappoint me more than they surprise me.
Guess we'll have to trust the NCAA to weed, err, sort this one out.
Not leaving until the game is over.
Regarding the DBR Front page article, of course KU is going to appear seedy when stuff is made up. Like, the one about Sherron Collins losing a civil suit, when in reality it was dropped by the accuser, for fear of losing Collins's counter claim.
Or the ticket scandal, which is somehow KU's fault, when they had $5 million stolen from them.
Or Darrel Arthur, who had a high school grade changed before he was ever recruited by Kansas, and was cleared by the NCAA before he ever sniffed Lawrence.
I have never been shy about admitting the program's faults, and some of those other claims in the article have merit. But let's not go crazy.
P.S. For whoever said that Bill Self is "sleazy", could you have him pick up the sleaziness on the recruiting trail? He hasn't come close to landing a McDAA-type player in almost 2 years.
Sounds like KU is one joint that better be prepared to take a hit from the NCAA.
I am doobie-ous of the whole affair.

College students smoking marijuana!?!?!? Unbelievable. Next you'll be telling me that they're involved in underage drinking.
