Questionable recruiting practices in the Golden Triangle


Two recent articles I've read (one on ESPN, one on CBSSports) caught my eye. Not trying to stir anything up, just thought I'd post since I found it interesting and it relates to our SEC brethren in Starkville. Let me be clear: I am not saying anything happened nor do I believe that they did. Could be sour grapes brought up by other coaches.

This article pertains to the football program and its recruitment of a defensive back out of Memphis (currently on their roster). An assistant coach recently resigned due to this situation.

I found this article more interesting. It is poll of current collegiate basketball coaches conducted by CBSSports. It asked coaches for the names of players that were involved in "the dirtiest recruitment." Multiple players big-time programs made the list. Then, Rodney Hood and Renardo Sidney also appeared on the list.

Again, I'm not trying to stir anything up or drop accusations. I really don't care if cheating went down or not. More interested in starting a conversation about some of these topics.
