I would be, too. But Iím an old school guy who canít help but be disgusted by phonies like Self who pretend to be something theyíre not.

Iím old enough to remember coaches like John Wooden and Dean Smith who developed great basketball teams the right way, not by looking for loopholes in the rules.

Itís lonely in our world these days, Skyvue!

John Wooden was one of the dirtiest of his time. Had a guy specifically to find out what it would take to get certain kids there. A lot of the older coaches, especially Bob Knight, talk about the stuff Wooden would do.

I've read multiple posts on this board stating that Wooden wasn't as pure as the driven snow when it came to recruiting.

Sam Gilbert bought most of those championships. He once tried to write a check for a guy on another team just because he liked the way he played so much.

If true at least they won titles while cheating, seems worse to cheat and not win anything

Youíre not alone. Itís obvious I didnít know about the Wooden accusations. If theyíre true, guess I used the wrong coach to make my point about Bill Self. Does Woodenís guilt or innocence change anything? Not in my opinion.

A little too aggressive. The media buries this, as he's one of their golden darlings.
