Payne at Louisville worries me a bit to be honest. That’s a game changer for DJ Wagner and has NBA inroads. That being said, they’d be insane to not teams Pearl. UL fans forgot they are scumbags somewhere along the line. Need to own that
It'd be kind of cool to see Wagner play at UL. Even if it's at UK's cost.

As a fan I do not want that POS pearl at my university.
Yet your university is trying or has tried to hire Dewayne Peevy, Kenny Payne, and tried to poach Vince Marrow. Little brother gonna little brother.

Apparently Pearl has signed a long term deal with Auburn.

No way Lil Bro Junior College tried to poach Marrow? Dude turned down Michigan and then one of his best buddies at Michigan state. Is their AD that delusional?

That would be like Eastern Kentucky coming after Calipari.

But if they want to continue to recruit DJ, do we really think the NCAA is just going to overlook this little stipulation (especially since they love Louisville so much)?

11.4.2 Individual Associated with a Prospective Student-Athlete -- Men's Basketball. In men's basketball, during a two-year period before a prospective student-athlete's anticipated enrollment and a two-year period after the prospective student-athlete's actual enrollment, an institution shall not employ (either on a salaried or a volunteer basis) or enter into a contract for future employment with an individual associated with the prospective student-athlete in any athletics department noncoaching staff position or in a strength and conditioning staff position.

I think the catch is he isn't hired by the "athletics department". He is being hired by the "school", so they can continue to recruit him. Even if he does stuff for the AD, this will be following the rules...

Yea thats the catch. University employee as opposed to AD employee. Also heading up Alumni relations for the university, “official title” anyways.

Seeing how this rule was literally put in place bc cal hired Milt at memphis to get Dajuan away from Louisville, your not gonna find anyone feeling too bad about it.

Besides unless ive been told wrong lol, KP could have hired milt to any position banned by the ncaa listed above and DJ could still walk on and pay tuition with the bounty of NIL $$$ hes gonna get or hell even Milts salary, if he does want to come to Louisville.

It would stink for UL to put up numbers against a failure like Cal. Pitino did.

Payne is a new coach, has everywhere to go up.
