    Duke isn't Michigan where the football players get paid though

    Sounds like “I know what I am, what are you” retort.

    no one believes duke is pure as the driven snow

    No? If they paid a basketball player anything why wouldn't they pay football players? And if they paid football players why wouldn't they have a better than 3 star roster like Michigan? Or even Pittsburgh? That argument doesn't make sense

    If you listen to the podcast link I've provided it makes sense that Pat Forde, who rushes to judgement and this lawsuit by Gina Ford's marketing agency seem ridiculous

    Not at all, but we'll see where these allegations go and most likely that will be nowhere

    I thought Michigan basketball players got paid too. Didn't they ask for a reimbursement for the money they paid Chris when he called a timeout to give UNC a championship?

    Even though he may not even win Rookie of the Year, Zion Williamson is clearly the best first-year player in the NBA. He's only played 19 games so far, but his numbers are startling. He's averaging 23.6 PPG while making 58.9% of his shots, largely because 76.7% of those looks come within 3 feet of the hoop.
