I dont know if anyone can confirm this but last night I was listening to Fox Sports Radio and apparently a lawyer wants $50,000 back after giving it to Shawne Williams for playing at Memphis. Here's a link I just found:

The lawyer has also filed suit against NBA rookie Shawne Williams, who allegedly took money from La Mondue while at Memphis, the paper reported. The NCAA prohibits athletes from receiving benefits while in school.

Probably why Derrick Rose didn't end up at IU

And why Gordon did.

The one story says Shawne is from Pennsylvania, but I thought he was from Memphis. Sounds like this guy was working on his own not necessarily as an agent for Calipari, not that it would shock me.

This draft was a disaster. Shawne will never fit in here (he's the new Bender), and we cut White. :shakehead

I was rather impressed by Williams in the preseason - I think he is going to be a pretty good player.

So Shawne will have a string of injuries that ultimately end his career? Interesting.

Dear pacertom,

I am deeply offended by the subtle suggestion that Coach Calipari cheats. It's not like he ever had his team erased from the Final Four recordbook.

Sincerely,

But don't players usually get injuried while playing? See, this will never happen. Unless he gets hurt from the splinters.

Bender got injured playing? I didn't know that... When did he play?

BTW... I believe he is on the list to be inducted into the H.O.R.S.E. Hall of Fame. Maybe we'll get a banner to hang! ;)

:sad:
