Interesting story for you guys...
I have a professor who teaches my leadership class and he graduated from Illinois university and did his graduate work their as well. and he taught a bunch of players from that 05 Illinois bball team that went to the ship against UNC. James Augustine, Luther Head, and Dee Brown being the main ones.
He informed us that the staff was the only ones who knew that Luthter Head was involved in a heavy drug and alcohol problem on campus and got caught (during tourney time) and the university swept the issues under the rug to avoid press from the media.
Its things like these that could come into account of a players phsychee when drafting them. Even thought the media/community dont know about certain issues, its still attached to the player himself, so it could affect his work ethic/attitude/punctuality/dedication to the team/etc.
