Kevin Stallings continues to be Kevin Stallings


Vandy freshman Sheldon Jeter wants to transfer to a school closer to his home of Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania because of some personal issues with his family. Vanderbilt’s head coach Kevin Stallings has granted him a release, and in a statement through the school, said the following: “Sheldon has indicated that he’d like to play closer to home, and we wish him the best.” Sounds fine, right?

Wrong. Beaver Falls is a suburb of Pittsburgh, about 40 miles out. Pitt is the biggest major college basketball program in the area, and for some reason, Kevin Stallings is blocking Jeter’s transfer to Pitt, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Why does Stallings not want Jeter to go to Pitt? Who knows. There are message board rumors that Pitt actually knew about Jeter’s intent to transfer there before Vandy granted his release, which could be considered tampering, but there is no concrete evidence of that. Now, Jeter’s only option if he really wants to enroll at Pitt is have his family pay for the first year, and then accept a scholarship for the remaining three years.

Stay classy, Kevin.

    If Pitt contacted him about transferring before he was granted a release from Vandy, I can’t say I blame him for putting that condition on it. Call them on it and let them know that you know.

    If Pitt tampered with him, I’d do the same thing. Make him go to a small school instead or pay his way. If they didn’t everything by the book, Stallings is just being a d!ck.

    1. I agree with you if that was indeed the case.

    I also understand the “school has put significant resources….” that some use. However, schools blocking players is absurd, especially considering that coaches are essentially free to move as they please. Moreover, many schools have to pay extensive money after firing a couch, even when the coach clearly violated university and NCAA rules.

    Feesh – not even close. Stone wanted to transfer to our in state rival, which he eventually did, and we were playing them the next season.

    ‘for some reason’ and ‘who knows’. Exactly. We don’t know. There might be some completely legitimate reason.

    If Stallings thinks he was tampered with, then he can report it to the NCAA and make no comment about his transfer there. It’s not his job to “police” schools that commit violations. Furthermore, this is more of a punishment to the kid than the school. As usual, Stallings is acting like a hot-head spoiled brat. Remember 2 years ago when he was like “But why does UK get all the special Thursday night game times? We’re Vanderbilt…equals with UK.”?…paraphrasing there.

    Just one bite of an Oram’s cinnamon roll and you’ll know exactly why Jeter wants to get back to Beaver Falls. Oram’s is all that’s left in the once thriving town of the great Joe Namath himself.

    Players scholarships should go from practice one until final game. Before or after that coaches and schools should have ABSOLUTELY no say in what the kid does.

    Especially since those scholarships aren’t guaranteed for the following year for the kid.

    If Stalling knows there has been tampering I do not blame him. Does Pitt or any of their staff or “fans” have a history of tampering?

    People should play basketball whenever and for whichever school they want. And they should get paid to do it.

    Kevin Stallings is to the 2000s what Dale Brown was to the 1980s. Without the success.
