Crazy Transcript Scandal out of New York

transcripts

I guess it’s the year of the scandal in college basketball? Breaking today from CollegeBasketballTalk is a former coach of Westchester Community College is being arrested and charged with nine counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument. That’s right, a community college basketball coach is going to jail in an effort to forge transcripts, which doesn’t seem like much to something like, oh, I don’t know, prostitution.

Seven different colleges including St. John’s, received transcripts from the school, which would ensure former players at Westchester being eligible to get into a four-year institution. One of the players, Keith Thomas was supposed to suit up for the Red Storm last year, but was deemed ineligible from both playing and attending the school once the initial news of the scandal broke. Thomas has in turn filed a lawsuit against Westchester CC over the scandal. Other schools with players deemed ineligible were Quinnipiac and Florida A&M.

It’s insane what some people will do in college athletics. Luckily I truly believe as a Kentucky fan we don’t have to worry about anything like that in present day.

    The player trying to sue the CC has to be joking…like he somehow didn’t know? Seriously? Good luck with that buddy.

    Forgery is actually a much more serious criminal offense than prostitution in every conceivable jurisdiction. Prostitution is actually legal in many places.

    But hey, kudos for taking a swing.

    The prostitution thing is appalling but I’m not sure someone completely corrupting the education system just so a kid can play basketball is that far off the mark. And in this case you don’t have to take the word of someone as sketchy as Katina Powell.
