Kevin Stallings is really against Kyle Fuller’s tell-all book

Former Vanderbilt starting point guard Kyle Fuller is trying to release a book about all of the wild stuff he did while in college when he wasn’t on the basketball court. It’s called Below The Rim: The Dirty Side of College Basketball and Fuller is asking for donations via KickStarter to keep the project moving forward toward an eventual release.

One person who isn’t excited about the tell-all book’s release is Kevin Stallings, Fuller’s head coach at Vanderbilt. Stallings read the excerpts that were leaked online and begged Mama Fuller to talk her son out of bringing down the family name.

First of all, that’s weak on Stallings part, bringing the name of Fuller’s late father into the equation. While he does have a point about the scholarship Vanderbilt awarded Fuller and how Fuller is starved attention, pulling the deceased father card is too far.

That being said, Fuller’s book goes too far and is very hard to believe. The stories are a little too R-rated for this website but you can find them on your own or read some of it via Deadspin’s story today. Let’s just say several female students at Vanderbilt should be worried about their reputation. I’ll leave it at that.

Oh, and I should point out that Clay Travis has his hand in the book too.

    Can we really be sure this was really Stallings? I mean there’s no evidence aside from forwarded texts. I dislike Stallings as much as the next person, but I don’t really buy all this yet. Some of Fuller’s stories about his “groupies” seem pretty outlandish for a mediocre player on a bad SEC team.

    You didn’t explain how you got access to ‘Mommy’s text records?

    And I agree, even a lard-ass like Stallings, facing an embarrassing scandal, would have enough sense to send the woman a registered letter, and not a rambling text message.

    It must have been the stress caused by all those Thursday night games followed by Saturday games. Yeah, that’s definitely it.

    while i don’t find deadspin credible in the least, this would be pretty interesting if it came out that the text messages are authentic from stallings. if true, that is a pretty poor attempt at “handling” the situation… but in response to “afidler”, I could definitely see some of Fuller’s stories being true. some of them certainly seem fabricated (or at least the details of some of them), but the premise that because he plays for a bad team means that he doesn’t get much “action” is fairly naive. it is big time d-1 and there are people out there that see that for what it is and want a piece of it.. that is just the truth.

    Using the dead father card isn’t too far; to old school people, doing something stupid & bringing shame to the family name used to be a big deal. Just like someone who has gotten something for free & doesn’t understand life, it’s not all about you.

    Meh, most of this stuff from Fuller probably has seeds of truth in it. There were a few players during my time at UK who had a reputation for pulling 2-3-4+ girls out of parties for private recreational activities, and my little sister has a friend who’s told a few Boogie stories.

    The excerpts will make Fuller look like a creep, but I’m not sure why Stallings/Vandy should care.

    Who’s trying to walk on Vandy’s team next year…?

    Yeah all these stories can’t be believed. Some one always has a friend or knows a friend that knows someone that knows someone that did something.Most of it is BS. Stallings wouldn’t be stupid enough to text that. But i do know someone thats sister use to be a guy in real life that played for the cards. PLEASE.

    Reading some of these comments makes me think it could only help Vanderbilt land a few eager recruits… Stallings should be on board for it…

    NOTHING is too R rated for this site……………come on….really? I wonder if all college athletes wrote books….would we be shocked?……would we be on probation? Hopefully since we have had our share of embarrassments at UK, we wouldn’t again approach the depth of the UNC scandal…(now there’s a UNC book that needs to be written!)…are you listening NCAA?
    Since we at UK have had our share of scandals (point shaving, money falling out of an Emery package, Billy Gillespie) perhaps we shouldn’t write articles like this one. (Though it is fair to point out shortcomings of NCAA darlings like Duke and UNC). UNC should be nailed. We were.

    I read nothing that is negative about vandy. Not one thing. D1 player bangs a lot of chicks. Not exactly shocking.

      He got a $1000 put in is to go bag. Violation. Also a $300,000 education, according to Stallings, and he can’t use proper English.
