In what has to be the dumbest investigation of NCAA rules violations, UCLA has been asked to look into possible illegal contact between star freshman Kevin Love and The Wizard of Westwood John Wooden. Apparently there was some sort of short conversation last year sometime during his visit to UCLA. This is a prime example of how much out of touch the NCAA guys are. If they knew anything they would know that John Wooden is just about the best ambassador of collegiate student athlete achievement that there is. And uh… the man is 97 fucking years old! He is about as close to a NCAA violator as I am the point guard of the Los Angeles Lakers. And here is the other thing, if these guys knew anything, they would know that John Wooden will talk to just about anyone who happens to walk past him and say hello. Don’t they have better things to do, like fix the BCS?
