Pat joined Ed and Steve to talk about the current scandal at Louisville, involving parties with strippers and underage consumption of alcohol on campus for basketball players and basketball recruits.
When asked if the scandal was plausible Pat said “yes, it’s a well known fact that when youngsters come on recruiting trips to universities they are taken to parties.” Pat also mentioned that this is probably just the beginning and that there are problems with these trips that are probably much more serious.
Ed asked Pat what he meant by more serious problems and Pat said “a lot of times you an follow the cash, like Shapiro in Miami being on the sidelines and hanging out with the coaches.” Pat went on to say “he either got that money from either someone in the coaching staff or someone in the community who was familiar with that kind of money.”READ MORE: Maryland Reaches Over 10,000 COVID-19 Related Deaths, Governor Orders State Flags Lowered

Muggsy has been happy to see his hometown team enjoy early success in the Big Ten saying, “I’m a little biased because I’m a wake Forest graduate, but they have represented the ACC really well since moving to the Big Ten. I’m always pleased about my hometown team doing well.”
steve asked Muggsy whether he is surprised that more short basketball players haven’t followed in his footsteps and made it to the NBA. Muggsy acknowledged that he is surprised and even pointed out another Baltimore City high school star Aquille Carr whom he had hoped would follow in his steps, “I’m surprised because its all about the way you play the game. A great example is Aquille Carr. I was really high on him. He had the ability and talent, but when I got a chance to watch and he didn’t play the game the way he should have. You have to play the game much bigger than you are.”MORE NEWS: Fire At Edgemere Senior Home Was Triggered By Cigarette Igniting Medical Oxygen, Officials Say
