Has the Malik to Oregon decison caused an insiders meltdown?

    BN may go into meltdown again, the web hasn't responded for me for the last several minutes. Looks like an abundance of people may have caused the server to fail.

    Temporarily only...

    Hey, at least Malik made the right choice to get out of the hellhole he's in currently.

    Definitely is a little weird that he choose oregon over schools like Michigan, Ohio State, Kansas, Oklahoma, and UCLA but im sure he has his reason. Hopefully we can make him regret the deceision by making a run through the tournament next year.

    Malik placed importance on proximity to home and a chance to win the NCAA championship. What school could possibly beat Oregon on those criteria (you literally can't get further from Detroit than Eugene without going to Hawaii and the Ducks were 9-9 in the PAC 10 last year)? He also said he valued the loyalty of the schools who had stuck with him through the process, and Oregon has been there since, what, uh, last month? And of course he mentioned opportunites in and out ot basketball. Where can one possibly make more contacts than Eugene, Oregon (population roughly 140k, but only 100 miles from Portland)?

    It may sound like sour grapes, but I am dumbfounded with this decision. Sometimes you gotta listen to Occam - the most obvious explanation could be the correct one.

    If it walks like a Duck and quacks like a Duck - it just might be a shoe contract.

    There's plenty of credible evidence to suggest some wrongdoing-- or at least less than desirable doing.

    I was not aware until today that Oregon was the only school that Malik visited without his parents. This is sounding suspisciouser and suspiciouser.

    Has Malik actually signed an LOI yet? If the NCAA plans to look at this they may just wait til that happens (although violations are violations regardless of where the kid goes). In the mean time I would love to see the heat get turned up on this thing. The kid could still change his mind. (And I realize OSU wasn't even second, so getting him isn't the point.)
