The Bag Man excuses himself to make a call outside, on his "other phone," to arrange delivery of $500 in cash to a visiting recruit. The player is rated No. 1 at his position nationally and on his way into town. We're sitting in a popular restaurant near campus almost a week before National Signing Day, talking about how to arrange cash payments for amateur athletes.

 

"Nah, there's no way we're landing him, but you still have to do it," he says. "It looks good. It's good for down the road. Same reason my wife reads Yelp. These kids talk to each other. It's a waste of money, but they're doing the same thing to our guys right now in [rival school's town]. Cost of business."

 

Technically, this conversation never happened, because I won't reveal this man's name or the player's, or even the town I visited. Accordingly, all the other conversations I had with different bag men representing different SEC programs over a two-month span surrounding National Signing Day didn't happen either.

And Napier goes to bed hungry.:rolleyes:

 

Playing basketball for UCONN in the AAC is a far cry from playing football in the south, especially the SEC. Two totally different worlds, now the UCONN womens team that may be a different story. Seems like they still run campus no matter how many banners the men hang.

I firmly believe that the coaches truly don't know this goes on, or do whatever they can to turn a blind eye to it. No way they really involve themselves in this.

 

It happens though, no way to think it doesn't.

 

Agree. Out of sight, out of mind.
