The judge really laid into him verbally. Seems like everybody knows he’s human garbage and this is the most they could reasonably hit him with.
';I think you're both wrong here. CJP isn't clean cut or well intentioned, and I question his intelligence. Keep in mind that he learned under Calipari, who coached for two different schools that had to vacate Final Four appearances (while being personally 'cleared' of wrongdoing - sound familiar?). And one of those schools was bailed out by us taking CJP!
Pastner came here with his bag man. He was surprised when current Tech coaches told him it would not be allowed. But then, he was enabled by an Asst. AD overseeing the program and the head of Compliance (both of whom have 'surprisingly' left). They not only covered for him, they threw others under the bus defending him (Darryl Labarrie says, 'hi'). Bell may have been dirty and stupid, but he didn't do this in a vacuum. The only thing CJP may have learned (I hope!) is that this will be his last coaching job ever if he gets caught again.
