This is a long series on a blog, but pretty interesting. The speculation is that he's talking about Purdue at the time that Glen Robinson was there.

i haven't read the link yet but i met a guy (friend of a friend) that roomed with robinson. he always laughed at the fact that from being from the projects of gary, indiana, robinson had the best stereo system, big screen t.v. and cars that could be had. and also plenty of cash.

That's what happens when you save your money.

Robinson isn't the roommate in question. Supposedly it is a guy named Mat den Tam. Still a pretty interesting read. It made me wonder whether it is all big time programs that are doing this.

I played baseball at a KS Juco in the 80's and saw on numerous occasions members of our basketball team come to school with their rooms already "furnished", out of state players with only warm weather clothes being taken to "The Buckle" for a shopping trip, and what we called "get out of jail free" cards they carried for any incidents they had with the law or to get "fringe benefits" from some local businesses.

It goes on at all levels everywhere.

does your avatar say pr!ck? All things considered, I'll take a scoring system of "nil" versus "love".

BTW - when my kid was on scollly, I bought the car and bid screen for him, not a booster

Ha, same here, I thought it was going to be some idle antidotes, and maybe 3 parts long, and after 3 parts I was kinda bored, thinking it was just going to be the dorky guy bitching about his roommate having sex all the time, but it's turning out to be a very good story. I wonder how much longer it will be though, it's not even 2nd semester yet.

I'm rooting for Susan, although it sounds like she will be the victor.

and_one - yes, it does.

I've been too lazy to go through all of the comments, does anyone know where to find the video of or info on ten Dam as a 'professional ass-beater?'
