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.

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.

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.

I agree with the more stories about Mat though. With the url name and the image on top of the page you would think it would have something to do with basketball, not his heart torn between 2 girls.

He's coming back around to the Mat story; I'd say he felt like laying a little ground for realization he came to at the end of part 17.

After all this time off they've posted a video about finding basketball courts in Pisa and some other BS. Kind of dumb, but the ending is pretty funny.

Jason Bennett is the reincarnation of the great roommate in question. I remember the great game he had a couple years ago against us at the Phog as these were his stat lines:

5 mins played
5 fouls
0 pts
0 assists
0 rebounds
0 steals

He fouled out in 5 MINUTES!!!!

Well folks, the series ended last week, so if you were waiting to read it all at once, or just a large chuck at once, have at it.

In case you missed it the first time around, the first several chapters are great-- giving an iteresting behind the scenes look at the perks of being a basketball student athlete... er, an basketball athlete... er, a basketball prospect.

The downside is towards the last few chapters the author kept making it more about himself and how he sucked with the ladies.
