Oh Boy, Lupoi!

Fleeing town

In news that is breaking harder and faster as we speak, Washington Huskies’ recruiting superstar Tosh Lupoi is being investigated by the NCAA for giving impermissible benefits.  As Duck fans, we know what it’s like to be investigated only to be exonerated when all of the facts came out.  And, since the Husky fans were oh so very patient and gracious with us during our do-si-do with the NCAA, I’m going to give them some room.  I will only report on what’s being said thus far.

The L.A. Times reports a paper trail that includes payouts of almost $5,000.00 to the representatives of linebacker recruit Andrew Basham from Lynnwood (WA) High School.  Details still to come but Lupoi and Sarkisian (nicknames Tosh 2.0 and Sark 0.2) apparently used a plain brown paper bag for delivery.  Now we know how one becomes a “recruiting guru.”  And here we thought it was all about X Box Live.

The Oregonian, always known for being on top of breaking sports news said, “Watch out for the Beavers in 2014.”  Fat City, right on top of things.  That’s our Oregonian.

Here at fishduck.com, we keep a very serious and sober eye on developments.  We take no joy in the misdeeds of fellow institutions of higher education and hope that it all turns out to be a big misunderstanding.  #giggling uncontrollably
