ATHENS — I was going to ask Mark Fox a basketball question. I swear. It was my turn next on the microphone, and I was going to ask the Georgia coach about using only eight men in his team’s 93-82 win over LSU on Saturday.
But then, as is occurring nationally, off-field news got in the way of basketball.
ESPN reporter David Hale, who had been dispatched mainly to cover the LSU angle of the FBI investigation, stuck around for Fox’s press conference, since Fox had been so outspoken about the matter. A day before he called it “the tip of the iceberg” when it came to corruption in basketball recruiting. And that was before ESPN reported that Arizona coach-for-now Sean Miller was caught on wiretap discussing a $100,000 payment to a recruit. And it was before Yahoo Sports added more to its previous strong reporting.
The post Georgia coach Mark Fox goes off again on recruiting scandal: ‘I’m disgusted’ appeared first on SEC Country.
