For the UA, our head basketball coach in particular, to place limitations of questions (only "with respect to basketball") during this press conference, is truly outrageous. His belated and carefully crafted and parsed statement, obviously prepared by all sorts of lawyers and crisis managers, was a non denial of involvement if ever I've seen one.

The press corps should have pinned his ears back and insisted on pursuing this line of inquiry. If he continued to refuse to address the topic of the future of U of A basketball, if they had any integrity, they should have left the press conference.
