    If young Mr. Ware’s “Ooops event’ was the first one at Belknap Campus — then it could be brushed under the ‘great big rug’ that exists at “Comb-overU.” However the list is too long – Coach Hurrtt, hired from UMiami at $375k to recruit by one of his competitor coachs (Strong [when at U.Fla]) and Hurrtt IMMEDIATELY brings 12 Miami players with him!!!! Voilla. Fire Denny Crum and pay him $750,000 a year for a decade as an ‘Ambassador of the University’ (or to zip up the pie hole). Then there’s the millions of dollars ‘stolen’ from the ComboverU. Where’s Crit Luallen and her investigating crew when we need them?
