Patterson Debunks Yahoo Report

Spoke with Sean Patterson, Nate Miles' former guardian, late last night -- too late to get into today's edition of the Register. Not surprisingly, he debunks a great deal of the Yahoo Sports story and pointed out that the writers never once contacted him during their entire six-month investigation.

Said Patterson: "UConn's recruitement of Nate had no other involvement of anybody else except for Nate and myself. We went through seven months of answering questions of this particular nature and other things, and he was ruled to have an amateur status."

This doesn't debunk anything.

What was Josh Nochimson's relationship to Nate Miles? Did he provide any type of accommodations or help for Nate?

If he provided any type of guidance or support, and since he has a relationship with UConn, it is a violation.

The problem isn't the contact, the recruiting or the transcripts. The problem is UConn was involved with a recruit, and a guy who had roots in the uconn program jumped in, and started to guide Miles.

The issue is, how much importance was Nochimson to Miles.

This guy should be nowhere near any uconn recruits. That was not debunked.

Dave,

It seems a lot of people want to hear what they want to hear. Even the courants own Jeff Jacobs is taking jabs at Uconn and Calhoun. Instead of getting all the facts straightened out, everyone jumps to the conclusion that Uconn cheated.

This is going from bad to worse for those writers. It already was brought up that they missed several very important facts and now this? They had nothing to get UCONN in trouble with here (only the Nochimson-Miles relationship) and took some huge leaps to try and make a big story out of something minor and it doesnt help that one writer doesnt like Calhoun.

It sickens me that people are naive enough to think this isn't everywhere in college sports.

I also heard that becuase Miles committed in 2006 that all of these "illegal" phone calls came after so they were actually allowed because he was committed, is this true?
