I wont go as far to say Wooden was directly involved but I think someone of his great intellect wouldnt be completely oblivious of "things" happening. So to say my claims are asinine would again be like you are that old time wrestling fan that found out it is fake but you love it so much to ever show contempt towards it.
I admit I have not read it entirely but here are excerpts of UCLAs very own beloved Bill Walton and his book back in the late seventies called “Bill Walton: On The Road with the Portland Trailblazers:
"I hate to say anything that may hurt UCLA, but I can't be quiet when I see what the NCAA is doing (to other coaches) only because (they have) a reputation for giving a second chance to many black athletes other coaches have branded as troublemakers. The NCAA is working night and day trying to get (them), but no one from the NCAA ever questioned me during my four years at UCLA."
“UCLA players were so well taken care of – far beyond the ground rules of the NCAA – that even players from poor backgrounds never left UCLA prematurely (for pro basketball) during John Wooden’s championship years."
“If the UCLA teams of the late 1960s and early 1970s were subjected to the kind of scrutiny (other schools) have been, UCLA would probably have to forfeit about eight national championships and be on probation for the next 100 years.
The question is always why would UCLA have to cheat, good academics, attractive campus and proximity to talent. But it is telling that it took Wooden, arguably the greatest coach of all time, 15 seasons to win a national title. Before Gilbert got involved and the talent arrived, the Bruins weren't the best. What does that tell you Robbie? Apparently a team capturing 10 titles in 12 years, putting together undefeated season after undefeated season, recruiting high school All-Americans from all over the country to sit on the bench, yet never having them transfer or declare hardship wasnt enough for it to dawn on anyone in the NCAA that, gee, maybe they are cheating? But that is your NCAA. And that is your college athletics, where corner cutting doesnt make a guy a bad person; it makes him a successful coach. The sooner you accept that there are no angels in this business, no white hats and black hats as the NCAA would like people to believe with its public relations campaign of a rule book. Everything is a shade of grey. Everything is situational ethics. Everything is pick your poison. Even the so-called great UCLA legacy. Even the great John Wooden. Wake up and "really" taste the beer Rob… HaHa
Not sure all Bruins feel that Bill Walton was beloved, thoses are your words, He was a great player at UCLA, but caused the university problems.
I could mention a "few" beloved trojans that embarrassed USC.

Besides...Rice, Sam Houston State and Rice?! Give me a break!! Esp. so shortly after A&M wussed out, you'd think you wouldn't be stupid enough to remark about us needing to schedule tougher opponents. Use all of your connections wth A&M and tell them to quit being so chicken shit.

It doesn't matter when you TRIED to make that claim. You can pretend all you want, the fact is they wussed out. They were afraid to play USC, so don't make yoursel look like even more of an idiot by saying USC should schedule tougher teams.

Even if it was for the bs reason you're claiming,(which it isn't), the fact they backed out shows what I've always said. We can't schedule them just because we want to. THEY have to agree to it, you flippin' airhead!! Damn, you're stupid.

Of course!! you think USC is gonna try and scheduling any of the top teams? when they scheduled Utah State 3 years ago UTS was a shytty program, and USC was shaking in their boots probably saying "we had no idea they would be competitive in 2013" so is it a surprise they would wuss out playing A&M? not surprising at all!!

Please sir, such disparaging remarks about my friend Miss Wolfie. Next thing I expect to hear out of you fellas mouths is something like "a lot of people from her past would know if the carpet matched the drapes!" This barrage of uncomfortable reminders must stop I tell you :/

Like I said many times, I have never disputed Sam Gilbert giving BB players gifts, just like there are many USC player receiving gifts TODAY from fans and alums, like for example: ever see a fan offering food to a player after a game, as the fans continue their tailgate fun?? it's the same thing. Now, if JW knew about his players receiving cash and other things and he turned the other way, or UCLA, I don't know, only JW knew...and there was something he took it to his grave or someone has been holding these secrets - I don't know, and neither do you.

What I do know, is the NCAA investigated the case and they dropped the case saying the had no improperities or violations (maybe second tier? IDK) but the charged were D-R-O-P-P-E-D...therefore no probation, no violations, no sanctions = clean slate.

If he JW did cheat, he was smart, not like the stupid trojans who had an Assistant coach Marv Goux giving the player money directly from the boosters and USC got hammered by the NCAA. and this, you hypocryt, was at the exact same time JW and UCLA were supposedly according to jealous trOJans "cheating" LMAO that's right this happened while John McKay RIP was winning national titles and Anthony Munoz driving a new Cadillac, courtesy of your boosters, through your asistant Marv Goux, RIP

Come at me with more substantial claims, show me where UCLA was caught cheating...until then? S O U R G R A P E S

Lifer please, Bruins or not, a mid season poll guessing about a draft that doesn't happen until late spring. I am also ashamed of nation for even posting this :/

And I would think you would be more cautious here, especially with Hot Rod Hundley's welfare. Matthew Barkley would have been the number one NFL pick with a poll like this last year at this time!

Go Bruins! We don't need Houdini-like predictions right now!

Only jealousy going on here is you, for not being able to get into or graduate from either USC or UCLA.
