Really? Because if that is how we are playing the game, how do you know that Rose even had knowledge of somebody else taking the test under his name?

I am inferring things based on the limited amount of facts known about this case - I would expect somebody as intelligent as your self to do the same.

Well, I would think that if you fail tests before, and then you got a letter saying you passed a test you know you didn't take, you would be very well aware that someone took the test for you :wink:

Where did it say that the author was a UConn fan? His twitter account said he was from Hollywood. Plus, have you seen World Wide Wes sitting behind the UConn bench? Maybe he just really likes Ashley Judd???

I wasn't referring to the author.

Are you sure he received that letter? According to him, he never received any letters at his Chicago address related to the failed ACT exams. He claims that there was quite a bit of lost mail that was intended for him.

Obviously I'm not insinuating that he didn't know about the test, but you can't prove that he did know about it....the same way I can't prove that Cal knew about the test... It's real hard to prove things, but its real easy to put together in your head what would actually make sense so I suggest you try that.

Only UMASS fans I've seen ripping Calhoun are all on a message board, not in a published article/blog.

I have, and getting yourself into hot water with a program doesn't seem like a smart thing to do if you are attempting to get a big money contract from a major program... just saying....

Why does it matter where it was said? A hypocrite is a hypocrite no matter what the forum is. If you are a total fraud on a message board why is it any different for you to buy a website for 20 bucks and post your hypocritical opinions on there?

What’s the difference between a quasi-professional “writer” who blogs and a message board poster?

One hypocrite gets publicity/advertisement and even possibly future endeavors from writing their nonsense while the other remains anonymous and has nothing to gain/lose from stating an opinion to fellow fans.

I understand your point about being hypocritical, I’m only saying that one publishes an article to the public with the intention of benefiting oneself (monetary, future articles, other jobs) while the other is a diehard fan that visits message boards.

One is a profession, the other is a hobby.
