Illinois Lands One of the First Player Development Camps

These are part of the NCAA's effort to get away from the AAU scene and the corruption that has come through there.  It'll be great to be able to showcase the university for 3 days this summer to potential recruits.

This will just be more window dressing to make it look like they are doing something.

There's a real easy way to end corruption, punish schools that get caught so bad that nobody unless they were insane would ever consider trying it again. Everybody talks about the "death penalty" but that type of punishment is never used, when actually it should be the norm.

If a school is trying to cheat the system and get an advantage over other schools, there should be no such thing as a death penalty punishment by name, because it should be the common practice punishment of the governing body to prevent it again.  until thats done and its taken seriously then "the more things change the more they will stay the same" i'm afraid.

Louisville was using prostitutes for crying out loud, if that doesn't deserve a death penalty nothing does, its a complete free for all where the punishments don't fit the crimes and if you get caught you take it because its weak and worth the risk. so make it NOT worth the risk and it ends forever.
