You’re all familiar with the situation and who eventually got blamed for this mess.
In a time when we should be talking about Eric Gordon’s jumpshot and D.J. White’s chances at winning Big Ten Player of the Year, we’ve been sidetracked into discussing Kelvin Sampson’s phone records. Did he know they were three way calls? Doesn’t he have caller ID at home? All questions that were somewhat sidetracked during Tuesday’s teleconference.
Anyway, the real loser in this whole debacle (besides Kelvin Sampson’s public image) is Rob Senderoff, who a week before the college basketball season starts is out of a job. Whether or not he “voluntarily” decided to resign is one thing. How IU ultimately ended up at this point is entirely different.
What I’m curious to hear your thoughts on is how you feel on Senderoff’s role in this situation. Granted, he’s guilty of making the majority of the impermissible calls. But on the contrary, shouldn’t Sampson know what his assistants are doing? The arguments could go on and on.
So, bottom line: Was Senderoff simply the scapegoat in this whole situation, or was he really the one that should have gotten all the blame?
