Just reading a strange story..Ft Myers Fl has a high school basketball tourney over Christmas/New Yrs and usually have some highly ranked teams. The schedule notes that Prime Prep has been cancelled. They are a new charter school in Texas started by Deion Sanders. They dropped their affiliation with Texas Education System. Between questions about illigal recruitment of players, fund raising and management contracts as well as a reality TV series Deion wanted filmed at the school. Deion was to receive $1000 -$7500 a month as well as % of fund raising and % of tuition. If they survive I would bet ncaa puts Deion’s players under a neon light.

Lots to process in that. On the surface it doesn’t look too good (or, perhaps, just bad) but, at the same time, it’s hard to find a negative with dropping their affiliation with the humorously named “Texas Education Commission”.

Considering their recent history that’s kinda like the “Nebraska Coastline Commission”.

Truly a great story about the Loyola/Mississippi State game. I knew the story but I didn’t know the people involved. That should be required reading.
