Nu’Keese Richardson part of Tennessee probe

REPORT: Pahokee’s Nu’Keese Richardson Part Of Tennessee Investigation

According to the Broward Palm Beach New Times, “A former high school teammate says the University of Tennessee’s recruitment of Pahokee’s Nu’Keese Richardson could be what initially sparked the NCAA’s investigation into the school’s recruiting practices. He also said that even last year there ‘may have been some girls from Tennessee at a game or two.'”

This should cause considerable fear for Volunteer fans. The NCAA is building a case to launch an official investigation. According to today’s New York Times, “Tennessee has not received a formal letter of inquiry from the N.C.A.A., but the scope of the investigation shows that the enforcement staff is doing the groundwork necessary to send one. The N.C.A.A.’s interest and the strong stance by the Southeastern Conference commissioner, Mike Slive, on recruiting actions last summer leave Tennessee in a tenuous position with signing day in February.”

The role of Orange Pride hostesses with recruits was the subject of speculation by one blogger posting at the Knoxville News-Sentinel’s GoVolsXtra on March 2, 2009. According to the blog post, “Bryce Brown’s girlfriend Lacy Earps is a Jr. at UT, and would love nothing more than to watch her boyfriend play on Saturday’s without having to fly to Miami or Oregon. How serious this “romance” is I can’t say, but if her Facebook profile picture is any indication of how interwoven this romance is, Brown may be running through the “T” this fall. Lacey + Bryce = Bracey? This relationship must be serious, right?”

One comment left March 3, 2009, on the blog indicates a prior relationship status included Richardson. According to the anonymous comment from March 3, 2009, “Lacy is a member of the orange pride girl, and it is their job to take recruits and show them around campus. Just weeks before, her status was in a relationship to nu’keese richardson. Grow up peter pan. Quit stalking facebook.”

Was this “fake relationship” a reason Richardson soured on his time in Knoxville?

One issue being pursued by desperate Volunteer fans is the origin of the NCAA investigation. According to some on Gridscape, the fault belongs to Mike Slive. According to one post, “Anyone else think Slive is involved in this? I just think Slive hates Kiffin…” Many Volunteer fans agreed with the anti-Slive post.

    I love Lane Kiffin…what a prince, AND a bafoon. Congrats Tennessee, we are sure glad he’s yours!!

    I am a Tide fan, and even I think this article is ridiculous. You’re going to use a comment from a blog as evidence for this article? This story is worse than any story in my high school newspaper. Please don’t waste your time writing any more of these stories without any factual basis. I sure wouldn’t want anyone writing this type of speculation on any member of the Tide.

    Hell, it’s not just Slive, everybody hates slUT and Kiffin! And the guy from Georgia, what’s-his-name, that changed his commitment from Bama to UcheaT supposedly because he was afraid we were going to be hit with more sanctions. He is also part of the investigation. If he didn’t do any more than dip his wick (Who wouldn’t?), then maybe he’ll come back. RTR!

    Yawn. This is all in the public domain. There isn’t anything said here that hasn’t already been reported somewhere including reputable major sites like the News-Sentinel, the NY Times and the New Times.

    I would have linked the Facebook pages, but they have been deleted in an attempt to purge from the public record the information.

    BTW BamaFan1212, it was just confirmed again that these social networking sites are central to the NCAA probe. 🙂

    Not to be a jerk, but I told you so….

    Don’t be stupid 1212. It’s not just a blog. It’s almost word for word what all the media have been publishing. And Richardson is part of the investigation along with a former Bama commitment. It’s not as if the bastards don’t deserve it. 3/4 of the damn Vol Nation would gladly start a nationwide rumor about Bama with nothing more than something scribbled on a truckstop toilet wall, and so would the damn Barners! Screw’em! RTR!

    BF1212, your cover is blown. No way you are a Bama fan. This was written by the New York Times, not the Western Star. The hostess scandal is just a small part of the overall investigation. Repeat, a small part.

    Is that you in disguise Indy Vile?

    Oh, by the way, Ingram has doubled his lead over Gerhart to 3.5 percentage points. Ya’ll get ready for our future governor to accept his trophy! RTR!

    Dream on, you used-tampon-colored fans!

    You morons have some explaining to do about some vehicles somme Frosh were sporting last year.

    Texas is going to ram that Crimson TURD rammer-jammer-hammer up Nicky Satan’s ASS!

    Ifr any of you classless, uneducated Bammer Morons can read, try this on for size:

    Wow IVOL — you ALMOST completed a somewhat complete post without making an ass of yourself. I give it 60% intelligence. (clapping in the background)

    So asswipe, just what significance is that article supposed to have? You suggesting that there’s a deep dark conspiracy between the NYT, Urban Meyer and Pahokee High? Lay off the crack fool. More than the NYT have uncovered dirt on slUT in this mess, including the NCAA itself. And players and recruits from around the country have ‘Volunteered’ incriminating information; not just South Floridians! Going into a cocoon of denial will not make it go away or all better. Bwwaaa Haaww Haaww! Guess we’re not the only rotten cheating low life bastards after all! LMFAO. That makes LSWho and slUT. Lets have a perfect New Year and get Awbarn in the mix! By the way, Ingram is still pulling ahead. Now he has a 4 point lead over Gerhart, which equals 10%. They expect to make a projection by tomorrow evening. Go Mark! RTR!

    Rumor is that IndianaVol dated an Orange Pride girl during his seven years at UT to acquire a four year degree. However, he remained a virgin as she was constantly busy “escorting” recruits around campus.

    I love it. You can’t spell SLUT without a UT.

    Hey Indy Vol. For all you slUTs, the correct cheer is “HOOKER EM WHORNES!”. LMAO! RTR!
