A New Trick for College Sports Boosters

Something weird happened in college sports off the field that no one in the sports media is bothering to follow up on or even check for reality sake. If followed up and fire is found, it would hit the holy of holies Notre Dame football hard. A teenage freshman on Notre Dame's football team went on a date with a porn performer. It hit the sports and even TMZ new cycle for a quick moment then died. I hope the guys at Yahoo Sports go after this one because uncovering booster involvement would get Notre Dame football in the sanction zone. Why do I think boosters are involved? Just circumstantial, but something is not adding up right.

Let's review the official story.

1. Woman from across the nation manages to bump into a teenage football player while traveling in his area.
2. Teenager from humble background is being recruited by major college football programs, and enrolls at Notre Dame university.
3. During the football player's fall break in college and off week from the season, the football player flies from Indiana to New York for a Knicks game with lower level seats with said porn performer.
4. Confirmation of an overnight stay in a New York hotel is known via Instagram.
5. It is just a date, and the well known porn performer has her eyes on other college players.

Sounds honest. A woman over 40, who vehemently denies ever escorting, would just treat a young man she has her eyes on from one random meeting to a date at a Knicks game, paying for flight, hotel stay and Knicks tickets. That seems legit. What if we looked at this in another way?

1. One of the top names on the most viewed porn sites in the world involved in a sleazy industry (pornography) with massive overlap with prostitution is on a teenager's wish list.
2. Teenager from a humble background is being recruited by major college football programs, a corrupt industry known for providing players with special gifts to go to a specific university.
3. Booster finds out about teen's wish and says he can make it happen since porn performer was linked with another college athlete previously.
4. During the football player's fall break in college and off week from the season, booster arranges for the football player to fly from Indiana to New York for a Knicks game with lower level seats with said porn performer.
5. Confirmation for the booster of an overnight stay and what it implies in a New York hotel is known via Instagram.

I'm not a detective. I do think it would be pretty easy to poke holes in the stories of a porn performer and a teenager who mostly can't read well. The performer involved denies escorting, but if you snoop around The Erotic Review boards, they'll mention how it can happen with her, but you need an in. On the other side, this is actually far better for a booster. A booster could in effect spend thousands of dollars that would make a recruit starstruck and it is not a direct payment. The booster could pay for everything directly or better pay the performer to cover all expenses. What would the NCAA approach the booster with? You sent money to X and X spent a night with a player is tougher to prove without exact texts, phone calls, etc. This is probably part of the reason this died down quickly. Even if a booster were involved, it is not the worst thing a booster has ever done. She is a business savvy member of that sleazy business. Her real luck was in looking like Sarah Palin at the right moment. It seems fitting if major college sports have progressed to the point where they neatly meet with adult entertainment. Young people used for physical abilities and traits that are often discarded within 5 years.

  1. SOBL,

    Not sure if you've been following this Cosby stuff closely. The timing of these allegations against him seem odd and have probably been well known for years.

    I saw this: http://i.imgur.com/WWVIyDM.jpg

    I was unaware that he ever tried to purchase NBC, but it helps explain why he is being targeted now and not when he was generating $$ for NBC, CBS, etc. back in the 70's and 80's. This interview Cosby gave back in 1994 helps explain a lot of why he wanted to buy a network and who he was running into.

    I haven't been able to find a lot of information about the new media venture he was supposedly starting. I figure you're better at digging this stuff up anyway.

    PS Not necessary to publish this post. I knew of no other way to contact you directly so figured I would contact you here.
