NBA Scouts Sour On Guerrero/Alford's Third Rate Program

"I'll never go back to Pauley"

Thursday's game against Arizona wasn't only the Hoosier Loser's last chance to inject any kind of enthusiasm or momentum into a dead basketball season and program, it was also a chance for Chianti Dan to "showcase" the competency of his athletic department in a game of national importance and attention. And boy did he ever deliver...some hilarious gems.

Stop me if any of the following surprises you (H/T to jjreicher for calling this out):

Givony is of DraftExpress.com and Dan's terrible hospitality inspired him to do an informal survey of the NBA scouts to see which colleges are most/least accommodating for scouting. But what's the big deal? Well for starters, it's not like Givony is new to this game. He's been covering this a while, and unless every scout he's talked to is new at their job, then their treatment at Old Pauley Under Glass must have been particularly poor compared to our peers for them to vent in this way, and for Givony to find their complaints unusual enough to tweet.

I hope the scouts enjoyed their view of the fancy electric ribbon that we paid over 100 million dollars for or the great glass job they did on the exterior of OPUG, because they sure weren't going to be able to do the job they were sent to Westwood to do. Whatever your opinion of the NBA itself and the guys they send to scope out our guys, it doesn't sound to me like any of them are being unreasonable. They're not looking for a whole lot of free swag. They all said they'd be glad to pay for a good seat so that they could do their jobs properly.

It's just another example of the embarrassing, third-rate, bush league way Chianti runs his AD.
