Dick needs to Stop this already.  He's literally ignoring the fact that Lousville & Kansas have much bigger problems regarding the FBI trial then Arizona does. I suggest all Wildcat fans go on twitter & give old Dickie V a piece of their minds.

Here's what we had to say to Dickie V yesterday on twitter. He trashes on UofA everyday now. I hope Miller sues everyone when it's all said & done!

Should get the school’s lawyers involved and issue a ‘cease and desist order ‘ and sue him for libel.

It’s not as easy as just suing him or ESPN. That would bring a deposition and who knows what skeletons may come to light

Has he read any of the details surrounding the ADIDAS money that was given to Ayton?  If you can add 1+1...you can figure out that Arizona didn't give him money in the situation that was given under oath today...

This guy is so annoying. He defends Pitino non stop cause he did not know. Hates on us even though we are seeing Miller did not know. Heck Ayton likely never knew about the payment. His main defense is Book was arrested so Miller has to be punished but we now know a Louisville assistant did pay Bowen directly. Just a bunch of BS. Dude is too old to understand facts at this point.

Funny...because the article above acknowledges that Pitino gave a "thumbs up" emoji when the runner confirmed that Bowen was going to UL.

Miller likely had the same involvement as Pitino (regarding "under the table ****")...but Arizona hasn't been proven guilty yet. 

Ridiculous to think that Dukie V is still running his mouth about Arizona...AND the fact that ESPN just put out another headline that Miller won't talk...about accusations that involve ADIDAS (NOT the Wildcats).

Every day, I wake up and hope that Miller sues ESPN for slander when this whole thing settles.

The most concrete and damning evidence is pointing to Kansas and L'ville yet everything ESPN and their lackeys keep pumping out has Arizona as the focus. This is pure madness. I don't know how the University hasn't stepped in or anyone else with some common sense to end this completely biased and possibly malicious reporting.

You have to wonder what his motivations are. The guy is effectively retired and he always focused on the positive, and addressed the negative in a sober and helpful way and arguably did more for college BB than anyone in his generation. His enthusiasm and knowledge for and of the game could not have ever been questioned. Yes, he was annoying to listen to call Duke games... BUT THEN...WTF happened? He now seems petty and vengeful. Angry and obdurate. To keep harping on the negative and being defensive...he is not helping, he is not solving anything and he, apparently, does not know when to be quiet.  Very sad that the last vestiges of College Hoops heyday are quickly disappearing.

As the new guy here, I have to warn you, I am no longer a fan Sean Miller. So here is the manifesto - submitted respectfully for your (dis)approval. 

I loved Miller's recruiting. I hate the mid-1980's mid-major ideas of defense and the consistent coaching of Final Four talent to sweet 16 losses.  You can be mad at the loud mouth guy on twitter...but the REAL problem, the REAL issue, is 100% Arizona and Miller. We have no leg to stand on - our (read: Miller's) corruption, cheating and silence makes it impossible to refute a story like Schlabach's, even if it is completely untrue (I believe it is untrue, although, again, there is no actual resolution). Everyone in the country who is not an Arizona fan thinks AZ Basketball is dirty, I have travelled extensively and it is not pretty. DECADES without any major NCAA violations, demonstrably one of the cleanest programs in the NCAA history - all thrown out the window. Multiple P.E.D. problems with the same (high profile) idiot player.  Miller knew about Book and should have been fired OR he did not know what was happening in his own program and...should have been fired. And the last remaining 'clean coach' was secretly buying plane tickets for players to what...help reinforce our innocence in other matters?

The program was/maybe still is out of control. Then, we just stayed silent - way to look innocent, dummies. If we're going to cheat, then we should at least win, but apparently we cheated all so we could use world class athletes to run a defense designed for high school girls in the 1970's. Sue Schlabach, Fire Miller, right the ship - but we left everything just hanging in limbo...no answers, no proof, no resolution. 

My anger is not at Vitale, it is at the AD's office and Miller. They have made Arizona into an indefensible pariah. We deserve it. Plain and simple, we brought this on ourselves and we have not raised a finger to refute any of it in a meaningful way. "What about Louisville?!" is a non-sequitur argument at best.

To me, it feels as if Vitale just likes stirring the pot and pushing people's buttons.  When posts those kind of comments, is he getting a lot of clicks and are people talking about him?  good or bad but they talking about him.  He even said it in one of his latest posts about how certian fan bases get all riled up.  The best thing to do as an AZ fan base is probably to ignore and not click/respond to anymore of his posts.  Most people seems to know he's senile & irrelevant already.

To assume that the rest of college basketball isn't doing this is ridiculous.  Every D-1 program in the country either a) deserves punishment OR b) should be relieved of responsibility...but forced to follow NEW strict guidelines after the FBI probe is completed.

Everybody knows at least one person in their life that "stretched" NCAA rules.  Hell, I even had a boss that played Safety for Dennis Erickson at IDAHO...and "worked" a fake job.  If this has occurred for 30 years at the small schools...it's the NCAA's fault for letting this get out of hand.

Arizona should NOT be the "example".  Miller obviously broke the rules & deserves attention/punishment when (not "if") he is proven guilty.

Since there isn't a shred of publicly-announced evidence that Arizona and its associates broke the law/rules, ESPN needs to stop attacking us...and start pointing the fingers at the programs that regularly rub Dukie V's bald head for luck.

As far as Dukie V is concerned...he absolutely has a love and passion for the game.  I don't know that he's ever shared a single comment that educated anybody about basketball during an in-game call.  He's a gimmick...just like Bill Walton.  They're pure entertainment if you want to add the word "baby" after every line...or if you want to tell stories about Linda Ronstadt (rather than focusing on basketball).  The guy dug himself into a hole by defending other ESPN writers when they took a bad lead...and they'll eventually pay for it.
