So, If It's Good Enough For Sir Charles?

I know we are about to stir up more hassles, but does this admission by Charles Barkley mean less grief or more for us here at UK? Barkley has always been outspoken, and never been one to be apologetic for his past, unless he did something to harm someone. But out and out admitting he took money from agents when he was in college is pretty much flying in the face of everything that is going on with college athletics right now. He thinks Reggie Bush was stupid for giving back anything, and he recognizes and freely admits that agents are heavily involved with college athletes.

Is he right? Should this just be a case of a kid getting whatever they need or want until they can pay someone back? Is it all just as simple as that? If Charles is right, and it doesn't matter, then why is there so much turmoil? Are agents worse than psychotic parents who make bigger messes of things than professionals do? Maybe we need a "fess-up" day where everyone can admit what they have done in the past without penalty, and get a fresh start? Make it like a Tax Amnesty program. One thing is for sure, when the Round Mound of Rebound talks, people are gonna stop and listen.
