    Probably don't want to waste your time with the AJC's take from Alan Judd. His description is that Pastner dropped his lawsuit against Bell and Pendley and in return they agreed to drop their lawsuit against Pastner. Judd's article also re-mentions items included in his article from a couple of weeks ago and mentions that Pastner's lawyers have tried to discredit Bell and Pendley.

    Judd also reiterates that Bell alleges that he was directed by Pastner to give players impermissible benefits.

    That is why I am hoping that there are some strong admissions included in the settlement so all of these speculative articles/viewpoints get put to rest. I hope they were able to get that in the settlement more than just everyone go home.

    Agree but he does need to serve some significant hard time for sure to serve notice to him and other nuts that this type of behavior will not be tolerated in college sports.

    Excerpt:
    A defamation lawsuit filed against the Star and one of its reporters has been dismissed.
    Ron Bell, of Oro Valley, accused the Star and reporter Caitlin Schmidt of making "false statements" in news reports about a legal fight between him and former UA assistant basketball coach Josh Pastner, according to the lawsuit filed in March in Pima County Superior Court.

    I grind my teeth thinking about the damage he did to our program. What a loathsome person.

    In that picture - why does his mother appear to be so upset? She got the flower behind her ear. What more she want?

    All true...but...ultimately it was our head coach that allowed him so much access to our basketball program

    Very surprised many let Pastner off the hook on this whole thing. Still seems a little suspicious to me.

    Only one I want is that he muffed it up in prison and has his sentence extended for another 10 years. He's lower than whale sh!t.

    Only thing Pastner is guilty of is naivete and being overly trustworthy of people. Yes, he has cost this program just as much as Rat Bell, but being a dope doesnt carry the same weight as a criminal offense

    You want to blame CJP about the reporter & newspaper in this dismissed case as well?

    The criminal aspect no, but I don’t for one minute believe he wasn’t aware of Bell giving players impermissible benefits. It just doesn’t add up...

    This was going on at the same time as the Labarrie stuff right? So we are to believe the head coach had no clue that all these guys involved and close to the program were breaking rules? Ok...now who is naive?

    Now I think he didn’t anticipate that the guy was a lunatic. But that doesn’t excuse his involvement if he knew about the stuff like I think he did.

    The NCAA cleared CJP and GT supported him during the process.

    You or I or anyone else can think whatever we want. It doesn't matter what we think.
