Grayhound Banned from Final Week of Picks

5

The NCAA is investigating allegations of impropriety in the number one picker's selections. Some have claimed that a friend of Grayhound shopped his/her services with unsavory elements in Las Vegas among the picking services. These entanglements with professional agents have tainted the integrity of the amateur picks process. Therefore, Grayhound will endure a one week suspension while the NCAA investigates the matter, according to material posted on Rocky Top Talk this morning. There is some question whether Grayhoud will be permitted to participate in a much-anticipated basketball pool hosted by the premier site on SB Nation, Rocky Top Talk. Grayhound indicated that basketball is a different sport and should not be affected by a potential ban in football. Others on the RTT board, such as memphispete, claim that "a professional picker is a professional in all sports and that professional should be banned, so as not to sully the purity of amateurism." So, enjoy your week off, Grayhound, while the rest of us try to catch up.
