    Before you read more, make a wild guess on the cost ESPN will have to pay for propagating false, injurious allegations about Sean Miller, Basketball Coach at the University of Arizona and a sought-after freshman player.

    The Chairman of the Board of the Regents of Arizona's Colleges led a team investigating the sports channel's charges. He called a press conference and completely vindicated Coach Miller of all accusations surrounding an alleged $100,000 offer having being made to an athlete as an incentive for him to begin his freshman year at the U, of A. Once again, these allegations have been proven to be totally untrue.

    Incredibly, ESPN said it still "stood by" its original story, whatever that means.

    There must be a thousand or more attorneys wishing they could represent Miller and the freshman athlete named by ESPN in a monumental lawsuit, and do so pro bono (without recompense).

    We haven't heard the last of this. One has to wonder who originated this vicious lie. Samuel Clemens, as writer Mark Twain, once said there are two kinds of lies: "Lies and Damned Lies." This certainly falls solidly within the domain of the latter. The source embellished the accusation with an additional story that Miller insisted that the money be routed through his hands. 

Stay tuned.
