Oklahoma freshman Keith "Tiny" Gallon received a $3,000 wire transfer from a sports agent before the start of the season, according to a TMZ.com story filed early Thursday.

TMZ.com reported it has in its possession a document showing the transfer came from Jeffrey Hausinger (a Merril Lynch financial adviser who represents professional athletes) and was deposited into an account held by Gallon and his mother, Sylvia Wright. TMZ.com did not publish the document.

Gallon averaged 10.3 points and 7.9 rebounds this season. He was suspended for the Feb. 13 game against Oklahoma State for undisclosed reasons. CBSSports.com, at the time, asked OU coach Jeff Capel if the suspension was because of possible dealings with an agent. Capel said it was not.

An attempt to reach Capel early Thursday was unsuccessful.

Are you sure Wall took his own SAT test?

If Kentucky wins this year they will have their NCAA Banner taken down just like at Memphis and UMass! And, Ca$lpar$ hears no evil, sees no evil and speaks no evil!

Thanks for your thorough research into this matter. You clearly have presented a rock solid case with evidence that is absolutely irrefutable. After reading your in-depth thoughts, anyone with any degree of intelligence will be convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt...Capel's guilt is undeniable.

You're amazing. I'm sure the media is clammering for the opportunity to broadcast your keen insights coast to coast.

HUH????  Have you not seen Aldrich and the Morris twins.  Heck, I would give KU the advantage over Kentucky in that area.

What do I do?  I go out and get MYSELF a job and earn some money so I can go out.  Don't give me this garbage.  I worked full-time to put myself through college.  Why should he be any different?  Because he has athletic skills.  I'm sure there is a McDonalds on the campus that he could go flip burgers at to make some spending money.  The guy is getting all his books, room & board and tuition paid for by the school including living expenses (which includes dorm food).  It may not be the greatest, but he's got it pretty easy. 

I have no sympathy for this athlete, and he's old enough to know what he was doing was wrong.  Shame on his mother for not stopping this and telling him that he was jeopardizing his future.

This is the problem; everybody makes excuses for them.  Nobody was feeling bad for me and trying to give me free money when I was struggling to pay my tuition.  I worked full time at one job, and part time at another while I went to school full-time so I could have money to do things with my friends.  My folks were not rich, and by no stretch could afford to just support me blindly.

Its great that he has a scholarship, free education, allowance or whatever else they may give him but who said that the money he took directly benefited him.  The money he took could have helped take care of his family's house payment, car payment, other bills or even provided them a nice Christmas.  Debating wether he needed the money or not is ridiculous because none of us know this kid's situation.  Whatever reason he took it doesnt make it right, but dont judge a man unless you have walked in his shoes.

After reading the article, I'm trying to figure out what in the hell this has to do with the University of Kentucky.  It appears that the young gentleman in question plays for Oklahoma.  Now, my geography may be a little rusty, but I'm fairly certain that Oklahoma and Kentucky are two separate states, with different universities.  Perhaps I simply didn't read it carefully enough ...
