Hodgegate

Marc Amazon at 790 The Ball says something's gotta give between Herb Sendek and Julius Hodge.

In Amazon's view, Hodge, who says he was punished for missing a shootaround because he had an academic obligation, is basically accusing Sendek of placing basketball before academics. If Hodge's story isn't legit, then Sendek, who has a reputation for making his players hit the books, needs to call Hodge out.

Amazon's partner, Bill Kimm, came up with this scenario: Hodge missed the shootaround to fulfill an academic obligation he should have taken care of earlier, which would justify Hodge's bench time.

Tony Haynes was a guest on the show, and he said he knows nothing. It will be interesting to see if this blows up in the mainstream media tomorrow.
