King is still in school. The trainer is now gone. King would probably go back on the team, if his problem was the trainer.

What's their negative track record? I don't recall any issues at the school.

A few examples

In 2000, a Daily Cardinal reporter discovered that UW had photoshopped the face of a black student into the cover photo for the 2001-2002 application booklet.

In 2016, a Sellery resident posted photos of Adolf Hitler and swastikas on his dorm room door.

In 2017, the sacred fire circle at Dejope Residence Hall was vandalized with the words “Columbus Rules 1492.”

In 2018, a student filed a hate-bias complaint due to the inclusion of two UW alumni’s names in various spaces in Memorial Union — despite the fact that they were members of a student society that took on the name Ku Klux Klan.

Last spring, a “Make America White Again” and “Mass immigration is white genocide” stickers were plastered on campus light posts.

This fall, the university's homecoming committee took down a two-minute promotional video that featured no students of color

Telling a story, and quoting another person (who may have been black for all we know) who used the n-word is racist?  Look, I agree it is dumb to do that and he should have either not told the story or substituted "n-word", but come on!  Unless there were previous incidents of racist behavior with Helland, this is just an apology and promise not to do it again and move on.

I disagree on the severity but agree it shouldn't be a career ender (assuming Helland is telling the truth).

All this being said,  Helland wasn't fired,  he resigned. And if im reading the articles correctly, the investigation into the allegation is still ongoing, which means this wasn't a forced resignation, it was voluntary. If Helland is telling the truth,  preemptively resigning seems like an odd move
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Photoshopping African-American students onto brochures to show diversity, an incident at a football game a few years ago where someone was walking the aisles with Obama in a noose and a video this past October before homecoming touting diversity that showed almost all white students in it.  It’s not major stuff but it doesn’t need to be to have a perception formed. 

And fair or not, the diversity of the basketball team and style they play is perceived as a bit Hoosier-y

Bingo.

I hope the Bad News Bears isn’t playing anytime soon on campus.

This is like the episode of The Office Diversity Day

The Michael Scott Chris Rick impersonation was the first thing that popped in my mind.

That's a good point, though I wonder how much he was "encouraged" to resign.

Good old Hoiberg Hilton.  No Marquette transfers for him to go after*, so he just moves up 94.

UW heads are going to explode if he gets a waiver.

a waiver probably won't be necessary.  The one time transfer exception for basketball is likely to be passed soon.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

a few are but I was surprised at how many were rather diplomatic about the article.

And, and I still don't understand why people read other teams' boards and get worked up over what's on there...
