LOUISIANA La. - The investigation continues.

Into what, we are still trying to figure out.

A couple of weeks ago, it was reported in the Times-Picayune that Ragin Cajun forward Anthony Johnson was seen driving around in a Cadillac Escalade, and could be a violation of NCAA rules.

We in the media here in Lafayette all saw Johnson riding around in that automobile, and just like any good reporter, we all asked where did he get it from.

The answer was clear, and everyone that covers the University of Louisiana's basketball program on a regular basis was satisfied with the answer: his girlfriend bought it and he just happens to drive it.

No need to investigate this accusation. No need to call in an outside investigator to find out if there is any wrongdoing on the part of the basketball coaching staff.

But for some reason, the school felt there was a need to investigate. We all know that it is mainly because of what happened in the early 1970's with this program.
