 NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -Jerry Tarkanian still pulls no punches when talking about the NCAA.
The former UNLV coach said Monday he thinks the college sports governing body is ``the crookedest organization in our society,'' drawing several laughs during a luncheon at the Downtown Tip-Off Club in North Little Rock, Ark.
NCAA spokesman Erik Christianson said in an e-mail that Tarkanian's comments were ``off-base and ridiculous.''
Tarkanian was dogged by NCAA investigations through his career and he sued the organization in 1992. The two settled for $2.5 million in 1998.
The former coach also shared more-pleasant memories, including his UNLV team's 1991 visit to Arkansas. Unbeaten UNLV was ranked No. 1 at the time, and the Razorbacks were No. 2. In front of a raucous crowd at Barnhill Arena, UNLV won 112-105.
