This could get quite ugly! I bet there are a ton of people that are going to be holding their breath for a very long time until the dust settles.

Rumor is that Adidas was also paying kids to pick Adidas sponsored schools and then sign with Adidas after they left to play professionally.

Adidas schools include: KU, Louisville, Indiana, and UCLA

Rumor is that University #7 that paid $150k for a player is Miami (also an Adidas school).

But I thought we were the cheating Gooners? They're sparkly clean up there. There must be a mistake.

KU has nothing to fear. If the Jayhawks can come through the series of scandals unscathed that stunk up that program last year, chances are good this investigation will be no more than a minor annoyance.

That is most likely the case. However, one cannot overlook the bitterness of a teammate who discovers of another teammate getting paid when he did not get paid.

How does Louisville not end up getting the death penalty for this?

Capel's been gone long enough that anything that may have happened during his tenure wouldn't have been found out in this investigation?

CBS article ...
https://www.cbssports.com/college-ba...ption-charges/

Quote:
"We got lucky on this one," Pitino said at the time. "I had an AAU director call me and say, 'Would you be interested in a basketball player?' I said ... 'Yeah, I'd be really interested.' But [Bowen and his people] had to come in unofficially, pay for their hotels, pay for their meals. So we spent zero dollars recruiting a five-star athlete who I loved when I saw him play. In my 40-some-odd years of coaching, this is the luckiest I've been."
Rick Pitino has always been such a lucky fellow.

Quote:
The United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York announced early Tuesday that a press conference will be held at noon ET to detail charges of fraud and corruption in college basketball against four current assistant coaches -- Arizona's Emanuel "Book" Richardson, Auburn's Chuck Person, Oklahoma State's Lamont Evans and USC's Tony Bland. Managers, financial advisers and representatives of a major international sportswear company are also involved.

The four basketball coaches were arrested late Monday.
I wonder if they were arrested on-campus at their basketball offices. That would have been quite a scene.

If the only company involved is Adidas, we wouldn't have been involved. Haven't we always been with Nike?

One bright spot for osu: they were referred to as a "top tier basketball program" by the U.S. District Attorney during his press conference! So they can play the video to recruits! hahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!

I wonder if there could be former assistants who aren't currently coaching charged?

Quote:
Using a “cooperating witness” who is described as operating an athlete management business (a financial planner who handled the money for pro athletes), the FBI was able to get an undercover agent into hotel rooms, meetings and deals. In 2016, the cooperating witness was accused of committing securities fraud, according to the complaints, and presumably flipped after that. The details are overwhelming.

One case among many in the three complaints, which total nearly 200 pages, states adidas’ Gatto, financial planner Munish Sood and agent Christian Dawkins “conspired to illicitly funnel approximately $100,000 from company-1 to the family of Player-10, an All-American high school basketball player; to assist one or more coaches at University-6, a school sponsored by Company-1, and to further ensure that Player-6 ultimately retained the services of Dawkins and Sood and signed with Company-1 upon entering the NBA.

“The bribe money was structured in a manner so to conceal it from the NCAA and officials at University-6 by among other things having Company-1 wire money to a third party consultants who them facilitated cash payments to Player-10s family.”

The indictments suggest a mountain of evidence from recordings, written communications, corroborating testimony, financial data footprints and the undercover FBI agent.
