This looks like a big scandal:

I quit following College BB on a regular basis when the one and done era began, but this looks like Rick Pintino is dead man walking.

Yeah, I’m sure more people are going down as this one develops.

Lots involved.  Lot of former players, coaches, etc from all different schools.  This one could get messy.

USCjr former coach involved, does this mean they might vacate their final 4 since he recruited Sindarius Thornwell and P.J. Dozier while at USCjr and accepting bribes at this point???

And possibly the USC wbb title. Sure, the wbb would be given much less but the NCAA will nail your ass for taking a dollar.

This is going to be juicy.  Especially knowing given Clemson’s lack of success we are probably safe.  The Cocks are nervous as they should be.  They may not even be a basketball school in the end.

LOL! Yeah, I don’t think we’ve raised any suspicion.

This is a huge scandal and at the same time a yawn. The only reason it is happening is the FBI rolled a finance guy on Wall Street and he started talking about other issues.

Shoe companies paying players and coaches???? Say it ain’t so.

There is gambling in this establishment? Shocked I tell you. Shocked.

I have a feeling once this investigation is over, college basketball will be stripped to it’s wires.

Who knows, maybe the one-and-done rule will go away and we will get back to college BB players actually having to attend college for 2-3 years and get something of an education.

I think the Fed’s are going to treat College BB like the Red Wedding:

Maybe but I just don’t think the amateur model without direct and immediate access to the pros can be kept clean.

Too much money and in basketball there is almost an immediate payoff to the “investor.”

I know you want Carolina to be involved with this so you can rub it in my face but I don’t think they will be because Roy runs a clean program and wins with upperclassmen. Bradley was the first one and done in a decade in Chapel Hill and was a complete surprise to be one. There is a reason that John Wall was never seriously recruited by Carolina despite wanting to be. Roy wouldn’t deal with former Clemson player Dwon Clifton who was Wall’s handler.

Duke to me is like Alabama…they don’t need to be dirty due to their success and coach recruiting for themselves but I imagine they aren’t saints either. How Kentucky is not involved in this is beyond me.

I’ve been wondering about Kentucky too.  Hasn’t Calipari been followed by the NCAA to his last few gigs?

Oh yeah…and he gets all the players who would have these kind of under the table shoe deals.

They know how to get away with it at Kentucky though.
