FBI Corruption Investigation

Recommended Posts

You would hope the NCAA finally grows some cajones and does the right thing but I'm not holding my breath.
Kansas has been charged with lack of institutional control, three Level 1 violations in men’s basketball and there is a head coach responsibility charge against coach Bill Self, according to multiple sources. There also are allegations against football, sources added, although those are Level 2 violations. 
https://sports.yahoo.com/sources-kansas-basketball-charged-with-multiple-level-1-violations-including-lack-of-institutional-control-210015300.html

I expect Kansas to get probation, loss of scholarships, loss of recruiting days, and maybe a single postseason ban. I expect Self to get suspended for 12 games. LSU, Zona, and Louisville I expect more from. Taunting or being previously on probation hasn’t worked well in the past. Amateurism is the only thing the NCAA cares about. We are 9-12 months out from the penalty phase. 90 days for them to submit their response. From there the NCAA will submit their findings. Then the appeals. 3 level 1s is one hell of a strong way to come out. Plus it’s not like the NCAA has to do much. It’s all recorded in the court. Gonna be a fun couple of years. The Kansas fans on their boards are feeling about how you would expect.

I'd rather the NCAA remain focused on giving a program a death sentence because of texting...oh wait that was legal like two years later.  Move along, nothing to se ehere with the Chosen one's in the NCAA cheating.  Makes many of Crean's comments make sense now

The NCAA didn't give us a death sentence, we did that to ourselves. If you want to be mad at anyone, be mad at our administration. They've been scared sh*tless of the NCAA ever since Brand worked there.

Maybe Adidas will throw some love (see cold hard cash) at recruits to attend IU now! (Oh wait...)

See, this is interesting. I’d say Louisville and Kansas were the top two Adidas programs willing to play ball, but we’ve also seen that Adidas understands Indiana’s brand value and that you don’t always need the college program to be at all complicit.

I’ll say it again, but Romeo was a UL recruit, and then Kansas and Indiana. The Vanderbilt consideration just never fit, in my opinion...

Adidas took great care of the Langford’s. There is zero doubt about that. Glad we didn’t end up in a mess because of it.

That’s our luck though normally, we have 1/8 the shade of other bluebloods and it bites us in the arse.

With all the Adidas mess, it was a perfect time to tell them to hit the road I think. They have gotten so bad with apparel and their shoes. I tried Adidas to my fullest... just didn’t work. My Pumas on the other hand....

Definitely agree on the Pumas!

So I didn’t hear their case is based on Gassnola being a booster to KU. Since he specifically did things for KU they said in their notice that made him a booster and the act illegal as well. I’ll take the bumper stickers. Their Rival board is expecting the hammer. Their biggest debate is whether or not they get a postseason ban. There are some that think they can fight him being a booster based on the loose definition. Good luck with that.

Funny how the Nike schools are walking away free... it’s as if Arizona were just the fall guy since they are a rival to Oregon.

Yes the FBI agents sat in their office with sharpie pens marking X’s on jerseys in their offices while laughing hysterically every time someone was caught on tape. I completely agree.

 

Edit: This would be a hilarious sight to see and I would pay to see it.

Well, I'd say there's one less program we have to worry about when it comes to recruiting.

Zero chance anyone ranked highly in the 2020 class commits there now under this cloud.

I'd like to believe this is true but I've become pretty cynical about college recruiting. As long as Self is there, he will land some high level guys in 2020.

I fully believe Nike would would go all out to pull something like this off. Shoe business is pretty wild these days.

I’m also cynical until I see actual, meaningful results/actions. A cloud has also been hanging over AZ and the Ville but their recruiting has suffered so much that AZ has the 6th best 2019 class and the Ville has the 12th ranked class in 2019.
