Saying nothing to the NCAA can only help. Lying to the NCAA might help you keep your job because things are hard to prove. Saying nothing to the FBI will get you more time and lying to the FBI is a whole new charge. Once they all lawyer up...this gets a lot bigger.

There is one thing the FBI loves more than anything.....high profile names. Asst coaches don't fit that billing. Their bosses do.

The FBI has become a politicized institution at the national level. Probable three year 'show cause' for the assistants and everybody washes their hands of the whole affair.

I'm telling you the IRS will get involved in this and the NCAA won't be able to sweep it under the rug like they did with Alabama. All of these top programs will not tolerate being punished in any way by them. So the P 5 will go their own way. Many of the lower 'hangers on' will be cut back and left out in the cold and we will have semi-pro college sports.

The IRS would only look at the money that has been received (by the coaches, players, etc.) to ensure taxes have been paid on that income. The dollars here aren't that big and the actors have much more to worry about around the corruption and illegality of their actions. The major institutions (i.e. universities) didn't receive any money directly; though there might be an argument having a high sports profile could be monetized, but that would be a stretch.

No, the FBI is the proper federal agency to investigate interstate and/or international corruption charges. The NCAA will simply take a step back and allow the case(s) to unfold.

Pat Forde has said Louisville needs to be given the death penalty. Used to be their beat writer before he got a national gig.

Of course Gary Parrish would never say the same thing about Memphis.

Not familiar with Albert Means; what were the circumstances of his case?

this is one of the best things that could happen for the "Group of 5". this will certainly roll over into football. at the VERY least....some of the payments to these recruits will be fewer and for less amounts.
