Whoa!!! This is big!!! In fairness to Pearl & Auburn, Arizona & Sean Miller got swept up in this too, & Arizona is supposed to be one of the blue bloods in college basketball.

Sounds like there could be upcoming charges to Kentucky & Miami(FL) too!!! A real shame about Miami, because I thought that Larranaga was above cheating.

I think it is Louisville, not UK. Reports that UL paid $100K to Bowen to commit to the Cards.

I suspect these bribes having been going on for awhile funneled through these nonprofit youth leagues. Some of these youth league coaches are shady characters but have the connections in the community to get players and influence them.
