I'd rather not compete for athletes who expect bribes. Having said that, I would like to see the program rank highly in the minds of recruits who are seeking intense player development, with a view to being NBA-ready. The program used to have that rep under a previous HC.

Kansas, Miami Fl, Indiana, former teams like UCLA and Notre Dame, etc. This is a huge investigation, and already linked with a lot of NCAA "untouchables".

Its interesting to see Auburn named--- they are an Under Armour school.

As an aside, how good does a recruit have to be to be offered bribes? One-and-done? McD All-American? Or is it more common than that?

Sounds like Adidas had an agreement that the athlete would sign with them after they completed college or were drafted.

So if a school, any school, were already on probation then the penalties should be far harsher than that of a first time offender or a first time in a long time offender, no? I mean the point of probation is basically a continuous warning to not f*ck up again or else it's game over? And with something this egregious, regardless of probation, the punishment would have to be severe anyway. So add this train wreck on to a school that's already on probation and what do you get? The Death Penalty.

BUT this is the NCAA, so that school on probation will turn out fine, but Bellarmine better get ready for colossal punishment.

Quote:The charging documents also allege that the defendants and an unnamed assistant coach from the Kentucky school devised a plan to pay another recruit, this one from the high school class of 2019, at a meeting in a Las Vegas hotel room that was surreptitiously videotaped by the FBI. The assistant coach from the Kentucky school was recorded as saying the scheme would have to be “low key” because the program already was on NCAA probation. The coach also was recorded giving Augustine, the AAU official, an envelope containing $12,700 in cash, which Dawkins said “will take care of July, of August.” The scheme was patterned after the one used for the other recruit, according to the charging document.

Louisville assistant coach is caught on video paying for a recruit. Said assistant coach specifically notes that they'd have to be careful because the program is already on probation. Current payment scheme was modeled after the previously successful scheme. Hate to say it but if that isn't death penalty worthy, I don't know what is.

The FBI will look at the history of everyone involved.
