Quote:It’s unclear why charges were dropped against Augustine. A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan declined to comment. Augustine’s lawyers did not respond to a Courier Journal email seeking comment sent before 1 p.m. Monday.

Hopefully because he took a huge plea bargain deal, and ratted out loads of sleazeballs.
I thought the charges were dropped because he never gave the money to the recruit but kept it for himself.

It is absolutely insane how harsh SMU's penalty was, and a school like Louisville will probably get nothing despite clear proof of wrongdoing.

People forget how egregious SMU's violations were. It wasn't a rogue coach or even an entire athletic department, nor even a President who looked the other way. The board of trustees literally kept and distributed a slush fund for paying recruits and players. They were caught once and put on probation for it but thumbed their nose at the ncaa and kept doing it. People make them out to be the victims because it wrecked their program, but it was the worst case of lack of institutional control at the highest levels of a university administration that we've ever seen.

I think BM and Cataclysmo was referring to their sanctions a couple years ago, not the Death Penalty in the 1980s. SMU's indiscretion a few years ago pails in comparison to what Team 6 and others like them have done lately.

I would LOVE to see a ton of arrests/sanctions come down in the next three weeks. Get the cheaters out of this year's tournament.

In reality, the few sanctions will probably hit in about 4-5 years.
