This is when it is good to be a fan of a mid-major. I suspect there are much problems here mostly at the high major level.

The tip of the iceberg.

North Carolina walked scott free after being caught red handed, cheating for 20+ years.
Let's see some big time coaches get fired. Until then, I'll assume it'll all get swept under the rug after years of lawsuits, finger pointing, misdirection, and covering up.

MAYBE a few low level guys/programs get 'punished' so everyone can pretend it was just a few rogue actors.

Just a microcosm of society in general.

Just went through the article lightly, but I think Louisville is in trouble for a 2nd time...

"Court papers say at least three top high school recruits were promised payments of as much as $150,000 — using money supplied by Adidas — to attend two universities sponsored by the athletic clothing company. Court papers didn’t name the schools but contained enough details to identify them as Louisville and Miami."

Dear Friends,
Is there a death penalty for college basketball? It seems like these situations seem to come more with college basketball then football.

Some want Louisville to get the death penalty. That program has had problems, problems, problems...

There's an Ypsi kid on that team. Maybe he should just come home and play for EMU.

I don't see him. I wonder if the kid went elsewhere...

BTW, the kid named in the scandal is Bowen. The Louisville paper named him based on the description of events by the FBI and what is known about his recruitment.
