At least when all this is old news, Andy Enfield will still have a smokin' hot wife.

On page one of the Kentucky search is a recent (6/17) story where Bam Adebayo just signed a lucrative contract with Nike now that he has turned pro. Perhaps that's just a coincidence.

I already see a lot of posts suggesting that Rick Pitino and Bruce Pearl are now toast. The presumption is, of course, that how could they not know what is going on with their prized recruits.

I haven't yet heard anyone express concern that Coach Cal or Coach K could be in jeopardy. I guess the one and done kids they recruit don't need the money, and don't mind that their AAU teammates are getting paid and they aren't.

This story won't have much impact if it's just the Bruce Pearls of the basketball world that pay the price. But what if it touches the golden boys? What if it touches Coach K - or worse, what if it touches Nick Saban?

Kansas is an Adidas school.

Everyone knew AAU ball was a mess. But once the shoe companies are involved, there's a LOT of money and probably a LOT of schools involved. I think the shoe companies are what make this huge.

Surmising on a message board that players on other perennial winning teams are paid doesn't get us to "jeopardy", which in this case would be the feds having the same hard evidence that is reflected in these indictments. We can assume that many players on such teams are paid and that their coaches are involved, and we might be correct, but those assumptions are a long way away from videotaped meetings and bag men wearing wires for the FBI. The prosecutors and FBI had to do a helluva lot of good, hard work to get to this point on the folks who are "in jeopardy" right now.

The fact that the FBI now has hard evidence against some of the participants in this case gives them a lot of leverage. At some point, one or more of these guys is going to decide he's not going to be the fall guy, and he will flip in exchange for either immunity or a light sentence. That has to be making a lot of people nervous right now.

We may have to watch that Adidas sponsors D2 and D3 schools. One school that is in trouble with money issues is UC-Merced. If anybody from that school was involved? They could go down.

Presbyterian is also sponsored by the same company.

How ridiculous can you be? Like Adidas is paying for recruits to go to Merced or Presbyterian. Leave financials matters to to David St, as he'll be a major corporate executive or university official some day.

So, the answer to the OP is - deeper than any of us ever imagined....

Well, with the money issues, I would not be surprised UC-Merced could stoop so low to save their programs to stay in the NCAA.

As the original post said, how deep this scandal could go.

when even NoDak is calling you out for being ridiculous, perhaps you should take a step back and disengage from the Google machine...01-wingedeagle
