RE: Adidas-FBI ???
On occasion I have wondered how anyone could be so close to the program and yet have no information about what was going on. As someone suggested earlier wait until the canaries start singing and it may get very interesting, no guilty party will likely escape this mess.

Under investigation for what? Money was exchanging hands so they could get their hooks in future NBA players. Sorry, but we don't rate that sort of attention.

If anyone has read the reports, the two schemes were out of our league. NC State is one I'm watching in the state of NC. Gottfried was desperate.

Yow was/is also desperate to hang on to her job. Good point.

When you're bad at your job, you're always desperate.

This is a similar concept to people discussing if the top soccer clubs in Europe will breakaway to only play each other and not the rest of the top 18 or 20 clubs in their country. By breaking away and facing harder competition, clubs will get worse records. Likewise, it will be harder for Duke to start a season 12-0 or 11-1 out of conference if they could only play opponents in the best conferences. The Men's Basketball Selection Committee already treats teams from the best conferences better than their RPI.

Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens went on trial and were found not guilty. Rich people can get fired and embarrassed, but you can't ever take for granted that a rich person will get convicted. That's how our criminal justice system is.

True. We don't really have a Criminal Justice system. We have a LEGAL system, and those who can afford the best lawyers have the best shot at winning battles in court.

Father of ex-Louisville star: I was offered $100K from rival

His first part about how when he first began talking to NCAA coaches he told them he wasn't interested in compensation... that's telling. That means a large amount of schools/recruiters are out there offering compensation. If you have to tell them that upfront, that's quite indicative of a large-scale NCAA problem.
