Adidas-FBI ???
Is anyone concerned about the Adidas scandal and how it relates to our program? We got a sweet deal in 2015 from Adidas thanks to Keatts connections.

While I highly doubt we did anything to get the FBIs attention i am slightly concerned the NCAA in an attempt to show they are concerned about the issue will investigate a program like ours. The old saying that Eastern Kentucky is really going to get it because Kentucky screwed up hopefully won't apply here buy I feel that we would be an easy target due to our success, past connection to Louisville and sweet Adidas deal

We had a good Adidas deal before Buzz showed up and switched us to Jordan.

Even if we're implicated in some way, overall this is a good thing. It's high time to expose the scummiest aspects of this game we love.

I'd like to think we were at the level of recruiting and status where Adidas cared who played at UNCW...but they don't. These guys were looking at future NBA players, future contracts, etc.

Exactly. Could Keatts have been associated with the Losuisville corruption? Maybe but it was most likely that other assistant. I hope for him, he was not involved. Doubt he'd be connected during his time at UNCW.

The FBI has been collecting information for 2+ years. Phone conversations, witnesses, etc. They've got it all. Puts a smile on my face knowing just how many people involved in college basketball are collectively sh*tting their pants right now.

No more shoe money going to kids as early as 13 years old. No more bribery and corruption. No more one-and-done players, who of course were the biggest money-makers. Clean up the game.

SportsCenter just reported that Pitino expects to lose his job.

According to sources, Tom Jurich, Louisville AD, was asked to fire Rick Pitino, refused, both were fired

Im worried UNCW will be an easy target for an NCAA investigation. It's easy for NCAA to bully small schools like us and with the Louisville and Adidas connection along with the quick rise, it would be very easy to justify investigation. Even if nothing happened they could cloud the program with the under investigation tag
