    Paul Finebaum thinks Petrino's gonna bolt over this. With Petrino's track record, makes a lot of sense.

    Updated insider rumor: two ACC schools will be announced as soon as tonight. Miami and State seem to be the leading candidates. Also a mother of a recent duke commit (last few months) may be talking about a $150k "gift" to investigators. Stay tuned.

    I assume any recruit who accepted payola will not be playing college ball anywhere

    With how little he cared about coaching on the court the last 2 seasons, wouldn't surprise me if Gott stopped recruiting too and just started paying dudes so he could focus on chasing women

    my understanding of the NCAA makes it clear that this isn’t a big issue since the bribes were also available to non-athletes.

    On Tuesday, the FBI announced that 10 people, including four college basketball assistant coaches, were arrested as part of a three-year investigation into bribes and other corruption in the sport.

    Assistant coaches from Arizona, Auburn, Louisville, Miami, Oklahoma State and USC were implicated in the investigation, and on Wednesday, Louisville announced that athletic director Tom Jurich and longtime basketball coach Rick Pitino were placed on administrative leave.

    Joon H. Kim, acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, told reporters that the investigation was ongoing. There might be additional arrests and more schools involved.

    Court records and sealed complaints released by the U.S. Attorney's office reveal an elaborate, clandestine FBI investigation that involves wiretaps, surveillance video, undercover agents and cooperating witnesses. Here is a look at some of the findings:

    First the coaches ...

    On May 6, 2016, Louis Martin "Marty" Blazer III, a Pittsburgh-based financial adviser, was charged by the Securities and Exchange Commission with wire fraud and accused of siphoning $2.35 million from the accounts of several professional athletes in order to invest in movie projects and make Ponzi-like payments. According to the SEC's complaint, when its examiners uncovered the unauthorized withdrawals and asked Blazer to explain them, he lied and produced falsified documents in an attempt to hide his misconduct...
    This is a long fascinating article.

    Just read some of the details about Nassir Little, and what was shaping up to be a bidding war between Miami/Adidas vs Arizona/Nike. Sounds like some shit could hit the fan for those involved. And has already hit it for the Adidas people involved.
