    fake news would be my guess.

    edit: maybe not, apparently Auburn is involved?

    I have no idea which company it is. Corruption is such a broad term, too. I'm interested to hear the details of this.

    Looks like Auburn, USC, Oklahoma State, and Arizona have been implicated so far.

    Hopefully USC and zona get the death penalty, teach Jeter and Thornton what happens when you transfer out of Duke.

    On top of what they already have going on down there, what would this mean for their program? This could get very interesting very fast.

    I'd think if anyone was arrested at UK that there'd be 100 news stories by now.

    Ha, right? I am sure most feel that way until they see their school pop up. In that one tweet, my nervousness caused me to read "University of Kentucky" rather than "University in Kentucky," which turns out to be Louisville. Pitino is gone.

    Sounds like they funneled 100k this year for a prospect. Brian Bowen? If true UL needs the death penalty after hookergate too.

    It was really only a matter of time until Adidas got caught doing this. Kansas fans nervous yet? Wiggins had millions of reasons to go to KU.

    Ha, the Louisville program is finished. Kind of funny. I suppose UK could get busted too, though I would have to think Cal is smarter, but it does look like this shit is rampant, which I suppose is not surprising. Makes the "Kentucky's Shame" SI cover that every continually points to from 30 years ago look like child's play.

    We paid Wiggy enuf to keep shut.
    However, wouldn't bother me if this were the beginning "death blow" to the NCAA.... which I still think is (prob)a decade (+) away.
