    This is serious stuff, not just strippers, hookers and $100k in cash. This guy went to an amusement park!!!

    Isnít THAT a fitting violation for a BYU player!

    Wow. The thing that gets me is the booster is a guy like so many fans at any other school. They donate to the school in order to get good seats, he happens to meet the player and they strike up a friendship. I bet the player didn't pay for everything, but this just seems silly compared to the Adidas/Agents trying to slide players' families money to establish relationships.

    So they vacated some wins in which they maybe went to the tournament, and put on probation and lose a scholly...who cares. Unless the probation includes not being able to go to the postseason, that's not really a penalty

    It was the last 2 years, so all they're vacating are NIT appearances at best.

    Technically, this means that the only loss Gonzaga had in 2016-17 was their national championship loss to North Carolina now.

    So in other words, who cares...this is barely news. The funniest part about this is byu complaining about it being "too harsh of a penalty"

    BYU did self-report to an extent; their self-imposed penalties included the loss of 1 scholarship and a $5,000 fine.

    What they're contesting is the 47 vacated wins.

    Glad to see no mention of Xavier here:

    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Book Richardson has taken a plea deal and pleaded guilty to one count of federal funds bribery. Faces up to 2 years of jail time, but expected to get much less. By doing this he will not face further trial and thus Sean Miller and Arizona can rest a little easier.

    What were the conditions of the plea? Did he have to provide information they can use for other prosecutions?
