    "Making and concealing bribe payments"...that's not good for the schools involved. That can gut programs. Hope we don't get dragged into this somehow with the connection to Book. Who knows how far back this goes.

    Me thinks this is going to be a HUGE story. From what little I've read, and I can't tell for sure, but it looks like they were funneling large sums of cash to players' families, via Adidas, for commitments. We'll see.

    Edit- Via Adidas and Nike.

    Louisville coach Rick Pitino was asked about Bowen's commitment in June.
    "We got lucky on this one," Pitino said at the time. "I had an AAU director call me and say, 'Would you be interested in a basketball player?' I said ... 'Yeah, I'd be really interested.' But [Bowen and his people] had to come in unofficially, pay for their hotels, pay for their meals. So we spent zero dollars recruiting a five-star athlete who I loved when I saw him play. In my 40-some-odd years of coaching, this is the luckiest I've been."

    Wow... that says it all right there. "We paid zero dollars"... "This is the luckiest I've been"... If it's too good to be true it often is. This is going to be the thing that FINALLY brings down slick Rick.
    I'm not saying I'm happy about it, as a Xavier fan, obviously as long as there's someone in the head coach position at Louisville with a last name something different than Mack then that's one less thing to worry about, but I'm certainly not a fan of Ricky. He's always seemed like a mafia type. Jesh, I just keep reading that statement over and over again and think what a slimeball he is. He MUST have known.
    Gosh this business is getting corrupt... perhaps it always has been and I'm naive, but wow... I hope this is limited in scope and is not the new norm on how recruiting happens.
    I have complete faith in coach Steele and Co.

    the only thing that would make this better is if Lavar ball was the initial whistle blower, pissed that no shoe company would go in with him on big baller brand, so he exposed them
