Associate HC for USC.
Is the dirtiness of club BBall teams about to come to a screeching halt?
USC is one
Cocks or Trojans?
Certainly the Zona fans deserve an opportunity to hear the charges. And it's too early to know what nefarious shenanigans are alleged.
So this picture either is Zona's gift to the FBI or the FBI's gift to Sean "Don't Rush The Court" Miller.
This seems like it could be big.
Since the FBI actually got involved, presumably bigger than CSU's multitude of OPI's.
Any word yet on which apparel company? USC, Okie Lite and Arizona are all Nike schools. Auburn is UA.
They were among 10 people charged in New York City federal court. Others included managers, financial advisers and representatives of a major international sportswear company. The details will be discussed at a news conference on Tuesday afternoon.
In court papers, prosecutors said the FBI has since 2015 been investigating the criminal influence of money on charges and student-athletes who participate in intercollegiate basketball governed by the NCAA.
They said the probe has revealed numerous instances of bribes paid by athlete advisers, including financial advisers and associate basketball coaches, to assistant and associate basketball coaches to exert influence over student athletes.
Please, please, please get Phil Knight too.
Or Baylor's rape. SMH
I'm old enough to remember when I was a "shill" for CUMBB because I explained exactly why some recruits went elsewhere.
I'm old enough to remember Bobby Knight railing against stuff like this(specifically the shoe companies) in an ESPN interview back in the mid-90's when he was still at Indiana. The more things change.....
Well this is going to get interesting really fast. Directing payments to players or their families is an NCAA violation, if the Feds have enough evidence for arrests, the NCAA may not have many choices but to act in a very large way. Why oh why am I hoping for multiple death penalties here?
Hmm... since UofA is involved, I wonder if Verne Harris, James Breeding, or Randy McCall is also involved.
This might come in handy.
I'm just gonna say it: just what the **** are the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's Office in the SDNY doing wasting resources on this investigation? Jesus Christ, I could personally point them to tens of bankers who need to be investigated and prosecuted and they're bringing this sort of bull****? Weak ****ing sauce.
Here's a true story about your law enforcement professionals: several years ago I represented a guy charged along with others in a trademark counterfeiting case involving clothing. Thing is, all of them were Lebanese and spoke Arabic . . . and there was a wiretap. This means that within 5 years of 9-11, the FBI was paying Arabic speakers to listen to a wiretap intended to investigate whether these guys were selling fake Polo shirts. ****ing idiots!
This could get pretty ugly in Portland.
Props to them. That's just good hustle.
Pitino can't survie this can he?
My son played for a club team. They were not sponsored by any shoe company. Watching from the outside how much those shoe companies put into 13U and 14U bball was pretty eye opening. I can only imagine what happens at the 17U level...
So I haven't seen any actual Nike Execs implicated. Did I miss something?
