    Could this be the end of the One & Done dynasties?

    I think this will just distribute the wealth (Players) more evenly among the $ schools. Probably won't help us much.

    No, it will effect everyone -

    I do think this will force the NBA to change the one and done and probably adopt the baseball model

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    I'm glad to see this happening. It's about time.

    The NCAA is just as corrupt as the schools and coaches. There was just too much money involved for the NCAA to do anything other than look the other way.

    Re: Huge college basketball scandal exposed

    Louisville was pretty obvious when the news broke. I wonder how long it will take for this to unspool enough that we get an idea of how big the impact will be. A few days...a couple week's, a month or more.

    Although contracts may be different, no buy outs should be required if fired for illegal activity. This could save the schools big bucks.

    "Termination For cause"

    https://www.thebalance.com/what-is-t...-cause-2061656

    Reasons an employee could be terminated for cause include, but are not limited to, stealing, lying, failing a drug or alcohol test, falsifying records, embezzlement, insubordination, fraud, felonious conduct, disclosing private, confidential information or trade secrets, deliberately violating company policy or rules, and other serious misconduct related to your employment.
    An example of the "for cause" language is on Pages 9 and 10 of Bill O'Brien's old contract at Penn State: http://www.psu.edu/ur/2012/openness/OBrien_contract.pdf

    Here is Rick Pitino's contract with the University of Louisville: http://media.bizj.us/view/img/855604...t-contract.pdf

    Based on Sections 6.1.2 and 6.1.3 (Termination for Just Cause), the escort sex scandal alone probably would have been enough to fire Pitino without the university having to pay out the contract.

    Re: Huge college basketball scandal exposed

    Under Armour has made major investments in college basketball in recent years. In 2016, the company made a $280 million agreement to replace Adidas as the UCLA men's basketball team's shoe and apparel sponsor for the next 15 years. Under Armour has also cut deals in recent deals with teams including Notre Dame, Auburn, and Wisconsin.
    This is long overdue. And did you notice the FBI is controlling this investigation, not the NCAA?

    College basketball recruiting has been shady and crooked for a very long time. The year round basketball camps, the AAU teams, the "summer leagues", etc...have all turned college basketball recruiting into an out-of-control abyss. And as long as you've got companies like Adidas throwing $280M at college programs, the problem is not going away. Unless of course, people start going to prison for fraud and bribery.

    IMO, this is merely the tip of the iceberg. Rick Petino lost his job today at Louisville over this. (Technically Petino was put on leave, but his contract specifically states that the university can't fire him until he has had an official 10-day warning period before a firing. He's now in that 10-day period.) Look for more coaches --as well as some of these corporate employees at Adidas (and others) to go to jail.

    Fraud, bribery and other corruption charges is what happens when "non-financial" people (e.g., basketball coaches) get into the business of conducting financial transactions to influence player decisions. These people often violate the trust of young people and exert pressure where it shouldn't be allowed. I wouldn't be surprised to see some RICO charges (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) filed at some point down the line. There's a lot of people --a whole network of people-- involved in this, across many state lines. This is just one reason why the FBI is involved, and not the NCAA.
