    I want to hear what Mike Theus thinks of this situation. Are you here?

    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.
    90% of the NCAA is school and conference administrators. The full-time NCAA staff is overwhelmed and gets undue influence from the power schools and conferences on when and how to lay the lumber.

    If any non-power conference school had committed academic fraud to even half the level that North Carolina did, that's school's entire athletic program would either be shut down or crippled to the point where it couldn't compete.

    Pitino is probably going to jail now. Reports are saying that he kept 98% of the Adidas money. About 3 million, and the department received $35K. This is going to get UGLY!

    I seriously doubt Rick Pitino ends up in jail. Paying fines, making amends? Yes. But, jail? Nah.

    I think that was contractually arranged. Not a violation of law or NCAA rules (from the reporting I've seen).

    Didn't see that, but WOW, what a black mark on him. Another report says he has made $145 million off the contract over the past 9 years. That's just insane. I still say he is crooked as Hell.

    Re: Huge college basketball scandal exposed

    Depends on the wording of the contract and the accounting for it on both ends - that's where the DOJ comes in...

    And YES he could face significant jail time (albeit a federal country club) - just cause it's a business deal doesn't mean it's within the letter of the law

    And I figure ol' Slick Rick is just the kind to point fingers at the drop of a hat for a reduced sentence

    I would love to be a fly on Cal's wall right now

    Keep in mind that as recently as 20 years ago the shoe/clothing deals were done directly with the coaches. The school wasn't involved at all. Back in the day, Leon had his own deal with Adidas that paid him $100,000 per year and outfitted the team. That's how the system worked. The school didn't see any of it.

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out. At a minimum I think Rick is out of touch with reality in that he is insisting he is being dismissed without cause and is owed tens of million of dollars. It's the kind of thing that could get under the skin of a young assistant U.S. Attorney who is looking to make a name for himself. If I were Rick I would very quietly fade into retirement.

    Well, this story got knocked off the front page quickly by the Vegas shooting fiasco. The world has rightfully been so consumed with the Las Vegas shooting story that this basketball scandal is already been forgotten in many quarters.

    The NCAA announced today that North Carolina will receive no penalties in the academic fraud case. This is because the bogus courses were available to the entire student body not just the student-athletes. Must be nice to be a Carolina Blue Blood today. What a nice advantage this provided for years.

    That's truly remarkable.
