    I would be surprised if there is much of any punishment handed down from NCAA for ay of this. It’s too far reaching and the schools named are too big. Schools will fire assistant coaches named in this because they need scapegoats.

    Now whwre things change a bit are the legal ramifications. These cases are being pursued by the FBI as wire fraud. I wouldn’t be surprised to see some felony plea agreements handed out. I, for one, would be disappointed to see any athletes get charged if coaches/schools are not prosecuted.

      Pitino had a slew of other sleazy issues both on the court and on at least one restaurant table after a coaching staff dinner. As Shockm alluded to, it was an excuse to get rid of high profile trouble. Having the assistant who was on”look out” while he banged a waitress, marry the knocked up one night stand, as a cover up shows the extent of Pitino’s dark energy and control over the Louisville community.

    Rick Pitino just became a scape goat? Wow. Things change quickly.

      Why did Coaches from Louisville, Auburn, and Arizona get fired then? Where did the story regarding Zona’s Head Coach being recorded wanting payments to come through him? If nothing happened, FBI and media heads should roll.
      Immediate overreaction. Pitino is already talking about making a return to coaching and it wouldn't surprise me if he did. You already have media heads spinning this as the schools being victims. Poor KU might have to give back some NCAA shares because Adidas defrauded them by buying Jackson.

        Pitino’s firing didn’t stem from only this. They also had the prostitution scandal. An assistant was fired for that. At some point Louisville had to hold him accountable for “not being aware” of what his assistant were doing in the name of recruiting.

          It's not Jackson in question. It's Preston and de Sousa. So that final 4 is getting vacated

            I’m also skeptical anything happens. Miller is still employed. Izzo is still employed. As of now, Pitino is only HC to lose job (watch him get hired too).

              If the NCAA ever gets around to doing anything about this, I expect they will require WSU to vacate their win over KU because KU was using ineligible players.

                Izzo is on the hot seat because of the rape story that just came out. Lots of everything is is about to hit the fan at MSU

                    Losing de Sousa along with Newman and possibly Nigerian could be a huge hit they didn't see coming. Now I agree this probably means nothing as far as NCAA sanctions against the program.

                      I expect the NCAA to do SOMETHING if for no other reason than to try and save face to some degree; they look like massive puppets now, and they know that to survive that perception has to change. However, I also expect them to play the Tarkanian game and vacate our wins with FVV and leave the Blues alone; after all, they know where there bread is buttered.

                          Nobody will get the death penalty. In fact all that i think will happen is some hands slapped, and the NCAA to say it really not the schools fault, but a problem requires reform where the P5 can actually pay the players legally.

                            De Sousa and whoever else took payments will ineligible going forward. It is interesting that the Billy Preston saga has gone quiet.

                              Somebody paid some kids to go to KU. That's the story.
