    One thing about it, you can no longer criticize one and done without including Duke. Especially if Bagley is ruled eligible by the NCAA.

    Considering Louisville was already in trouble for Hookergate this might be SMU bad.

    I agree with Boston Red in that this may be enough to get Pitino out. As a UK fan though I'm not celebrating this one. Could happen down 64 next and names aren't done being dropped.

    A tweet just went out saying this is huge. More names will coming out and much bigger than just assistant coaches. I'm like WVRed I ain't celebrating nothing on this. It could hit down the road in Lexington and at the very least it is very bad for all of college basketball.

    I dunno. I'm no UK fan but it sure doesn't seem like they need to pay players to come there especially since many of them are only there for a year or so and Cal usually gets his pick of the litter. But the boosters there have done it before so nothing would shock me.

    Yea, I have long wondered how Cal did it. UK recruits itself, but the guy has brought in a ton of big name recruits year in year out. One has to wonder if everything is on the up and up. Not casting stones, just wondering.

    Sure, but neither of those guys were in a pay for play scandal. Camby accepted money from agents and Rose had problems with his ACTs or SATs. I'm no UK fan but if Cal was involved with something shady at UMass and Memphis, there hasn't been a whiff of corruption since he's been at UK. He's like Saban, he doesn't need to cheat. He's got kids begging to go there. If Kid A goes to Duke or Kansas or Carolina, on to Kid B who may be just as good.

    This won't be limited to just Adidas schools.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Selling NBA players like John Wall, Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Karl Anthony Towns, and the 20+ others (!) thriving in the NBA would seem to sell both UK and Calipari without paying money.

    That said, if one school is paying big-time money and not receiving all the biggest recruits, then it's safe to assume all others are as well. tOSU, IU, Duke. All of them.

    I don't think it is limited to the Adidas schools. However, if that is where their smoking gun led, they could be the only ones getting in trouble.

    Regardless of which schools are implicated, I hope the NCAA acts quickly and suspends them from post season consideration. I don't want to see another team win a championship that more than likely will come down (UNC.)

    Death penalty is being floated around.

    I don't think Bob Ley meant for this to come out this way, but it is kinda funny all things considered:

    This is pretty bad IMHO.
    "This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S.

    By non-UK fans?

    I don't think NCAA will hand down the death penalty to any program again.
