    Louisville basketball boards are in full meltdown.

    Yes, that is how the Feds work. So, who was "patient zero"?

    Re: NBC News: Several NCAA Assistant Coaches Arrested by FBI

    aub fans can take comfort in the fact that auburn university as a whole and Bruce Pearl in particular have a pristine reputation and have no history of ncaa issues, especially where transferring funds to players are concerned

    Also, not like they had a player linked to point shaving a few years ago

    Thing to remember that this isn't an NCAA investigation (which is near certain to follow). This is the FBI looking into bribery and corruption. They have the power of the subpoena.

    Auburn, USC, and others better hope their entire athletic department is clean because they are about to get a colonoscopy.

    I don't think we're paying 100K to recruits. Not sure what you consider "similar things." Sure, we have the minor infractions that we self report like all schools do but this is way above and beyond that. Did we even sign a single 5* recruit under Grant? Maybe Trevor Lacey but I can't recall many other highly rated recruits that signed with us meanwhile AU is pulling in recruiting classes akin to the classes Ole Miss signed when Freeze was there..

    "Similar things" means doing stuff on a smaller scale as to what is mentioned in the complaints.

    This stuff has been rumored for years. The FBI was able to uncover it all because it has subpoena power the NCAA doesn't. No Power 5 team is clean of this. None.

    I think it could be a good thing in the long run. College basketball in general is in dire need of an enema.
    Just a barner.
    Auburn attempted 40 3 pointers while Tennessee only attempted 15. This kills the one seed.
