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

    U$Cw............

    "We were shocked to learn this morning through news reports about the FBI investigation and arrests related to NCAA basketball programs, including the arrest of USC assistant coach Tony Bland," USC athletic director Lynn Swann said in a Tuesday statement. "USC Athletics maintains the highest standards in athletic compliance across all of our programs and does not tolerate misconduct in any way. We will fully cooperate with the investigation and will assist authorities as needed, and if these allegations are true, we will take the needed action."
    OK, whatever.............

    Okie Lite:

    A criminal complaint quoted Evans in several instances bragging about his ability to steer the young athletes toward prospective agents and advisers, promising them that “every guy I recruit and get is my personal kid.”
    Evans said it was necessary to use his influence over the youngsters early in their college careers because many of them are “one and done,” meaning they play one or two years of college ball before joining the NBA, according to court papers.

    The first step was to pay off the player to go to a school with an opportunistic assistant, who then took bribes to get the student to sign with agents and Adidas. So yes, the NCAA may be able to do something. Assuming that there's anything left.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    Sounds like someone was under investigation, by the SEC (no, not our conference), and as in all Federal cases, they apply pressure to the charged to name names. In this case, the defendant told the FBI that they had been involved, in these sort of corrupt activities, and was willing to name others who are actively doing it.

    Where this could get interesting is if or when the players and their families that were accepting money from coaches, agents, and Adidas guys start talking. This could get even more interesting real quick.

    As is Wiley and Heron. They can turn their uniforms in now. The Wiley ordeal was shady from the very start. Mom's were receiving the cash according to one report? Wow.

    I thought for sure we'd see a Jacobs letter announcing the "retirement" of Person. I guess Jay couldn't get in front of this one. 😳

    On a serious note, not that I'd shed tears over auburn's troubles, I do feel bad for some of my AU friends and Dub as they didn't ask for this but will suffer for it. If people would just do the right thing...

    And we know that extra cash was reported to the IRS, correct? Just speculating but that could give players and families involved to open up about how deep the knowledge of these deals went. Did it begin and end with Person or did Pearl and others know?
