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

    I think Pearl and other head coaches over these assistants are all due a long show-cause. Considering Pearl's history, he may be effectively blackballed from the sport.

    The old firewall strategy is dead with the NCAA. The head coach is responsible for nearly all of his assistant's actions now. I think these head coaches have more on the line than the assistants with the NCAA at least.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    As of right now Auburn's involvement is related to Person connecting them to agents and then getting kickbacks for himself and the players, effectively making them ineligible, but there definitely could be some dirt around their recruitment too. The evidence will continue to pour out with the wire taps.
    Just a barner.
    Auburn attempted 40 3 pointers while Tennessee only attempted 15. This kills the one seed.

    Pearl hasn't been implicated yet. Don't know if it will stay that way but as of now he has some plausible deniability.

    What is the general mood on your team's board? Are they blaming it all on Person or do they think Pearl needs to go?

    I saw the headline on the article earlier but didn't realize it was this extensive. Like others have said, I'm a BAMA fan but I'm also a basketball fan. Sorry to see this is all the case Dub.

    Pretty morose at the Family. Lot of calls to fire JJ. Lot of anger at Chuck. Taking a wait and see approach on Pearl.

    Pretty obvious the Feds wanted to break this before practice started

    Pretty daunting when the Federal investigator spoke to others that might be involved that " we have your playbook" and the investigation will continue

    I think the early signing period comes in November. I feel sure they didn't want any other recruits bought and paid for before they had the opportunity to sign with School X. It gives them time to find a new place to play.
