    Don't think the feds would concern themselves with such things.

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

    With Pearl's past history at Tennessee and the show cause given, looking at the NCAA Bylaws (11.1) concerning the Head Coach's responsibility to monitor, it really doesn't look positive for him.

    I agree. I think the FBI saying the schools were defrauded, along with having transcripts between Person and the player to keep it between them and only them, is a pretty solid rebuttal to go along with the wiretaps. Given the way the bylaw is structured though, it's probably the defense of the damned.

    No clue why, but Arizona has cancelled its team media day for Wednesday while Auburn has cancelled Bruce Pearl's press conference for tomorrow.

    You knew you were talking a chance with Pearl. (Kind of like Kiffin).

    But Chuck is (I don't mean this to make fun) family. I understand being angry at him. He has really screwed you over if all this is true.

    Just talked to my Zona buddy. Didn't get to talk long, but he related 2 recruits that are probably right in the middle of this mess. He is not happy, but at least he isn't in denial.

    Anyone who believes Chuck Person went out on his own to New York for the purpose of soliciting money for recruits is kidding themselves. Doesn't someone who coaches there have a history of getting recruits from that area of the country.

    I'm not given to hyperbole but based on what I'm reading....is this the biggest scandal in college sports history?

    Sure sounds like it to me.

    Think it may depend on how much more comes out - but even at this point it has to be close...

    Late to this party....2 quick observations

    1. ESPN doesn't seem to think it's bigger than Dwayne Wade signing with the Cavs OR Jerry Jones taking a knee....
    2. This is just the tip of the iceburg....and if you think Football is not in the crosshairs, we are all crazy

    I have never dreaded reading through a thread so much in my life....was worried it was us.....
