This will be what gets “Lying” Bruce Pearl fired at Auburn! Ben Holland isn’t far behind him. I hope the idiot that left Frank Martin’s staff at South Carolina doesn’t cost him his job. Sean Miller at Arizona is sweating bullets too! Greaseball "Cal " may not get to wait until then his mighty wildcats are getting beat at halftime by Auburn!
The article describes how big people and organizations are involved in criminal conduct to achieve their goal. They are not mid-majors but “It’s the teams that already there”. The documents gathered and wiretaps provide a ton of evidence for the government. The defendants’ attorney challenge that the wiretap was improper. Next question is, can NCAA use this material to charge the 3 dozen schools. I am not too optimistic that justice will be served. The big-shots are too big for the government and the NCAA.
The NCAA lost a ton of respect with the North Carolina fiasco. If they fail to punish the schools that will be exposed in this scandal they will have lost all crediability. Not that they have much now.
Everyone has know for years that D 1 basketball has been a cesspool for years. Clean it up or watch it get worse.
