    Unfortunately none of them qualify for the hoops version of the Fulmer Cup, but athletes may be charged so there's still hope.

    Louisville is implicated. For a mere $100K, a recruit was induced to attend Louisville via Adidas wiring money to a 3rd party who then paid cash to parents.

    Louisville just got done getting hammered for paying hookers for recruits. That's suboptimal Southwest Conference ****.

    Whoa. The school being involved is one thing, but is this the first time we have evidence of a company being involved?

    Can the NCAA levy penalties against adidas?

    If Adidas is a corporate sponsor, I suppose the NCAA could sever it's ties. Some high principled college presidents may tell their AD to sever their relationship.

    But once you become attached to corporate money, it is difficult to do the divorce.

    It's basically Adidas or Nike apparel for almost every university.

    Edit: There's also Under Armour, but I think they're a distant 3rd and playing catchup.

    Yeah, but when the vendor is undermining the entire sport? The NCAA would be insane to not have clauses like that.

    There are also good behavior clauses that allow many sponsors to get out of contracts. Again, the NCAA would be insane to not have that clause in there.

    That's 100% up to the schools. The NCAA is the League of Nations in this scenario.

    AD Jurich has been fired. Pitino says he expects to be fired

    Edit:

    His contract says he has to be given a 10-day notice of intent to fire after a vote by the athletic board of directors, and has to be given the opportunity to present evidence.
    So, give it a couple of weeks

    Is anyone shocked that big time college athletes are getting paid somehow, someway?

    I'll translate it to D-1 hockey for comparison.

    I have always assumed that blue chippers routinely get into the perennial contending schools despite laughably deficient academic records and, for that matter, brainpower. I assume Joe Rockhead skates a regular shift at BC, Michigan, NoDak, and Minny, and the only thing keeping the Ivies from doing the same thing is the utter nuclear Armageddon and donor anger that would come with exposure. "T'aint morals, tis money, that saves."

    I would not in the least be surprised if a story broke that hockey players at the factory schools have their papers written for them by volunteers organized for that purpose by their hockey office.

    I'd be pretty surprised if it was by the AD, even at a place where hockey is king. That's getting too close to the Pres.

    But this kind of bald deal making and money laundering between the athlete, the AD, and a merchandiser? Yes, in all honesty if that happened with D-1 hockey I'd be genuinely shocked.

    Now, with hoops and footbaw you have to slide the slime scale somewhere to the right for all these measures. But how much? That I just don't know.

    The strippers/hookers for recruits. Maybe more like Sgt. Schultz "I know nothing".

    Everyone knew that something like this was going on. AAU basketball is absolutely filthy and unregulated and that's the thing that basketball has that hockey doesn't. Football has been tilting that way with summer 7 on 7's and QB camps and this might put a pause on that.
