So, uh, holy shit. I'm starting this thread in the College football forum because this could have a big impact on NCAA sports in general.

Basically, there are 4 assistant coaches indicated in the charges from Auburn, Oklahoma State, Arizona, and USC.

Louisville is charged with paying a player $100k to commit. (They're already on probation. That program is staring at the death penalty).
All signs point to Miami being involved as well.

From Adidas, this goes all the way up to James Gatto, who is the head of their Global Sports Marketing for basketball.

Here's the basic outline of the case:

Should anyone care to read it, here's the actual charge:

Third strike for Pitino at Louisville. He ran a dirty program at UMass. A dirty program in Kentucky and a dirty program in Louisville.

Pitino never coached at UMass...that was Calipari.

Providence is where I was thinking for Pitino. Mixing up my small New England universities

Calipari is a yinzer, so leave him out of this!
