Who on KU's staff paid this kid 20K? Whats taking the NCAA so long to look into this? They had all off season to look into this. Will he have to play the sit and wait game like Billy Preston?

I thought the headline of the $20K article was very misleading. It should have said the payment "let" him come to KU, not "get". It was Maryland who paid and then got repaid as I understand it.

Big time collegiate athletics is a dirty business.

Therefore, I like to approach these sorts of situations with a glass half empty mindset. Best case scenario, sds fades off into the sunset never to be seen in these parts again. And we get to keep our wins that he was involved in.

Worst case scenario........well, I don't want to think about worst case scenario just yet.

Big time collegiate athletics is a dirty business, and has become a joke compared to what MICHHAWK grew up watching and loving.

Mich is a glass half empty kind of guy...who knew. Safe bet he wont be replacing Tony Robbins as a motivational speaker anytime soon...amirite..and really no cheating or money in player pockets back in the day.

Wooden was as crooked as there was with paid off players...shaved points...etc etc.back in the day. As always mich amazes me with his simple naive way at looking at life...Enjoy that half empty glass of whatever..lol

So far in the trial, no KU coaches have specifically been named, but Gatto’s attorney said he was acting on the wishes of coaches in general.

The douchebag father of the douchebag kid that took money to go to Louisville, says the douchebag family of the douchebag billy preston took $100,000 from the douchebags that are on trial.

Hope they got their monies worth. We sure as $#!t didn't. The fortune we spent to house and feed and train and educate(tee hee) that douche makes me want to puke.

The douchebag dad of the louisville commit gladly took the money. Wonder what he spent it on. Then when thangs went south, sang like a canary. We call those kind of douchebags a snitch where I come from.

If you're gonna be a douchebag at least have some honor.

You are wrong. I have three-quarters of a brain (the other quarter I lost sometime in the late 70's). I do think David M. has more skill than Silvio, but Silvio certainly looks like a stud out on the court.

We have a new AD. Is there any scenario that can come from this corruption trial that results in the new AD terminating HCBS?

When the BIG 12 eventually goes extinct, and we are scrambling to find a landing spot, I hope this corruption scandal does not hinder our chances of getting into the big 10. Football stinks. Basketball is supposed to be our ace in the hole.

I hope this episode doesn't torpedo us.

Very unlikely. I think KU and North Carolina are the two top bluebloods for a lot of sports fans.

Based on what I've read so far, I don't see any evidence that anyone at KU knew about payments to DeSousa's guardian. You can't say we weren't vigilant about compliance based on how the Preston case was handled by KU.

I say make him pay back the 2500 and have Silvio sit out a few games.

Not sure where this whole thing is headed. But it certainly is getting more interesting by the day.

Something's coming. Don't know what. But something.

KT probably won't be on our staff for much longer.

This whole scandal has me asking some questions.
Why aren't the feds going after the families for tax evasion?
Did Billy's Mom report the 20k she received in the brown bag to the IRS? IMO, she and SDS guardian should spend some time in the slammer for tax evasion. Amazing how greedy and stupid these adults are. They couldn't wait a year to get their millions, and by not waiting lost millions. Use and abuse the children.

When does the cheating start? Are shoe companies slipping a couple grand to 14-year-old high school player's parents? Logic says they are.

Paying players will not clean this up. Someone has to take the NBA and NFL to court for age discrimination. That is the only way to stop this. Until then the feds have to throw some of these parents in the slammer as examples of what happens when you break the law.
