My excitement for the upcoming season has fallen off a little waiting for the NCAA shoe to fall at season's end. We know their wheels grind slowly and we may not even hear anything from them till 2020.

This could be a legitimate national championship caliber team and this whole thing takes a little of the shine off of it. Even if Self and Townsend and KU are completely exonerated, the reputation damage is done.

Well, they did it to themselves.Everyone with a brain knows Grassnola and Gatto were not defrauding anyone. They were paying for players the coaches wanted in order to like the text said, success, lottery picks. It’s Self and KU and everyone else get in line.
Self had his HOF dinner with Grassnola and both their wives .Grassnola isn’t an Adidas employee. He’s a bagman that gets the cash and or whatever it takes like the Zion recruitment. The games is shady and Self will forever be thought of as dirty. This is the 2nd big black eye for Kutis Townsend.
Yea I know Calipari had 2 FF vacated. A whole season st Memphis. 5 games at UMass. He was found not to be implicated in either but his reputation in the sports world thought of him as dirty.
I don’t think he is dirty now because he’s calling for punishment to the ones who profited by recruiting dirty etc. he said no selectiive enforcement , a shot a KU and dUKe. Has mike figured a better way? I don’t know. dUKe needs to explain Zion. And the 950k home his family resides in Durham. I’d imagine rent would be pretty high. Arizona is Nike must explain some. Cal may be bluffing but he could be clean. We’ve missed on the top recruits for several years.
Why hasn’t Townsend been put on leave or fired? Just by his text alone he should be gone. Self should BS and say we can’t have that at Kansas.

I don't think Cal is clean either. I don't believe Cal and K. and Roy are that much better at recruiting than Self and he somehow has to pay players to make up that gap. I don't believe Nike is clean and only Adidas is dirty.

I'm going to wait and see how this whole thing shakes out. As a fan it makes me sad. Big money drives the show. Everyone is vulnerable to the lure.

Without all that money I wouldn't be able to sit on my butt and watch my favorite sports on TV.

Cal’s calling for severe penalties for any found to have been involved in this scheme. He called for “no selective enforcement either” -He’s playing chess as far as cheating while the others were still on the checkerboards. 4-D shat.

Like the good Catholic he is, he said if a recruit ask for anything— “ we walk”. No wonder we couldn’t get Oubre to even visit, he canceled after the bag dropped. 😂

The UK coach calling out ANY other organization is laughable. Scumbucket calling the kettle black is a genius move to make. Don't look here, look there says the whiner.

It hurts thee likes of us who do it right says Calipari. Severe punishment and not selective will fix it Shot across the bow of the cheaters in charge at KU and dUKe.

All I'm seeing to date are accusations by a defense attorney. That doesn't necessarily add up to concrete evidence. I'm not going to get concerned until there's verifiable evidence. At this point there is no shadow cast over our 2018-19 season.

We did see texts of Self and Townsend enlisting Adidas help in getting recruits. Not sure that is within NCAA rules. Rest assured, NCAA will investigate this further. Any time school is being investigated for recruiting violations there is worry about sanctions.

The bigger programs such as Kansas, have a lot of stuff flying at it. Adidas was throwing it, Kansas didn't catch it. Let's be patient to find out any facts, if there is any.

Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to put it together. Very little if anything will happen. The days of taking a cash cow and slapping with 3 years probation, loss of scholarships, and no TV for 2 years over 1000 bucks in a questionable envelope breaking apart are over. The cash cows are too big and if Kansas was Topeka U they might get in trouble. Townsend may need to go.

We have ncaa penalties coming our way. When. Who knows. Likely not before this new season is over and done. Maybe not until next season is over and done. Who knows.

The only way I get queasy for this new season is if I see sds dressed and in our line up at the champions classic. If he ever sees the floor for us again in a real game, I will get uneasy. But I don't expect to ever see him again in our line up..

I think if Self is pro active and gets rid of Townsend and encourage SDS to move along he may survive it. Don’t need them digging any deeper.
