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.
