Maybe football guys don’t do it over the phone.


The NCAA doesn't actually care, they make too much money now to fight it. Investigating it would cost money and eventually lead to a decrease in profits.

I agree re the NCAA. Basketball guys were blatant enough that they landed in the cross-hairs of the FBI.

They do it on cloudy evenings on benches in empty parks like the KGB.

See, that’s smart (relatively speaking). The recordings are much less audible.

I love that we essentially landed Anderson with a hail mary, but if the NCAA is just going to pretend blatant cheating never happened, we should have just hired Pitino and told him to do whatever the hell he needs to do to get us a championship.

It only matters if it matters to you. If you expect the NCAA or virtually any bureaucratic organization to be your moral compass you may just as well give up. They are a major part of the problem, not the solution.

It's dispiriting to all who love the game that college hoops has become so corrupt and that that rot is enabled by the so-called sole Regulatory Body of college athletics.
What a joke.
