Got to think Mack was reassured all was clean when he took job.
Almost have to expect current commitments to bail as well as prospective targets.

Of course Chicago maybe the actual facts are different and can be refuted and maybe, even if not refuted, the NCAA will do nothing or next to nothing as has often been the case. But if the facts are true as described in the article, there is certainly grounds for serious sanctions. BTW, I spent a fair amount of time in the late 1990s in Louisville on business and have stayed in the Gault; very nice, historic hotel in those days

Thanks NCJ.
Yeah, seems extremely damaging to Louisville, if indeed proved guilty.
If so, would stun me that even the NCAA could overlook it.
OT, I hope we hear good news on Mustapha real soon!

Per Dan Wetzel
TJ Gassnola testified that guardian of Silvio De Sousa was paid $60,000 by a University of Maryland booster and needed to pay it back to go Kansas. Gassnola offered $20,000 to help but said he never paid it. Did pay $2,500 on separate issue.

Gassnola said he paid mother of Billy Preston $89,000 over the course of nearly one year, including a $30,000 cash payout in a NYC hotel and $20,000 in a Vegas hotel.

Gassnola was adamant no one on Kansas coaching staff knew about payments although he regular talk recruits with Bill Self and staff

Preston was suspended from KU when he crashed a Dodge Charger on campus. KU investigated and found it was registered to Preaton's grandmother in Florida who passed away. Was apparently satisfied with that (how many Grandmothers drive Dodge Chargers?)

Self is another “Teflon” guy
Per Zags
TJ Gassnola just testified in court that former Adidas exec Jim Gatto told him he got a call from Bill Self thanking him after Silvio de Sousa committed to Kansas.

Per Dan Wetzel
Also, prevented from becoming evidence but read out in court was conversation between LSU coach Will Wade and defendant Christian Dawkins about 2019 recruit Balsa Koprivica who hails from Florida.

One of Gatto's attorneys, Casey Donnelly, said this: "[Wade] is commenting to Christian Dawkins that he can get him what he needs – meaning money – if a player from Florida, Balsa Koprivica, plays for LSU."

From the call, per Donnelly. Dawkins: "Would you want Balsa?" Wade: "Oh, the big kid?" Dawkins: "OK, but there is other [expletive] involved in it." Wade: "I've got to shut the door … I can get you what you need but it's got to work."
Wade may have a problem

Not surprised at all to see Will Wade involved
