    If this is a problem with adidas then it has to be UofL. UK and WKU are Nike, EKU and Morehead are Under Armor.

    IF it is UofL and Pitino has another assistant go a-wall he can't survive this, it's too much. HE HAS TO BE FIRED.

    I agree, but think it could be tough for Jurich to survive as well.

    Obviously, they haven't been named yet, but from everything that is being reported, it sounds likely to be UofL.

    From a TMZ article....

    The FBI claims Jim Gatto -- the Director of Global Marketing for Adidas Basketball -- paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to funnel top prospects to Adidas sponsored colleges ... including Louisville.

    They aren't getting rid of Jurich and they shouldn't.

    Exactly two issues in his 20 years at UofL. Both from the same program in the same 4 year stretch.

    On June 3, the alleged bribe scheme took place and "almost immediately" after, the player agreed to come to the university - (U of L)

    Press accounts called the player's recruitment a "surprise commitment" that "came out of nowhere" and a "late recruiting coup for coaches"


    Brian Bowen?

    $100,000 was funneled to the family of an All-American high school basketball player by an Adidas rep, according to what I'm reading
    That reminds me of Shabazz Muhammed and him going to UCLA.

    Seems likely.

    I'll hold off on commenting too much until more facts come out.
    It's not surprising that kids are getting paid but this isn't good for anyone involved. When the FBI comes knocking, it's very serious.
