    I expect there to be multiple phases by the time it’s all said and done.

If they had beat Clemson that place would have been packed. Those random no- name schools tucked in between conference play are odd. They'll be lucky to have 30,000 people in Kroger Field this Saturday. Just how it goes. But I don't think people are going to just stop going to games all together.
    So essentially from what you said, we are now in agreement that it may hurt other programs?

    These allegations make Big Baller Brand look like missionaries.

    I would say decent chances, but who knows. Those schools don’t have to pay athletes to come there because of the story and history of their programs, but for schools like UofL and Arizona they don’t have as much to offer the high end recruits so they have to throw something else in to get attention. Money being the biggest.

    Hopefully we stay clean. I would think Cal is smarter than that.

    I would also think if any of the blue bloods had any connection they’d be mentioned first, but they also may not have gotten that far yet so we’ll see.

    Too broad.

    The issue here is 3rd parties funneling kids to certain schools. Doesn't happen at most places, very few in fact. The Feds aren't going to care about small time 1 to 1 benefits, they are looking for major funds from 3rd parties -- and then will get the kids families for tax evasion. Going to get ugly.

    Although I think the wild card is how much they pull from folks to avoid prosecution. It will be a PLETHORA of info given their desire to avoid federal prison.

    If their evidence goes back about 5 years, I can PROMISE you that UCLA will be drilled. That said, I obviously have no idea how far back they have evidence / proof, nor do I know what they'll get from the shoe guys and their files, but UCLA folks won't be sleeping well for a while.

    How much do you think all of this will change the landscape of college basketball?
