    For the top 25 programs, a GREAT deal. For the next 100 programs, somewhat.

    You think it will spell the end of one and dones and that perhaps college athletes will start getting paid?

    No to the first, no idea to the 2nd.

    Don't be confused, the FBI has zero interest in cleaning up college hoops. Not their job.

    Personally l'm looking forward to college basketball undergoing some readjustment. It's been warped and out of whack for a number of years now.

    A coach I was just talking to had a good point...it'll be interesting to see how the IRS feels about families receiving six figures paychecks and not paying taxes on it. That could hypothetically be used as pressure to get folks to tell all.

    I do think this will ultimately help move the NBA to allow HS kids to enter the draft again, and the NCAA to look to a 2-3 year commitment from a kid who choses to attend college, if that's possible to enforce? Heard a lot today about the NBA creating "Club teams" similar to those in Europe and elsewhere; but that would demand a financial commitment from the NBA that they've been getting for free from the colleges for years? Regardless, I see major changes on the horizon for college hoops.

    Not really. John Ramsey is the Matt Jones of UL. The difference is most UL fans can’t stand him.

    Sure sounds like Jurich might be in trouble as well.

    From what I’m hearing the board will vote on Jurich in the morning. Rick is done regardless.

    Tom Jurich is John Ramsey's paycheck, I wouldn't call him the Matt Jones of UL. Ramsey is/was a paid UL Schill.

    During investigation into UL foundation it was determined they provided funds for a "pro UL " radio show believed to be The Ramsey and Rutherford Show. Amount was significant somewhere around 200k if I remember correctly.
