    Looks like some assistant coaches and representatives from a clothing or shoe company are involved in corruption and fraud.

    $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

    Very early speculation but if it's Louisville and Pitino has another "rogue" assistant coach, can he survive that?

    Jim Gatto, one of the Adidas' head basketball honchos, being arrested is huge news. Could mean some big names in college are about to drop.
