after weeks of inaction & a little running & hiding - the NCAA finally comes out of hiding..
and as they always do - appoints a committee to look into the scandal that's already been thoroughly exposed by the FBI..

Here's the committee and as you'd fully expect - some big names but virtually EVERY ONE of them represents the BIG SCHOOLS that have the strong ties to the shoe companies and the big money..

Only ONE mid-major representative ...(the guy from Hofstra) but even then he's only been at Hofstra for a couple years and was AD at UConn before that!!

Hmmm...if this isn't like appointing the foxes to investgate the henhouse then what is it??

Also- a subpoena is asking for all kinds of stuff at Oklahoma State - gotta figure they are buying a bunch of new shredders & incinerators right now as we speak..
Wonder how much of this the people on Oklahoma State are going to try to hang on current Illini coach Brad Underwood to try to get them off the hook

Kansas is an Adidas sponsored school, and the rumor is that the investigation is looking into the recruitment of a 5-star 2018 kid named Zion Williamson, who some rate as the top player in the class of 2018, and who is being heavily recruited by Bill Self at Kansas.

Auburn's athletic Department likewise gets a federal subpoena to turn over years of records..
I sure hope they don't treat this investigation like BRUCE PEARL did the last time he was investigated..
He simply lied and lied and lied even though the investigators had the photographic proof that he was lying.

Everywhere Bruce Pearl has been - sleaze, cheating and corruption immediately show up..
What was it that Royce Waltman said?? That if you are an honest coach, losing will get you fired but if you cheat you will always get re-hired..

Here was his quote:

"If you get fired for cheating, you can get hired right back again.
If you get fired for losing, it’s like you’ve got leprosy, so young coaches need to bear that in mind.
Cheating and not graduating players will not get you in trouble, but that damn losing ..."

Today the University of Louisville Athletic Association Board of Directors is meeting with Rick Pitino and his lawyers in compliance with his contract to give him a hearing regarding his job status.

Some things that came out of today's hearing-
After he was suspended and placed on administrative leave since Sept. 27 pending today's hearing, the University Athletic Association Board finally fired Rick Pitino today-
http://www.courier-journal.com/story...dal/763259001/

Despite Pitino's appeal made by his team of lawyers, the vote by the Board was unanimous, as the school tries to make it look like they are striving to clean up Pitino's mess and hope to avoid further NCAA penalties that could include the death penalty, since they were already on probation from their stripper/prostitute scandal.

And despite Pitino's claims he did not know anything about this recruiting/bribery scandal, the Board obtained text messages from his phone that suggested that he was involved.
http://www.courier-journal.com/story...ing/768438001/

And one more embarrassing finding-
The family of Brian Bowen, the kid Pitino coveted and who the FBI says received $100,000 to attend Louisville, was "living" in an expensive high-end hotel in downtown Louisville!-
http://www.courier-journal.com/story...dly/768838001/

"The Galt House offers extended-stay, suite apartments believed to be in the general price range of $2,500 to $4,000 per month."

after the Louisville hooker scandal when Pitino claimed he didn't know a thing about it....
he was publicly criticized because if he DID NOT know anything about it, then he should have...
so he went public assuring everyone that this would never happen again and "even if one of his players broke up with his girlfriend, then he was gonna make sure he knew about it"...

Well, looks like Rick lied about that since he's using the "I never knew a thing until I read it in the newspaper..." excuse again

I think George Costanza said it best.
