    I think it’s too spread out. When it’s all said and done I see a lot of wrist slapping and maybe a few infractions here and there but nothing big. Take down men’s CBB and the NCAA collapses. I don’t see that happening.

    As usual the media has to make a LOT out of nothing much.....half of these kids listed had a meal with an agent and we are not even sure who paid for that meal or when it occurred. So without that important information they go ahead and post an article...I hope yahoo or whomever gets their butts sued big time for this!!! Now the kids that took out $1000's in "loans" is a different story but those numbers are, at least at this point, less then 20. BS article by someone looking for click bait numbers!

    And this is what was discovered. Imagine everything going on they haven’t found. Just confirms what we all have known forever. Hopefully through all this it levels the playing field some and curbs the cheating but probably just wishful thinking. Anytime there is as much money involved as there is in big time athletics corruption isn’t far behind.

    I love it that Calipari "denied having any relationship" with the agent. I bet he has a book full of prepared 'denial statements' that can be used for any occasion (or any accusation, as it were).

    Also, love the Fultz is implicated....from UW...Lomar....who is now at UofA..along with Book Richardson who was already charged. Oh my, I sure hope nothing bad happens to Arizona ;-)

    I hate this stuff, because I fully believe the NCAA steals from these kids.

    But I hate almost every team implicated...

    I really don't think this will have any affect the rest of this season with regards to suspensions. Unless a lone school has the balls to suspend a coach/player without due process. This might take a year for the NCAA to sort out. Too many programs, players and coaches involved.

    This is not the NCAA. This is the FBI. In September it was the FBI, and Pitino was fired almost immediately.

    If it was the NCAA, they would do nothing. What happened to Louisville over the last week was the NCAA, but it was a result of the FBI from September. These are serious findings by the FBI. The NCAA has no choice to act afterward, even if it takes 6 months. Basically, the NCAA didn't have to pay for any lengthy investigations. The FBI did their work and the FBI work was unsolicited by the NCAA.

    We Lobo fans have to also be concerned as Coach has a number of high profile, highly regarded, and highly recruited transfers from some of the schools that will eventually be named. Bragg for example had Kansas and Kentucky as his final two coming out of HS.

    By the way, it was good to see Duke and North Carolina on that preliminary list. There are many facets to the FBI investigation. These discoveries are simply one of them. My hope is that the FBI does not hold anything back and finally pulls this filthy blanket off of the NCAA and the schools it is in bed with. I would like to see the college game return to a more level and fair system that replaces the corrupt NCAA. It's time to shuffle the deck. Any pretense of the NCAA being a legit respectable and honest government has to be circling the toilet.

    later edit ...

    Another repercussion that will be hitting the Lobos is the prospect of fighting off a number of other schools for Coach Weir. They will come in offering millions that UNM cannot come close to.

    I’m thinking - many interesting discussions happening about now in many institutions.

    I hope Weir is fully aware of any history of his players transferring to UNM.

    Once the NCAA starts their investigation, they will give some sternly worded statement towards the P5 schools and furrow their brows and wag their fingers at them and then take a non-P5 schools and give them the death penalty. And the P5 schools while rejoice and complain how they are not getting enough teams in the NCAA basketball tournament with a sub .500 conference record.

    That is the old saw. The NCAA gets so upset with North Carolina that they sanction Cleveland State.

    I wanted to say they cared more about academics (UNMs football program basically got the death penalty for some grade/student issues from an assistant). But then we see them do nothing to UNC.

    And now that it's much more widespread regarding $$$, you would think there would be a mandatory 3-4 scholarship loss and no post season for two years right off the bat for all teams. But we're talking cash cow P5s. I'm with abqlobo here. I fear for the SDSU type teams caught up here. They will be made an example out of quicker than any P5.

    Didn't lobo football lose 5 scholarships for 4-5 years. They have never really recovered. They need to do the same to basketball teams. Make them suffer too.

    If this is 100% accurate, Arizona will need a new head coach and I would think Arizona gets more than just a wrist slap...$100,000 is a crazy amount of money.
