    Yeah, if the assistants that have been charged don't starting singing, they're pretty dumb.

    Agreed. Just the information that is already publicly available looks like jail time for a lot of those guys.

    Jay Bilas has been awfully quiet on twitter lately. He's basically only posts Jeezy lyrics and his constant nonsense that athletes should be paid. Well Jay, looks like all of them were, so not much else to tweet about, huh?

    I like Jay, but he definitely suffers from "smartest guy in the room" disease.

    I think he does a fine job as an analyst. I follow him on twitter and he just comes across as a jackass 75% of the time. A guy as connected as he is has to know what is going on in the game and up the ranks too, which make all his tweets about paying players even more nonsensical.

    And coaches are going to squeal. I have no doubt they'll talk. If you're a guy just doing your job, never concerned with jail, and suddenly the prospect of prison for multiple years literally comes knocking at your door, you're talking. These guys have a lot to lose, and while I know they knew it was against the rules, I'm convinced many had no idea how illegal the shit they were doing was.

    One of the Rivals.com recruiting reporters is calling bullshit on the "Arizona/Miami bidding war for Nassir Little" story.

    Can't say I would mind if Illinois went into the tank because they had to get rid of Underwood because of this.

    Yeah, the time period begins with Travis Ford, but it extends into Underwood's short tenure. Also, the assistant that was charged was brought to Oklahoma State by Underwood.
