More indictments coming in FBI investigation into college hoops

You didn’t think the FBI was done, did you?

A week and a half after four college basketball assistant coaches were arrested for their involvement in a bribery scheme, Bruce Feldman is reporting that more indictments are on the way:

With the FBI raiding Andy Miller’s sports agency and the Nike EYBL headquarters, you knew they’d find some more dirt, not to mention that tip line. Which coaches snitched? Which coaches need to worry? Sounds like we won’t have to wait too long to find out.

    I’d be a little nervous if I was a Kansas fan right now.

      Absolutely… a lot of signs pointing to them.

      I’ve read reports that Kansas fans are very nervous; and Kansas officials are monitoring the FBI probe.
      The Adidas executive named in the FBI document had talked about Kansas on his twitter account, and mentioned their new 191 million deal.

      Not to mention Bill Self’s favorite talent agent’s office was raided by the FBI not that long ago, no telling what they uncovered there

      As far as UK is concerned, Arizona being implicated might help a little bit with Bol Bol. If Kansas gets implicated, that could help a lot with Williamson, Grimes.

    Nothing else coming, it’s all BS. If they had anything it would already be out there. The FBI doesn’t call and say ha we are getting ready to investigate you, DO THEY?

      I beg to differ, Rick. I have seen first hand how government investigations operate, and they often expand to entangle others as facts are dug up and witnesses squeal.

      I think they actually did notify UL.

      Think about it like this secrick–

      If they’re announcing more indictments are in the pipeline, that most likely means the investigations are pretty much done, they’ve got all the evidence they need for a grand jury to indict, and there’s nt much the subjects of those investigations can do to cover their tracks at this point.

      No the NCAA calls to say they’re going to investigate. This is the FBI. And this thing is far from from over.

      When they started following the strings from the indictments in round one and raiding other offices, they might have found more info that leads to further indictments

      There will be more indictments. It isn’t realistic to think Arizona, Auburn, Louisville, and Southern Cal were doing this while no one other schools were doing it. Just like DeAndre Ayton suddenly fell into Arizona’s lap, Kansas and a couple other Big 12 schools have had some very similar recruiting coups. Like one poster already said, the FBI will put pressure on one suspect and negotiate to get him to roll over on another suspect. That’s how crime stories get extended when the feds are involved.

    Mrs. TT- Why no word about UNC today? Still think they get away with it.

    Two UL asst coaches suspended today.

    I would just dare to say that they already had a pretty strong idea of some things, and their raids on the EYBL have given them enough to confirm that.

    When the FBI releases these types of things, they almost always have a strong enough case already. I would say a lot of players and coaches are nervously awaiting what might come out from this.

    Where is the UNC announcement that was supposed to come out at noon today?

      The NCAA doesn’t think they have strung this out quite enough yet….unreal. And how did they just land Nassir Little, the #5 recruit in the country. Has no one informed this kid what’s coming down the pike for UNC…..or at least it better be coming!!

    I’ll be shocked if we can get out of this clean. Had a friend in the program a couple years ago who talks about a lot of shady stuff that went on. Everyone cheats, hopefully we just hid it better than the rest of them.

      Not even a whisper about Kentucky, that I’ve heard of. You don’t think SOMEONE would have mentioned us by now if there was anything to worry about?

      Saying that EVERYONE cheats is lazy and overly cynical. You don’t know that.

      If they had even one scintilla of evidence against UK we would have been the first words out of their mouth. They got Cal on two incidents when he’s never been credibly accused of even one, let alone sanctioned by the NCAA. They probably have an undercover team assigned to his entire family.

      Calipari wasn’t implicated in either event despite careful NCAA scrutiny of he and his staff. They want to get him worse than Obama wanted to get Osama…weird how those names are so close…

      I’m just sharing some information so that others can be prepared in case it hits the fan. Also, just in case anyone was curious some of those players he told me about were on the 2012 team. But hey, they can’t vacate the memories.

    RCF, You said when witnesses talk, so if i told them you where cheating and they only had my word for it how can they do anything. Don’t they have to have proof not just someone squealing.

      They took computers and have probably been sifting through emails and other things for the past ten days.

      Yes. Someone talks and then they look for proof to back up the claim.

    It took them 3 years to catch these guys and now they are going to go after someone just because John Doe said Rick ,that’s me did something.

    Pitino didn’t inform UL NCAA Compliance Staff when the professional agent was on campus in May to discuss bball business. I believe Calipari is watched by Sandy Bell like a hawk and he
    doesn’t have the same flexibility Jurich has afforded Pitino.

    AND doesn’t that sound an awful lot like the hooker scandal? Pitino not telling his UL NCAA enforcer that a professional agent is on campus to discuss the bball program. Makes me think it’s just fine if his assistants don’t tell him about hookers and strippers who are on campus to “discuss the bball program”.
