University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

One year ago today, the FBI College Hoops probe broke

Let me take you back to September 26, 2017. It was a simpler time, when the biggest story in Kentucky sports was yet another heartbreaking loss to Florida in football and Immanuel Quickley’s recent commitment. That all changed at 10 a.m. when the FBI’s college basketball probe went public.

It’s wild to think how many things have changed since that day. Rick Pitino and Tom Jurich are out at Louisville, Brian Bowen is playing professionally in Australia, and Kentucky finally beat Florida in football. What a year it’s been.

We’re going to commemorate the anniversary throughout the morning here on KSR, starting with links to our biggest posts from that day. We had some good ones:

Just think, back then, Pitweetos weren’t even a thing.

    Still have a feeling the FBI was bluffing with its warning to coaches that they better call and start fessin’ up. I don’t think it has nearly as much as its claimed.

      That was pretty obvious, I think. Sounds like they had some leads that would require a ton of work to amount to anything. If I was cheating, I would just sit tight and take my chances. It would be stupid to confess to anything.
