Texas A&M’s Robert Williams received shoes with cash stuffed in them (allegedly)

Matt Norlander, a college basketball writer for CBSSports.com, is in New York for the second college basketball corruption trial and his tweets of the testimonies are electric.

My favorite so far is one about former Texas A&M star Robert Williams. You remember him, right? Big guy who came back for a second season when he was already projected as a first-round pick. We now know about some extracurricular activity that may have impacted his decision to play a sophomore season with the Aggies: he was already getting paid (allegedly, of course).

From Norlander’s juicy thread:

Here’s an all-timer: In 2017, then-Texas A&M asst Amir Abdur-Rahim met w/ Dawkins, Blazer + undercover agent to discuss paying then-A&M player Robert Williams. A pair of shoes were then allegedly purchased @ Cosmo in Vegas, stuffed with $11,000 and FedEx’ed to Williams. (@MattNorlander)

Racks stuffed in shoes and shipped via FedEx? Classic!

      Yeah, but the cash probably won’t fall out when the package opens. This is clearly a better plan.

    In all of this, I still can’t really fault the kids. When I was 19/20, I’d take 11 grand in a heartbeat. I’m 37 now and if someone offered me an 11k bonus just to stay at my job another year I’d prolly shlt myself. The kids were mishandled by family, coaches, and whoever else. I’m not saying they’re innocent, they all knew what they were doing was TECHNICALLY wrong, but I don’t blame them one bit for getting paid. Apparently, according to the fine folks at the ncaa, it’s only wrong for kids at certain schools to break the rules any way.

      The US military does this all the time and it’s perfectly legal. It’s called a re-enlistment bonus.

      Our military peeps should be getting A LOT more of a bonus. Biggest use of money in the US, and many of them might, ya know, die. Personally, there’s a lot of stuff that sweet tax money could be better used for rather than a war machine, but the guys and gals signing up for service deserve every cent they get. It’s a shame the US govt doesn’t give two shlts about them after they come home with less limbs and enough psychological damage for 100 civilians.

      Liether don’t be stupid both sides are full of it. Today’s Republicans constantly use blasphemy by saying their Christian when it’s obvious their not as a tool to get voted in even though they hate the poor folks voting for them. People should realise that’s blasphemy and any one who succumbs to it is technically worshipping a false prophet.

      Ridge, I just want to say I enjoy when you bust out songs that are relevant to the article. Whether you realize it or not, you do it relatively often, and it’s always spot on.

    If it had been an Emery package, it would have magically fallen open.
