Who’s surprised? I think most people would be surprised that it’s actually getting discovered

Dickie V sounded personally offended on Twitter last night when he found out Sean Miller got caught on the wire.

Illegal in the NCAA perspective. Criminally no

Just saw someone else mention this, it should be reported income and the athletes should pay taxes on the money they receive

If the schools paid them it would be income, everything that's been announced so far outside of Deandre Ayton has just been a loan

Its wondering the same thing, I think it has to do with agents bribing players, I dont think theres anything illegal about the school paying the kids though 

Because the FBI believes they not only violated NCAA rules but that they also broke the law.

Best explanation I've seen so far:

The feds are charging four former assistant coaches at Division I schools as agents of federally funded organizations. They can do that because all of their former schools do more than $10,000 a year in business with the federal government, whether through grants, loans, contracts, or other collaborations. These schools college basketball programs have just about nothing to do with the federal government, but the Justice Department is using a broader anti-corruption law to target those coaches.

Why is the FBI even involved in this?

 

Maybe, just maybe, they should be spending more time investigating tips on people who have threatened to shoot up schools.....just sayin

Best explanation I've seen so far:

I don’t think the FBI gives a damn if they’re breaking NCAA rules, it has more to do with bribery. I think those coaches were being charged because of the connection to the sneaker companies
