    I'm sure all of them will deny it, and the NCAA will struggle to prove any of it. The schools will deny knowledge of any of it since they can claim the parents/agents brokered deals without their knowledge.

    Fran should get a $10M and 5 year extension for not being named.

    Not going to be any trouble for the blue blood programs. Zero, zilch, nothing, nathan, nada! Book it.

    I saw the Barnstormer's fired Stephen. I hope that doesn't have anything to do with this since we've had a lot of guys from that program.

    Meanwhile, back in Iowa....Fran is still our coach, ISU still sucks, and do I eat beef or fish tonight? Hmm. Which one of these examples will I have better chance of digesting? I know that Fran sucks as a coach, and ISU will always suck, I guess I'll go with the fish

    Well this is the FBI not the NCAA doing all the leg work here. So there's that. They can't do anything about preventing a nutjob kid they've been warned about from shooting up a school but they can nail these schools to the wall. Go figure

    I've been told by the board experts that nothing is going to happen. They are typically right. It will be interesting to watch. The national media seem to think this is more of a story, but they are trying to sell content.

    Unfortunately, the more teams/colleges that are implicated, the more watered-down the punishment or sanctions will be. NCAA can't afford to have ALL the blue blood schools punished at the same time.

    2020 NCAA Final Four = Indiana State - Vanderbilt - Texas Tech - Iowa

    There are different divisions of the FBI.

    I was going to say if you eliminate the top 20ish schools from contention the next few years we might just be able to make the dance... (how sad is that)

    I have not felt this sick since watching that Ronald Reagan film.

    I bet Buyout Barta is thinking double that amount.

    This will be their excuse. It has nothing to do with the coach or the school. It is all on the agent and the athlete.

    "I think everyone knows that there are billions of people in the world, as a coach, I just can't police everything that goes on out there...I told my people to make sure they follow the NCAA rules and they try, but no one can read or understand all the record speaks for itself...I plan to get back to doing the work I was hired to do."

    That should work...

    I was going to say, maybe Barta is a genius this whole time and knows Fran is the only one not on a list and Iowa will be a top 5 team after all the others get taken down! It is our only hope at this point, one can dream right :)
