FBI



  • FBI names KU according to KK.



  • After reading it it’s all adidas until proven otherwise



  • According to the article I read, university of Kansas is a victim of fraud?



  • NM

    @Eric-san Probably legally. But only because someone has to fall on the sword and I seriously doubt it to be Bill Self.


  • Banned

    Gots to be JJ’s mom. Honestly, how that went down I would have picked him over anyone else that has come here.


  • Banned

    That recruitment was to MSU what the Ayton one was to us.


  • Banned

    Minus Bill Self allegedly being on tape ordering the payment.



  • Julian Wright’s hamburger story never sat well with me. Preston signing out if the blue threw up major red flags also.



  • Another report alleging De Sousa is caught in this


  • Banned

    Well at least we know that Adidas was trying to do it’s part for us against Nike lol. The “embargo” was real for a period of time.

    I’m sure other schools are laughing at us right now. But I can’t wait to see what comes out of the EYBL raid. Adidas didn’t just start paying players $90k while Nike wasn’t lol.

    Cal and K just landed 9 of the top 25 player for 2018 lol. BUT NOTHING TO SEE HERE FOLKS.



  • Two players listed with Silvio signing date matching one description. It is between Billy and Garrett for the other one.

    @MR11 Link?




  • Banned

    @MR11 thanks pal



  • Small caveat is that no coaches are listed in the Kansas section



  • Sadly, I think the description on the second matches Garrett closer than Billy


  • Banned

    Does sound like De Sousa. If that is the case, also sounds like they got blackmailed by UA. It was KU or Maryland right?

    No coaches listed. Players dealing directly with Adidas. JJ’s mom could absolutely be in deep shit here though if she didn’t claim everything correctly.



  • I think KU is going to be fine. The first player is Billy, the second Silvio. They payments were intentionally hidden to defraud KU. It says specifically Silvio wanted to come to KU anyway.



  • The FBI says that player 2/guardian 1 needed Adidas funds to repay illicit payments from another shoe company. The player did not want to attend another school since the player was more interested in KU. So the FBI is saying another shoe company was making payments to players.



  • Isn’t there is a major ineligibility problem, though, if the players received payments? At minimum, vacating the F4, tourney appearances in 2017 and 2018, and all our victories in both seasons?

    Incorrect.

    Facts



  • The NCAA is going to clear Nas Little and Quinerly. We’ll be fine.

    Lol for real.

    I mean, we now know why Preston didn’t play. KU was smart enough to actually figure it out. Missed it with Silvio but that situation sounds very weird.



  • @mayjay If Kansas didn’t know of ineligibility issues during the season, it won’t have to vacate any wins.



  • I mean just shocking that Preston’s mom took money right?



  • Also this means Maryland paid for Silvio, lol.

    Don’t worry we are still the a-holes to them

    I guess it could be seen that way…i still think there needs to implicit evidence that ku was involved which seems to not be the case. Billy never played. Silvio is a different story but I believe what I stated above would be needed as well to implicate the program?

    Oh without a doubt.



  • alt text



  • @BShark good statement. Repeat the indictment’s language and say you’re good to cooperate with the investigation, and ignore the NCAA.



  • @BeddieKU23 No one at UMass knew about Camby’s money did they? Or Villanova, with Porter?



  • These days, all KU Athletics needs to do is say the magic words in a tweet… FAKE NEWS!



  • OK guys so now you get to see my real stupidity .- so bare with me as I ask these questions. - -First I believe whether we are guilty of ANYTHING of not and it says that the University is a victim here not a defendant - but I do think this whole scenario if he hadn’t already decided I and some others I’ve talked too says they feel this here will be just enough to steer Romeo away from committing here. - I think he is now out or we are now out of the picture for him I’m afraid.

    Now my questions: - -Guys do you think this will have any effect on our other 4 commits ? - will they ask for a release? - or will they stick with us? - I’m just asking. - -Have we seen the last of Silvio now?

    Bottom line my friends where do we end up at the end of the day with this is done? - Any penalities? - I mean we all know for sure it was Josh - -but KU ( the University was not involved there at all - -that was between Gatto and Apples right? - we had NOTHING our hands was not in that kettle right? - -someone help me out - what happens to us? - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @SlickRockJayhawk I like the “We’re VICTIMS!” card.



  • @jayballer73 not josh or his mom



  • People assumed Josh. It was Billy. @jayballer73



  • Kevin Knox played. Ayton played. Sexton played. Little and Quinerly will play. So Silvio can probably play. Doesn’t seem he had any knowledge of it, and didn’t see a dime. KU is certainly deep enough in the post to not play him. Wonder how it shakes out.



  • If the NCAA does anything, they’ll give Silvio a slap on the wrist a la Selby. Worst possible case is the entire season suspension like Wiley at Auburn. But I think a semester may be a realistic expectation.



  • @mayjay sounds like Joe Monaco has already played that card. But it’s not nebulus enough to be effective :)



  • Apparently on April 25th the basketball commission will be releasing their findings & resolutions for the NCAA.


  • Banned

    Yea I reread it, and it is definitely Billy instead of Josh. My bad.



  • This really sucks. So, i guess this means all the Nike recruits are all going to KY and Dook because they want the college experience, and aren’t receiving a dime. Yeah, right. This was simply a plan to take out a foreign competitor through the long arm of the law. If they were actually investigating fraud, I think everyone of the KY recruits have been paid, as well as every one of Dooks. But, we will never know that, will we? Because they will NEVER truly investigate Nike.



  • @KUSTEVE On the bright side, no way KU sticks with Adidas lol.


  • Banned

    @KUSTEVE I’d just give it a minute. I’m sure the Nike hammer will come.



  • If I was joshs mom…





  • @BShark ya well sounded pretty logical to umm LOTS - not just jayballer 73 lmao. - But we know you didn’t give that a thought right? - - Sure you didn’t it’s ok. - go ahead cast those stones lmao. still ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY.

    Oh ya guess you didn’t feel like to answer the important question that I ask huh? - like in the end run how is this going to effect us - Penalities? - De-Commits? - -Ya I’ll say it again even if the University has no wrong doing in this - -This kind of pub is just what Indiana ordered for the Romeo recruitment. - -Couldn’t have come at a better time for them. - That’s ok though if it does - -were still gonna be fine. - We were fine before Romeo- and he now doesn’t come- we still be fine - ok ready - -GO - -throw those stones lmao
