And now there's this



  • Saw this right after reading the article about how Meyer was talking about how this FBI thing has effected KU Recruiting - -then I saw this - -and just came across National news:

    The FBI uncovered - -maybe the biggest scam in history of the game - -Stars & Coaches - -Schools Caught cheating on College entrance exams - plot includes money from 200,000 to- - - - 6 and 1/2 Million dollars. - -for better Scores on players tests - -they’re SAT’s & ACT’S

    Also moneywise from 250,00 to - - -6 Million for fabricating a players - something about making up different things for the players - so yet even more Scandal - -we weren’t mentioned on this - - Schools mentioned in this were: - - - USC - – Georgetown - - -Stanford - - -& – Yale. - -These things are gonna get - -REALLY UGLY. – ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • just a follow up. - -More schools involved in this: - - UCLA – San Diego - - Texas - & Wake forest. - - -Actually Hollywood stars involved with this. - the scam was to get their kids accepted by paying to elite colleges - - - having fabricating papers made up getting them admitted as recruited athletes regardless of their alethic abilities



  • No all world academics Duke yet? 🤔



  • So far at least FIFTY - -FITHY of the nations richest paying for this - cheating to get their kids admiited - even for non revenue sports - -for bribes - it’s just crazy



  • The pay the players crowd always says the scholarship the players get doesn’t have value. This shows how much value acceptance to a high end college has. Duke players get access to an extremely desired resume builder that 95% of them would not have access to without basketball.



  • Yes, lets broadly apply the value of bribes by the extremely wealthy to the 99.99% of other students and all athletes at all institutions. Basically, all student athletes are millionaires, they just can’t claim any of that on their assets or see it in their bank account.

    WITH TEXAS IT JUST THE TENNIS PROGRAM AND COACH



  • So, this past corruption criminal activity involved schools using middlemen to get athletes allegedly by paying the parents to accept a scholarship for their kids.

    This new corruption involves parents paying middlemen to get schools to accept non-athletes as if they were athletes.

    Maybe Lori Loughlin paid $500,000 to get her kids into an athletic program at USC because of all that shoe money floating around?



  • Surprise surprise…not, Celebs paying to get their kids into programs. I heard that one of KUs former Tennis coaches could be involved. What a mess Long has inherited here and what a mess SZ left. A guy has to wonder what infractions Beaty could be involved with how bad he stank lol .

    boy I don’t know but with all this crap is true - - between our Basketball - - our football- - and now maybe even dealing with a tennis player - -holy bat shit - -these things sure make us look crooked.- -I know just got to see how it plays out - if we go on FOOTBALL

    l restrictions - -WOW Miles will be wondering what the hell he got into - -how would it effect our future recruiting - man I hope not



  • @jayballer73 I would bet on it being a fairly minor violation on that part. KU should’ve just paid him and been done with it.



  • @mayjay This was parents paying non revenue sport coaches to have their kids as part of whatever athletics program because of lower academic standards for admissions for most athletes.

    The stupid thing to me is that if these parents had just straight gone to the admissions office and say they’d donate whatever amount to the school directly, I’d be very surprised if a school would turn down a $500,000 donation to admit a kid who isn’t quite academically up to par.

    This story just shows how desperate some people are to have their kids go to prestigious school.

    I would have to agree completely bud - just what I was thinking – just pay him - well that might not be so easy now - -just pay the money and be done with it. - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    That’s a pretty dam good point all things consideration. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @Texas-Hawk-10 No, not advisable. Further, if it was that simple, that’s how it would have been done. That’s a big no-no. Donations are screened and that is at the top of the “watch for” list. What happened in some of these cases were that they masked bribe money as donations, which is a specific part indictment info. –

    “(3) to use the facade of a charitable organization to conceal the nature and source of the bribe payments.”

    The tried to run it through a charitable organization because to do it out in the open would not have worked.



  • Curious whether the parent(s) also claimed the contribution(s) to the charitable organization as a tax deduction?? Time will likely tell.



  • @HighEliteMajor I never claimed any of that stuff was legal.



  • @CRH107 I believe I read that may have happened as well.
