Tre White, Lee Dort, Mark Mitchell, and Grady Dick (2022), I could live with that.

So, by this logic, because others steal from the local 7-11, we can’t prosecute the one that gets caught because everyone else is doing it.
And no, it’s not coming down hard on one Shoeco. All it would be is imposing sanctions on a university that got caught with a recruiting partner that paid players. There is zero need to come down “hard” on a ShoeCo. The DOJ already did that.
The NCAA can punish KU. Easily. Whether they do or not is another question.
But it’s good to know that we have “Supreme Court case” we can fall back on …
Fine @HighEliteMajor, but where is the proof? Innuendo and heresay come cheap, very cheap. The only way for there to not be corruption is if and when the NCAA goes into the apparel making business and starts sponsoring AAU, and it might as well since it is already cashing in in every other way.
The NCAA only has jurisdiction over schools, not the ShoeCos. Every school needs ShoeCo money. If the NCAA comes down hard on one ShoeCo, they will probably get sued unless they come down on all of the ShoeCos. If they crack down on every ShoeCo, the ShoeCos may stop spending money on these college contracts. Those contracts make athletic departments solvent, so that’s a non starter.
The only remaining option is to do nothing.
Yahtzee! And that is the non-smoking gun, since the whistle blowers have never really even blown the whistle at all. And if they did, what would they say? “We gave them money, and KU knew (… or had to know) about it.” I smell, if the NCAA tries to us, a Supreme Court case which will strip the hooker that is the NCAA of all her remaining dignity. I (Darwinism here, people) think that NCAA had better, for its own survival, quietly let this matter go.
RE: 2020 Recruiting
@BeddieKU23 Heck, I still dream of making it to the NBA. But the Devil didn’t want what I was selling.
“Snakeroot potion! Come and get it! Get your snakeroot potion!”
“Why would I need snakeroot potion down here?”
“So that you can maybe worm your way back up, kind fellow!”
@FarmerJayhawk dang! I’m having a hard time letting this go. but I’m going to.
Let go of your weenus. Might lose feeling in your elbow.
Me and my girlfriend just take turns holding my weenus, that way there is always atleast one hand free to type. And my weenus just said - and as far as weenuses go it is always right - that we are going to receive what amounts to diddly-squat from the NCAA, if anything.
@Marco You wouldn’t think so unless the NCAA has superseded Congress and its law making role.
In reality, there are several federal laws that have broad jurisdiction/blanket laws that can be used for investgations.
You got it, and a legal arguement could be made and won by KU if the NCAA oversteps in this case - which is why I think they are dragging their feet. “Come on guys, think! There’s got to be something we can get them on!”
RE: Is it over?
So based on the BYU decision, how does KU escape? The BYU decision, if I’m looking at this from the KU bubble, seems to pave the way for the results we are fearing. This was activity by a booster.
In fact, Gassnola was much closer to our staff than the boosters in BYU’s situation. Gassnola was relied upon for extensive, hands on recruiting help.
Anyone think the NCAA did this to BYU as a purposeful precursor to the punishment decisions related to the Adidas issues?
Gassnola as we all know doesn’t have to talk to the NCAA. But the NCAA can pay him for info. But he can’t change his story so to speak from sworn testimony, e.g., Self didn’t know. Based on the BYU deal, the “Self didn’t know” defense is a weak one.
A booster though is directly affiliated with the university, whereas shoe companies are the big, fat gray lady that likes to give money to universities and players and who if she chose to could flat out sing but instead chooses to only hum.
