@JayHawkFanToo The loophole was closed for all NCAA sports as a bylaw to their general amateurism rules: https://static.lrbears.com/custompages/Compliance/BylawArticle12-Amateurism.pdf
If you have any proof that basketball would be exempt for this bylaw, I would ask that you share it. It also doesn’t matter what school orginized the payment. If someone or their family is paid by any party, they lose their amateur status.
It really seems think everyone is in a wait and see mode for what the FBI do next. I wouln’t be surprised if we don’t know if Silvio is playing or not until the first game of the season.
