Maybe we could get the NCAA to investigate Hillary's emails, Lois Lerner's IRS criminality, Susan Rice's political unmaskings. and other "matters" the FBI won't touch.
Basketball coaches are so much easier to arrest than Hillary Clinton.
I thought they got Pitino?
Another item to add to my “Why I don’t watch sports on TV” list.
It would be far less hazardous to one’s health to arrest a basketball coach.
When will they get Calipari?
Didn’t Pitino resign?
No. He’s on unpaid leave.
And how do we expect law enforcement do deal with organized crime on the magnitude of Hillary? Sessions, apparently, is terrified, and who can blame him? Were he to do his duty, it would at the very least be the end of his career, and he would be target of investigation into every little aspect of his life. He would also have dramatically reduced life span.

I hope the dragnet gets Coach K.
I think the FBI may start asking NBA players with Adidas contracts on whether they had influence on “directing” players to certain colleges. If I were James Harden, Damien Lillard or Derrick Rose, I better start having lawyers on retainer and/or speed dial.
I don’t see it as unimportant. Colleges are where a lot of society’s problems form. Most of those out-of-control unpatriotic NFL and NBA athletes started out as pampered, unqualified “students” for whom the rules don’t apply.
Might as well go down to the high school level while they are at it.
So glad the FBI is focused on the issues impacting the nation.
I hope every guilty coach is exposed.
It never made any sense that all the best athletes would go to the same schools.
So, Does that mean that schools such as the University of Georgia men’s basketball team are playing by the rules because they are usually not in the NCAA March Madness Tournament? Oh gee what about the other 68 schools? Or just the ones that get to the Sweet 16? Influence peddling seems to be a part of the human condition. Oh well, it looks like the guilty will be investigated. How far will it go and how will the guilty parties get around the newer new rules?!
