Spot on, ken.
How many coaches phones were tapped by the FBI? My Ducks play Zona tonight, wonder if he will play?
That is exactly what this shows.
No chance he's allowed to play. And, I would be shocked if Sean Miller is still the head coach by the end of this weekend.
They are leading the league and may be forfeiting their wins?
Broward county has dead bodies the morgue, but the FBI is tapping the round ball instead.
Please get the priorities straight, Mr. Sessions and Mr. Wray.
I may be in the minority here but I don’t see how this NCAA stuff has anything to do with the FBI. I don’t see where anyone is being forced to do anything. These underhanded deals involve transactions that may violate rules and regulations that were agreed upon by universities, employees of universities, student athletes and the non-profit organization known as the NCAA. Grievances should be addressed and settled by the affected parties without government or law enforcement intervention.
“NCAA college div 1 basketball is now a farce. Just another distraction. Suggest working on ones own jumpshot.”
NCAA is a farce and a rotten one at that.
“FBI wiretaps intercepted telephone conversations between Arizona coach Sean Miller and Christian Dawkins...”
Well at least they weren’t wasting their time investigating Nick Cruz and were focusing on the real dangerous issues of the day.
The FBI was conducting wiretaps and working HARD to ensure a kids game was clean. Meanwhile they ignore Cruz and his plans and preps. They lie to depose the rightful president and to support Hillary. They ignored the Boston bombers. They ignored the jihadi woman in San Bernadino. They couldn’t wiretap Major Hassan. They refuse to monitor mosques, even terrorist mosques in NYC that launched the sidewalk attack.
But a kids game in college... BOOM!
The only thing the FBI is really interested in regarding this is the untaxed money involved.
Would today’s FBI agents rather hang around college sports programs or mess with deadly drug and human traffickers?
The FBI is more corrupt than NCAA basketball. I would be happy to see both go away.
If this is just a big tax beef, why not let the IRS do the investigating? Why is the FBI doing this instead of the IRS? Unless, like the #BrowardCowards, this generation of Feebs would far rather pursue perps unlikey to shoot at them. And/or this investigation will get a lot more press than taking down violent criminals and crooked government officials.
I agree with you about the FBIs priorities. Hillary can sell our uranium, Slick can sell our missile guidance technology and theres nothing to investigate. Some kid gets $100,000 of the millions the university makes from him to turn a # 10 program into a #9 program and the countrys at risk. Maybe Comey was a USC fan.
Money laundering, failure to report income, for starters.
There is one rather large name missing from the list of colleges identified in these wiretaps: Gonzaga, last year's runnerup.
Great student athletes, graduate on time, or come back and finish their degrees if they leave for the pros early. Not only was Kelly Olynyk an AA and academic AA, he departed after four years on campus with a bachelors and masters degree.
Too many people think sports are about the only priority.
The fbi(small case) is ALL OVER the ‘important’ stuff...or so it seems?
Strange how ‘dirty’ and corrupt they have become.
All d1 schools have athletics.
