If a transgression is more than four years old, whether a school knew becomes an issue. If not, the school knowing doesn’t matter. Neither UMass nor Calipari was found to know about Camby.

Not really. Even though the NCAA was inconsistent, there is within its bylaws leeway to upgrade those penalties in the aggregate. And that’s all a court needs to see.

So why reinstate the player who applied for it? Your argument would need to apply to both.

One of the inconsistencies of the NCAA’s handling of Louisville. I can’t give you a good explanation of that.

This is right. Though often it can be done in the same e-mail:

Escorts/strippers were heretofore treated like any other extra benefit. When the dynamic of a basketball administrative staffer arranging and paying for the parties was added, the NCAA enhanced the penalties. Hence, a $120 “side deal” for sex can be Level 1, $120 meal a Level 3.

Under $200, doesn’t really matter. Pay the money back and move on.

I believe the NCAA infractions report says as much.

It was U of L’s call. Technically, they had 45 days, I think.

So, last night, I figured I’d wait to post this photo gallery until morning, so I’d have something new to post. Turns out, I didn’t need it. Will throw it up now

The NY guys are charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud. It’s illegal to devise a scheme or artifice to defraud another & the wires are used. The US claims the schools were defrauded out of their right to enroll eligible athletes. The defendants claim the schools benefitted.

It’s stretching the wire fraud statute to its limits to proceed with it here. Plus the 2nd Circuit (where the SD of NY sits) has been limiting prosecutors use of the statute in recent years. So interesting to see how it plays out.

Also, the information provided by the agent whose company kept the records. Also, other information seized from other sources. All this does today is begin to show the scope of all this.

IRS could, in fact, have a whole bunch of questions for a lot of people. But this isn't really being investigated as a tax case.

Granted, I’m not a lawyer. But in all of today’s news, I’m missing the presence of anything illegal. I know, NCAA rules, etc. But still . . .

Still a lot of questions. Worth noting that Miller likely has filled in most of the blanks with detailed descriptions of all these. So we’ll know, at some point.
