    Looks like they were taking money to direct them towards agents/advisers after they left and getting money from Adidas to influence players to signing with them. I also saw a post that said $100,000 was to be paid to a recruits family in 4 payments. The tweet implied that it was a kid at Louisville

    Seems like they were alleged to be directing them for personal benefit/kickbacks.

    The men agreed to pay $100,000 to the family of one recruit and $150,000 to the family of another recruit, the complaint alleges. The schools were not named, though one was described as “a public research university located in Kentucky” with approximately 22,640 students. The other school was described as “a private research university located in Florida” with approximately 16,000 students

    We might get some penalty which is fine because apparently Evans did stuff here but it is amazing that unc cheats for 20 years and nothing has been done. It's a joke.

    Evans took $1,500. What a small amount to ruin your career over.

    See page 25 and 26 of the FBI's complaint: https://www.justice.gov/usao-sdny/pr...98756/download

    Number 53 and 54 indicate Evans wanted to start making payments to "player 3" and his family was aware and on board with the decision. Player 3 was described as being a member of our basketball team and someone Evans told the bribers was going to be a first round pick in the 2017 draft.

    Hopefully money never exchanged hands.

    Evans was trying to influence Gamecock athletes to use these agents.
    Sindarius Thornwell's agent is Andy Shiffman. Unless PJ Dozier's agent is one of these guys I dont see what the problem is.

    The affidavit says that he started talking to these guys before he left Carolina and was going to start looking to paying players and families but he left for ok state before he actually started the scheme

    I wonder if Frank caught any wind of this and helped Evans find the door? I can only hope.

    Hopefully this is all on Evans and no other coaches knew what he was doing. If he thought there was a 2017 1rst rounder 2 years ago at USC, I would say that was PG Dozier.

    That's a good speculation and may have some girth to it.

    Doesn't "player-3" line up with "University-3"? If so, It looks like Oklahoma State is "University-3."

    Unfortunately no; if you go up to No. 50a it indicates that "player-3" was a member of University 2's basketball team.

    They were talking in spring '16 about a player who would be a NBA first round pick the next year. Thornwell, Notice and McKie were the juniors on the team at the time, so I'd assume they were talking about Thornwell.

    The difference is that the FBI handled this. Not the National Council of Asinine A**hats.

    Not sure what Ray and Frank need to do right now about this, but a presser asap may be a good idea.

    I imagine they are getting as many facts together as possible. These cases could take years to go through the courts.
