Really hate to see KU's good name being drug through the mud on this.

Clearly they were the victim.

610 AM in KC suggested that Bluebloods paying players was actually good for the sport and ensures parity.

When do you think they'll announce the Adidas victim march in Lawrence?  Will there be a candlelight vigil in front of AFH?

Can we start a gofundme page for all the poor souls who are getting recruited to KU that have now had the addias nipple stopped?  Please... :tsc:
Fifteen minutes later, when the Kansas locker room opened its doors to the media, the Jayhawks were still crying. Literally, bawling. All of them. I've never seen anything like it, and I've seen devastated college locker rooms -- after losses in the Final Four, the national championship game -- ever

Of course KU/Self didn't know. Just as they didn't know Rush was injured during an NBA tryout or Slim Shady couldn't pass high school math.

Looking forward to Coach Self standing on the Phog statue speaking to the huddled masses of victimized KU fans holding candles.

No doubt his words will be lifting and inspiring.

Self isn't dumb enough to go on the offensive.  He will keep quiet and not antagonize the FBI

Let's think about the epic size of the balls it would take by the KU coaching staff if they knew Silvio/handler was getting paid. The FBI bombshell report comes out around September of 17. Not an NCAA report, The FB freaking I with handcuffs and felonies etc. Very serious stuff. So 90ish days AFTER the report comes out and while the story is still hot they decide to rush a kid into school as a backup big off the bench KNOWING that they were at least knowledgeable of money changing hands. They actually try to get a kid in EARLY while all of this is going on. They don't decide to create distance, they decide to get him in as fast as they can. That doesn't mean it didn't happen but my god that's playing with fire and border line insane.

Dilly Dilly.

Finally someone had a simple, rational thought.

You're absolutely right. It would take colossal balls. Like John Daly-sized balls. "I realize the FBI is arresting people for this stuff....but f*** it. I'm going to play this kid I knew was illegally bribed to come here."

If the staff was aware in any capacity that this SDS thing happened to convince him to come here, you really think Bill Self would be stupid enough to rush his eligibility to get him on the court WHILE there's a new story every week about FBI wire tapping?

F*** no. Bill Self may not be a choir boy, but he's definitely not an idiot.

KU knows how to buy time for sure.  Like the rape of the 16yo homeless girl in the men's bb rape dorm in December 2016.  Massa Seff kept Josh Jackson and the other high level recruits on the roster and played them like nothing ever happened.  Similar thing here.  They'll claim they didn't know a thing about the payoffs, but Larry Brown and Massa Seff are too tight for that to have happened.  If the investigation is thorough (I doubt it will be), KU's role in this payoff scheme will see the light of day.

if ku fans had to choose between a lifetime without bud light or a lifetime without reciting adam sandler quotes, which would they choose?

I asked this in a very long way on KSO, but for here, how does a company like adidas make money doing this stuff?

I mean, it's just part of their recruiting budget, right?

You mean as to adidas recruiting eventual official endorsers?

Yes, but also marketing for their apparel licensing deals, I'd guess.

So I assume a shoe/apparel company like adidas has a primary motivation of selling more stuff and making more money. Maybe there's a very secondary pride motivation of outfitting winners while competitors outfit losers.

Is the driving factor then in paying prospective college athletes (or their families) to get them to a school that wears their stuff, with the expectation that consumers will see the stuff in action on those college teams and buy it?

Is it that there's a thought that a player who spends 4 years (or in the case of good basketball players, 9 months) wearing their stuff will then lead to them accepting an endorsement deal w/that company when they go pro over others, and having that endorsement will lead to strong sales to consumers? Is it that as unlikely as that seems, tossing $50-100K now at hundreds of kids for the off-chance one of them eventually becomes a market force and they'll have an advantage with him, is worth all the times the payment results in no benefit to sales?

How do the companies' deals w/the schools play into this? Is that the necessary step 1 in having a school to funnel kids to in order to start the above scenarios? Adidas made a giant deal with UW yesterday; it's hard to grasp how adidas gets value out of paying $120m over a decade (I'm sure a fair amount of that is in product that's worth like nothing to adidas itself).

I'll take any informed thoughts, but I mainly want @Jeffrey Martin's.
