I laughed when I read this. Not because I doubt Beilein but because of Michigan basketball's rich tradition of "dirty" dealings (Ed Martin FBI, IRS and DOJ; Mateen Cleaves recruiting trip; Fab 5 cash; Traylor/Taylor era cash).

No biggie. I just find it funny.

Edit: And give them credit for cleaning it up.
The "cleanest coach in college basketball" title basically makes him the next guy to fall.

This is a great story.

The fact the players are the ones who are punished the most in this stuff is what is wrong with the current system.

Recruit Darius Garland has a composite ranking of #10 nationally and just committed to Vanderbilt.

Other offers included Kentucky, UCLA and Indiana.

Interesting to note that Duke pulled out once Tre Jones told Coach K he wasn’t going to Duke if they continued to recruit Garland.

Is this a sign of changing landscape due to FBI or just a right time, right place for Vandy to land a national top 10 recruit?

Gatto, Code and Dawkins seek dismissal of charges stating they may have violated NCAA rules but did not break any federal laws especially in light that the wire payments made by them helped recipients therefore were not fraud.

I'm guessing NCAA coaches are safe at this point as these guys probably haven't turned on anyone else while utilizing this defense. If the dismissal isn't granted, then some other coaches might have to worry.

I am pretty sure that unless the money was declared on their income taxes and for the businesses involved was itemized correctly as bribes, that some laws were broken.

Kansas and NC State now includes.

Kansas for Josh Jackson and Silvio De Sousa.

Edit: apparently wrong about Jackson. Although his mom took out large loans while he was in high school, he isn’t subject of adidas cash drop.

Maybe this is why Billy Preston never suited up this year?
