  4. NCAA Basketball Scandal

    Mark SchlabachESPN Senior Writer FBI wiretaps intercepted telephone conversations between Arizona coach Sean Miller and Christian Dawkins, a key figure in the FBI's investigation into college basketball corruption, in which Miller discussed paying $100,000 to ensure star freshman Deandre Ayton signed with the Wildcats, sources familiar with the government's evidence told ESPN.

  6. NCAA Basketball Scandal

    Players from basically the top 20 basketball powerhouses have been named.... Either the NCAA quickly revises their rules on payments to players or this year's final four will look like South Florida, Duluth, South Saginaw Valley State, and Hobart.... Players from more than 20 Division I men's basketball programs have been identified as possibly breaking NCAA rules through violations that were uncovered by the FBI's investigation into corruption in the sport, according to documents published by Yahoo! Sports. Schools identified by Yahoo! as having players who possibly violated NCAA rules include Duke, North Carolina, Texas, Kentucky, Michigan State, Southern California and Kansas. At least 25 players are linked to impermissible benefits, including Michigan State's Miles Bridges, Alabama's Collin Sexton and Duke's Wendell Carter. The documents obtained by Yahoo! detail the work of former NBA agent Andy Miller and his agency, ASM Sports. Yahoo! reports that the documents show cash advances and entertainment and travel expenses paid for college prospects and their families. ESPN previously reported that as many as three dozen Division I programs, including many of the sport's traditional powers, might be facing NCAA sanctions once the FBI releases information it acquired during its investigation. A source familiar with the investigation -- which includes more than 4,000 conversations intercepted through wiretaps and financial records, emails and other records seized from Miller's office -- had told ESPN's Mark Schlabach that many of the sport's top coaches and players might be implicated, calling Miller's records "the NCAA's worst nightmare." Friday's report from Yahoo! begins to name the teams and players allegedly involved. At least six players were identified in the documents as receiving payments exceeding $10,000. They include Dallas Mavericks point guard Dennis Smith Jr., who received $73,500 in loans from ASM before he played for NC State; Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Isaiah Whitehead, who received more than $37,000 around the time he was a freshman at Seton Hall; and 2017 No. 1 NBA draft pick Markelle Fultz, who received $10,000. Other teams with current or former players who allegedly received payments were South Carolina, Louisville, Utah, Xavier, Wichita State, Clemson and Alabama. Other players named include former LSU guard Tim Quarterman, former Maryland center Diamond Stone and former Kentucky center Edrice "Bam" Adebayo. "These allegations, if true, point to systematic failures that must be fixed and fixed now if we want college sports in America," NCAA president Mark Emmert said in a statement Friday. "Simply put, people who engage in this kind of behavior have no place in college sports. They are an affront to all those who play by the rules." Emmert noted that the formation this past October of an independent Commission on College Basketball intended to provide recommendations on cleaning up the sport. "With these latest allegations, it's clear this work is more important now than ever," the NCAA president said. Kentucky, South Carolina, NC State and Xavier all issued statements saying they would cooperate with authorities. Wildcats coach John Calipari denied having any relationship with Miller or his associates, nor "utilized any agent ... to provide any financial benefits to a current or former Kentucky student-athlete." UK athletic director Mitch Barnhardt and university president Eli Capilouto said there also would be an internal review. NC State AD Debbie Yow said the university disassociated itself from Miller in 2012, sending a 10-year disassociation letter to the agent and his businesses. The letter cited NCAA reports that indicated Miller worked closely with an AAU coach, which "creates a vulnerability" for the school "that we cannot tolerate." Xavier coach Chris Mack, in a statement to Yahoo!, also said he has no relationship with Miller or any of his associates. "Beyond that, our staff has never created a path for him to foster a relationship with any of our student-athletes while enrolled at Xavier," Mack said. "Any suggestion that I or anyone on my staff utilized Andy Miller to provide even the slightest of financial benefits to a Xavier student-athlete is grossly misinformed." The FBI has been investigating college basketball bribes and corruption for at least two years. Last week, a federal judge in New York declined to dismiss criminal indictments against Adidas executives James Gatto and Merl Code, as well as Christian Dawkins, a runner who worked for Miller's ASM Sports. The men are among 10 people who were charged with wire fraud in September after the government accused them of funneling money from Adidas to the families of high-profile recruits. Their trial is scheduled to begin Oct. 1. Also last week, the U.S. Attorney's Office in New York dropped federal charges against Jonathan Brad Augustine, a former AAU director in Orlando, Florida, who had been accused of conspiring with the others to persuade two high school players to sign with Louisville and one with Miami.

  10. Highlights and lowlights of following your team

    Tampa Bay Lightning: Highs: Being there live to see the team win the Stanley Cup. Anything after Jon Cooper came aboard. Lows: Anything pre-Lecavalier. Hiring Barry Melrose as coach. But the most egregious is the drama with Chris Gratton. The team contended that it traded Gratton to Chicago for Ethan Moreau, Keith Carney, and draft picks. The trade was overturned as the NHL said he signed a restricted free agent tender with the Flyers. We then claim that we matched the offer sheet, but a smudged fax apparently overturned that. It then went to arbitration. In his book, Phil Esposito claimed that he then worked out a trade between the teams that would send Rod Brind'Amour, Mikael Renberg, and Karl Dykhuis to Tampa for Gratton, however before it became official the owner called him and said he worked out a deal for Dan Kordic and Dykhuis for Gratton.... The trade ended up being Gratton for Renberg and Dykhuis.

    Johnny Weir just now during the mens free skate: "That's something that needs to be looked at in the judging. Tom Brady doesn't get points for almost throwing to Gronk." As much as I may want to dislike Weir, he is probably my favorite commentator during the Olympics, and I find him incredibly endearing.
