And yet Louisville seems to be the one most screwed. Looks like the investigators intercepted a call where someone affiliated with Louisville offered 100k for Brian Bowen to commit, then 2 days later he did, which I believe came out of the blue as he wasn't heavily linked there previously.

The more I read about this story, the bigger it gets...

Well, hoping this doesn't somehow link back to Underwood.

Wait, Auburn is Bruce Pearl, right? Hard to believe he'd be caught up in something shady.

We supposedly wanted Evans as an assistant too :/

Though should point out he only worked for BU for one season. He was an assistant under Frank Martin for a season at KSU and then moved on to USCe with him

I don't think even Louisville would be so brazen as to make Pitino the next AD.

I'm going to choose to believe that this is all about the Brian Bowen incident.

Bama and Avery Johnson look to be in trouble too.

Bama's Asst. Athletic Director just resigned.

yeah, i'm feeling pretty good heading into the announcement. every writer out there seems quite confident he'll choose illinois. but of course, i'm leaving room for the usual illinois-recruitment disappointment.

Someone else can correct me, because Illinois boards are pretty unbearable on days like today so I only spent a minute or two reading, but:

From what i gather, Ayo and THT are former AAU teammates. THT felt overshadowed, changed AAU teams to get more exposure. Certain parties, which may or may not have included Ayo (but definitely the AAU coaches), took exception and there was some animosity. Things seemed patched up, THT took an official visit to UI last weekend, and most experts were predicting him to choose Illinois tonight. A few hours before the announcement, Illinois pulled their offer based on pressure from the AAU coaches. THT committed to ISU.

At least, that's what I gathered, and I'm not sure how much of that is verified information.

tl;dr AAU coaches are slime.
