We Need Coaches, Not Pimps: Investigation Exposes NCAA Basketball Corruption… Again
The “sports” news over the last few days has had little to do, actually, with games. Opinions, discord, protest…and now a national scandal involving college basketball coaches and the FBI.
The acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York issued indictments this week to a collection of men that represent the underbelly of the college game (college basketball coaches, Adidas shoe executives, and agents). It was also made clear that this investigation is not closed. For three years they’ve been looking at cash that flows from corporate entities like shoe companies to “amateur basketball players” through a series of adults whose job should truly have been to look out for the best interest of these young players.
