I’m pretty sure you have nothing to worry about. If there was a MVC team implicated it would probably considered the worst return on investment.

There is no way 100 schools are involved in this. The shoe companies are looking for big stars. The only sure turn on investment have to be schools who are seriously recruiting 5* players. I would be surprised if the numbers were much more (if any) than 20-25 schools. If you make a list of most likely(Arizona, UCLA, Oregon, Kentucky, KU, LSU, North Carolina, Auburn, Louisville, Baylor, OSU, etc. etc. this is enough to rock the NCAA world.

I'm just repeating what what was reported nationally.

The thing to remember is that the ones who get commits from five star guys probably aren’t the only ones offering money. I wouldn’t be surprised if schools like SMU, WKU, and even schools like DePaul wouldn’t be listed among the blue bloods, but those teams could very much be included. If teams from Kentucky all the way down to WKU are involved, the number could be 100 programs.

But the scandal is sonnected to shoe companies not just giving out money from boosters which is the old way. Bamas Asst. AD of NCAA enforcement Just resigned. They hav been recently all of a sudden been getting 5* recruits. Look for more arrests. SMU doesn't have Larry Brown. But the ISUR fans should know if Jankovich cheats. I think it will be messy because NCAA officials may be involved and at least turned away to see nothing but I don't see 100 schools.
