No B1G schools wrapped up in this?
How could it be possible that Ohio State, Michigan, and Penn State the three largest athletic bodies in the country have had NOTHING mentioned about them.

No one else out of the B1G that would have to compete with them paying players.

How has the B1G completely passed over this scandal?

Thad Matta, John Beilein and Pat Chambers aren't scumbags.

Illinois will be at least tangentially involved due to Oklahoma State being tied up in the scandal.

Yeah. Chicago columnist has already tweeted that school officials are aware that Brad Underwood's job could be in jeopardy.

This.

Thad basically said during his goodbye press conference he refused to give in to the current recruiting landscape. It's why Ohio State immediatley lost Kobi Simmons to Arizona out of nowhere. They came with cash, Simmons' dad asked Thad to match, he refused to.

There is a reason the B1G hasn't won't a natty since MSU in 2000. We don't get a lot of the one and done guys

There is no way in hell Penn State basketball is involved in this. If we are, Chambers has to be the single worst coach of all time

Wouldn't be surprised if Minnesota's name starts popping up. Apple doesn't fall far from the tree

Agreed no way PSU is cheating. Chambers does great with what he has. He is an awesome coach

This article, published a month ago, lists the coaches who are considered most ethical by their peers:

LINK

1) Beilein, Michigan
2) Brey, Notre Dame
3) Bennett, Virginia
3) Gard, Wisconsin
5) Few, Gonzaga
6) Holtmann, Ohio State
6) Izzo, Michigan State
6) Weber, Kansas State

Obviously, there are plenty of clean coaches, other than these 8. Also, there are probably a couple of B1G schools that will still get caught up in this whole mess. Nevertheless, it looks like 4 of the most prominent ones will be clear.

I want Chambers to build something here and maybe he is, as everyone keeps saying. But I'm one who's starting to doubt he building anything.

Under Dunn and DeChelis, there were at least some random years of success thrown into overall mediocrity, but Chambers continues to have only one season finishing above .500

I think the next two years are make or break for Chambers. Other than MSU and maybe NW and Minn the big 10 should be wide open this year, and PSU has some nice young talent. I think they finish in the top 7 of the BIG this year.

Iowa has had recruits that they have lost. Scuttlebutt was that they wanted matching cash offers they were getting elsewhere. Iowa refused to play that game.

Personally, I love this is happening. There are schools that try to play by the rules and as a result they can't compete with the big boys. Hopefully this makes the playing field more fair.

How the frick has Kentucky completely passed over this scandal?

FBI seems to have targeted a bunch of shitty basketball schools beyond Louisville.

In a sting operation, you'd think you would target the public perception sketchy BB programs.
