This gets more interesting by the hour. Now that the FBI raided Andy Miller's ASM office and now has his computer there is no telling who else will be implicated in this mess.

From Kentucky Sports Radio:

"FBI raided sports agency connected to scandal
By Drew Franklin on ©September 26th, 2017 @ 6:29pm

This scandal keeps getting bigger and bigger, and now there’s news that the FBI raided ASM Sports Agency in New York. NBA super-agent Andy Miller’s computer was confiscated in the raid.

That shouldn’t come as a surprise, according to Matt, who has heard rumors of an Andy Miller-UofL connection for years:

Miller represents several professional basketball players, including Louisville’s Peyton Siva. Jodie Meeks and Marquis Teague are the only Kentucky players on his client list; Nerlens Noel dropped him back in December.

Miller and ASM once employed Christian Dawkins, one of the ten people charged with fraud and corruption this morning in the FBI’s investigation into bribery in college basketball.

This is only going to get crazier."

No doubt about it. This is the "bomb" akin to Hiroshima. When the Feds are involved their will be no stone left unturned. Hold onto your seat and stay tuned.

Interesting quote from the article :

The FBI does not play. It has done what the NCAA could never even dream of. Undercover operatives. Wire-tapping. Years-long probes and mountain ranges of evidence. This is already an open-and-shut case, and as one federal official put it on Tuesday, and I'm paraphrasing: We're only sharing with the public a portion of the evidence we've uncovered.
Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.

There is accusation of multiple competing bribes from sportswear companies ... therefore I would assume that Nike or Under Armour schools (or AAU teams) will be accused too. Adidas didn't spend $100k on a bribe if one of their competitors wasn't prepared to spend $80k.

Could we be looking at the possibility of Louisville getting the "death penalty" from the NCAA? This is the second year in a row that they have been caught in a major scandal.

This just came across the wire. Both Pitino and Jurich have not been fired, just placed on leave.

Apparently their contracts have certain stipulations that must be met for termination to be final. They are almost certainly gone as soon as those requirements are met.

From the Washington Post:
Rick Pitino is out as Louisville attempts to clean house following federal investigation

"Louisville is moving cautiously because of the language contained in the contracts of Pitino and Jurich. Pitino’s contract says he must be given 10 days’ written notice of his termination"

"Jurich may have to be given 30 days’ notice of his dismissal"
