    Anyway any unsavory behavior should be on Larranaga.

    Diasgree. And climate change is far more likely to impact the Atlantic Ocean than the George Johnson Pond.

    Any day out of jail is a better day.

    If Coach L was doing this, isn't it safe to say its been going on forever? Is it possible your Final 4 could be vacated?

    Big bucks for George Evans, Tony Skinn, Lamar Butler, Jai Lewis?

    Love how the two BCS schools we are playing this season are involved, can't hurt our chances to pull off the upset(s).

    If Pitino is fired, and the rumored to be involved player or players are suspended, I'm going all in on rooting/hoping/expecting the upset!

    My experience is that employees come to view acceptable behavior by the example their boss sets.

    I suppose anything is possible, UofR Fan. It is possible that even when L was in his prime, he was only buoyed by seedy backroom dollar deals.

    I know for a FACT L always admired Nick Nolte's performance in the movie Blue Chips. Maybe he took that admiration a little too far.

    When did he know? That is the question. I personally think his bad behavior may have started in his older years, however.

    From yesterday:

    Dave Paulsen @PaulsenDave
    Sickened but, unfortunately, not shocked by these revelations. Horrible stain on our profession.

    I wonder if it was the adidas connection that made these games happen? Or just a coincidence?

    That's a pretty interesting question, never thought about it. Next time I'm talking to someone in the AD I'll ask if that has any effect.

    Absolutely! Because we have/had so much big money around our program, it's got to make you wonder. I'm sure shoe companies couldn't wait to get their potential clients to Fairfax! Especially with how much buzz was around the program before the final 4! We definitely cheated!

    I mean where does it stop? The state of the art roof? The amazing ultraHD video scoreboard? The football stadium?

    Tough to get any more breaking news. Larranaga has holed himself up at his compound in Miami. He emerged to get the paper in his bathrobe this morning, but continued to have no comment. He looked angry.

    I will continue to post updates as they come available until the weekend when I like to do stuff.

    I am now told that the above pic is not of Larranaga, but of the Itie Caputo with his new hairpiece.

    Apologize for the confusion.

    Remember when Larranaga pretended his move was mostly about $$$$ for his assistants?

    Well, I guess his assistants are in a position where they can better enjoy the fruits of capitalism now...

    For a while. Then jail. Konkol and Huger were wise to get out when they did.

    Larranaga could shoot a man in broad daylight in downtown Miami and I would still remember him only for what he did for George Mason.
