    If Coach Miller is found to have known about the money, then it would seem his career as a D-1 coach might well be over...

    Which recruit?

    When will Miller resign? Tomorrow or after the NCAA Tournament or never?

    Ayton.

    Later tonight/tomorrow am, or he "doesn't know anything about it" and rides it out.

    I don’t know if he can ride this one out. Caught in wiretaps telling Dawkins he will pay 100k.

    I doubt he can ride it out as well, but him being caught in wiretaps was all "according to sources", so I'll leave open a window for UA.

    Would Arizona potentially decline an NCAA tournament invite this year, knowing they're going to have to vacate it anyway because the Ayton recruitment was tainted?

    Wonder if they get the death penalty. All of their recruits will be under severe scrutiny and will be let out of their loi's. Makes us the preeminent west coast bball power!

    That was really dumb!

    You would think that he would taken the trouble to talk with Dawkins in person if he was willing to pay out 100 grand.

    The wiretaps are "according to sources".

    I agree that its 99.9% likely, but these haven't been confirmed.

    Yes, and what "source" is gonna involve the fbi if it wasn't true? Zona's done, Miller will be gone by tomorrow at the latest and Ayton has played his last game. Recruits will all bail. They're toast. Read their board, their own fans are resolved:

    Is there a penalty for the players who took the money? I’m thinking about Kyle Kuzma who is a terrific rookie for the Lakers.

    Any source? It's not like claiming the FBI as a source is a truth serum.

    I agree with you, it's extremely likely he was involved/guilty, but I'll give him the benefit of doubt until confirmed.

    I don't think there is anything that can be done to players that went pro - maybe if they graduated with a degree it could be revoked? As for current players they're gonna be persona non grata at their respective programs pretty soon.

    Arizona will announce Miller's departure first thing Monday morning. Look for LSU's Wade to be a hot commodity to replace him

    BTW I called this several months ago when the FBI visited Miller at his house.

    Ugh, if it wasn't true, the fbi would immediately put out a press release denying this; they haven't because it's true. Zona is done.

    They're not gonna wait until Monday, they have a game tomorrow. He''ll be relieved of his duties tonight, or early tomorrow. Ayton's done too.
