    Agreed, we're only talking about a handful of players. There are very few teams that rely on the one and dones. Bodes well for teams like GU, who really develop their players over a 3-5 year period.

    I believe GU has ran a clean program, but even the mention of money in the past on this board has me a little bit concerned.

    Almost certainly. This is only the beginning. Let’s see if Miller cut a deal. My guess is he did.

    Curious to see how Coach K’s smug shot looks whenever he gets in front of a camera and discusses this, if he ever does. That’s one program I won’t mind seeing get some come uppance

    When college coaches get paid MILLIONS because “amateur athletics” provide entertainment that creates a BILLION dollar TV contract....who woulda thunk there’d be a problem

    UA Board of Regents should be part of the fallout too. What benefactor / Donor would Trust this school w their money after decisions like this?:

    Miller, 49, is a three-time Pac-12 Conference Coach of the Year and has a 242-72 record in his ninth season with the Wildcats. The Arizona Board of Regents approved a contact extension for him in February 2017, which increased his annual salary to at least $2.9 million through 2022. He has denied knowledge of Richardson's alleged scheme to bribe players to sign with Arizona.

    "As the head basketball coach at the University of Arizona, I recognize my responsibility is not only to establish a culture of success on the basketball court and in the classroom, but as important, to promote and reinforce a culture of compliance," Miller said in a statement released in September. "To the best of my ability, I have worked to demonstrate this over the past eight years and will continue to do so as we move forward."

    If Miller is fired for cause, his contract is written in such a way that he would still receive more than 85 percent of the money he is owed through May 31, 2022.

    Miller's contract provides that even if he is fired with cause, the university would have to pay his base salary. The contract defines his base salary as his salary plus his peripheral salary. That adds up to roughly $10.3 million through May 2022. The only part that Miller wouldn't be entitled to is $1.7 million from Nike and IMG that is due to him if he completes his contract.

    Well, I hope this doesn’t mean the end of the Mark Few/Tommy Lloyd era.

    Think of what value a successful recruiting, clean coach now commands on the market place.

    Our recruits are going to be under pressure now too.

    I don't see how any of these allegations against Miller could be true. I'm pretty sure I remember the U of A Admin conducting an internal investigation back in Oct and releasing a statement that Miller was in the clear. Can anybody verify that?

    could be the retirement opportunity of a lifetime for Mark Few.....ask double what Miller was making and sign a 6 year contract and retire after completion.

    could be a bidding War Ducks & Cats ....

    Sean will be on the tweet trolling like Keating soon...

    Thanks for the link. Reading all the comments on that thread was depressing. Feel sorry for their devoted fans. Just think, today was their game day - best day - they wake up this morning and realize the nightmare is real. Terrible times.

    I know I’ll be watching ESPN tonight to see if Romar coaches...

    How does paying players a stipend or a wage help end this? There will still be shady people offering them more money to sign with their school.

    Exactly, has absolutely nothing to do with this scandal whatsoever. Just people pushing their agenda through any available means.

    My solution would be:

    NBA doesn’t take one and dones anymore. Two years college.
    NBA expands and invests in D league.
    Some kids will take chances on D-league stuff, the draft, etc.
    Kids get one shot under 20 to move from D-league to College. 2 year clock starts then.
    D-league draft and separate nba draft. Can only be nba or dleague drafted senior year of HS or at 18.
    Stipend of some sort. Ability to work, etc for athletes. (This is the hardest part)

    Yet none of those things stops coaches from doing whatever it takes to get top recruits. Bottom line is some coaches will do whatever it takes to win. And the other bottom line is the NCAA will never ever truly come down hard on the big boys for doing it. They are already scapegoating the SYSTEM rather than the pepretrators.
    Its absolute nonsense to blame the rules and rule makers for breaking the rules rather than the ones actually breaking the rules. Arizona should get the death penalty for something as bad as this, if true. Arizona has doubled down on protecting Miller and found their scapegoat in the assistant as if Miller doesn't tell his assistants who and what they should go after and how.

    All over the news here in PX. Just cause shown for wiretap, got him dead to right. An assistant coach was in that group of ten that were arrested. Really ugly down here.
