Here we go again. Will any result in real punishment?

This is a federal probe. People will go to prison. The NCAA's Emmert will resign, as will some of the best-known coaches, if they aren't indicted first.

I don't see major sanctions. Too many blue-bloods involved.

The NCAA will try to make themselves look good by coming down hard on the violators. Duke being on the list is a big black eye for NCAA Basketball. If true, it could tarnish the reputation of Coach K, whom was probably the most respected name in the sport.

Reading through about half a dozen "reports" the biggest violation I can find tied to Duke is that one players mother, (Wendell Carter) had lunch with someone that worked for the agent. $70. Yet the sensationalism of these "journalists" lets them claim that Duke is among 20 schools involved in a Federal Investigation.

It will be interesting to see how they handle a minor infraction versus more serious ones such as loans to HS and College athletes, pay to play, etc.

I wish we were winning enough games to arouse suspicion from an investigator.

to quote Bob Devaney.."I don't want to win enough games to be put on probation, just enough to cause an investigation"

Websites "reporting" on Yahoo's article and leading with the name "Duke" in the header is such blatant click bait.
