Major D-1 University Is About To Be In Hot Water

Submitted by ChrisPerryCarry on February 24th, 2011 at 3:14 PM

I know this is frowned upon but I read a really interesting thread on Rivals and wanted to hear what the board thinks. Apparently a major news source is about to publish a report about a major D-1 school that not many would expect. There are supposed to be names, dates and amounts. It was stated that it close to coming out, maybe before Summer. They have to get all of their facts straight before coming out with it. It's supposed to be a huge news story and sounds like it could absolutely devastate whichever school it is. A lot of people are speculating that it is PSU or ND. If I find anything else out I'll let you know. Let the speculation begin.

I stood next to Coach Hoke and had a conversation with him and he is neither big nor egrediously fat.  Perhaps my perspective is a little skewed at 6'3 245lbs, but he's not Geroge Perles in his latter years.  I remember commenting to myself (I do that a lot) that he "looks bigger on tv."

It's not tennesse? The program is under investgation again, same with basketball and baseball. It seems like the NCAA is doing whatever it can to beat the UT athletic department into the ground.

into the ring for Illinois.  They aren't a school that would be "expected" to commit violations, I'd classify them as a major D-1 and they have regularly outperformed on the recruiting trail in recent years despite being pretty bad.

ND is a close second for all the same reasons.

Oklahoma would not be a surprise, they are one of the dirtiest programs in the country.  Kids go there because of the benefits and it's not just football players.  The whole AD is dirty.  I have lived in Oklahoma for over 20 years and Tulsa is pretty decent but the rest of the state is pure hell including Oklahoma City, Norman, and Stillwater.

I think ND fits perfectly. They recruit top classes every year and still suck. The fact that they pay players and still suck would be the surprising part.

It would be funny if they were banned from TV. They would lose their precious NBC deal and nobody would want them in their conference. They would have no source of revenue other than ticket sales, which would probably plummet.

You know the payoff is not going to be satisfying at all.  Either Western Kentucky gets hammered for one player sneezing during a compliance meeting or Penn State gets a slap on the wrist for running an incest orgy cult.

This is what it was

There is a major news outlet that is on the verge of publishing a report that will blow the lid off a major D-I program, and not a school many would suspect................

They are inches away from having all they need to go on it. I would expect something before summer and it will be a bombshell, with names-dates-amounts.

This won't be a message board blog, but rather, a huge news story. But to publish something like that, you better have your facts right. I think they've got it...............

heard on espn that the only schools with no major violations are northwestern, BC, stanford and PSU; and NW and BC have had point shaving scandals

 

if i had to take a wild stab i'd say PSU.  not with joepa's knowledge of course, but id have to imagine itd be pretty easy to hide from him
