  • Kentucky's Name Comes Up Again in Federal Corruption Trial

    This time it's as financial advisor Marty Blazer was testifying.

    Blazer testified that Christian Dawkins claimed that Kentucky, Duke, and Carolina all had money men who were "willing to pay whatever's necessary" for Zion Williamson.

    Sound like hear-say. Objection your honor.

      It wouldn't surprise me. Cal, Sandy, et al can't possibly know what all the players their families and boosters are doing at any given time.

        It came out yesterday that Rick Pitino might not have known what was going on at Louisville (at least regarding the adidas stuff).

        That's hard for me to believe but that's what was alleged. It was the first hint of vindication for Pitino in this whole mess.

          I know some will give me some backlash for this but i just don't think Pitino would have been directly involved with payoffs, especially the Adidas stuff, i just think he is way smarter than that. What happened with and Karen will always be between Pitino and his wife, things happen whether it's right or wrongin the real world afterhours having drinks. Even the whole Hooker deal i suspect Pitino may have heard about this but it's not like Rick was on campus in the dorm getting his freak on with the players, again i don't believe Pitino would call the shot to have Hookers entertain new recruits, just don't believe that.

          As for the Adidas stuff, that arrow points at Jurich(family on adidas payroll) and i firmly believe that Jurich would do whatever it would take to land recruits and stay competitive at all cost. Pitino has the mentality that "i can outcoach anyone" whether it's with a group of 2 stars or a bunch of 5 stars. I do believe Cal and Kentucky put pressure on Rick to recruit better players but Rick's ego would never allow him to bow down to 5 star kids who think they know it all, Rick was burnt a few times one the one and done route and i think he prefers players he can develop over two to three years and learn his system..

          Anyways, Rick may end up walking out of this alive...

            Obliviousness in what went on in his program isn't vindication, IMO. It's reinforcement that he can't be trusted to run a program. It becomes a question of corrupt or incompetence. Neither are complimentary.

              It's not exactly incompetence. These guys know the rules. And most of them (apparently not Sean Miller) know they are better off telling their staff to "get me the best players out there and don't tell me how you did it." Plausible deniability goes a long way in a polygraph. If you said you don't want the details then you didn't know the details.

              Probably no program out there was filthier than UL under Jurich. But that doesn't mean all of them aren't involved in the plausible deniability game and getting players who got $ from someone.

                Sure, but that's what everyone's being asked to believe/accept - that it's one or the other.

                    An assistant today alleged Sean Miller was giving Deandre Aston $10k a month.

                          If there is a contract with signatures, that would be easy to prove.
