Richardson was involved in recruiting Tu, Lyons, and Parrom. This stuff has been going on for years.
Good news is that none of those guys were elite players, which would lead one to believe they wouldn't to the type of players the apparel companies would try and snag. I'm a huge SM fan for what he did for X, but going after guys like Book R to be on your staff comes with a risk. There's no evidence Sean knew what was going on, but it's hard to fathom his hands are totally clean. I hope he's is.

Regardless, one of his staff committed a major NCAA violation. AZ should lose schollys at the very least.

lot of pressure at Zona to win.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Other than the annual rodeo (school holiday, I may add) UA is the only games in town.

Hearing from a friend who works for a big Louisville donor that they are 100% targeting Mack for their next coach. Let's hope they get the death penalty so this doesn't become an issue.

which is why they put pressure on their coaches to produce.
