Richardson at X from 2007-09.

Heavily involved in the Mark Lyons and Kevin Parrom recruiting process.

Sounds like a poor remake of the movie Blue Chips.

If this doesn't end Pitino's career,nothing will.They're throwing around death penalty with the 'Ville.I only see this story getting uglier and uglier.

Did Richardson do this while at X? If so, does it affect us or the fact that he is gone does nor affect us?

They're talking about the death penalty for U of L. Hopefully that takes them off of CM's dream list of destinations.

Interesting that it's being reported Andy Miller's office was raided in conjunction with this investigation. I believe he represents SC and J Crawford. What years did the Az assistant arrested spend here?
Are you referring to Jordan Crawford?

I would doubt anything like this occurred while he was at X for 2 reasons:

1) As much as I like Xavier, I don't see big shoe companies offering big $$$ for recruits to come to X; and

2) I would like to believe this doesn't happen at X.


Also, listening to the Dana/Victory podcast, the consensus seems to be no way Mack goes to U of L under this set of circumstances given the likelihood of substantial penalties.

Pitino reportedly out today and I think the AD is not far behind.I'm sure UK fans would love to gloat but probably are a little worried too.

two things:
1) Mack will not take the UL job if they are hit with heavy sanctions and it appears that will be the case.
2) What are the chances of X picking up some players from UL when they start the exodus? This could really help the 2018 team and possibly this years team. There are at least 2 open scholarships for 2017.

Tip of the iceberg
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.

Richardson was involved in recruiting Tu, Lyons, and Parrom. This stuff has been going on for years.
