I had to snicker at this section of the article...

Quote
"Apparel companies and agents know high profile basketball prospects will end up leaving college after their freshman season or not long after that. Since they know that, they will often provide coaches at college programs extra incentives to give to the player and for the coach to keep for themselves to make sure the player signs with a certain shoe company and agent when they become pros.

Today we learned the FBI not only frowns on such activity, they actually want to throw people in jail who commit such acts."

So from Mississippi State's perspective we just learned today that the FBI frowns upon bribery and tax evasion. Who knew?

If I'm a State fan, one name in particular (Reggie Perry) would worry me right now.

I was with some Arkansas people and media on the way to Starkville several years ago. I asked how in the world can they recruit to this place. They gave me the Johnny Manziel type money motion............................

I feel about 99% sure the Reggie Perry thing was a corrupt bargain.  If the FBI is aware of it, then I assume Howland will be gone, too.  He's done a great job recruiting players to Starkville - too great to be believable.

Well, Mom Perry deactivated twitter after multiple meltdowns, and the normally VERY active Reggie Perry hasnt tweeted in 7 days now, even though he was on a visit to Starkville all weekend. Im gonna say this was payout weekend...
