Respect for Anderson in light of FBI probe
« on: September 27, 2017, 06:06:04 am »

This really increases my respect for MA as a man and as a coach.  He has done well here at Arkansas, and especially well when you factor in that he is playing true amateurs, and it has now been shown that in at least some cases he was having to compete against paid quasi-professionals.  Given the handicap of running a clean program, 26-10 last year looks like an even more glowing achievement.

Time to turn over on MSU and the Perrys. He has been around the game long enough to know what went on with Adidas and Perry. Hope to see the crooks in Starkville go down hard.

That was before we realized that the FBI might get involved. I honestly had no clue that the FBI would give a rip about any of this. Glad they do though!

I get the feeling that Bielema is the same way. I know most just want to win, but I like the fact that our coaches seem to be honest men. That goes a long way with me.

Since yesterday, the premium on honesty in coaching has soared.  It's pretty nice to be very confident that our coach was not participating in what Dicky V. calls this "cesspool."  Who knows what Anderson might be able to accomplish on a level playing field.  He's done well even with cheaters stacking the deck against him.  Hopefully, those days are over and we'll see who's best in an honest competition.

I'm not breathing a sigh of relief until it's official no one at the UA is under investigation. We may not be an adidas school, but we've got a decent sized AAU presence in this state. Once the ten arrested folks start singing, who knows what'll come out?

I think they only really got involved because federal grant money started being used in the cheating

Not worried about CMA. If he were cheating, Monk, Allen, et al would have played for him. He is a great coach and a gentleman.

You could be right to withhold judgment for now, but the reason I'm very confident that we're clean is due to our never getting any of these five star guys.  If we were paying, we'd be getting the kind of top recruits Pearl and Howland have been getting. We've gotten solid recruits, but except for Bobby Portis, Anderson has never gotten a five star recruit.

Im actually even more impressed with Mike A now. He came into a league corrupted and improved recruiting and potentially lost a couple 5 star kids because of corruption but still managed to become competitive.

You may well be right.  We've lost great recruits like Perry, Monk, and Goodwin, and I now strongly suspect that we lost because we followed the rules, while the other guys cheated.  The other coaches must have sized up Anderson as a chump for not cheating, and he endured so much unjust criticism here for never being able to land these kinds of guys.  He never once complained, and he's getting the last laugh now.

Well, the first one is you praising Anderson for being on the up and up and the 2nd one is you agreeing with rzrbackramsfan that we got screwed for not cheating. 

So, I repeat, how do you square those two posts?

Yes, we were on the up and up and, yes, that put us at a disadvantage to those who were cheating, as rzbackramfan wrote.  How is that a contradiction? We have done remarkably well considering that at least some of the teams we played were cheating.  I think you're misreading what was written.  I don't think that rzbackramsfan meant that we should have been cheating, but rather that we lost several top recruits to cheaters and were thereby "screwed."

As much as I think college athletes should (and will) be paid, good on Coach Mike for running a clean program. I've hung out a lot with the guy, and he's not the type to cheat to win.

Arkansas has a history of being a clean program.  That's not new.  There have always been cheating programs yet the Razorback program has been second to none despite them.   Top coaches maintain top programs.  We've experienced it.  Now we're experiencing the opposite.

The shoe companies are interested only in players who are likely NBA prospects, one-and-done types, so the schools we should be suspicious of are the ones who get five-star prospects. No shoe company is going to pay money to a three-star nor, most likely, even a four-star.  Schools like Arkansas, Ole Miss, Georgia, Tennessee,Vanderbilt, and South Carolina are presumably clean since they rarely, if ever, get a five-star.  It's schools like Auburn, Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi State, Texas A&M, LSU, and now maybe Missouri that are very possibly dirty.  I'm not sure which group I put Florida in, probably with the cleans.

South Carolina is in this up to their elbows; they are the only school that fits the criteria established for 'School 2' in the FBI's statement of allegations (public university in S. Carolina, with over 30,000 enrollment) -- so they're involved.

Clemson maybe?  South Carolina is almost always towards the bottom in recruiting.  They've gotten good players, but no one-and-done types that I can remember.  No shoe company is going to pay a kid who has slim prospects of ever playing in the NBA, which would describe the three and occasional four star guys S. Carolina gets.  Their recruiting looks much more similar to ours than to, say, Auburn's.

Clemson is only at about 25k, even including the graduate school populations.

South Carolina is the only possible school that fits all the qualified descriptors of School 2.

OK, but if they've been cheating, they're not very good at it.  I can't think of one five-star going to S. Carolina, i.e., not one recruit a shoe company would be interested in paying.

From ESPN article

By then, the men were already making monthly payments to Oklahoma State assistant Lamont Evans, who the FBI says accepted at least $22,000 in bribes to steer his players toward Sood and Dawkins. Their relationship started when Evans was an assistant at South Carolina, but he left to join the Cowboys because it was "better players, more, more, more business."

Would that imply that the shoe companies weren't interested in the caliber of player generally recruited for S. Carolina basketball?  They get good players, but no NBA-ready ones, but maybe there was something else going on. We'll see.

No idea, I was just trying to show a direct link between the investigation and South Carolina.  If you haven't already found it, here's the link to the entire article.  It's a bit long, but a good read nonetheless.

That sounds to me like the actors in this decided that SCe wasn't lucrative enough for what they wanted to do. Like, they didn't get much traction at SC so they moved on. May end up being a good thing for SC

Probably fixing to get really big now since Nike has been implicated.

Too early to tell who's clean and who's not.
I can see a head coach not knowing what an assistant did or an AAU coach did that could get you caught up right in the middle of this mess.

Probably going to be some innocent head coaches having to deal with this.

Appears the FBI is going after Nike full bore.

No shoe company is going to pay money to a three-star nor, most likely, even a four-star.  Schools like Arkansas, Ole Miss, Georgia, Tennessee,Vanderbilt, and South Carolina are presumably clean since they rarely, if ever, get a five-star.  It's schools like Auburn, Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi State, Texas A&M, LSU, and now maybe Missouri that are very possibly dirty.  I'm not sure which group I put Florida in, probably with the cleans.

Not necessarily - even the kid at Louisville wasn't a one and done prospect / even though he was a 5 star.
I was listening to an AAU guy on the radio the other day - and he said he'd heard of many instances where players with mid tier talent were getting anywhere from $15,000 to $40,000.

Arkansas has a history of being a clean program.  That's not new.  There have always been cheating programs yet the Razorback program has been second to none despite them.   Top coaches maintain top programs.  We've experienced it.  Now we're experiencing the opposite.
experiencing the opposite? The horse crap.

Anderson sure is a burr in your saddle it seems.

To each their own though.

South Carolina is in this up to their elbows; they are the only school that fits the criteria established for 'School 2' in the FBI's statement of allegations (public university in S. Carolina, with over 30,000 enrollment) -- so they're involved.

I remember thinking when they got Dozier something was wierd about it. Martin was known to do some shady stuff in his highschool coaching years. Seemed like there was someone around Dozier with ties to Martin's highschool coaching career.

I don't think MA will have any problems, but I'm not ready to crow just yet. Nike is just as involved as Adidas, so Nike schools are not off the hook. Granted, if MA is cheating he's not very good at it, but time will tell. Just to set the record straight, Allen was not paid to go to Florida. Arkansas just didn't recruit him very hard because they thought Monk was a done deal. Every kid that leaves the state is not doing so for cash. Some just don't have the connection to the program that we might expect. Allen never led anyone to believe he was a hog. He just quietly went through the process and felt comfortable at Florida. I know for a fact that some other programs came at him with cash, but he never even took visits to them. I can't speak to the Monk and Perry situations. Both seemed to abruptly change directions based on some outside stimulus. We may never know about those guys, but maybe this investigation will send some of the rats into hiding.

I find this thread very amusing...Mike Anderson got DESTROYED when Perry decommitted by some of these posters, but now, it's all praise.  I wish folks weren't so quick to judge and critique a coach (especially over the commitment of a fickle teenager since none of us knows what really goes on).  And I suspect the moment that the bball team loses a game that they shouldn't, the bashing will come back.  LOL.

This is also why CMA keeps a close knit group on his coaching staff, this is exhibit A why he wouldn't do as some wanted him to do, go out and get himself an assistant who had a rep for recruiting, you don't know how the guy is doing it and ultimately could get you into the situation we see today.

This shouldn't surprise anyone though, how many years have we all sit here and discussed the dirt affiliated with the AAU circuit, the "handlers", "father figures", "aau coaches", etc. that had to be waded through to get to the top level recruits? Nolan complained about this when the AAU circuit first started to come into prominence, and yet it took this long and the Feds to step in to begin and try and clean this cesspool up.
