Is the FBI investigation just pertaining to basketball?  Just saw an article on jump ball about Bamma holding a player out of exhibition game because of the investigation. If Auburn and Miss St and now it seems Bamma pay basketball players, what about football players?

It's hard to say how far the investigation may ultimately go.  It's not specifically limited to just basketball but the underlying structure of the AAU and the shoe company camps and the overall sleaziness in the recruitment process has been around longer and is more ingrained in basketball than football.

College Basketball is so corrupt it makes football look like church camp. Recruits who make "business decisions" are SOP at a lot of places.

Part of it is simple economics because the teams and rosters are so small: You pay two NBA-caliber players and you probably go to a Final 4.
