I’m not advocating doing things against the rules, and if you are found to be breaking the agreed upon rules you should face consequences. Does the FBI really need to put people in prison for some of this? Tim Donnaghee? Sure. The Boston College thing with Henry Hill ? Hell yeah. Maybe I don’t know all the specifics in this case, but jail time seems excessive .

Teams like Kentucky,North Carolina and Duke cheat with impunity and the NCAA looks the other way
To your point I'm still awaiting to her about the punishment where UNC was found by the NCAA to have passed kids with grades, some of whom never even did any work in the classes (recall the JR can't read chants), for decades at that vaunted school of the celebrated upper crust of academia in their minds ACC.

If it were football the NCAA would nail the hell out of North Carolina,Duke and Kentucky

Its a form of trafficking minors. Maybe not of sexual nature. Thats why the sentences arent as long as violent criminals but still affecting young mens lives on a non taxable under table fraud.

They got off on a technicality. Since any student could take those classes, the NCAA determined it wasn't an "improper benefit to student-athletes." In the NCAA's mind, that differentiated it from a tutor changing answers on a test for a basketball player, because that is an impermissible benefit specifically for a student-athlete.

How would you feel if you son had been shopped and sold by people not associated with your family and they profit significantly over it? There is a ton of money that is being made by "handlers", etc and the kid & their family isnt aware whats really going on. Its the basketball version of Albert Means but on a much larger scale and involving millions of dollars.
