    No no Bias played for the Terps before they left the ACC.

    I had no idea this quadrant system existed and was being used this year but it’s why they’re a bubble team at the moment. Basically the losses in quadrant 3 are what’s bringing them down and teams losing to teams in quadrant 1 are getting a pass because the games were tougher. To me, you should be able to show that you can beat the tough teams rather than not have a loss or two to a lesser team but that’s not for me to decide

    Yay. Last night I acted like a State friend of mine does in pretty much every game, that is, I assumed the absolute worst and thought Duke would blow the doors off of the Heels.

    Lo and behold, my team won. That way of thinking is oddly liberating.

    As a State fan, I felt I needed to fix that for you.

    NC State will get the death penalty, UNC will be given an award from the NCAA for it perseverance in the face of adversity, and Duke's name will be expunged from the report.

    The NCAA is such a joke. I hope all programs start paying their players so the NCAA will have to sanction every program or look like an even more of a biased organization that favors certain programs than they already do.

    Clemson and South Carolina are also involved. I'm sure more names will drop soon.

    Basically, roughly half of the schools we cheer for here at HFCanes are going down in a blaze of glory one way or another.

    Someone on one of the WVU boards posted a list up of the teams implicated in this so far:

    - Duke
    - North Carolina
    - NC State
    - Kansas
    - Kentucky
    - Louisville
    - Michigan State
    - Maryland
    - Xavier
    - Texas
    - Alabama
    - Seton Hall
    - Utah
    - LSU
    - USC
    - Clemson
    - Wichita State
    - Washington
    - South Carolina

    Glad to see no WVU on there, also interesting that there's no Nova on there either.

    Don't go forgetting Virginia. Brogdon was implicated as having ties to Dawkins as well, so they're on the list in the recent past.

    I could have sworn someone within Baylors basketball program was involved in the **** that the football program is currently in. Surprised to not see them on the list.

    This is just recruiting violations mind you. They're dirty as ****, and probably for that reason as well, but that's not the primary reason with that program.

    Good call, yeah they'll probably be involved with this as well. Bennett's a great coach but some of the recruits that passed up much bigger programs to go there before this recent stretch shortly after he was hired is a bit suspect.

    I've heard that we (Virginia Tech) are at some point going to be implicated due to some shenanigans that went down during Seth Greenberg's time. I was a little surprised that we weren't listed in this one, to be honest.

    But at the same time, we've been so bad for so long at basketball, there might not be anything to gain by going after us. Literally every other fish is a bigger fish to fry.

    Is anyone truly surprised that things like this that have been rumored forever happened and are coming out when someone actually bothers to investigate?

    Dundon was at Cameron for the Duke UNC game with his pal Romo. How soon before he wants the fans coming up with chants like the Crazies?
