One thing is this: De Sousa played in approximately 20 games in the 2017-2018 season. So, if nothing comes out when the 2018-2019 season starts, then why not play him? What do you have to lose? I'd say, gamble -- sometimes you just have to roll those "tumblin' dice"... (Tom Keegan can appreciate the Rolling Stones allude). :)

Tom makes a point at around the 21 minute mark, asking the question "How many schools are a part of the investigation...8?" He goes on to suggest that from the perspective of the other 3 hundred 40 some odd schools that it isn't fair to just let this go.

However, it is not fair that not all of those schools were likely investigated and combed over for violations!

In this vein, Matt's response is valid: it appears disproportionate scrutiny is being placed on Adidas schools. So if you make a case against any of the schools being investigated...then FINE. But please don't try to use what's "fair" between schools as a standard for measurement.

I'm curious why the Under Armour reference allegedly to DeSousa having to reimburse another school isn't getting more attention or the story regarding Bagley's parents and their connection to Nike?

And until there's definite proof that any of the coaches at Kansas are complicit, I'd like to see more positive articles that Kansas is a victim here
