    My worry is this comes back to Washington. After Romar was fired my friend had a "source" that thought Romar's firing was related to either Michael Porter Sr. accepting the Missouri job or UW getting wind that Fultz was signed by funneling Nike money (he signed with Nike) to him via Chillious. Those were completely different scenarios so I never thought anything of it, but it causes some worry now since I heard this 5-6 months ago and all of this is now coming out.

    Romar was in on some big recruits that he didn't have any business being in on with how they performed. Immanuel Quickley was another major recruit (just verballed to Kentucky) from the East Coast that was very high on UW when Romar was here. All this could be nothing, but there will definitely be more names, schools, etc coming out in the coming weeks and months.

    This isn't tied to any specific school and if we're worried from a UW perspective this actually plays out perfectly fine for us given Romar was fired.

    There's virtually a 0% chance that Romar wasn't dirty at the end ... he may have done things the right way for a bit but once he lost a boatload of guys there's no question he started down the dirty path.

    My guess is that it started when needing to get a local caliber player like Tony Wroten and then when he realized the peanuts he was paying the local guys was getting blown out of the water by national guys he upped his pay for play and branched out around the country

    For anybody that doesn't think Seattle AAU is dirty ... who were the most successful programs recruiting around the Seattle area nationally?

    definitely chinteresting...

    from a separate article:

    As the situation developed, University of Arizona President Robert C. Robbins shared this statement on Wednesday:

    I have directed the University of Arizona to initiate an independent investigation into the alleged actions of Emanuel Richardson and to retain an external law firm to conduct the investigation.


    didnt name miller at all in the statement. i dont think romar is smart (nb4 isafnrc) but he was clearly playing 4d chess when he took an assistant job at zona this summer, he knew...probably because he was bidding on the same players.

    Nothing like an internal investigation to give up a couple fall guys and keep the top dudes safe

    Close the program down, and replace with varsity lacrosse.



    it's the only way to be sure.

    I always assumed Raphael Chilios was dirty. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets named in this as things unfold
