    If you're the reading type... Page 7 is pretty interesting.

    I for one am shocked to see Auburn involved. I mean, a Bruce Pearl led team doing something corrupt? Shocked. Even though Chuck Person is the one named I would find it very hard to believe he was acting alone without Pearl knowing anything.

    Louisville is definitely involved here, too. If you read the docket, they're definitely "University-6."

    The recruit appears to be Brian Bowen. He was paid $100,000 to attend Louisville, and amazing made his decision "out of nowhere" and was considered a coup for Louisville when he committed.

    "University-7" appears to be University of Miami.

    In short, shoe company executives (looks to be Adidas and Nike) were funneling money to players and their families in exchange for "coercing" them to attend certain schools. The schools identified in the lawsuit appear to be Louisville and Miami; however, certain coaches such as Chuck Person are also specifically named as being part of this but part of a separate and distinct lawsuit. In addition to illegally paying for players, the "student athletes" involved were also coerced/pushed toward using a specific agent and financial advisor if/when they were to make it to the NBA.

    Basically, it's a packaged-deal. We pay you, and you play for us and when you turn pro you use our agent and financial advisor. We pay you $100,000 or $150,000 now and you eventually pay us back in the long run by letting us represent you and handle your millions down the road.

    There's a little more to it than that (such as how the money was laundered in order to get to the players and their families), but in short that' sums it up.
