With the huge PGA/LIV golf merger announcement coming out this week, the sooner they can get this story out the better as the national media will be focusing on the golf story for the forseeable future. Especially as more info comes out and the PGA/LIV money involved is made public.
What we should really be hoping for is either Tom Brady announces a comeback or Lebron announces retirement. Really, any really big NFL news will overshadow this story.

They would be wise to drop this simultaneously with the potentially major political news that is rumored to occur some time in the next week or so.

I'm not saying it will be a big stain. But it will be a huge deal because of the implications. And it's a slow sports season. But we will get some negative attention. I'm just saying let's get it over with because I'd rather talk about football. Didn't expect my post to attract so much boomer attention.
When do think the 'verdict' will come down? And can anyone tell me who are the 5-6 football players rumored to be involved?

I can certainly understand keeping that second question under wraps until a penalty or verdict comes out.

Is College Football Live on ESPN better? Because it will be the top story on there too. If you're not into podcasts, you're not that into college football. That's where a lot of fans are listening. Nobody is watching the sterile ESPN garbage anymore old man.
Lol. “If you’re not into podcasts, you’re not that into college football”. I laughed, harder. Next you’re going to tell me fantasy football is cool.

Post 438 in this thread mentions the names that seem to be cropping up.

If we were a significant football program this would be a big deal for national media. But the spillover potential has national implications. This isn't a coaching or recruiting scandal. Kids F'd up.
Even if we were a significant program, it would be a one day story and thats it. This isn’t some big scandal. Its some college athletes breaking rules by gambling online like millions of other regular people do every day. Bfd. The handwringing over this is hilarious.

Also, I don’t listen to sports podcasts. I’m not a boomer either. I guess I’m not a big cfb fan though

I think it has the potential to be a big stain, honestly. Even though it shouldn't be. But you'll have the easy talking points about Campbell and "culture" that people won't be able to resist dunking on. Look at the coverage of realignment. People/networks will have their own narratives to force and it may be at our expense, whether it should or shouldn't be.

The narrative *should* be how widespread is this really and why is only the state of Iowa doing something about it and what should the appropriate punishments be.

Outside of Iowa no one will even care after 4 days.

I'd imagine they already know the penalty as initially given. I thought the appeal process is what typically took a long time. So probably mid-August knowing the NCAA.
