I really have a hard time believing the Universities and/or coaches are paying players. Alumni giving some cash, maybe. But I think the coaches and universities would be hard on supporting anything of the kind. It's BIG money to them if they get caught. I mean HUGE money... so I just don't see it being supported by ANYONE in the staff or University and in this day and age of Social Media, I don't see how you could do it under the table either.... it's just not the same world as it was 25 -35 years ago when I truly do believe it went on rampantly. Maybe that's just my own foolishness... but I see that comment by Conyis Miller more as sour grapes than anything else.
I don't think BB has the same Cash in-flow as Football does... but I don't follow it as much. Does BB pay out 40 million + to each university? Do the coaches make 7 million dollars per year salaries? I truly don't know, but I suspect that Football is a much larger revenue source for both the coaching staff and the university than BB is (on average, I'm sure schools like Duke see it differently).
