"Mr. Miller, do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?"

Yeah all this is is Early saying Gottfried knew. I'm sure he will come out and deny it. But Goodman is already piling on Gottfried on Twitter.

Yeah the bullshit here is that these guys were apparently really shitty at cheating. Get a bag man to do the dirty work. Don’t let the head coach or assistant coach do it. This is cheating 101

But can’t you see it coming already. State hit with 10 years of scholarship reductions, UNC invited by NCAA to celebrate their championship pedigree and doing things the right way.

more bribes involving college, this is also "I'm shocked gambling is going on in this establishment":

(there's a very minor sports connection)

https://www.npr.org/2019/03/12/702539140/u-s-accuses-actresses-others-of-fraud-in-wide-college-admissions-scandal

Quote :
"Federal officials have charged Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin and dozens of others of mail fraud, in what the Justice Department says was a scheme to cheat college admissions standards by fabricating academic and athletic credentials and paying bribes to help their children attend prestigious universities.

"We're talking about deception and fraud — fake test scores, fake credentials, fake photographs, bribed college officials," said Andrew Lelling, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts.

Lelling says 33 parents "paid enormous sums" to ensure their children got into schools such as Yale, sending money to a man named William Singer for faking records and obtaining false scores on important tests such as the SAT and ACT.

"Singer's clients paid him anywhere between $200,000 and $6.5 million for this service."

In most cases, he added, the parents paid between $250,000 and $450,000 per student.

"These parents are a catalog of wealth and privilege," Lelling said. "They include, for example, CEOs of private and public companies, successful securities and real estate investors, two well-known actresses, a famous fashion designer, and the co-chairman of a global law firm."

The parents who are being charged, Lelling said, were already able to give their children "every legitimate advantage," but he added, they "instead chose to corrupt and illegally manipulate the system for their benefit."

Other defendants include university athletic coaches and college exam administrators.

Lelling cited one case in which the Yale women's soccer coach took hundreds of thousands of dollars to put a student on the team, despite knowing the student did not play the sport.

The charges are part of a case that had been kept under seal. They were revealed on Tuesday, as Singer pleaded guilty to a number of federal crimes, Lelling said.

In addition to Singer, court documents name the following defendants, who are charged with mail fraud:

Gregory Abbott
Marcia Abbott
Gamal Abdelaziz
Diane Blake
Todd Blake
Jane Buckingham
Gordon Caplan
Hsin Chen
Amy Colburn
Gregory Colburn
Robert Flaxman
Mossimo Giannulli
Elizabeth Henriquez

Agustin Huneeus, Jr.

cuts from the AP article:

Quote :
"Authorities said coaches in such sports as soccer, sailing, tennis, water polo and volleyball accepted bribes to put students on lists of recruited athletes, regardless of their ability or experience. That, in turn, boosted the students' chances of admission.

Among the parents charged were Gordon Caplan of Greenwich, Connecticut, a co-chairman of an international law firm based in New York; Jane Buckingham, CEO of a boutique marketing company in Los Angeles; Gregory Abbott of New York, founder and chairman of a packaging company; and Manuel Henriquez, CEO of a finance company based in Palo Alto, California.

The bribes allegedly came through an admissions consulting company in Newport Beach, California. Authorities said parents paid William Singer, the founder of the Edge College & Career Network, approximately $25 million to get their children into college.

Prosecutors said Singer was scheduled to plead guilty to charges including racketeering conspiracy.

John Vandemoer, the former head sailing coach at Stanford, was also expected to plead guilty Tuesday.

Colleges moved quickly to discipline the coaches accused of involvement. Stanford fired John Vandemoer, UCLA suspended its soccer coach Jorge Salcedo, and Wake Forest did the same with its volleyball coach. "


1. Stanford has a sailing team?
2. Local ACC connection, although they couldn't find out the guy's or girl's name.

Quote :
""For every student admitted through fraud, an honest and genuinely talented student was rejected," Lelling said.

Lelling said the investigation is continuing and authorities believe other parents were involved. The schools themselves are not targets of the investigation, he said.

No students were charged. Authorities said in many cases the teenagers were not aware of the fraud.

Authorities said coaches in such sports as soccer, sailing, tennis, water polo and volleyball accepted bribes to put students on lists of recruited athletes, regardless of their ability or experience. That, in turn, boosted the students' chances of admission. "


Well these kids didn't cut the slack but because they were considered to have magically played sports, they became acceptable. Now what other sports does that happen?

Quote :
"Loughlin and her husband allegedly gave $500,000 to have their two daughters labeled as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team, even though neither participated in the sport. Their 19-year-old daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli, who has a popular YouTube channel, attends USC.

Court documents said Huffman paid $15,000 that she disguised as a charitable donation so that her daughter could take part in the college entrance-exam cheating scam.

Court papers said a cooperating witness met with Huffman and her husband, actor William H. Macy, at their Los Angeles home and explained to them that he "controlled" a testing center and could have somebody secretly change her daughter's answers. The person told investigators the couple agreed to the plan.

Macy was not charged; authorities did not say why.

Macy told Parade magazine in January that the college application process for their daughter was stressful. The couple's daughter, Sofia, is an aspiring actress who attends Los Angeles High School of the Arts. "
