    A transcript of a recording related to the college basketball recruiting scandal indicates Arizona assistant coach Emanuel "Book" Richardson claims he paid $40,000 to a high school coach to ensure Wildcats recruit-turned-signee, Rawle Alkins, qualified academically.

    Yahoo Sports reported the findings on Wednesday citing a court record of a transcript that had not been previously reported from a conversation between former agent Christian Dawkins, former Adidas consultant Merl Code and Richardson, who made reference to paying the amount so Alkins could be eligible to play as a freshman for the Wildcats in 2016-17. From the report:

    "So, again, is it something different each year?" Richardson said, generally referencing having to financially support recruits' families. "It is. Like I said, $40,000 to do that was totally extreme. If I had the chance to do it all over again, I would not do it. I'd try to barter something. I'd give blood. I'd give semen, something."

    Why do you think that i think there is nothing to see here ? I have never said that. Miller should be fired. Not a level playing field. Quit lying about what i say. What does it say about kids and families that take the bag. This state is full of kids and families that would never take a bag. Lots of kids have left without getting paid. Quit lying about what i say or feel. There is professional help for unhealthy obsessions.

    Point out a lie I have told about you have said.

    Agreed on your last point - have you sought help for your UVA, UW, Tony, Gaard obsessions?

    The FBI has Miller on tape discussing a 100k bribe - has has nothing come of that? LSU mothballed their coach for basically the same behavior.

    I canít provide a supporting opinion on the Gaard comment but I can surely understand how a fellow Gopherhole contributor can appreciate what Tony did for VA or how MN fans would love to have the record that WI has had in the tourney over the last 20 years.

    If you canít acknowledge achievements of others than just your own, then maybe you need to re-evaluate. Just saying.

    And what does it say about kids and families that still go to a school that cheats to win? They may not take the money themselves, but the endorse the method by playing for that school!

    As a current resident of AZ, this school came out early in their support of Miller and they are not turning back. Multiple reports of them having in-depth discussions with Miller and backing his word that he knew nothing. U of A basketball in Tucson is bigger than anything else...and it’s not even close.

    The guy is still recruiting Top 10 classes despite all that has come out.

    IMO, it says nothing. Many of these families don't have a lot of money and there is clearly a ton of cash floating around college basketball. If someone wants to pay you for playing basketball, I have no issue with them taking the money.

    That they have to decide for themselves what they stand for and support. I do not support cheating, sexual assualt, crimes, not stressing actual academics. Only speaking for myself.
