The latest person to get all sourced up about the NCAA violations facing the Syracuse Orange basketball and football program is ESPN's Brett McMurphy. And unfortunately for us, Brett is hardly ever wrong...
Syracuse hoops & football to face NCAA COI for alleged extra benefits/academic issues going back at least 10 years source told @ESPN— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) October 24, 2014
The academic issues you knew about. The extra benefits...well...not so sure about that one. Could be tied in to what we know, could be something totally new.
That's what makes this all so much...fun.
Going back at least ten years is also a new wrinkle. We know from the Syracuse.com article that they reached out to Doug Marrone and Greg Robinson for football and Jim Boeheim previously for basketball, so clearly someone else was on to this as well.
The details are surely going to keep trickling in so I'm sure there's plenty more fun to be had here.
