I'm glad this has finally come out. I was very surprised to see Emery playing in the blue/white scrimmage game with all this going on. I think Boosters (of which basically everyone who is a fan is) need to chill out and not try to buy friendships with young kids. It's frankly creepy.
For starters, at a minimum, at an absolute minimum, ;) I I suspect the Blue Team will have to forfeit the game to the White Team.

I know of at least one other problematic basketball booster not yet mentioned in the news.

To be fair though, there's more football stuff that hasn't come out yet either. So... Yay!
Can't wait! BYUtv could start a "TMZ" for athlete shenanigans.

I don't know about the rest of you, but when I was 22 I was not going on vacation with 40 year old dudes. So weird.

Student athletes: your fellow, non-athlete peers do not get free cars, nor are they whisked away on vacations by middle-aged adults.

We are literally talking about tickets to Harry Potter World. The kid was having a hard time, going through what appears to be a messy divorce (the ex-wife is behind the allegations), not to mention all the message board hate he gets for just being on the court.

He'll get 1-3 games maximum, or I'm giving up the NCAA completely. If they're going to buy a $70,000 truck for Jameis Winston's dad with no penalty, and Nick goes down for Lego Land, that'll be it for me.

It might benefit the team more for him to miss the season. We got a new kid who can dish out assists without turning it over.

Now you're just being silly. We don't need our best defender? Even off the bench? This is the kind of online badgering I'm talking about.

Whoa BG. You think Nick reads CC? Besides should you be casting stones? I known I’m guilty and shouldn’t. But Im Not sure you can call this badgering. Unless I’m missing something. The new guard does show promise. Even off bench.

North Carolina can literally fake 100s of classes awarding players 1000s of semester credits and openly conduct academic fraud for years on end and the NCAA won't do anything. But watch them throw the book at BYU and Emery.

It's a cat and mouse game. BYU is an easy mouse to catch.

What they did was literally not against the rules because any NC student could take those classes. Now they will get in trouble with their accreditation provider, but not NCAA.
