Bribery. Fraud. Conspiracy. Boxing, maybe -- but not college basketball,  and certainly not adidas!

Four college basketball assistant coaches, including Arizona's Book Richardson, have been charged and arrested for fraud and bribery... so far. Unbelievable? Maybe. But you know what? I think this is just the tip of the iceberg.

What's next? What if one of these assistants turns on their head coach? Then what? And what about other brand-name apparel companies? They run AAU programs just like Adidas.

Are they next? Are there more teams involved? I certainly think so! But whether anyone else is charged, you can bet your last dollar that this FBI investigation is sending a clear message to every basketball program in the country: Clean up your act... now!
