How does he get less than Book?

Well, first of all he was cooperating with the Feds to help them, something Book was not invited to do, second they have Book on video actually TAKING a bribe money that could potentially hurt the institution he worked for...Gassnola admitted to paying money...not sure its the same thing here...Book was an employee of UofA, whereas Gassnola was an Adidas consultant...he helped bring Gatto to trial...Book did not help anyone, let alone his own reputation.

Sounds like Gass decided to sing first and sing amongst the loudest. He's no longer a goodfella.

Yes, but regardless of video evidence, Gassnola admitted to his involvement in multiple bribery scandals.

Book was caught with $15K, which is nothing compared to the adidas deals that were discussed in the article.

Ridiculous that he won’t serve hard time.

Yes when the golf coach at what SC or Stanford, cannot remember which one had taken over 100k and got probation only. The system is more than flawed by differences in judges political or personal positions. Then there is a good amount of pure corruption within the judicial system itself which defeats the statement of innocence until proven guilty. The press also adds to the problem with things like everything from misleading statements and articles to flat out lies for much of the same reasons. Greed to get the story out first and political statements. Dukie V and his total bias to the original statement by slawbogger and espeon were and still are wrong with NO accountability or remorse when they know they are wrong because they willfully lied to grab the headlines. Trying to avoid the political stuff here, but it is what it is and it is corrupting everything in this country and the world. Allowing transgenders to compete in sports is a good example of it. If what happen with Trier cost him eligibility,  then transgender should cost those athletes their eligibility as well. Talk about unfair advantages.
I walked away from most NFL NBA etc years ago because of the greed and such and could easily do the same with the NCAA. It is just about there now. I love the game and the players who work so hard to get there but the system is broken. Corrupt!

One Sat a month help out at the local community center and after 6 months when nobody cares anymore suspend the remainder of the punishment for good behavior.  The entire thing is a fiasco and tiresome.  I thought I understood the point of the investigation but as it turns out I didn't and still don't.

On top of the FBI scandal you have the NCAA working secretly doing who knows what.  They will once again surface just before the season and find a school or two to punish using whatever punishment they make up with little regard to consistency.  In the case of Arizona there is no reason for this to drag on for 2+ years.  Investigate, judge and punish with concrete reasons for your findings and length of punishment in a timely manner. 

All of this makes is hard to continue following NCAA basketball.  I'm sure it's 10x worse in the world of NCAA football.

If the NCAA and FBI were working to fix the corruption I would be 100% behind them.  But, the NCAA especially wants to be perceived as working to fix the corruption while greasing their own pockets and not hurting the income stream.  If they really wanted to fix it they would severely limit the deals between the Nikes', Addidas' and the schools.  Make all schools pay the same.  No more of this sponsorship bullshite. 

And I have no idea why the FBI got involved.  Perhaps training for their new young FBI rookies.

I hear you LG.  I quit all professional sports a few years ago for the same reasons.  I follow 2 college football/basketball teams (Arizona and WSU).  My daughter attends WSU so they are my second school behind UA.  The corruption is ruining it and I'm very close to quitting the NCAA as well.  I'm trying hard to separate all of the corruption from the teams and kids.  They are fun to watch even if it is maddening to watch them sometimes.  The insane amounts being paid to college coaches who haven't earned it yet (I'm looking at you Sumlin) doesn't help.  When that much money is involved corruption will follow.

I'm there with you guys. Big money has ruined collegiate sports . . . at least the ones I'm interested in following.

I'd offer to coach the team for 40k a year but they wouldn't look at me. People go nuts when a school hires a HS coach no matter his success. With our run game the last three years there is NO reason we are not a run heavy team controlling the ball and the clock and wearing down the D in most games. Maybe a 70/30 run ratio.

I know thread is not football.

The thread WILL become football when that investigation is finally underway.

As previously mentioned, it's 10x more corrupt because there are 10x more "scholarships".  Go dig into how much tOSU, USC, Texas and the entire SEC pay their players.  ESPN would have a ****fit because their revenue would die after the corruption scandal wipes out college football.

I'd give it 1-2 years before anybody cares to start the investigation.  If/when it happens...boom.

Tanya McDowell got 5 yrs for sending her son to the wrong school district & Kelley Williams-Bolar got 3 years $30k fine for sending her daughter to the wrong school district...Felicity Huffman gets 14 DAYS...

14 days...

Guess  Thomas "T.J." Gassnola's race...(He's NOT a POC)...

IF you doubt there is such a thing as white privilege you've never examined the court system and looked at the hard cold data.
