Uh Oh, The College Hoops Corruption Dominoes Are Beginning to Fall

The FBI has been investigating college basketball programs for what feels like decades now.
Recently, some rather big name schools have been implicated, and the NCAA is doling out their post-season bans and scholarship reductions like Rick Pitino would with lap dances.
Seemingly, every major conference school you can think of has been linked to some sort of malfeasance involving a booster or former player.
Don't look now, but here's the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets getting pinched:
BREAKING: Georgia Tech men's basketball is banned from the postseason for 2019-2020 season, put on probation for 4 years., plus other punishments Related to impermissible benefits from boosters. Here is NCAA announcement: https://t.co/NCtIJvdGxQ— Justin Felder (@Justin_FOX5) September 26, 2019
That post-season ban is really going to hurt:
Well played, sir.
Self doesn't appear to be worried, though, even after being hit with the classic lack of institutional control label.
The violations by Kansas Basketball come as no surprise to anyone.— College Football “Quotes” (@cfbquotes) September 23, 2019
You’re telling me a bunch of athletic 18 year kids who have the choice to attend any college in the nation, would choose to live and play in the state of Kansas? Of COURSE they were getting paid... pic.twitter.com/XA9UFbANZk
Of course, there are many other programs in the crosshairs, including Louisville, Arizona, and Auburn.
Not to mention LSU, whose head coach Will Wade was actually caught on a wiretap discussing forbidden things.
They're so screwed.
