College Basketball Podcast: Did the government overpromise and underdeliver in the hoops bribery trial?

Christian Dawkins and Merl Code were (once again) convicted of federal crimes on Wednesday. Matt Norlander wrote about it. I wrote about it. Then we got together Thursday morning and discussed it from a variety of angles on a new episode of the CBS Sports Eye On College Basketball Podcast.

We opened with some general thoughts about the government over-promising and under-delivering as it relates to this college basketball scandal, which is largely what I spent my column on. After that, the conversation went like this:

  • 11:00: Which college basketball program was damaged most via these federal trials? Arizona? Kansas? LSU? Or somebody else?
  • 16:30: How do Arizona fans go about deciding when they can and cannot believe Christian Dawkins? What’s the process there? And how bad, for Sean Miller, was Dawkins’ non-answer about whether Miller knows Arizona players were paid? More or less, Dawkins said he couldn’t answer that question honestly because his answer might cost Miller his job.
