    One of those arrested was Jim Gatto, head of sports marketing for Adidas. One would have to assume at this juncture that Adidas would be the focus of the FBI investigation...for now.

    Wow, I didn't know Chuck Person's middle name was Connors. How cool. And Chuck Connors played in the NBA too back in the olden days.

    It makes sense because Person's nickname is "the rifleman".

    Could the “death penalty” be on the table for the schools caught up in this scandal and are already on probation? I never thought I would be asking this question until today.
