No Obligation Click Here. There has been more talk in recent weeks surrounding college basketball about FBI investigations and the future of coaches and programs than there has been about play on the court. Rick Pitino was the first very high-profile casualty of this attention to past sins, and all indications that he won't be alone by the time things are over. Arizona's Sean Miller has had to serve a one-game suspension already, and many coaches have been subjected to uncomfortable lines of questioning.
Basically, if you are a guy who has had high-level success in the last decade or more and your name isn't John Beilein then at least some people are assuming you are dirty. Some teams are facing more scrutiny than others. Michigan State, for example, has been at the heart of the negativity as these issues have coupled with the nasty Larry Nassar situation at the school, and a number of questions about sexual improprieties that have come up around the program.
Coach Izzo is scrambling, and it seemed to have an impact in their play on the court. Playing in the world's largest media market in New York for the Big Ten Tournament, Izzo faced a lot of questioning, and his Spartans were rolled over by the Wolverines in the semifinal.
Michigan State had already lost to Michigan once, so it wasn't an impossible upset, but you have to think that distraction for the endless questions played a factor in the result.
So now, as we head into the main events of the coming week when most of the tournaments happen, we have to wonder if these questions and added scrutiny will have an impact. An obvious target would be Arizona.
