No Florida colleges have been named in the nation-wide FBI probe into NCAA basketball programs… yet. Here is a list of “notable schools” that have been identified in the federal probe according to Yahoo Sports:

  • Clemson
  • Duke
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Louisville
  • Michigan St
  • N Carolina
  • NC State
  • Wichita St
  • Washington
  • Xavier

How will this news effect viewers, ratings and most importantly network revenue? One can only speculate. But with 2016’s March Madness generating $1.24 BILLION Dollars, you can bet some network execs are sweating under their collar.

I’m a Florida Gator through and through. The lovely Mrs. Fields is a Kentucky Wildcat. So, as you can imagine, there are at LEAST two times every basketball season that things are a little tense in the Fields household. As a matter of fact, one of those KY vs. FL games is coming up this Saturday (3/3) when the Florida Gators will host the Kentucky Wildcats at the O’Connell Center in Gainesville, FL.

Oh yeah… Go Gators!
