if Frank Martin still maintains Brian Bowen's innocence based on the $CU compliance department's thorough investigation (rolling eyes).
Frank - Hey Brian...are you guilty?
Brian - No sir!
Frank - OK...that's good enough for us. Welcome to the team. You start classes on Monday
On Wednesday, Gassnola, who ran one of the Adidas scams, testified that he made payments to the family of Brian Bowen, among others.
Gassnola testified that he agreed to pay $25,000 to the family of Brian Bowen for their son to play for the Adidas-sponsored Michigan Mustangs grassroots program. Apparently the family was interested in leaving their current program and playing for a different one, but the family needed $25,000 to make that move.
Gassnola sent $7,000 in cash in a magazine to the Bowen family, while Adidas executive Chris Rivers paid the other $18,000.
Bowen's father testified last week that he did, in fact, receive payments from Adidas in addition to payments from former Louisville assistant Kenny Johnson as well as from several other teams recruiting his son.
Apparently ole Frank is still just as crooked and dirty as he was during his days in Florida where he was involved in one of the nations biggest high school basketball scandals.
Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
