I read Izzo's comments, saying neither I nor my staff knew anything about this issue with Bridges. Now today it comes out that Izzo's assistant, Stephens, was trying to funnel money to Bowen to get him to MSU. What about that one, little Tommy? He's you assistant. Oh yeah, "I didn't know what my assistant was doing!?!?!?"Bridges’ mother is alleged to have taken a $70 meal and a $400 cash advance from an agent. More may come out, and probably will, but $470 from an agent to a player’s mother isn’t something a coach can really control or reasonably be expected to have knowledge of.
There just isn't smoke around Izzo, it's an effing forest fire.
