Luke Del Rio on payments to players: 'It's happening everywhere, people'
On Friday, Yahoo! Sports released its piece on the FBI’s investigation into college basketball, naming several big-time programs, coaches and players in the report.
As we wait to see what sort of repercussions the investigation will have, it’s fair to wonder if this sort of pay-for-play stuff is happening in other big-money sports.
On Saturday morning, former Florida QB Luke Del Rio took to Twitter to say he finds it funny how surprised people are by Friday’s report, adding that it’s happening everywhere:
And it’s hilarious how shocked people are that it happened…. it’s happening everywhere people. In multiple sports. Trust me https://t.co/KujONhJgdq

As Del Rio played at Alabama, Oregon State and Florida during his college career, it’ll be interesting to see how those schools handle his comments.
Alabama was already named in the FBI report, though Nick Saban’s football program wasn’t.
