Neither head coach Bill Self, center, nor any University of Kansas coach or staff member has been accused of any wrongdoing, though Kansas Athletics is in the midst of a contract extension with Adidas.

Segment 1: Adidas and KU have been implicated in an FBI investigation of collegiate basketball.

An FBI indictment released last week alleges that the families of two University of Kansas student-athletes received illegal payments from Adidas as incentive to sign with the school. While the university is not believed to have known about the fraudulent payments, KU continues to work with the athletic apparel company on a $191 million contract extension. We asked how this news could change KU basketball and NCAA athletics.

Segment 2, beginning at 22:08: Preparing for revisions to federal tax code.
