I am not really taking shots at the NCAA - they are a clown show. I am more thinking back to the big headlines from the government agencies and the chest thumping and posturing about how the game will be cleaned up and big names are going to roll. The roll out of the accusations is always greater than the result, and again what is the news here - schools are cheating? No way. I think our investigators and prosecutors should be frying bigger fish.I think folks are jumping the gun about castigating the NCAA about inaction. I think they're still in the "hearings" stage and haven't issued any punishments or exonerations for any of the cases yet. Yes, assistant coaches are going to jail after guilty pleas because they are the ones on the wiretaps talking about money. Whether they are taking the fall for head coaches is known only to the coaching staffs. I do believe that Archie Miller and Rick Pitino were on the tapes, and Arizona's and Louisville's hearings haven't taken place yet. The NCAA has filed the charge sheet against Arizona. Arizona gets to respond, and then they have the hearing. There's a long list of schools that "everyone knows" is dirty. Well, that list is totally meaningless unless someone talks about it or provides documentary evidence to prove what "everyone knows". The NCAA can't do anything without facing massive lawsuits if they base punishments only on what "everyone knows".
I fully realize that you folks here are very sensitive about NCAA investigations and I may have better results by screaming this into the wind.
