From this morning's Houston Chronicle:
Former Indiana coach Kelvin Sampson spent eight hours in a closed-door hearing before an NCAA panel in Seattle that will determine whether he violated NCAA recruiting rules.
As you may recall, Sampson was fired by Indiana, on the spot, because he made around 100 recruiting phone calls that allegedly violate NCAA rules, and was not forthright about having done so.
Let's see -- phone calls v. Mayo. Phone calls v. Bushgate. Yeah, it makes sense, an 8 hour closed-door-hearing for Sampson and Indiana and, as they say about sc during the BB half-time hoop contest, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
My sense is that both Sampson and Indiana cooperated with the NCAA. It's clear that Garrett, Timmeh, Peetey and sc will not.
This is not earth shaking. It just reinforced my feeling that the NCAA is not a legitimate force for good in the college sports world.
I know this is not worthy of a "fanpost". I wanted to put it up as a "fanshot" but could not figure out how to place the quote and still have a bit of room for commentary. If someone could help me out with this you'll be spared this type of post.
