Certainly there is a "lack of institutional control" in most NCAA programs. But few are the instances where programs have been forced to give back games won. We Kentucky fans should know that as well as anyone. I really don't remember - what blame did the NCAA lay at Sutton's feet for that mess?

And just so I have this straight - Roy is to blame for the probe at Kansas which was 4 years ago and amouted to zero infractions. However, Cal is not to blame for the Camby thing , which did lead to the FF banner being taken down? So two instances where the coach did nothing wrong, yet Roy is to blame and Cal is not. Got it.

With some Roy Williams references, I had to mention a funny story...I buy a book 6 weeks ago about a high school basketball player who is going through the recruiting process as a senior from a very nice retired gentlemen (the author) who was signing at a Books-A-Million...we start a conversation and he gives me some of his background and we talk...I start reading the book...kindof folksy and clearly drawing from his appreciation of family and his past...
But I begin to notice the author taking some thinly-veiled shots at the Kansas coach during the story...until 1 day it hits me...googled it up and yes, the same Allen Bohl, AD at Kansas who lost the power struggle with Roy and was fired is the author of this book...guess the shots weren't so thinly-veiled after all...he admitted as much to me in some email conversations...they are not on each other's Christmas card list...needless to say, the player ends up signing at another school...
Good thread by the way...as a loyal Gator hoops guy (now assuming the "duck and avoid flying objects" position), I will make this a regular pit-stop on my online reading...

Though many of us here are sure trying
Caliparty is not a dirty recruiter, and convincing us anything different is not going to happen. Jealously has ran wild across the NCAA and we haven't even played one game with Cali yet.
1% of UK fans make the other 99% look bad. There are always idiot fans for every sports team. No one here has been arrogant, just a little optimistic since our program has sucked the past few years. But, that doesn't stop people from trolling here. I mean, could you imagine Indians fans coming to the main board blasting us anytime we predicted a playoff birth for the Reds?
Anyways... check out this weirdo that our little brother recruited......
I agree that optimism and excitement are good. Very good. But there certainly has been enough arrogance to make me want to turn my head a bit.
