Wow, what great sources you link hilly. I put Slate right up there with HuffPost, Newsweek, and Cosmo, those sources that Yahoo loves so much.

7. UNC, Vill, Duke, KU, UK, Syr, UCONN, et. al. all are caught in the shoe scandal but WVU is squeaky clean; penalties for the dirty start next season. Some schools receive a 5 year ban while others get the death penalty (read that as UNC). WVU wins the national title 4 of 5 years, recruiting goes through the roof as Huggs continues to run a clean program. Huggs roll on titles rivals the record of Wooden and he remains HC until he is 80. Oh yeah, and Sags is back to enjoy it before going in the draft as a lottery pick.

Excerpts from the AP story:

The Commission on College Basketball sharply directed the NCAA to take control of the sport, calling for sweeping reforms to separate pro and college tracks, permit players to return to school after going undrafted by the NBA and ban cheating coaches for life.

It's not yet clear how the governing body would pay for some of the proposals, and some of the panel's key recommendations would require cooperation from the NBA, its players union and USA Basketball.

NCAA President Mark Emmert said he wants reforms in place by August. The commission does, too. And it wants to review the NCAA's plans for implementation before it goes before the boards for approval.

ENFORCEMENT

The commission recommended harsher penalties for rule-breakers and that the NCAA outsource the investigation and adjudication of the most serious infractions cases. Level I violations would be punishable with up to a five-year postseason ban and the forfeiture of all postseason revenue for the time of the ban. That could be worth tens of millions to major conference schools. By comparison, recent Level I infractions cases involving Louisville and Syracuse basketball resulted in postseason bans of one year.

In those cases, then-Louisville coach Rick Pitino, who was later fired after being tied to the FBI investigation, received a five-game NCAA suspension for violations related to an assistant coach hiring strippers for recruits, and Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim was suspended for nine games for academic misconduct and extra benefits violations. The commission said suspensions should be longer, up to one full season.

Instead of show cause orders, which are meant to limit a coach's ability to work in college sports after breaking NCAA rules, the report called for lifetime bans. The commission also said coaches and administrators should be contractually obligated comply with NCAA investigations.

"The rewards of success, athletic success, have become very great. The deterrents sometimes aren't as effective as they need to be. What we want are deterrents that really impact an institution," said Notre Dame President Fr. John Jenkins, who was a member of the Rice commission.

The full AP story is at Yahoo.com (as well as other sources I'm certain).

We cut the cord over a year ago. Like Eers, we stream using DSL. I use FireTV HD boxes and primarily stream DirecTV Now and amazon prime. The cost is significantly less than the satellite providers.

No, one party made the deal. Cite accurate history, then again having read your post for quite a while now you seem to have problems in that area.

And before you call me an "R" please note that I am an "I."

JARED KUSHNER STILL DOESN’T HAVE SECURITY CLEARANCE AFTER A YEAR AT THE WHITE HOUSE

Key takeaway:

"If Jared Kushner was working for any other department in the U.S. government and these issues arose…about falsifying a clearance or omitting information…his access would be first suspended. And then if there’s no other position he could hold, he’d be out of work without pay. He’d be off the job," Joseph Kaplan, founding principal attorney at Passman & Kaplan, P.C., told Newsweek last month. "If he was anybody else, his security clearance would have already been denied."


So please tell us all, how long does it take to get a security clearance? Hmmm?

Interesting on Keith Jackson's death. I was in a very good local restaurant owned and run by some younger brothers. The primary brother said to me yesterday, are you familiar with that guy, and I had the opportunity to enlighten him a bit. I certainly didn't agree with all of Jackson's biases (and we all have them), but he was far better than most of the broadcasters/analysts today. The owner was appreciative of learning a bit about Mr. Jackson.

Oh, and by brothers I do mean biological, even though it is a Jamaican restaurant (and exceedingly good too).

Great post SG44 and too bad eers had too much beer and clouded his thinking.

Joe - great point too. When the Left can't argue they become very quiet.

Holgersen has no excuse. He is the problem. He has the team and coaches that he recruited. He has embarrassed the state of WV. Lyons needs to either make changes to the coaching staff, I.e, fire Spavital, or the administrator needs to fire him. If I were in charge this would be done by 1-1-18. If they lack the resolve to make this happen, I volunteer.


It's not Spavital's fault that Chugs played poorly today. Spavital can only do so much with what he has to work with and apparently he has very little to work with beyond Will Grier.

Holgorsen needs to figure out how to lure quality QB recruits to WVU or he might as well go see if he can find one of RichRod's old playbooks still around somewhere in the facilities and try to recreate the read-option success we had years ago.
*Not saying we should do that - just making the point that if Holgorsen cannot recruit a Big 12 caliber QB to this school then we are in serious trouble.


I have to disagree with this a bit. I went to the TT game this year and Spav's offensive was quite offensive for three and a half quarters. Grier got hot and we got some breaks. In my opinion the offensive regressed this year and Grier, Sills and some others carried it. Three weeks to prep - and this???

Oh joy of joys Proud. :)

Some very good reasons and good logic here as to why we don't need to go down the Bobby Bowden path again. Recognize who we are and let the coaches build the program, like Don did.

When one really doesn't care any longer, because EVERYTHING is now disfunctional, it becomes much easier to read the soapbox.

Keep giving them hell eery.

See ya.
