Kelvin Sampson in Trouble (again)

Once a violator...

If Sampson is fired, the coaching domino effect will be interesting to watch. Mark Few turned down Indiana last time, but would they come knocking on Randy Bennett's door? Who else will be knocking on his door?

You can't help but shake your head that on the same day of an absolute fiasco in Washington with Clemens and mcNamaee, it comes out that Kelvin appears to have lied to cover up a mess.

I swear, our country has lost any semblance of ethics - how frustrating.

It's days like this that I juust want to reiterate that I want a clean program at UP - one that is competitive and operates in a transparent and above board manner..

Sampson is, sorry to say, an idiot. He knows he's been put on notice, he knows what he's not allowed to do, then, like a child, does it anyway. Stupid, stupid, stupid!

The worst part is that he is supposed to be a teacher and leader to his players. And we wonder why athletes get in trouble.

Every time I see somthing like this I'm glad we have people like Reveno and Williams.

By the way, UP's only major infraction, according to the NCAA database, was conducting improper tryouts...in 1954. Read the gory details here:

(Hit the Major Infractions link on the left side, type PORTLAND into the Institution field, hit Go Search at the bottom of the page, then click the link that comes up.)

Nice site.

Good thing there was no TV penalty in the UP case.

Of course I had to type in GONZAGA....
