Well you can't say the reporters didn't do their homework.

The question is what route does the NCAA take. Do they decide to go the "if we say we're still investigating long enough will people just forget" route like with Reggie Bush or the "the evidence is overwhleming and we can't sweep it under the rug" route like Florida State.

I wonder how much money ConU brought in for the NC$$ in the past couple years...

Love that one of our own (Wetzel) is breaking this story. It's also interesting to see how involved Tom Moore was in committing these violations, since his name was pretty prominent around here during the last two coaching searches

Wow, that is a really thorough report. NCAA will have to respond.

Calhoun cannot skate away from this deal. Neither can Moore.

Been waiting for, and expecting, this day for quite some time. Looks like the time has come for mumbles to fade into the Connecticut twilight.....
Thanks Jack.....

Obviously Moore's involvement is huge. Anyone have any idea how he would/could/will be penalized since he is now running another program?

IIRC, Sampson's first sanctions at IU came from his problems at Oklahoma, so it can happen.

It least Quinnipiac will win the greatest consolation prize: The ability to get its ass kicked by UConn every year.
