: but I think it was one that we had to take. One yr w/o post-season is better then a season without baseball which the NCAA could have given us. I honestly don't believe the illegalities merit more than a forfeit of the wins in 07' but the lack of "institutional control" for the second time while on probation was one that the NCAA could not have ignored. I'm sure other programs have similar recruiting violations, which on the surface appear petty, but what hurt the most was the continuing problem of "lack of institutional control."
I blame the alumni. When we are flipping athletic directors like cheap houses because we can't afford to hold onto a decent athletic director, this is the kind of instability that you end up with. There are 200,000 of them out there in the county and they sit on their wallets when Notre Dame or Ohio State come pilfering our AD's once they've started to build momentum.
