: 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."
That is true, however it was Murphy who committed the violations, not the ad. Murphy was fired, and knew he was going to be fired because there was a meeting after the ncaa put asu on probation, and during that meeting all coaches were told that if they did anything to get asu in front of the ncaa infractions committee in the probation period that they would be fired. Murphy talks out of both ends.
