Coaches believe scandal will level the playing field
« on: September 27, 2017, 11:49:21 am »

I was already thinking this. Just heard Fran Fraschilla on ESPN say that he has spoken with several NCAA head basketball coaches and they are glad about what's happening because "the playing field will level just a little bit." Fraschila says that he estimates 70% of coaches in power conferences are trying to do things the right way, but those coaches deal with the frustration of losing recruits to and struggling to compete with the other 30%.

I agree. Glad this is happening. Glad our coach (I believe) falls under the 70% trying to do the right things.

The important part of that quote is, "a little bit". Enough to get us to the Sweet Sixteen and beyond? I doubt it but one can hope.

We darn near made the sweet 16 last year against the blue blooded national champion. The officials stepped in and made sure that didn't happen.

What we need to do is win enough games to avoid that type of seed.  I don't think that'll be an issue this year with what we have coming back.

We are likely to win fewer games this year, even if the team is better.   Largely because of programs doing the things that Auburn and Louisville are being busted for doing.

If these schools get nailed they're likely to be drags on our RPI and conference for years. 

SEC is the new SWC.

The most important Fraschilla said I heard on NPR this morning.  He said, for every dirty coach, a clean coach loses his job because of cheating, because they can't compete.  Good guys now stand a chance.

Didn't think about that. Maybe now at least some of those coaches doin it the right way will get a little latitude. I'm sure Jeff Long is smiling every morning, reading the news on all this.

As long as this is a billion dollar industry there will be some corruption. Nobody is clean.
