    Baylor gets Probation

    Just heard on Fox News Baylor put on probation for three years. Sorry couldn't find a link.

    Re: Baylor gets Probation

    Thank you! I guess my question is how much will this hurt the program. I'm guessing minimal, but I'm no expert.

    About as much as a slap on the wrist hurts.

    Re: Baylor gets Probation

    I guess I'm just having a hard time seeing a down side to cheating anymore. Spend a couple of years on probation, maybe lose a coach or 2 along the way, but the years you are successful will pay you back 10 fold over any minor penalties they put on you. I know everyone keeps saying, "It was just a few phone calls and texts, no big deal." But I personally find these worse than big donors throwing money at a player. Most of the time, the coach has no say in what some major programs donors do with their own money and time. Nor can they really control how players choose to sell their jerseys for tattoos. Phone calls from a coaching staff though, are quite clearly laid out in the rule book. It's deliberate cheating by members of the coaching staff and no one seems to give a ****.

    Is this just a case of, "We don't want to push the issue because we don't want to get caught doing the same thing." Or is the NCAA beyond cracking down on anyone anymore?

    It may actually help them, because they can now concentrate their money on a smaller amount of recruits.

    Don't see how. They can't carry those timeouts into the other games.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    So, you commit violations while on probation and they just extend the probation? What's the point of probation then?
