    NCAA may "vacate" Memphis wins

    Sources: NCAA may 'vacate' Memphis Tigers victories - ESPN

    Is this really even a penalty? At this point does it really matter if the "wins" are removed...

    I think that is pretty weak.

    Re: NCAA may "vacate" Memphis wins

    Just like the 'win' colorado gave to us in football in the late 90s. It still counts as a loss in our record books.

    Calipari gets away with another one! He is going to have both of his FF's taken away but when you look at his record he will have zero penalties to show for it!

    This is tough punishment for USC standards.. but for the rest of us, its called kindness from the NCAA.

    Calipari...

    The guy is busted cheating at UMass...the guy is busted cheating at Memphis...

    If Kentucky is busted for the SLIGHTEST infraction, they should get the death penalty...why should schools get the treated like first time offenders when they hire a cheater....(Sampson, Calipari, Harrick...etc...)

    They know what they are getting, and most of the time it results in wins for the school despite very questionable ethics.

    Re: Calipari...

    I'm sure the SEC and the NCAA have not lost a bit of sleep over having Coach Cal at Kentucky.

    Kentucky doesn't have much room to mess up. They aren't too far removed from one death penalty...

    USC???

    Are you mixing up the scandal that happened at USC with the one that happened at Memphis?


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    That's what vacating is. You don't give the win to the other team. You just give up the win for yourself.

    But if they vacate the win, I think we should get to vacate the loss.

    So Iowa State may end up winning more games than Taggart anyway. Haha. I knew it.

    Re: Calipari...

    The guy is damaged goods. Kentucky's decision to hire him is really reminding me of what Indiana did when they hired Sampson.

    You can bet the NCAA will be watching closely.

    Exactly. It's happened to one of the biggest names out there once. It can happen again.

    This hire just seems to cry out for negative attention and scrutiny. Everyone can guess where it ends up. Sure they'll get some wins (until they're taken away), but they won't last. This seems (still) like a stupid move.

    Except by Cal. Way to get out of town and leave your last stop in a mess.


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