No really...
No really...

Cheaters Never Prosper... Oh wait how much does Reggie Bush Make? ok nevermind

It's fair to say that cheaters who stick around too long never prosper. Then again how much money do these coaches make *while* cheating that is never taken away.

North Carolina Tar Heels football program gets NCAA postseason ban - Andy Staples -
On page two of the NCAA Committee on Infractions public report in the case of the North Carolina football program, committee members offer some helpful advice to other programs. "This case," committee members wrote, "should serve as a cautionary tale to all institutions to vigilantly monitor the activities of those student-athletes who possess the potential to be top professional prospects."

And speaking of sancations... Queue the "Melo-drama" (Credit to Mustang from UBFan)

Rumor is that it's an academic issue.

2012 NCAA tournament -- Syracuse Orange announce Fab Melo ineligible for tourney - ESPN
The university announced Tuesday that the 7-foot Brazilian, who did not travel with the team to Pittsburgh for the second- and third-round games, won't take part in the tournament because of an eligibility issue. The school did not elaborate.

Expansion... It just keeps going and going

There was a time, not so long ago, that football was stable-ish.... That time is gone.


College Conference Realignment: Sun Belt Considering Charlotte, Texas-San Antonio -
Speaking of growing, Brett McMurphy reports that Texas-San Antonio and Charlotte could join the Sun Belt. Charlotte has also reportedly put in for WAC membership, while UT-SA is set to begin its first FBS season as a member of the WAC. So there's your sign of the times as to which bottom-rung conference at least has both its hands on the ladder. That's a metaphor.

Expansion Part Duex... Hoops fallout!

So much for my hopes that A10 schools might sart looking for another home.

Butler Could Replace Temple In Atlantic 10, According To Report -
Lost in all of this college realignment is that there are universities who value their basketball programs. Almost all of the conference shuffling that has occurred in recent times has been about football and nothing but football, but there's one school that doesn't even have a Division I football program interested in making moves. That school is Butler.

MAC spring preview: One in and one out means the league will have 13 teams again - College Football -
The offense has its moments last season, but the defense generally was quite bad, especially against the pass. Buffalo is looking for a new starting quarterback, a new go-to receiver and a new left tackle. TB Branden Oliver is a good one, and he should become even more important to the offense. Defensively, the Bulls are losing key players at each level: a lineman, a linebacker and a strong safety. But the bulk of the starters are back, and if coaches can find some more pass rushers, this could be an OK unit.
