c'mon this is just a pile of manure to damage not only miles,but the program.
So who was the last NCAA head football coach to receive "a Sean Payton-like punishment where he is suspended from coaching for a year or so"? Did this happen without direct irrefutable evidence that said head coach was actively and knowingly involved in willful major rules violation? Cause I'm wondering what precedent makes you think this is a possibility.
1st - Have to look at who is "breaking" the story. Thayer Evans is, well, I'd probably link him to being of the quality of the afterbirth of a bastard rat.
2nd- Radio buzzing all day, seems that the most of his "sources" are players that were dismissed from the okie st team for one reason or another, can you say "ax to grind"
I don't see anything coming of this.
Call us when he's screwing kids in the showers.
EDIT: For those who don't know, psulion the couyon is a Penn St alum.
Whatever came of the Miami scandal? I don't remember hearing about any harsh punishments being handed down to them.
If the NCAA couldn't/wouldn't do anything drastic to them, despite the fact that all of America knew it was going on, just how in the bloody hell are they supposed to impose anything onto Miles?
Of course their credibility is zero now... however you are wrong about their personnel "fleeing". They have enforcement powers until the college presidents that give them said power revoke it... and right now they are not doing any such thing. They may have botched those investigations, but Penn State, Ohio State, and USC show that the NCAA can still wield power...however inconsistent and ridiculous it may be.
That's all well and good, but that specific incident isn't involved with what happened at Oklahoma State.
Except it actually affects LSU since Les Miles who is part of the investigation is the current head coach at LSU.
Les Miles was the head coach at Oklahoma State from 2001-2004. The period of investigation is 2001-2011, so whatever happened at Oklahoma State started when Les started there.
Which is why this thread is serving as a warning to LSU fans so they do not get blindsided in case something happens. That was the entire point of the thread... Look out, pay attention to what comes out, and watch to see if Les Miles is implicated.
Why would I hope that Les Miles gets punished? Les Miles... the football coach of a school I cheer for because of my family ties to the school. A football coach who I vigorously defended on this very forum when so many other LSU fans wanted to get rid of him after the 2008 and 2009 seasons...and so many times after that. Not to mention one of my favorite coaches in college football. Also, as I said above^ this thread serves as a warning to LSU fans to ensure they are not blindsided by anything that comes.
There are plenty of times when the NCAA has suspended a head coach for a period of time. Feel free to google it.
There are plenty of sources, but here is a nice article summing up the situation: http://www.teamspeedkills.com/2013/9/9/4712998/sports-illustrated-oklahoma-st-report-les-miles
Mature. I come here trying to make sure you guys are alert about what's going on, and I get insulted.
What came of Penn State, Ohio State, and USC? The NCAA publicly dropped the ball on Miami, but they also proved that they don't necessarily need much...to do an full investigation of their own...especially when there is enough public pressure.
Psulions......obviously, no one cares, sucks because this hocus pocus seems important to you.....try taking it somewhere where they feel the same.
Um, yeah, they are:
Sure, the NCAA CAN go after whomever they want, but how much political will is there left? Every major investigation since USC and Tattoogate has blown up in their face. Every trophy Emmert wants to mount on his wall since that time has gotten away with him looking worse and worse. Without hard evidence of any kind, do you really see them going after yet another high-profile program and coach? Auburn and A&M proved that you can fight the almighty NCAA and win, even when there's a clear-cut admission of wrongdoing in Newton's case.
Funny, I was just going to ask what was his point? He sure seems spun up about it, I mean, warn us? For what, it isn't like any of us can do a damn thing about it but thanks anyway. I just don't see anything to worry about, a scum bag of a reporter (and I use that term very loosely) a bunch of punks that got booted off of a football team and a WHOLE lot of people that LOVE selling the drama.
