    Been listening to college hoops and sports radio all morning.

    Shocker they're already tying this back to the NCAA and paying players. Didn't see that coming.

    Today, Bruce Pearl was rewarded with a contract extension while still under FBI investigation.

    That quote will be relevant for MANY years to come. You see it in almost every sport whether it's amateur or professional - usually the punishment is worth the crime.

    Take Melky Cabrera in MLB, for example. His career was almost over when his tenure ended with the Yankees. The Royals signed him as a reclamation project, and he way over produced his pedigree (cough...steroids...cough). The Royals then trade him to San Francisco, where he plays even better and he wins the All Star game MVP award. Then, boom, busted for roids. That offseason the Blue Jays signed him to a $16M contract. Two years later he signs a $42M contract with the White Sox. Melky's career in baseball was all but over, but roids helped propel him to $58M he never would have made if he didn't cheat.

    So, the moral of the story is...the riches that come from success when cheating still FAR outweigh the punishment and downside. The same applies to college basketball. Until schools start getting punished at a far greater level and coaches start getting banished for cheating, the juice will continue to be worth the squeeze.

    Dakich used this quote a few months ago on the Dan Patrick Show--and gave Royce credit! Go to 3:57.

    Is that the same Miami that was never really punished in football despite a booster admitting he payed players, gave the gifts, girls, etc? Miami must have made a deal with the devil, or they have the greatest legal representation in judicial history.
