    Boise State football gets a three-year probation and loses nine scholarships for 63 documented violations; who knows how many went undetected. No postseason ban for football (the only meaningful punishment), but the NCAA really put the hammer down and slapped a postseason band on women's tennis.

    In fairness, I seem to recall the more serious violations were by the women's tennis team.

    And the average value of each improper benefit was less than $2.00 if I recall correctly. Basically, they allowed recruits to sleep on the couch in players apartments and took them to Taco Bell

    Non-rev sport coaches, especially ones that rely on a lot of overseas athletes, pull shit that would make John Blake think "Man, that's fucked up."

    I know some of the football violations were minor but you do not get three years probation, and lose nine scholarships, for only $2 in extra benefits per affected student-athlete.

    Or fire your long-time athletic director.

    I'm thinking the non-rev sports are tougher to keep a leash on - most coaches aren't "full-timers" and have to rely on additional work to feed their family, they don't get a lot of interest or attention from boosters, they don't have as many scholarships and I've got to think there are fewer resources for compliance. Think about the player who don't get the same resources as football or men's hoops but have to abide the same rules.

    Uhhh, no. They are just eager to get as many point scorers as they can and they play fast and loose with the rules. You're way off with the suppositions.

    Is the tennis court blue?

    If it's not it should be.

    Blue is the color of choice among the pros.
