    Larry Brown is a tremendous basketball coach. He's also one of the nicest people I have ever met.

    But any college that hires him to run its basketball program expecting him to follow NCAA rules deserves everything it gets.

    Once a cheat, always a cheat.
    He's been a proven cheater in 3 different decades.
    It's kind of sad really.

    I'll kick-start this side of the discussion -- I don't care about the NCAA rules as they pertain to basketball and so it naturally follows that I don't care who breaks them.

    Every analyst will call him a great basketball mind and coach with no mention of this in a couple years. Then Stephen A. Smith will go on an A.I. rant.

    Yeah, I've long since given up on the idea that running afoul of NCAA regulations necessarily makes you a bad person.

    Yeah, the NCAA's always so focused on ticky-tack stuff. Arranging for a secretary to take an online class for a player so that player can be eligible? Who in his right mind would consider that to be a serious breach?

    dq, I'll give you that the academic fraud stuff is worse than the garden-variety recruiting violations. But if any of that fraud mattered to the NCAA -- hell, if academics mattered to the NCAA -- three-quarters of Division I programs would be ineligible for the tournament.
