    Mike Haywood takes the cake. There was a lot of smoke and little fire surrounding Mike Price.

    George O'Leary didn't screw up after he got hired...his past caught up with him.

    Nice to see a university hold someone accountable in such a way...these charges set a terrible example for a person in this position, but many schools/ADs would be willing to look the other way...especially if Ws were piling up.

    Billy Donovan changing his mind less than a week later was kind of a big deal.

    In the WWE, the Rockers (Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty) got fired after just one match in '87 or so because they had an incident in the bar the night before with another wrestler, and the rest of the wrestlers didn't like them at first sight.

    They later got rehired again after nearly a year, then went on to a decent (Jannetty) and incredible (Michaels) careers.
