    "Po Dunk" WCC teams Gonzaga, Saint Mary's and San Francisco have owned U during the coach small k era.

    Fraud and corruption?

    Lack of institutional control needs to lead to the death penalty for these schools.

    These schools should receive severe punishments/sanctions...

    For example...

    No NCAA Tournament...3 to 5 years.

    No Tournament period...3 to 5 years.

    Loss of scholarships.

    A complete house cleaning of coaching staffs.

    Anything less will simply be interpreted as a wink and a nod to offending schools as well as the rest of the NCAA.

    Wonder how much BYU paid for LP3 and if they're now looking for a refund.

    @But seriously folks:

    "PAC 12 strutting their stuff.
    Proud to NOT be part of the so-called elite."

    You forgot about the other conferences. Are you proud not to be part of any of them too?

    LOL.

    You and your fan base would give anything to be in one of the "so-called elite" conferences. It wasn't that long ago you were all giddy with anticipation at belonging - before the Big XII snub.

    Have fun imploding once again and finishing third in the po-dunk WCC.

    Go Utes!

    Onward

    Two of the ten were on the coaching staffs of PAC-12 schools. Coach K., despite losing 2-3 top recruits last year (at least one to one of the two Universities whose assistant coach is being charged) again proved his high moral standards by not violating NCAA regulations.

    As our head coach time has proven he demands the same conduct from his assistants and players. Remember it all starts at the top. Utah can be proud of our sports programs!

    What a surprise....corruption in NCAA men's basketball. Probably the tip of the iceberg unfortunately. I'm glad to hear that there are still people out there that will attempt to do something about it.

    TAS - While I agree with your post, I think the bus is way too far away from the station now to really do too much about it all. The swiss cheese approach is about all that can be done...poke some holes in it but never get the entire thing.

    Its great that we never have to worry about Coach K doing anything wrong like that at Utah. The recruits he has brought in the past couple of months have been very impressive. Go Utes!

    I'll help you understand that ute fans are always proud of the p5 football or otherwise it is the crowning achievement.

    It hasn't been that long ago that USC had to vacate a college football championship because of fraudulent activity involving a certain running back at that time ....

    "Proud to be in a P5 PAC 12 league."

    (faux)ute alumni:

    Proud that you're really not.

    "Proud to be in a P5 PAC 12 league."

    How, exactly, is that related to a criminal fraud investigation involving two PAC 12 coaches?

    btw, P5 is completely irrelevant when it comes to NCAA basketball.

    There is too much money involved in college athletics. Companies involved in sportswear have a huge vested interest involved in the college programs that use there brand name. Head coaches with 6 and 7 seven figure salaries are tempted to cut corners in order to assure the success of their teams. Huge television contracts tempt college administrators to look the other way, when questionable practices occur at their colleges. The whole mess needs to be cleaned up.
