Obviously you follow the UM school of reading since you didn't finish reading my post.... I don't expect any one coach to watch these guys 24/7.... but it is far easier for a hoops coach to know his players in and out and to have someone assigned to all of his players that it is for a football coach. Stuff can still happen, as it did with these guys. All I'm saying is that the coach of a hoops blame, IMO, is more accountable for these kinds of situations than a football coach is... I'm not sure why you can't understand my point and why you would somehow construe my post to mean that I think that I expect one coach to babysit 12 players 24/7.

BluDevil it is obvious you have never coached.

They should change the name of the conference from SEC to DOC since that's where many of the athletes end up.

Come on.... how can the coaches in this program not be keeping up with their players... on a football team there are like 50+ guys so I can see how a coach might not know what all their football players are doing. But on a hoops team where there are like 15 players and 15 coaches, how can they not be on top of what is going on?
