And a big reason for this is because the NCAA is a joke. You self-sanction after he gets caught cheating, you get a 3-year bowl ban, lose a couple of scholarships, but thanks to ESPN and the revenue-sharing from the new playoff format, you still keep raking in the money. The NCAA has no bite. There is no real incentive for being clean, or deterrent for being dirty.
Yeah this is the reality. And based on conferences having no correlation anymore to geography, plus tv money, its prob never coming back. The only thing I could see is the self regulation thing (leaving the ncaa), but why would any team in the SEC want the rules to get cleaned up??
Why wouldn't a mid-level school hire Butch Davis? Think about it, how much does UNC stand to lose because of the shenanigans going on there? How much of a dip did USC take in its coffers due to the sanctions placed under Lane Kiffin?
Academics, integrity...things that used to matter. Dude is a blatant cheater, but an even better track coverer. Really he let all those unc folks fall on the sword, that he propped up first. Plus, bottom line, he recuits awesome, coaches awful. AWFUL. Think how much talent they had drafted recently, and what, for 7 win seasons.
