My favorite part of the latest “Georgia Tech lies and cheats” story is this tidbit:
The NCAA decision made public on Thursday noted there were impermissible phone calls made by men’s basketball coaches only three days after Georgia Tech appeared before the NCAA committee for major violations in its football and men’s basketball program in April 2011.
Brian Gregory was named the new basketball coach on March 28, 2011. He replaced Paul Hewitt, who was fired on March 12, 2011.
That’s what you call hitting the ground running.
Georgia Tech had its NCAA probation extended two years. In this day and age when NCAA rules enforcement seems particularly toothless, you’ve really got to work hard to get the book thrown at you. Chantastic job, Jackets.
Oh, be sure not to miss the hard-hitting AJ-C coverage on the matter.
