    Seriously, 5 games? Anyone else see anything wrong with this? This is supposed to discourage cheating? Sounds like he was elbow deep in this - actually calling the shots at times.

    Okay as a Tenn fan I am now crying foul! Pearl received an 8 game suspension in the SEC by Slive who now needs to step up to the plate and at the very least add 3 games to Haith's suspension. What the NCAA has found Haith guilty of is much worse than lying about a cookout for two players (Craft and Selby) that never even played for Tennessee! Also, Pearl received a show cause penalty. Are you kidding me?

    I agree with you. Pearl's actual violation was laughable. Then he attempted a cover-up and lied to the NCAA. Haith's actions are as close to as bad as you can get. THEN he attempted to cover them up AND lied to the NCAA.

    What pearl got was because of the coverup, but that doesn't mean the actual violation doesn't mean much. Haith's punishment should dwarf Pearls. No question about it.

    Also, Pearl could not recruit off campus for a year! The difference between Pearl's and Haith's penalties demands an explanation. Pearl's is obviously much worse. There is no way to justify that.

    It is a disgrace.
    The fact that he was suspended, implies guilt. And considering the accusations, he should have then been levied a much heavier punishment.

    I think the SEC should force Missouri to vacate....

    ...their most recent win in football. :ninja:

    I agree and I think it would set a great precedent if the SEC greatly upped the suspension. The NCAA may be toothless, but at least our conference can show it has cajones.

    I suspect that Haith is on his way out at Missouri which could be bad. Haith is not that good. I do agree that Pearl was really slammed for:

    1. A cover up

    2. Being or at least appearing hypocritical.

    Haith has essentially been found guilty of laundering Shapiro hush money and having knowledge of a $10k payment to a player. Isn't that also a cover up and isnt't paying $10k to a current player's family worse than a few cheeseburgers to recruits that went somewhere else? As far as being hypocritical goes the Deon Thomas episode was over 20 years ago and this whole thing wreaks of selective enforcement.

    Lying to the NCAA is a HUGE offense. Much worse than whatever it is you are lying about.

    While I think that Haith got off lightly I also think that Pearl did as well. He freaking lied to the NCAA. There is nothing worse than that.

    So it is better to pay $10k to the family of a player and funnel hush money to the booster that made the payment (who was later implicated in a Ponzi scheme) then it is to lie about feeding two recruits some cheeseburgers...as long as you are an honest cheat? That is like saying that it is better to commit armed robbery and confess to it then to run a red light and lie about it to the cop.

    Look, I am a fan of Pearl. I hate it that he is not in the SEC any more.

    That episode 20 years ago might well have been why he did not fess up to a secondary violation.

    Cheating is bad. Lying when you have been caught is worse

    I love Pearl but what he did was wrong. It isn't cheeseburgers. The douche bag lied to the NCAA. Do you really want him representing your school?

    Haith getting a token 5 game suspension is still more than the Miami basketball program got. As for being rewarded for fessing up, I dont recall Haith ever admitting any guilt.

    Haith's penalty should be to spend 48 hours alone in an SUV with Aaron Hernandez.

    I'm sure the league office is getting some pressure on this one, its an absolute crime to only get 5 games.

    I wouldn't be surprised in the least if he has to sit out some SEC games this year.
