Can CA schools even remain in the NCAA if this sticks?

Interesting situation there. In a way, I like it when someone tells the arrogant NCAA what they can’t do, but I don’t like people having no consequences for violating rules. The NCAA has shown to be too soft in many situations anyway.

That's like saying if a Judge is known to have taken bribes over the course of his career, it's still OK for him to remain on the bench.

 

The NCAA should say, "Fine, you want to hire a coach known for blatant cheating and disregarding NCAA rules? Well, in that case, we will permit any school on its schedule to refuse to play them without any penalty, even if it means no school will play them, at all. Additionally, if the coach is found to cheat, again, we will give the school an automatic Death Penalty for knowingly hiring a repeat offender, cheater."

I too like thumbing your nose at the NCAA, but I think your analysis here is spot on. There has to be consequences or the inmates will quickly run the asylum.
