  1. Sad and bad reflection on college sports and our society. Metress in only sorry and contrite because he was caught. It is ironic that the athlete and assistance coach were cheating on a criminal justice course. Had he graduated, the athlete would excelled at the GA State Patrol Academy.

  2. These infractions were not mistakes in the normal sense of the word. The recruiting and attempted academic support of this athlete are obvious failures of a moral compass. Winning games is fine, but a coaches real job is far more than that.

  3. Did resigning in shame ever cross his mind? In the past, Japanese and Korean corporate executives who disgraced or harmed their corporation used to resign. Now they are like their western counterparts who stay until stockholders or the legal system forces them out. Deny, delay, and dis-inform – anything to stay in power and office.
