The NCAA has suspended Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun for three games next season and banned him from making recruiting calls for a six-month period after its committee on infractions ruled that he failed to "promote an atmosphere of compliance" within his basketball program.

The details of the decision were announced during a Tuesday teleconference.

Trying to say that what Pearl did and what Calhoun did are the same is just not correct.

Here you go...




Please note this from the article;

"But the mistake those people are making is that they're focusing on the wrong UConn coach. You want to know what's in store for Pearl when the case reaches the punishment phase? Don't look at Calhoun. Look at former UConn operations director Beau Archibald, who was charged with unethical conduct (just like Pearl) for providing "false and misleading" information to the NCAA enforcement staff (just like Pearl).

A whole three games? Way to drop the hammer! Why not just burn his filet or give him a shoddy back massage? What a joke.

If I were UCONN president I would give Calhoun three choices.

1.  Resign effective immediately

2.  Donate $1,000,000 to the general scholarship fund for every year you continue to coach so that REAL students (not most of your basketball players) who are going into huge debt for a college degree can get some relief.

3.  Get Fired.

Again...I'll ask why? For one incident in which he and his staff cooperated completely with the investigation?

You can hate UConn and Calhoun all you want, but saying you would take this type of action against Calhoun is just stupid.

It is not like he hosted a party for recuites at his house.
Told the recuits and their families that they were all violating NCAA rules for being there
Told them to lie to the NCAA investigators
Lied himself to NCAA investigators

oh yea...then tell the truth when you're caught and the lies won't help you anymore.

Trying to say that what Pearl did and what Calhoun did are the same is just not correct.

Tennessee was completely irrelevant as a basketball school until Pearl was hired. I would argue that he made Tennessee a national player in a short period of time and brought millions of dollars to the University as well. Pearl admitted that he lied to the NCAA and came back with the facts shortly after being questioned. I am not claiming that Pearl is innocent, but he was docked a large portion of his salary, suspended from coaching for half of Tennessee's conference games, and had recruiting restrictions levied against him.
For what it's worth I agree 100%. It seems as if certain coaches can get by with just about anything but let an SEC coach break a rule or even think about breaking a rule and all of a sudden we have reporters from the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune to every web site that spreads crap about anything and everybody(TMZ comes to mind) including sportswriters across the nation looking for the next big scandal to hang on a select few(the devils).

The Angels are Mike Krzyzewski, Bill Self, Roy Williams, Jim Calhoun, and that cheating bastUrd John Wooden(set to slow soft music as if to lend credibility). And anyone else that had gotten caught with the exception of those already mentioned above in fifteen seconds of shame like Rick Pitino did and they'd ran his ass out of the sport on a rail like they did Kelvin Sampson at IU. Did Sampson cheat? Hell yeah he did. He made hundreds of illegal phone calls....and I'm definitely not an IU fan but the NCAA went overboard with that one banning him from coaching the way they did.

Now as far as the UCONN fan(obviously) calling the UT fan a "cornball" is that all you got? Really? I had to look that one up but in no way was his/her post corny or cornballish. What are you twelve.

My problem is with the media and their refusal to let the situation at Tennessee go away. Meanwhile, they go on and on about Calhoun and only mention his "indiscretions" as a side note. And FYI, Hamilton(AD) has only kept his job bc he hired Pearl. Every other decision he has made(see Lane Kiffin debacle) has been a fiasco. And to the other moron who makes numerous grammatical errors in one sentence and types in all caps - I have no idea what a cornball is and thus can not respond to you.

Howdoitknow, I agree. Calhoun has skated for years and I have zero idea why. He's long believed he's untouchable because the media is either too afraid of him or too lazy to do some digging. The guy's arrogance has run amok and the school's administration is too meek to reel him in. Calhoun should have been canned years ago.

Classic Tennesse fan gubberish.


Calhoun should have been canned years ago.
For what?...Putting UConn on the national sporst map?
Bringing in miliions of dollars to the University in NCAA money?
They were nothing until he got there.

The difference between Calhoun and Pearl is that Pearl openly admits to "misleading" (in other words lying) to the NCAA during their investigation. While Calhoun and his entire staff cooperated completely with the NCAA's investigation at UConn.

FYI...your own AD thinks Pearl is a scum bag;
