Like an alcoholic, Kelvin Sampson always returns to his vice. The NCAA came out with 5 major violations today against Sampson and the IU coaching staff. Sampson left the Oklahoma program in disarray with his violations there before leaving for Bloomington, lost a scheduled bonus at Indiana previously, and this could be the final straw. I would be extremely disappointed in AD Rick Greenspan and the University if Sampson does not get his walking papers by the end of the week.
It's no secret that I am a Brey apologist. He's a great recruiter and coach, but there is much more needed to succeed at the highest level of college basketball. Mike Brey is a first class individual who truly loves the University of Notre Dame and its fanbase and has never had so much as a hint of a violation in his career. While many of complaints about his coaching are valid from time to time (short bench, losing close games, etc.), we all can be proud of how he handles himself. Thanks again, Coach. Let's get the win tonight.
