    While giving the usual “we didn’t do nuthin’ wrong …. don’t penalize the kids …. blah blah yadda yadda” speech, SMU President Gerald Turner said:

    “other schools facing penalties (UNC) must be shaking in their boots” over severity of penalties that SMULarry Brown received…. for various malfeasances committed by Dean Smith Disciple – “Weepin’ Larry Brown.

    Meanwhile Larry simply dug out his usual post-caught cheating speech he used after UCLA and Kansas…. the ones where he denies everything while crying and blubbers about “trying to help kids”.

    Larry did add a fresh line this time…. “I don’t know why I lied” …. during his testimony to the NCAA.

    Why SMU didn’t fire coach Larry Brown after NCAA penalties

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaab/aac/2015/09/29/smu-president-gerald-turner-ncaa-sanctions-larry-brown/73055362/

     

    Southern Methodist University president Gerald Turner said Tuesday night he did not contemplate firing men’s basketball coach Larry Brown in connection with NCAA rules violations that resulted in a variety of sanctions, including a ban from the upcoming season’s NCAA tournament and a two-year show-cause order for Brown.

    In a telephone interview with USA TODAY Sports, Turner also said the school “is seriously considering appealing” the penalties against the basketball program as well as those levied against the men’s golf program, where the NCAA also found violations and barred the team from participating in the upcoming season’s team and individual championships. But he added that he is concerned an appeal will cause even more damage to the programs by creating a longer period of uncertainty about their status.

    Turner criticized the harshness of the penalties, and without mentioning the University of North Carolina by name, said other schools facing NCAA investigations and/or infractions rulings must be “shaking in their boots” after seeing the sanctions handed SMU.

      Didn’t “Suitcase Larry” replace Matt Doherty (not Daugherty) as coach at SMU? Fool me once, etc.

      As for Tobacco Road mayhem in Texas, LB will always be on the positive side of the karmic equation in San Antonio for hiring a certain Air Force grad of Serbian descent as an assistant coach. Maybe when all the dust settles Coach Pop will retire from the NBA and take over for Ol’ Roy? 😉

        No. Larry’s week or so at Davidson was in the mid 70s. Doherty was in Jr Hi. Matt was an Asst at Davidson in the late 80s to Bob McKissop (sp) who was his HS coach on Long Island. Popp may be LB’s greatest positive legacy.

      “Oh Honey. Where DID you get those shoes?”

      I know what’s NOT in the indoor facility, this afternoon…Shad. ‘Cause he’s in the barrel, again.

        That boy has “issues”. Oh My!
        .
        Can we officially declare Shadrach as “The Wolfpack PJ” ???

          Nope. Not yet. That moped belongs to Thorton. Now, if he was ridin’ that thing with a shotgun strapped to his back…maybe.

            I see where Coach DD has popped a cap on Shad’s NCSU FB career. KUDOS to CDD for decisive action.

              Yep. Without NCAA implications.
              So…No…he is still not State’s PJ.

              He is his own Shadrach.

              DD moved quickly to make the problem go away. Kudos for his decisiveness. Not at all sure LF would do so. Certainly we know Roy did NOT with PJ.

      BL, some people wear Kevlar, some wear Teflon, some wear nothing and take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’. You, sir. are a porcupine :+))

        Is Snoopy One parked inside? How did Philip or Russell or Roman EVER get along without it?

          Can either you or 58 Wolf Kennel please explain why cheapskate NCSU boosters were only providing a Moped for Shadrack’s use? Surely Fat’s could have provided him with a superior mode of transportation. Or are moped’s the new SUV’s? Dan Kane should investigate this latest transportation trend.

            Bre’r Kennel is Da Man re: all things Shadrach. I handle Meshach and Abednigo. It’s safer that way. Whether Fats operates a fleet of Mopeds (or SequeWays) is TBD.

            Doug,

            Simple….Democratic Meddling. Seriously, and you brought this up. The WPC was banned (self imposed or maybe from the BOG?) from “Paying them Ath-A-eLITES”. After the Witch Hunt in 1990, the WPC was not allowed to provide ANY revenue to the AD (or the coaches). The WPC focuses on Capital Improvements and Scholarships. The Rams Club (correct me if I misread the contracts) provides a significant amount of $$ to ORW and LF and their peers.
            So, according to the RULES, we are NOT allowed to provide Transportation or have operatives that provide Bling, Booty, etc.
            Don’t get BK started on this….he will shut down BL’s server with references.
            Suffice it to say that Shad is still pretty biblical compared to PJ. BB Guns are NOT Firearms (OK, in MN where there is more guns than TX….DOES consider a BB gun a Firearm. FIRE indicates that a propellant was ignited).

              Who could have ever guessed that either BK,’68, and/or CowDog would break their necks to defend Shadrach “Eagle Scout” Thornton using the little-known “Named after an Old Testament hero” defense. If Carolina ever recruits a Methuselah or a Nebuchadnezzar they have to remember that one.

      BL, so much is happening, and you are covering it all, that I’m not sure to which blog input I’m responding. On all SMU issues and comments, all I can say is “YIKES” !!!!!. What a sad classic is “I don’t know why I lied”. Now I’m almost afraid to ask my question at RSC today. Wish some Kevlar was available for sale :+))

        Like that Okeefeenokee swamp boy who fell into the vat of molasses …. “Oh Lord, just give me a mouth to fit the occasion”.
        .
        FoxNews just reported that “throngs are already lining up outside Highland UMC on Ridge Road all wearing “We (heart) Bob Kennel” t-shirts. Fire Marshals are concerned about “an unruly mob” for The Swoff (and YOUR question).
