Here's a little behind-the-scenes look at how we like to operate at Hustle Belt:
I really must thank Geeves for actually looking at the darn PDF that Eastern Michigan volunteered that chronicled their own NCAA violations and what the compliance officials discovered additionally in their investigation. All I did was look at the resignation notice and say "isn't that weird." And meanwhile ... the man did WORK. More power to him.
And it's on that sentiment that, after running hist post, I gave the follow-up story assignment to someone else. Although I may have made a mistake on this, we'll see how it plays out.
I know it isn't on the same wavelength as Bobby Petrino being ousted from Arkansas or Baylor basketball potentially making improper phone calls ... but violations are violations. And EMU is a championship basketball team whose program state is now in flux. And this is a terrible cloud to have over Ypsilanti, especially given most of their teams experienced unfamiliar success across all varsity sports.
