NCAA President re: Punishing Coaches

Mark Emmert, the NCAA President, was on the Scott Van Pelt show today and discussed his opinion on how coaches who break the rules (*cough, cough, I'm lookin' at you Tressel*) should be held to a higher standard.  Specifically, he said that college coaches also serve as teachers and mentors, and as such, should be held to a higher standard.  At the end, he also addresses the paying of students topic.  It's a nice listen.

I know.  I keep reminding myself that the NCAA does stupid shit like, well, like they always do.  I thought it was interesting though, and refreshing, to hear him actually say that college coaches should be held to a higher standard.  We'll see.
