he's a college ball analyst, yall
Harbaugh telling them they’ll play for a national championship is more misleading than that.
We only took one of your players that had been passed on the depth chart. There’s no need to be so bitter.
SEC said no because he has personal issues
SEC is black balling him
It's not the SEC's place to tell schools who they can and can't hire, but it would be pretty damned ridiculous if Freeze was coaching against the team that was sanctioned for shit that happened under his watch.
It apparently is. Got a bylaw and everything.
That's not what the bylaw says. Regardless, they could have the bylaw and it still not be its place.
Allowing Hugh Freeze to coach at an SEC school after getting fired from another SEC for using hookers is a bad look for the conference. I think it’s absolutely the place of the commissioner to prevent that from happening.
Well, that's definitely not what the bylaw says.
He's gonna look good in the booth for us in 2019.
How is it not the SEC's place?
You think it would be improper for them to not allow a Briles or Pitino in the conference? Or at minimum to dissuade it?
Agree it's a slippery slope b/c I don't know that there is much of a difference at all in the reps of Freeze and say a Calipari at the time of his hiring (other than level of success), and nobody batted an eye at that, but interested in your thoughts. Well, other than the hookers thing but without the NCAA issues I don't think they'd even consider black-balling him for the hooker issue alone if it wasn't tied to the cheating
The SEC isn't an enforcement entity. It's the NCAA's job to say whether or not a coach can be employed. Then, it's up to the school whether it wants to take on whatever negatives go with the hire. The SEC shouldn't be arbitrating school's morality clauses or expounding on the NCAA's punishment.
Either way, I think the blameworthy party here is the NCAA for not punishing the most guilty party more than the institution/players, who are largely his victims. It's bullshit, but that's on the NCAA to correct, not the conference.
184.108.40.206 Hiring Practices. Member institutions shall exercise best efforts to hire individuals committed to rules compliance. In connection with this requirement, member institutions shall thoroughly evaluate an individual’s record of rules compliance prior to offering employment for any coaching position or noncoaching position with sport-specific responsibilities. While each member institution makes its own hiring decisions, member institutions shall, at a minimum, request specific information from each candidate concerning his/her rules compliance record and communicate with NCAA enforcement and the Conference office regarding the same prior to offering employment to any candidate.
In addition, where a member institution considers hiring an individual who has engaged in unethical conduct as defined under NCAA Bylaws or who has participated in activity that resulted, or may result, in a Level I, Level II or major infraction, the President or Chancellor of that member institution is expected to consult directly with the Commissioner prior to offering employment to the individual.
Each member institution must include in each contract with every athletic director, coach, senior woman administrator, and other employee of its athletic department a specific provision obligating the employee to comply with the Rules and specifying that the employee agrees to be bound by and will comply with the enforcement, penalty, and other disciplinary provisions and procedures of the NCAA and of the Conference, including but not limited to the provisions of Article 4 of the Constitution and of this Bylaw 19.8.
I'm not real sure how you interpret this bylaw to say anything other than the commissioner of the SEC can put the kibosh on a school hiring a disgraced coach.
Right. That has nothing to do with why Freeze got fired from Ole Miss, which is what the post I responded to was talking about. That bylaw deals with NCAA-forbidden conduct, not "disgrace" from hiring hookers.
