Mad props to Baylor University for having the foresight to hire Ken Starr as its president. It could not have hurt to have a close, personal "friend" of the Clinton's as your leader when it comes all things legal.
Both the men's and women's Baylor basketball programs recently imposed a handful of sanctions after it was learned that both teams exceeded the NCAA limit of phone calls and text messages only by a few hundred.
Baylor crossed the NCAA line on its most recent series of infractions, but there are no call-girls, go-betweens supplying pre-paid MasterCards or basketball players driving BMWs around campus. This doesn't look good, but this isn't awful.
Baylor slapped itself with a series of penalties, and the NCAA agreed those penalties were good enough.
The notable penalties include:
* Public reprimand and censure (zzzzzz).
* 3 years probation 4/11/12 to 4/10/15.
* Baylor men's coach Scott Drew will miss the first two conference games of next season. Some really cyncial Baylor fans may applaud this penalty.
* Reduction of 1 men's hoops scholarship for the 2011-12 & 2012-13 academic years.
* Reduction of 2 women's basketball scholarships for the 2011-12 year (as long as Brittney Griner is here, so what?).
* Baylor women's coach Kim Mulkey is not allowed to participate in off-campus recruiting this summer.
