    From what I've heard, most of it has to be with a former coach. (might get ugly)

          I've always liked Murphy and the fact we have played them home and home through the years.

            There also some mention on their fan boards that having practises at illegal times was a poorly kept secret. The tip of the iceberg might very well apply here.

              Is this the tip of the iceberg you were talking about:

              1. the program sends players to API...a world class training facility that is big time expensive. Who is paying for this? Its an NCAA violation to provide this type of outside training as a perk. One of the reasons this has come out is because they supposedly tell recruits that API is available to the players...not necessarily through Moreno. Recruits tell othe rprograms...you get the idea

              2. Looking into the use of the "baseball house" and the room and board charged to players may likely uncover some inproprieties.

              3. Providing employment to players to offset room and board (ie Murph's deal) is a violation if it is not done through the university's official work study programs.

              4. Jarvis is a nice kid..but an absolute grease fire in the classroom and a tad edgy in his personal life. Murph doesn't want anyone hanging out with him...particularly after dark. There is a possibility that some hanky panky has been going on with his academic performance...which I understand to be virtually all online courses.

              5. The NCAA mandates a maximum number of days that a program may practice in the fall. The ASU schedule is one of college baseball's worst kept secrets.

                    SB Shock, pretty much, although it wouldn't suprise me if there is more.
