Kelvin Sampson can’t leave well enough alone

Who remembers Kelvin Sampson? I don’t! I went through a very serious psychological process, like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, to have all memories of this “Sampson” guy erased from my brain. Actually, if that were true, I wouldn’t be writing this right now. I guess that construct works better for movies than for blog posts. Oh well.

In any case, The Star reported this morning that Sampson is appealing his NCAA penalty. Seriously. From Mark Alesia (thanks to Michael for the tip):

A source close to Sampson said the appeal is based on two points: The first is that the infractions committee misinterpreted testimony by former IU assistant Rob Senderoff, which led to a conclusion that Sampson knowingly placed impermissible recruiting phone calls, and thus was guilty of unethical conduct.

The second is that the NCAA enforcement staff, essentially the prosecutor in the case, was biased and showed a prejudgment of guilt by requesting a hearing before all of the interviews were complete.

I’m no legal expert. Nor am I well-versed in the judiciary procedures of the NCAA. So I don’t really have much in the way of comment to offer, except this: Go away, Kelvin. Go away. You got caught, dude. Your own school caught you. Maybe the NCAA will admit they “misinterpreted” Rob Senderoff’s testimony — and as someone who used to tell his ex-girlfriend she was “misinterpreting” me, let me tell you that’s nothing but a rude backhanded insult — but I doubt it. Your best option? Coach in the NBA, and go … away.

Now, about that memory procedure. There’s got to be something on the Internet somewhere here …

    What a scumbag. I wonder which division III school will hire him, when he comes back.

    This is the arrogance of Kelvin Sampson and the selfishness. Hasn't he ruined enough lives and programs. He flat out doesn't care, when he should just go away. On one hand I want to have the opportunity for him to be booed over and over…however I don't want him near college basketball or any basketball ever again

    And Pete Carroll still gets a free pass. They got caught, they even had a court case against Reggie Bush go to a FEDERAL COURT, and the NCAA chose to ignore this.

    Hate Sampson all you want, he did nothing different than Pete Carroll who is probably getting ready to join 3 recruits in a gang bang of 2 co-eds that will be shown on youtube later and the NCAA will magically not see it

    While Pete Carroll sits in his LA office laughing at us as he joins 3 recruits for a gang bang of 2 co-eds that will be shown on Youtube later and the NCAA will magically not see it.

    I think Inside the hall needs to get past the Sampson bashing. We were hosed by the NCAA, we should be competing for a title this year instead we have are going to lose to Penn State next month by 35.

    Be mad at Sampson all you want, the bottom line is the NCAA is a joke and they pick and choose who to bust and when. Sampson did nothing different than Pete Carroll is doing at USC, period
