This is a surprise. Leavitt is the guy who built the program from nothing and brought it into the national spotlight. It looks like colleges are really cracking down on mistreatment of players.

There has to be more to this "investigation" than they are telling us now. I really liked that guy.

Maybe they will look at Pasqualoni. He coached for 14 years at Syracuse in the Big East, where he was fired by the new athletic director in 2004. He is now working in florida. He is probably itching to get a HC job and he is a long shot to get one in the NFL.

I remember 20 years ago playing high school ball and pissing the coach off.
He chewed my *** out and he slapped me upside the back of my helmet.
It pissed me off,but I just sucked it up and keeped going.
I don't know if it was right or wrong,it was just the way it was back then.

That's too bad. He built a nice program.

Well times are different now. We have people calling abuse on parents when most of the time is nothing more than a spanking.

Im only 26 but i remember getting my @#$ handed to me plenty of times by my mom or aunts, not once would i ever think to call abuse. I knew that most of the time i deserved it and i am a better person today for it.

the player he hit is saying he was never touched. Something a bit more than they are letting on.

The top candidates seem to be Calvin McGee, Tommy Tubberville, and Doug Williams.

That's probably a great idea.
