In case you missed it, cure little Boise State really hit the big-time. They got slapped with a three-year NCAA probation. (The NCAA must be really mad at Miami.) A couple of observations:

1) Guys, don't get caught because you were cheating for your tennis team. Really, now, have some pride.

2) This Blog's new Most Favorite Human is university president Bob Kustra. Why? Because of this, from the ESPN piece linked above.

"Boise State president Bob Kustra said Boise State's rapid growth over the last decade, from an upstart Division II program into a perennial Top 25 team, likely outstripped the school's capacity to keep tabs on compliance with NCAA rules.

In other words, "We were cheating so well that we didn't have time to notice we were breaking the rules."

Beautiful. Just freaking beautiful.
