Thoughts From a Message Board: Arkansas Fans on Frank Haith

For as much as the Arkansas faithful refuse to concede that Mizzou has emerged as a natural rival in basketball, they are far less stubborn when it comes to firing off shots on their favorite message board, Hogville.net.  For every 1 unfortunate soul that is crushed when they find out they have not stumbled onto an obese fetish dating site, there were 10 that saw an opportunity last night to air their grievances specifically aimed at Mizzou coach Frank Haith. 

 It started with the matter-of-Hog-fact statement on the future of each team…

Then it got personal when Haith stormed onto the court yelling in his predecessor’s direction during a timeout…

Soon the 90′s sitcom-based insults were flowing…

Before long they morphed into familiar territory when sexual preference was introduced…

And without fail, the lifeblood of any anonymous message board – the angry meathead – strolled into the party…

In the end, it was a clinical performance by the Razorback faithful.  Being dismantled on the court by the team representing a border state is never a fun thing to experience, but so long as you can channel your frustration into a written assault crafted under an untraceable pseudonym then, as a fan, you’ve held up your end of the bargain.

 

JSF Exclusive: A Look at the NCAA Notice of Allegations to Frank Haith

On the heels of Mizzou’s upset victory over #5 Florida last night, the mood-killing NCAA dropped the bomb on coach Frank Haith that they had formally delivered his Notice of Allegations related to accusations lobbed by the infamous booster Nevin Shapiro during Haith’s tenure at Miami. 

Initial reports last month by Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports had Haith getting slapped with the dreaded “unethical conduct” charge the NCAA equivalent of a pink slip. 

Since that report, the NCAA has gone out of its way to concede that it’s investigation was conducted by bumbling fools and KU grads who no longer have their jobs, with the situation becoming so comical that many believed it was unlikely that the any Notice of Allegations would be delivered to Miami or Haith for fear of legal ramifications the NCAA might spark. 

Alas, last night they followed through with their promise.  But as Haith’s comments and several reports have confirmed, the NCAA’s allegations against him were significantly downgraded to a step above “we are eating crow”.  In fact, the JSF Investigation team was able to grab a copy of the letter presented to Haith and it spoke volumes…

If ever there was an organization unqualified to accuse another of a “failure to monitor” it is the mess known as the NCAA.

That or perhaps they can just recognize it better than anyone.
