Ethics in College Sports

Often times you’ll hear coaches say, “We’re doing it the right way”. That was the quote from the head coach of the Ole Miss football program after they landed the #1 football recruit in the nation yesterday. I’ve also heard coaches say, “We run a clean program. We do things the right way.” So my question is, is this just a front for perception, or is there really a belief that “doing things the right way” will get their programs to where they want them to be.

I know that message was cast out a lot when Todd Lichligther was the b-ball coach at Iowa. Everybody always said what a clean, good program he ran. But he ultimately got fired because the team was so horrible. But he did the it the right way, and he’s not coaching division 1 anymore.
