While giving the usual “we didn’t do nuthin’ wrong …. don’t penalize the kids …. blah blah yadda yadda” speech, SMU President Gerald Turner said:
Meanwhile Larry simply dug out his usual post-caught cheating speech he used after UCLA and Kansas…. the ones where he denies everything while crying and blubbers about “trying to help kids”.

Why SMU didn’t fire coach Larry Brown after NCAA penalties
Southern Methodist University president Gerald Turner said Tuesday night he did not contemplate firing men’s basketball coach Larry Brown in connection with NCAA rules violations that resulted in a variety of sanctions, including a ban from the upcoming season’s NCAA tournament and a two-year show-cause order for Brown.
In a telephone interview with USA TODAY Sports, Turner also said the school “is seriously considering appealing” the penalties against the basketball program as well as those levied against the men’s golf program, where the NCAA also found violations and barred the team from participating in the upcoming season’s team and individual championships. But he added that he is concerned an appeal will cause even more damage to the programs by creating a longer period of uncertainty about their status.
Turner criticized the harshness of the penalties, and without mentioning the University of North Carolina by name, said other schools facing NCAA investigations and/or infractions rulings must be “shaking in their boots” after seeing the sanctions handed SMU.
