New Husky football head coach Steve Sarkisian just can't seem to stay out of trouble. Given the talmudic nature of the NCAA's rule book, the occasional violation is understandable. But Sark followed up his smoke machine/WWE intro fiasco with a recruiting meal that was open to the media--also a no-no.
We're not so naive as to think that a team can succeed in recruiting without throwing its players a bone or two. Try as the NCAA might, you can't build a multi-billion dollar industry without a little bit of that money trickling down to the people who create it. Every modern-era stretch of Husky football success has been accompanied by NCAA rules violations.
