What's the odds of the NCAA investigating recruiting at Ole Miss?
Meh. If they do, they'll uncover the obvious.
The "cheating" - of which I'm sure there's plenty - only matters to the extent it gives them an edge with regards to their recruiting rivals: the rest of the SEC and higher-profile schools in the other super conferences. If they were giving their recruits strippers and weed....well, do you really think that makes a difference for schools like us? If they STOPPED doing stuff like that (assuming they were), would it help non-SEC schools a whole lot? Nah, not really.
It's like the Ben Johnson/Carl Lewis/East Germany/Valery Borzov/etc. days in sprinting. Of course all those guys were on performance enhancing drugs. But if they STOPPED taking them, they'd go from 9.8-10.0 100 meter guys to being 10.1-10.2 guys. The 10.7 guy isn't losing out on much because he didn't have a chance in the first place.
