    Ok... so little Ricky Neweasel finally got caught by the NCAA and by U of W. Yeah to all the fans that couldnt stand the smug fawker... but as much as I sincerely didnt care for the man as a coach (dont flame me any bullsh!t about he was a good coach either, Colorado is STILL being punished for his indiscretions (Cheating)) I have to seriously question the reasoning behind his firing...

    True: He placed bets in a pool with his friends on NCAA games - in a different sport - on the other side of the country

    True: When asked pointed "did you bet on NCAA basketball" he said "No" - a true lie if his explanation is untrue, but it sounds like an honest mistake to me, not a dodge to get out of trouble, especially since about 5 minutes later he admitted it.

    True: His replacement ALSO placed bets in the same pools as Neuheisel and admitted as much to both the AD and the NCAA - Yet he has been chosen to succeed Neuheisel as head coach

    True: The new coach costs roughly $500,000 less per year and hasnt taken out a 1.5 million dollar loan from the University

    So... Can someone please explain to me exactly why Neuheisel got fired? For placing bets? For being a lousy lay for the AD?

    Yup. I've followed the whole saga (didn't know about his replacement though) and he deserved to get the kabosh.
