    Let us recap his fall at Ole Miss here.

    Didn't we only hear a very small amount of what was alleged to have happened there? Wasn't there a big investigation, the results of which remained hidden from public view, but evidently convinced Hugh to leave a gigantic buyout behind without protest? Anyone remember more details?

    He blamed Houston Nutt for the NCAA sanctions, Nutt lawyered up and found the hooker phone calls.

    He was cheating his ass off recruiting wise

    He may have been cheating, but the morals clause is what got him. He was told by the AD to resign or he would be fired via the morals clause. So he bowed out and left $15 million on the table.

    I don't think paying a prostitute is an unredeemable act. In fact, it’s on the level of public intoxication or a 20 mph+ speeding ticket.

    Calling hookers on your company phone will violate most every morals clause in any contract

    And he wasn’t even charged, nor did it bring any legal implications.

    If his family forgave him and stuck with him, why should anyone else care?

    Yeah, but he was such a pious piece of crap. He knowingly made a mockery of his religion, which happens to be the religion practiced by the majority of the fan base.

    I agree with this. I am not a fan of prostitution, and the reasons are about sex slavery etc, but for the most part, he paid someone for sex. He didn't have knowledge of a child rapist and not tell anyone.

    That hypocrisy bothers me more than anything. I would think more of him if he just came out and said "Meh, I am not a Christian, I was just faking, going to get on with my life now" or he actually repented and started following his religion's actual doctrines.

    If calling hookers is wrong, I don't want to be right.

    That would put you out of business since you are the hooker

    We all fall short and we all stumble. And we all are sometimes in denial.

    I'm not giving him a pass, I'm just not writing him off for a mistake that did no lasting harm to anybody. He made a mockery of the dominant faith of the country, in the same way many do who adhere to it but stray from its teaching. Paul was writing letters about it long ago, and I don't mean Finebaum.

    You never did accept the subtlety of a urinal foot tap. You just pull it out and see who doesn't run away.

    Is that completely true though?

    maybe I am missing something. Nobody was murdered, raped, or maimed though?

    I can’t speak for his family but I’m willing to bet many have lasting emotional harm from those situations.

    I still think there are people out there who would do a good job coaching college students football that aren't scumbags, and I think we should look for one of them.

    Call me Pollyanna, but it's just the way I want to see the world.

    I have more of a problem with the accusations against him of liking teenage girls while coaching high school girls' basketball. If the guy wants to screw hookers, I don't care. I am amazed at the stupidity of using your state issued phone to do it, however.

    Oh, that does sound more serious.
