Kansas’ Bill Self has been called a cheater by the NCAA; his power only grew

No NCAA scandal has so clearly reflected just how filthy the sport of college basketball is and how impossible it can be to hold anyone accountable when a school digs on behalf of a winning coach.

NEW ORLEANS — Just 921 days ago, the NCAA handed a document to the University of Kansas that called its men’s basketball head coach a cheat.

Since then, Kansas has won 81 basketball games, signed four McDonald’s All-Americans, won two Big 12 titles and now made a Final Four. As for the coach? Well, Teflon Bill Self was so embarrassed by it all that Kansas then gave him a lifetime contract which might as well be a major pointed to Indianapolis – an NCAA embarrassment that could only be overcome by Self holding the national title trophy Monday night.
