More on the NCAA angle in JetSki tragedy

The Anderson Independent Mail has a story on the possible NCAA penalties that could be handed down in the aftermath of the death of track coach Jarrett Foster and the involvement of two Clemson football players in a JetSki accident.

Again, I think that it is completely inappropriate to be writing about possible NCAA sanctions at this time. Even if it were judged to be a violation, I can't imagine that it would lead to anything stronger than a warning letter.

Why is the media pushing this story?

My one hope is that this tragic affair will push Clemson's football team to come together and resolve to make 2006 a truly special season. That could be happening already.
