Lute Olson under NCAA investigation

In keeping with the over all theme of bad luck and bull $h!t surrounding the storied Wildcat coach and program the Tucson Citizen broke this story today.

Any other program, any other coach and this goes away as if nothing ever happened. This is at face value an honest mistake that has already been handled, but Coach Olson has been so nasty to the media and will probably been answering about this for a while. I know he has every right to dislike the beat writers and the national pundits that keep telling him he is to old and has lost his edge, but you should avoid picking fights with people who buy ink by the barrel and paper by the ton. I hope this blows over, my gut tells me it won't.

All the while we are still waiting to hear if Lute and his new staff did a good enough job reassuring Abdul Gaddy that the controversy and turmoil surrounding the program and coaching staff is over...OOPS, do you think Ben Howland hasn't all ready called this kid and let him know that no matter what Lute said to him it is still a mess at Arizona.
