And this is why a program like Memphis is in shambles right now - because they believed it was worth the risk of getting "dirty" in order to have success in the here and now. I'm no McDermott fanboy, but any amount of success isn't worth selling your soul, because eventually the devil comes to collect...
Of course by the time he comes to collect, Memphis has already played in a championship game, something we have never done in our school history. Their fans enjoyed years of conference titles, high seeds in the tourney, and tons of national press. Just because the NCAA ripped out a couple pages from a book doesn't mean that those events didn't happen. And also, their program in "shambles" today is still years ahead of our program that is building it the right way.
