No, not that Providence.

That was kind of my point. Every program has these violations, despite compliance folks existing to babysit coaches, so why passive aggressively call out CD and JL? If your beef is with the system (read: the NCAA), then direct the frustrations there, but calling out one coach from one program in a sea of violations is petty.No, you really wouldn't. To begin with, the list would be ridiculously long, and the regulations obscure. I know a few of Rutgers' violations.
The oddest I specifically know of involved the time Rutgers was playing at Seton Hall and a prospective recruit's mother walked up to CVS and gave her a hug. Seton Hall promptly reported Rutgers for the unauthorized contact with the recruit's (Essence Carson) mother. Another involved giving the fan club a tour of the locker room at which time a locker was set up with a fake jersey, etc. for a prospective recruit (who went elsewhere, eventually). Rutgers gave permission to a player (Tasha Pointer, I think) to play in a summer league game without NCAA authorization. A player went to a WNBA game on the fan club bus during the summer prior to her freshman year (she paid her own way). And yes, the same sort of "dead period" stuff, IIRC. Also excessive practices, at one time. And Vivian was suspended a game by the NCAA once, I don't remember what she did.
As several have said, every program has them, and I suppose most self-report them, because the punishments are generally mild, as the violations are minor.
I do find truth in what Raoul was complaining about, as those sort of violations seem to occur frequently across the WBB landscape and are just inexplicable. As others say, there are whole departments whose sole job is to keep the coaches in line.
