Women's basketball recruiter sanctioned for sharing a Netflix account


When the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) involves itself with regulating over a thousand sports teams, organizations and athletes, it's normally a big deal - especially when deal-makers are looking to offer all kinds of incentives for the best young players. Then there's Southeast Missouri State, whose former assistant coach has violated rules by talking to recruits in quiet season, in addition to offering water bottles and shirts for a local baseball camp. The final disgraceful act? (Assistant coach Ben Coomes left the school this summer after these violations happened.) He apparently gave recruits the login details to his Netflix account, which meant they could use the streaming service without paying, the monsters. As Daily Dot notes, compared to the allegations of fraud agains the University of North Carolina, accused of offering faux classes for more than 18 years, the occasional Air Bud revisit on someone else's account doesn't quite seem so bad.
