About 15 hours after this news came down, I'm left confused over basically one issue: Who was told about this and when? Kim Anderson wasn't told about this investigation during the interview process despite the fact that Mizzou had been given a "verbal notice of inquiry" before Haith left. Hell, Haith himself said he didn't know about the investigation until months later. Meanwhile, when Mack Rhoades interviewed for the athletic director position a year later, he was told. I have no idea what a verbal notice of inquiry is, but that's really confusing.

That doesn't make it less confusing. You're told you're being investigated, but you can't tell coaches or prospective coaches yet? Either someone is being misleading, or the NCAA's processes are even stranger/dumber than we thought.

Or both, I guess. It could always be both.

The more I think about these violations, by the way, the more I think Mizzou's set of self-imposed punishments is pretty appropriate. We'll see if the NCAA's dartboard of random enforcement agrees.

But hey, at least the 2013-14 wins were vacated and not the 2011-12 wins. Though, now that I think about it, Mizzou should have included "vacate the 2012 NCAA Tournament appearance" among the self-imposed punishments...
