Musings From the Bald Prophet: Coaches Gone Wild Part 2?

While the Bleacher Report community puts in it's two cents on the percolation of scandal down Louisville way in Oxford, Mississippi, the Rebels' coaching "bad boy" has settled his dispute with a Cincinnati cab driver by pleading guilty to disorderly conduct. 

This basically means that he probably said a few of the choice words the cabbie accused him of spewing during the tussle in January, but rather than turn this into a further discussion of "he said, he said" he pleaded guilty, got probation and decided to move on, which he could very well do from Ole Miss in three years as the university decided not to renew his contract.

Has it gotten to the point where coaches have decided to follow the lead of some of their charges and taken a bizzaro approach to the cliche, "what's good for the goose is good for the gander?"

Seriously: Gillispie, Kennedy, Huggins, Eustachy, Wimp Sanderson—the list goes on and on.
