He is just in his 2nd year - 20+ wins in both seasons and likely another national tournament appearance this year. BUT, the air really needs to be cleared and if he even suspected anything like this was even a remote possibility and just went on about his business then he has to go. I really hope that isn't the case - I have a hard time believing it could be the case, but we need to fully understand the situation, no matter where it leads.
    You honestly think a coach would know that one of his assistants was doing this and just turned a blind eye? I dont think this phases anything at Commerce other than an "wow" factor when people read the story. It's an awful story, but I have no idea how the school or program ends up catching any heat from this.

    A coaching friend said if he were a parent or booster his first couple questions to the HC would be, "How could you have someone doing something like this and not know, second how does this not also reflect on your character."

    The second pair had deposited 6 million dollars into a casino woth no proof of income. I wonder how much Marc had and if any of that was funneled to Commerce.

    The more i read and think this is the craziest thing ive seen since Penn St.
    Boo, I think this post is the craziest thing I'VE seen since Penn St lol

    This is going to get way way worse before it gets better. He was a part of an organized crime ring that appears to have held women captive. This is literally as bad as it gets without murder. Commerce would do well to cut all ties to the WHOLE STAFF to avoid any residual on the department. Penn st at least had millions and decades of history to help buffer the ncaa et al, commerce has nothing in comparison. If it even looks like someone might have should have known the NCAA is going to cut off their heads. The Athletic department should be smart enough to offer a finger(the whole bb staff) to save the rest.

    Sure takes the heat off Tarleton!! Can’t believe any college coach would be caught up in this.

    But, we’ve all sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God. Nothing really shocks me anymore. Just hope when all the dust settles something positive can come out of this.

    It really wouldn’t surprise me if others had an idea that something was amiss with him.

    Me too. No way there wasnt signs. But the idea that this is just an OH WOW moment is stupid. This is an if your eye causes you to sin moment.

    I feel for the commerce faithful.

    Bro, you are joking, right?

    You have/had a coach involved in HUMAN TRAFFICKING and PROSTITUTION. He represents/represented your program and institution.

    Of course, these are all accusations at this point. But honestly, would you want your daughter or son to attend a college where this was going on with a coach?

    This isn't you read the article and just say "wow". Nor is it even close to Penn St.'s issues. But you gotta take off your blinders. I seriously hope this isn't the sentiment of TAMUC's Admin.

    Jake is much more on target with this than you.

    EDIT. I think we need to let all the FACTS come out, which they will, then we will see the scope of this.....who used "services", who knew, were any students or student athletes involved, etc Right now many rumors are running rampant around campus. WE NEED THE FACTS NOT BS.

    It's an insanely awful story and he deserves the worst of the worst for punishment. I just don't agree with dropping a bomb on people around him who had absolutely nothing to do with it and had no idea it was going on.

    If anyone DID know, I 100% agree with you. I just don't think it's right to ruin the careers of people who got hit by this story out of left field.

    Like I said, I cant believe that Jaret would have any idea about this and not do anything about it based on my interactions with him. Here's the thing, if he even heard "rumors" without actually "knowing" about something like this and didnt ask the University to look into it then his ass should be toast. I hope that isnt the case, but we will see what comes next.

    Greed can cause people to do things they never thought they would. It can cause a person to engage in unwise and stupid decisions, cut corners, moral accommodation, make excuses turning a blind eye to right and wrong, and slip into a downward spiral of lies and self-deception, etc etc, and rationalize all of it. I imagine nearly every human has been there at one time or another to one degree or another. Maric's degree of greed must have been extremely high. Not knowing the man, I hope he can come out on the other side of this dark tunnel chagrined, ashamed, and wiser.

    If it comes out that others in the TAMUC sphere were aware of Maric's extracurricular business activities and did/said/questioned nothing about them, they should be fired.

    I think when you boil it down, we are all on the same page. The only difference is whether we think anyone else knew or suspected anything. I'm coming from the viewpoint where I've been around Coach Rose enough to get a good feel for the kind of person he is, and I don't see any way he had the slightest clue about any of this. As for our AD, I know him extremely well, and there is zero chance he knew anything about this and didn't do something to stop it. Zero.

    Millions held TOP REGARD for JoePa, and the seemingly unblemished admin at Penn St. ........UNTIL....

    NEVER, EVER think ANYONE is beyond the 7 Deadly Sins. Everyone is held captive by at least one. Only a fool would think otherwise.

    100% correct!

    When men set their own paths destruction usually follows. As in my lifetime I have found that humans can justify and reason any situation to fit their needs.

    No one is above reproach. Never say never. It is truly an inner battle to not fall prey to this type of behavior.

    I don't think I've ever struggled with participating in Human Trafficking.
