LOREN WADE COSTS ARIZONA STATE TWO YEARS PROBATION.

Loren Wade might be the worst example of the kind of damage an athlete can do to a program. (We might say Maurice Clarett or Albert Means here, but Wade allegedly killed some one, for God's sake--most ethicists would agree it doesn't get much worse than that.) In addition to allegedly killing someone, ruining his own life and that of the victim's family, and screwing up Arizona State's image and lineup, Wade's improper dealings with an employee of the university have cost Arizona State two years probation from the Pac-10 and no doubt attracted the sniffing of NCAA compliance investigators.

A player recruited for ol' Sparky's team may end up in a very different type of ol' Sparky.
