It seems that the NCAA has an obsession with Jerry Tarkanian. The relentless pursuit of the man is mind-boggling. After all the time and energy spent, the NCAA has come up with the lastest infractions--an unpaid telephone bill by a potential recruit.

On May 17, 1991, officials at the University of Virginia held a news conference to announce that they had uncovered a series of loans to student-athletes and graduate assistant coaches.
