    Guy Morriss, former football coach at Kentucky and Baylor, apparently [link=http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=4963076]encouraged his players to steal every copy of the student newspaper[/link] (at his current school, Texas A&M-Commerce, a Div II school) because it had an [link=http://www.theeasttexan.com/a-m-commerce-football-players-arrested-in-drug-bust-1.1166837]article about their teammates being arrested on drug charges[/link]. If that wasn't enough, he's stated that he's proud of his players for doing so... even though its considered theft. The first copy is free, but after that they cost $.25 apiece.

    Oh, and the school's AD? "I don?t think they are smart enough to do this on their own." Ouch.

    Too dumb to steal? I'm impressed.
