It will probably keep them out of a major problem by admittting to it first.

LSU last fall began an investigation into the recruitment of Hicks, a defensive tackle out of Sacramento City Community College, by assistant coach D.J. McCarthy. Because LSU officials thought rules were broken, Hicks was never allowed to play a down for the Tigers last season. Had he played, LSU may have been subject to game forfeitures. LSU also did not allow McCarthy to do any recruiting last fall, and after the season, McCarthy was let go.

"As disappointed as I am in the violations that occurred, I have an equal amount of pride in our compliance office's quick actions, in our thorough investigation and in our reactions to the findings," LSU chancellor Michael Martin said in an LSU release on Tuesday. "I believe we have avoided potentially more severe sanctions because we self-detected these violations early and took immediate disciplinary measures."

Not only by admitting to it, but sending the two violators packing, not to mention the player never seeing the field...
