When covering Indiana basketball, I wrote about the end of Kelvin Sampson's short tenure there. He was ousted, eventually, because he had lied about his part in – let us all shout this now – very minor NCAA rules transgressions involving the use of telephones to contact recruits. Without going too in detail, Sampson's culpability in the matter depended almost entirely on whether he realized where certain calls were coming from. That is to say, whether or not he had looked at the caller ID on his phone before answering. Sampson steadfastly claimed that he had not, despite the fact that on the particular phone he had a the time it would have been nearly impossible to not read the name or phone number, printed in large letters on the screen, before accepting the call. Sampson maintained, though, that he was so anxious to receive calls from recruits – he was barred from placing them due to violations he'd committed at Oklahoma – that he simply answered the phone right away, as soon as it rang, without letting his eyes scan the letters or numbers less than an inch above the spot on the screen he'd press to take the call.
