    You might want to clear out the spam. I met Mr. McCauley a few years ago. What a class act. Sadly, rather than local stand out athletes like McCauley, the Majerus Biondi strategy of recruiting thugs like Kwamain Mitchell and Willie Reed and refusing to punish them for assaults on female students leaves our daughters in danger and the ball program far less endearing.
