    And now it potentially has massive implications...

    If the NCAA was policed by Federal law enforcement, this entire house of cards would tumble.

    Going to need to read more about this case. Have some questions about it all could happen.

    Rich people pay a coach to claim student is also an athlete to help student move up the list of students to accept.

    Student is not offered an athletic scholarship?

    Student gets on campus but doesn't participate?

    Someone else has to be involved, right? Or am I missing something?

    Hard to compete for scholarships for your average, good student, below average athlete into major schools when you have millionaires bribing officials to make it happen. We found out about this time last year that it takes more than a 7A high school, 4 year captain of majorette squad to be granted an opportunity to twirl baton for the Crimsonettes. I was naive to thinking that being pretty enough, sharp enough, having a high GPA, and being a competition winning twirler and dancer to be accepted by my beloved U of A.

    Payola is the only way to go-a.

    They at least should make them take a few bull in the ring hits from the real football players on campus. It would seem more legit that way.

    Dunno know 'bout that - could explain the surfeit of "3-stars" getting "accepted" at All Bran and then dispensed with. They could be .5 (point-.5) stars with kick-backs accounting for the other 2 1/2 stars then they go elsewhere to the more prestigious likes of Black Hills Ore & Ordure Scholastic U. or Invertebrate Animal Husbandry Accounting College.

    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    "They"?

    The kid or the somebody bribed?

    (Sorry, I'm a syntax jerk).


    Both I'm guessing.

    why can't they just pay for a building or make a donation to the endowment fund like all of the other rich folks?
