    Great article on recent NCAA issues

    Great read forn USA today NCAA sports in 2010-11: A school year for scandal - USATODAY.com

    Here are my favorite exerpts:

    "What a school year this has been for the NCAA. The hits began early and kept right on coming: Rick Pitino. Michigan. North Carolina. Cecil Newton. Georgia. Alabama.
    Have I missed anyone? Well, John Calipari, but with him, it's more of a lifetime achievement award"

    and

    "There appears to be no truth to the rumor that if Ohio State gets accused of one more NCAA violation, it will leave the Big Ten and be granted immediate membership in the Southeastern Conference."

    Re: Great article on recent NCAA issues

    I saw this HBO special last night and was amazed at the players who came forward to admit what they received during the recruiting process.

    It was funny to hear Tom Penders compare collegiate recruiting to "walking through a sewer".


    "...On Wednesday, HBO reported that four former Auburn players said they were paid thousands of dollars to play there. One of them, an ex-Auburn defensive lineman named Stanley McClover, also spoke of receiving "money handshakes" from boosters while visiting Louisiana State, Michigan State and Ohio State. While in Columbus, he said, he also received sexual favors...."


    "We are first and foremost an educational institution that values integrity, honesty and treating others with fairness and respect".

    -ISU President Gregory Geoffroy; circa May 2003.
