    I can better appreciate Mac's Integrity...

    Some disturbing articles on the story behind the University of Washington's Rose Bowl season in 2000. These guys did whatever they wanted and the entire community let them get away with it. When people aren't held accountable for their actions, we do them a disfavor in life... Brings me back to some of the decisions Mac had to make with guys like Berryman, etc.

    Wow. Thanks for posting that.

    AND it sounds like UCLA knew all of this when hiring Ricky...

    Yup...the dollar is most important to so many schools. Integrity and repeated inappropriate actions in the past are quickly forgotten.

    This is extremely over the top, but it's not like Mac didn't have guys get in trouble. I mean he let Berryman back on the team for goodness sake.

    And that ultimately added to the list of things he was let go for. He staked his reputation on Jason, and Jason made yet another mistake. It hurt mac a lot.

    Wow, just think what his players will do in the City of Angels at UCLA. Scary stuff.

    Its tough, print never dies. But to be honest I'd never heard of these things until now. I just new UW was a power back in 2k.

    Seriously would you allow one recruiting class of all 4 star bad apples and bad press that follows for one National Championship?
