It is becoming more and more remarkable to me that the premier event of the college basketball season includes two programs which represent nearly all that is wrong and corrupt about college basketball. I know the coaches managed to distance themselves to some degree from the particulars, but Calhoun and Calipari between them (and UK as an institution) have hit the daily double, the exacta, the trifecta and megabucks of corruption:
[ul][li]Fraudulent test scores[/li]
[li]Payments to players[/li]
[li]Payments to recruits[/li]
[li]Involvement with agents[/li][/ul]
I mean, is anyone focusing on this? It should be half of CBS’s presentation.
WHEN WE ARE TALKING CORRUPTION IN COLLEGE SPORTS, THE THINGS THESE TWO PROGRAMS HAVE DONE ARE WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT.
