Nothing would bring a bigger smile to my face than to see a report about Duke finally getting busted for some NCAA violation.
It's not that I hate Ohio State as much as I'm amazed by the ignorance of most OSU fans that have the "not my school" syndrome. Ohio State is just one of many "dirty" programs across the country.
UC had its problems, I'm sure XU had its problems, and I know my Syracuse Orangemen had their problems back in the 80s and 90s with athletes being given cars from a local dealership.
I honestly wish that college athletes were paid. That would solve the problems. Athletes generate millions of dollars in revenue for their respective institutions, they should get a piece of the action. Giving them an "education" isn't enough, when the vast majority of your upper eschelon athletes are only at a college or university to improve their pro stock.
And Duke has been implicated in some bad things. I even alluded to it by referencing Myron Piggie. He "confessed" to paying Corey Magette and a few other players, "without Coach K's knowledge."
