Ohio State just got put under the microscope.
I knew plenty of players at UC and that small time program had a ton of shady things happening under Rick Minter. It happens everywhere.
This doesn't surprise me, re: Minter. However, I can't help but think that if a UC football player during those days went to a car dealership looking for a heavily discounted car, the response would have been, "Who are you, again?" My guess is that the players weren't receiving improper benefits as much as they were doing all sorts of academic shenanigans.
It wasn't uncommon to see an Escalade rolling around campus during the Huggins era. But I don't know for sure they belonged to basketball players. Wouldn't have surprised me if they did.
