    Getting back on some what the topic.

    As an older guy, it simply amazes me as to what the "glory" program coaches get away with to a degree. Can someone find me a mold of Adolph Rupp or Bobby Knight? The sport needs some no non-sense guys. They weren't perfect, but they didn't cheat either.......well at least they haven't got caught yet!!!!!!!!!

    It brings up some interesting things.

    1) Every time a scandal starts like this, the first thing the university and its fans do is trash the guy starting it. Discredit the voice and change the public's focus.

    2) This is one of those scandals which most people believes happens everywhere. I remember when a transcript of Andy Katzenmoyer's schedule was made public and he was made fun of. Most fans tend to accept that a fairly large amount of high level college athletes aren't getting a high level education.

    If you're interested in this story - and looking at both sides of it - take a look at the blog of Bradley Bethel, a learning specialist at the University of North Carolina. Bethel pokes all sorts of holes in the media's sensationalizing of the UNC story and the motives of the so-called "whistle blower". He writes in a very academic tone so some of it is a little more challenging to follow.
