Trust me, this kind of thing goes on everywhere.....or do you think some run "clean" programs? Face it, players get special perks all across the NCAA. I would say that most perks come in the form of academic favors.
Of course, just ignore the hypocrisy of the NCAA who knew about the violations before last years Sugar Bowl. They simply use the players, w ...[text shortened]... ed to me what its all about. Its about money and control, not about "playing by the rules".
Trust you??? You NEVER played any sports in college.
You are not on the inside for knowledge at any college.
What the hell do YOU think you know???
The line of crap that athletes get all of the "special perks" especially "academic ones"
shows your ignorance.
Yes, I am sure there are many rules bent, and favors given at many universities.
That is why coaches that allow it to happen get canned (like Tressel).
Look at the universities and the coaches with track records of cheating, and they probably do cheat.
But to categorically denounce all of them as cheats shows your ignorance.
I played sports in college. I was never given ANY "special favors"
I made the Dean's list every semester in school as well.
I got out with one degree and was 9 hours short of a second degree.
There are many just like me too who were clean and did their classwork.
It is tiresome listening to idiots who lump all athletes together as "dumb jocks".
Don't get me wrong. There are some who are dumb as a stump....SOME.
Your sour grapes that your Buckeyes got caught, does not incriminate everyone else.
