Re: College Admission Scandal

It is funny how some, at the time a seemingly meaningless decision, changed our lives. The good decisions and the bad that made us who we are today.

Re: Ken Griffey Jr.

Lou Pinella is a show by himself. I always liked him as a manager. A great player manager.

Re: Ken Griffey Jr.

I've said this before, but I got to watch Junior grow up. At the ball park with his dad and in Legion ball. I think the guy in the article has it wrong, though, the thing that set him apart the most was how much fun he always had playing ball. His dad was like that too, only junior has more fun. Jun...

Re: College Admission Scandal

It really shouldn't surprise anyone who has sent a kid to college in the last 15 years. It is such a racket. You have tuition. Then you have room and board - and I know none of this is different than 40 years ago when I went, but the the price of room and board can be more than the price of tuition....

Re: College Admission Scandal

Unfortunately there are more of these people in the world now. Always trying to come up with a reason to charge for nothing. They used to call those people grifters.

Re: Transfers-Anyone Know How Many Players.....

Historically, even with a signed document, athletes were expressly told they were signing with the school and if the coach should leave, they were still bound to their signing. I suspect as more scrutiny has come to the NCAA and the pressure to make changes, the students allowing to transfer, willy...

Re: Transfers-Anyone Know How Many Players.....

I heard that too. Good for him. I had heard some Miami people saying that Ohio State was trying to black him being immediately eligible. I knew that wasn't true because they never interfere with a transfer out of conference.

Re: This is BAD for LSU

I think that the schools do their best not to know. They want deniability.

Re: College Admission Scandal

Donovan is right... People with money have always sought "work arounds"...be it zoning changes or college admissions...and there are always folks who can facillitate their desires if they are willing to pay. Actually it is the American way and this is small stuff.....just a small outgrowt...

Re: College Admission Scandal

I think they will deal with it the same way they always have....except a little more quietly. There were go betweens in place that were in business to connect the dots that may no longer operate in plain sight. This sounds quite a bit like lobbying in Washington doesn't it? We all know that congress...

Re: College Admission Scandal

I'm surprised at the news media's "surprise" that this could happen. Especially when some of them have probably been involved in this whole thing. To think that a college would except money in exchange for access or a favorable review. Is that how the university system has always worked? T...
