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...

We at least Scott should know the ins and outs of medicare fraud. :lol: The more the government gets involved with things, the more they are abused.

Re: Waffle House War...Ga. Vs Georgia Tech

In our years of cruising on our sailboats, I have had to clean too much fish, too early. The smell of fish in the morning does not whet my appetite...the smell of good coffee, sizzling eggs in butter...now that's a horse of a different tune. I've never been a coffee guy, but I get that, when we liv...

Re: Waffle House War...Ga. Vs Georgia Tech

We made lobster omelots in the Bahamas...we ate lobster morning, noon, and night...until I never wanted to see one again (I was spearing them from under reef ledges). Finally screamed "Stop"...made the best burger that I ever had, on bimini bread. But I will not have fish for breakfast......
