Just saw where UT athletics was given over $560,000 to gain admissions for dumb, rich kids. Hmmmm.

Whew! Glad to know that. Now, what about the admissions person/people?

I think that the tennis coach WAS the admissions person/people. Therein lies the problem.

Lack of institutional control is, I believe, what the NCAA calls it. :roll:

Much as I might like to see some P5 schools get stung I'm hard put to see how the NCAA has a play in this. If some school wants admit, or put on a sports scholarship the dumb and / or clumsy child of a well off parent (or friend of a parent in a scratch each other's backs deal) well, mistakes in recruiting are made every year.
