The Story Behind the UM Football Scandal Story

In the Herald this morning.

Charles Robinson, the Yahoo! sportswriter who broke the story, sounds very straight. Most interesting to me are his comments about the ex-UM players, now in the NFL, who justify their actions on the basis of "all the money that the UM had been making off of them."

When life is reduced to dollars and cents, it's not very pretty.

(I don't mean to confine this observation to the students, by any means. I am simply saying that when relationships are evaluated as transactions that can be quantified in gold, then disaster will finally follow.)
