Kentucky, March Madness and The Code
Kentucky is the focus of the NCAA tournament this year. Coach Calipari has been most successful in recruiting high school basketball players - primarily, it seems because of the assurance they will be able to play one year for him and then move on to the NBA. Is that okay? Pat Summitt, one of the greatest coaches of all time, graduated an astounding 100% of her players. How was she able to do that? What if college scholarships were for four years, so that if an athlete dropped out, or flunked out, the college would lose that scholarship for the remaining years? Athletes going to college with no intention of graduating does not just make a sham of college sports, but a mockery of the colleges and universities and the educational purposes for which they exist. What do you think? Who is responsible - the Coach, the Athletic Director, the college President, the NCAA? Do you care?
