Now I realize that “check out the hypocrisy of college athletics!” articles are a dime a dozen these days, but damn, this one’s really well written. This line in particular just about made me swoon:
In 2011, Slive — a man whose joy-evoking athletic talent has never inspired a single jersey purchase, let alone a lucrative television rights bidding war — reportedly received nearly $1.6 million in compensation from a conference that is considered a non-profit organization by the Internal Revenue Service.
I only wish there’d been some way to fit a Michael Adams reference in there somewhere.
If you’re jonesing for a heavy dose of sarcasm this morning, go no further.
