How ugly is this New York Times story on purported academic favoritism for football players at Florida State? Put it this way: that the academics in question were “online hospitality courses on coffee, tea and wine” is the most benign part of the story. There’s plenty of sleaze to go around, in other words. Sad, but hardly shocking.
Given the NCAA’s current face off with North Carolina over alleged academic improprieties there, you have to wonder if they’ll jump in on this one.
