E.J. Liddell plays basketball for Ohio State, which lost its March Madness opener. The social media reaction he received as a result was, at the least, none too friendly.
I only mention this because of a comment at the blog a couple of days ago to the effect that paying players offends some who wish to maintain the belief they’re like the players because they’ve gone to the same school.
Maybe I’m missing something, but I don’t think that’s how it works these days.
