If we move
According to multiple sources, Father William Leahy, BC president, voiced concerns to UConn President Susan Herbst about the APR standing of the three-time national champion men's basketball program and nothing about geography.
"I'm not sure if any of us should take the good father seriously."I'm not sure if any of us should take the good father seriously.
He just might want to go to a biblical reference about throwing stones. Miami is about to get the death penalty. Georgia Tech is being reviewed by the NCAA. And North Carolina's football team has serious infractions. They had a tutor taking the exams and writing papers for the players to ensure they got passing grades. What do you want to bet this type of thing is rampant in the major sports programs.
Everyone of those programs had years of serious problems. It was only by sheer chance that the problems were uncovered. The NCAA does not police any university which allows the programs to cheat.
Someone reviewed the accuracy of reporting by the B10 schools regarding the APR and determined that the scores were fudged. The NCAA never checked to see if this report was valid.
It stinks that UConn has a lousy APR. I'm not excusing the scores. But I believe strongly that many if not most of the successful bb and football programs have as bad or worse APRs if those universities were honest in their evaluation of their athletic programs.
If you think it stinks because JC let the system down, then you are unintentionally saying JC and UConn should have cheated like most of the rest of the programs. Is that what we really want?
