Several people have asked my opinion on last week's NCAA rejection of the U of M appeal for reduced sanctions in the Derrick Rose/SAT affair. It's ugly, it's painful . . . but it should be no surprise, particularly to those (like most of Tiger Nation) who follow college basketball closely. I wrote an essay last November for Memphis magazine in which I propose a solution. Until college presidents are honest with themselves about the role big-time hoops play on campus, why should any of us expect honesty from the players and coaches who benefit most from the current system?
