More On Minnesota

Here's another comment on what has transpired at Minnesota:

"The paid coach, the gate receipts, the special training tables... the recruiting from high schools, the demoralizing publicity showered on the players, the devotion of an undue proportion of time to training, the devices for putting a desirable athlete, but weak scholar, across the hurdles of the examinations -- these ought to stop."

Oh, wait, that was from the 1929 report. The Tarnished Gophers have
a long history of scandal
, as we had vaguely remembered.
