KC Johnson Takes On Starn

We didn't see the article, but apparently Duke prof Orin Starn penned a piece
in the Herald-Sun - not currently available on line - slamming Duke athletics
and suggesting that the current program be replaced with club teams.

More importantly, he shaded his arguments in various ways, and overlooked a
number of things, which not surprisingly
caught the attention of professor KC Johnson,
who went through his piece
with a fine-toothed comb and called him out on a number of points.

Johnson has now dissected the D.A., the police department, local activists,
and the Duke faculty response, among other things. One is tempted to
suggest that he has the makings of a book in this.
