"It’s time to start applauding the big-time programs that have found ways to take the academics out of college."
The University of North Carolina gets a lot of love for its academic fraud scandal, and why not? Setting up an entire academic department devoted to paper classes that never even met? That's exactly the kind of ingenuity that a liberal education is supposed to produce. So why no recognition for the University of Minnesota, which set the standard by which every other athletic fraud scandal is measured? It hardly seems fair.
