Of course the universities are upset. They expect to be the ones collecting bribes, generally much larger bribes, to jump kids to the front of the admissions line.

They've probably been buying their kid's way through life from the day they were born. Why would college be any different?

Wasn't the NCAA clearinghouse put in place to prevent this type of thing from occurring?? When my kids played (before the clearinghouse was in use) there was a tremendous amount of cheating going on. The whole idea was to create this clearinghouse to circumvent those that want to cheat. I guess they will always find a way.

Grades, maybe. But saying Buffy was on the tennis team while she was influencing on YouTube is something different.

Exactly. The clearinghouse is just for grades. If a school wants to put a non athlete on their team, the NCAA doesn’t give a hoot.

Heard today that 24 Nobles students were accepted at Early Admittance at Harvard. I know 3 are female hockey players. Wonder if any of these parents are sweating as investigations continue. I think nobles only graduates 100-110 so this is a big number.
