Booster groups, cheating scandals . . . . With what type of athletic programs have these terms been inextricably associated for decades now?

Shamefully, Harvard has abdicated its putative leadership role in higher education by utterly failing to show so-called lesser institutions "the way" through a demonstration of ethical courage. Instead, it has eagerly jumped on board this country's race-to-the-bottom culture train by opting to descend the grimy depths of the "better-stay-out-of-the-showers" Penn States of the world, thereby leaving the Ivy League "athletics-in-proportion" concept in tatters. They're doing just a standout job at willfully ignoring the old adage, "with privilege comes responsibility." Sad and disappointing. Will not end well for this society.

Who's been denying that Harvard's Friends' group put together a very healthy package for Amaker. Pretty sure there's a story about it with quotes from the Friends' group in The Crimson.

I've been critical of journalists that have botched the AI discussion several times in the past but are there really people denying Amaker makes A LOT more money than his predecessors?
