Paul Finebaum on ESPN today: "Boosters want to win. I've seen this my entire life. I used to be an investigative reporter. People may feign having a moral compass but, ultimately, they don't care. They want to win."

When people, especially rabid sports fans, donate tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to an athletic program, they're not interested in developing character or creating a great experience for scholar-athletes. They want wins.

I am guessing this Finebaum comment was partly in response to the Baylor situation, and the formerly supposedly aggrieved, now quietly skulking away, Baylor football coach, following revelations about how energetically he and his staff tried to cover up things.

Not that the recent revelations will mean much to HIS boosters.

IMO only way this can be fixed is by removing control over money flow from the institutions that benefit from the current system. Which will not happen in my lifetime.
