mrjames, I think your rebuttal to Boston Lion can be summarized as, "In the history of the Ivy League, there have probably been other teams which benefited from hastily raised alumni donations, had players cheat in class or been ruled by the NCAA to have committed recruiting violations."

That's not a great rebuttal. Sure, in the entire history of the Ivy League, especially across all sports, there have been other cheaters. But the difference is that, with this Harvard team under Amaker, ALL OF THESE THINGS are happening under his watch. It's not that other Ivy programs have never had smoke around them, it's that there is a tremendous amount of smoke around THIS ONE TEAM, more smoke than has ever surrounded a single Ivy program in any sport.

By the way, as far as I know, I think Amaker IS THE ONLY Ivy basketball coach to have been dinged by the NCAA, certainly the only current coach.

And as far as academic ringers are concerned, have you read this article about Zena Edosomwan? It's fascinating, especially the comments.
