I didn't deep dive into that report but I'm not seeing anything glaring or definitive. Any way it is looked at it is a largely bogus claim to include women's soccer in that scandal. That program has absolutely at no time ever needed to rely on anything fraudulent to recruit and retain top talent. Perhaps most telling is the fake classes were set up specifically in the afro-american dept. Not to be insensitive but that diminishes the pool of possible women's soccer students involved. It just doesn't add up. The process is a student athlete gets admitted to the program the same as any student. There's just no scenario that would put a student athlete in a situation that is different from her peers in the soccer program.

I know Anson Dorrance has his detractors but he's far from dumb. He wouldn't risk his career on anything like that. What's in it for any coach to do that unless they needed the talent enrolled at any cost?
