The Rigors of Recruitment

Drugs. Alcohol. Girls taking off their clothes and loving each other. Coaches flaunting the number of flat screens in their homes. University presidents flaunting their international connections.

Just the usual stuff when recruiting hot shot prepsters for college football and basketball.

While none of this should come as a surprise to any sports fan with an objective sense of perspective, it always startles.

If only we cared as much about future teachers as we do about shifty scatbacks and behemoth linebackers. But, you know, skewed as it may be, we just don’t.

Anyway the latest great expose of the razzle dazzle of the whole process can be consumed here.
