I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
After a spectacular start--last year leading Harvard to its first NCAA appearance in 65 years---Tommy Amaker faces trouble. The co-captains of Amaker's BB team are among those implicated in a widespread academic cheating scandal. One of them--who could have become the Ivy player of the year--will leave the school (at least for now). Both of them are out for the year.
The scandal is widespread and includes more than a hundred students, mostly nonathletes. So, this scandal in no way resembles the kind of academic fraud that occurred at North Carolina. Also, I have seen no evidence that Amaker's players were driven to cheat because they were doing poorly or were underqualified for the classes. And I doubt that one can blame Amaker for his players' bad decisions. Nevertheless, it is a big blow to his team's hopes this year.
"University of Miami officials flew to Boston on Monday to meet with Harvard's Tommy Amaker in an attempt to woo the Crimson coach to the ACC school, multiple sources told ESPN.com."
Time to try another U of M I guess...
Which was more annoying while watching Blue get crushed in Salt Lake City? M continuing to shoot like a 3rd grader on a 10' rim or the near constant viewing on the bottom line of Harvard, thus Amaker's, victory over BC, a team that handled us with ease at Crisler.
