Can You Find the Scandal in This Story?

2 Nov

Here’s another heart warming story from the world of American college athletics.

A salacious sex scandal is beginning to unravel at the University of Louisville, where campus parties provided by the director of basketball operations and a local madam, provided strippers and sex for players, recruits and their guardians along with money provided to the players to pay for the sex…and wouldn’t you know it…the head coach, Mr. Rick Pitino, knew absolutely nothing about it!

How scandalous! Young college men, students and basketball players all, provided with strippers and with money to pay for sexual favors! And now the NCAA is launching an investigation to get to the bottom of the whole sordid story…and even the University of Louisville has hired an investigator to find out what it actually is that the University of Louisville has done! Because apparently no one there knows.

And should the investigations prove that money was provided to students and basketball players and guardians… then the punishment will most likely mean a postseason ban and loss of scholarships for the Louisville basketball team. Or in other words, the students will be punished!

Because the real scandal here is that athletes were given something, when we all know that athletes are supposed to perform for nothing except the privilege of attending their university for free…even though their work precludes their ability to find the time to attend that university.

The University of Louisville is a public university in Louisville, Kentucky. It is a member of the Kentucky state university system, where room and board and tuition for a Kentucky resident comes to around 20 thousand dollars per year. And where the director of athletics is paid 1.4 million dollars per year and the basketball coach has a 51 million dollar contract. That’s the equivalent of 2550 students each year.

But I digress because the real scandalous and salacious part of this story is not that young athletes were provided with sexual favors at a Kentucky university but rather that millions and millions and millions and millions of dollars are made by the university off of the labor of their athletes and is then spread around among university officials and coaches, while their academic students are still required to pay thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars to attend the university.

And what do the athletes get? Illicit sexual favors in exchange for their hard work? That’s it?

The new American University business model: Pimp and prostitute. User and Usurer. And they know not what they do…

Now that’s a scandal.

    ….and right in the heart of Bible thumping Kentucky, too.

    And the student body says nothing.
    That is also a scandal. As long as students demand nothing and are content to support the system, why should things change?

    Reading this made me feel deeply sorrowful. These young men are given admission only to be used, they barely get to see the inside of a classroom? What sort of qualifications do they get at the end of four years? What do they learn while in college, other than basketball? Oh God, what a waste of everything, including some unfortunate parents’ sons.

    I simply see this as one tiny part of a money- and male-dominated society. Where can we NOT look to find sex scandals of men screwing around and using public monies to do so? It is laughable to pretend anything will be done about it, in the big picture. Who will guard the guards when most guards participate? And, in cases like this, where money is to be had and back-door and under-the-table deals are an everyday part of doing business–and everyone knows it–it is double-guaranteed nothing will change.

    If women were the power folk, would things be as bad? Could very well be. Power does corrupt both genders. But studies so far indicate that more women are more cooperative in groups, and keep an eye out for the greater good and the benefit of future good–e.g. children, infrastructure, etc.–than most men–and that women are far less adversely affecting by raging hormones than are men (shown to be judgement-impaired by raging testerone levels when excited).
