Selena Roberts (the author of the story in question) should have been thrown in prison years ago for her disgusting reporting during the Duke Lacrosse case. I refuse to take anything she says seriously, and I have a low opinion of college sports.

Q: Which column - over the span of your career - have you taken the most heat for? Why do you think readers were so upset?

Duke Lacrosse. No question. Basically, I wrote that a crime didn't have to occur for us to inspect the irrefutable evidence of misogyny and race baiting that went on that night. Not a popular stand. I received lots of hate mail, some of it threatening. I think the intense response came from Duke-player supporters who felt threatened when someone, whether it was me or another columnist, started poking at the culture of affluence and entitlement. We're always dissecting the African-American and Hispanic communities – is it gangs? is it the rap lyrics? - when trouble strikes minority athletes. Obviously, some segments of the Duke lacrosse crowd did not enjoy the scrutiny of their world.

Yea, I know the reputation of the journalist who wrote the piece, but you still have to wonder how nine players were on the outside looking in as far as eligible for the BCSCG and all of a sudden they all became eligible. :roll:

And you'll never make me beleive that Cam Newton wasn't "bought and paid for" also.

and here I was checking to see if anyone was discussing this in the college football thread. Boy do I feel dumb.
