Colleges show winning more important than integrity

D-I coaches often make more being fired for running crooked programs than they do when they’re hired to run crooked programs.
Down here, Rutgers, once New Jersey’s proudest state-funded academic institution, a few years ago decided that football comes first. RU played and lost two nights ago — a Wednesday night, a “school night” — for ESPN, at the University of South Florida.
RU was in large part defeated by Mo Plancher, who ran for 135 yards and is described as “a sixth-year senior.” But good running backs often average more yards per carry than credits per semester.
