Re: Fake Sailors...
Okay, where was all this "free money" when I was a penniless college sailing coach in my grad school days many many moons ago?? ;-) None of our students were recruited, and I don't believe BU would have had any way of knowing from my undergraduate application that I'd ever seen a sailboat, much less sailed one. And it was a fairly bare-bones program, though we did all right in NEISA, racing against MIT and Haaaahvid, among others.
More seriously, and if it's of any reassurance, I read in Saturday's WSJ, page A3, that according to the prosecutors, the Stanford sailing coach, who was allowed to plead to a single count of racketeering conspiracy, "didn't take any money for himself", meaning presumably it all went to the sailing program.
Likely to get probation...
