'The Bare Minimum'
Inside Higher Ed (Mar. 27): “'The Bare Minimum'"
The NCAA’s allegations that Syracuse University failed to properly monitor its basketball program for over a decade, leading to academic fraud, improper payment to athletes by a booster and failure to follow its own drug testing policies, led to some administrative restructuring at the university. But some are skeptical that the changes are meaningful. "It doesn’t look like they’re doing much of anything,” said Allen Sack, UNH business professor and former president of the Drake Group, an organization pushing for more emphasis on academics in college sports. “Or they’re doing the bare minimum, just doing what you have to do to kind of imitate a semblance of trying to do something.”
