Cheap Shot

Greg Cote in the Miami Herald:

The University of Miami sent letters to boosters informing them of a strict new policy severely curtailing their interactions with student-athletes. From what I hear, henceforth, the yacht parties must be limited to two hours and the hookers to one per yacht.

How did that get past the editors?

  1. “How did that get past the editors?”

    That’s a good question and maybe I’ll look into it.

    But, I’m kind of glad it did “get past the editors.” The paper is so politically correct these days that it’s barely readable.

  2. Proud alum and former student-athlete at UM. And all I gotta say is, relax!! How did it get past the editors? Easy! Cote wrote in the opinion section and he is a satirist/comedian (or he thinks he is). It’s a joke.

  3. Cote is so good. He’s great on the Dan Le Batard Show too, by the way. This is way better than the alternative: a dry, boring that preaches about the supposed virtues of NCAA athletics.

  4. If you read the column from the beginning Cote talks about how he stumbled upon the sports talk radio show.

    It appears he is re-hashing what he heard callers say. That comment sound like something a sports talk radio caller would say.

    What I find more interesting is the fact that not one Herald reader has left a comment.

  5. Universities rake in millions and millions of dollars on the backs of these athletes, and the athletes are supposed to be satisfied with getting an education in return? If these kids can get themselves on a yacht full of models and enjoy themselves during recruing, more power to them, because once they put on the jersey the adults who don’t want to give up their inflated incomes will rip the player’s scholarship if he accepts a free pizza a t-shirt.
