    A lot that's wrong about college athletics happened in this case.

    "Did Phil Jackson have to motivate Michael Jordan?"

    Oh really, coach? Are you comparing your athletes to professionals? I'm sure the NCAA would have loved to have heard you say that.

    Very good story and investigation. And this is just a track and field team, not a major revenue-producing sport.

    Or, to turn it around, is the track coach trying to compare himself to Phil Jackson? That's some nerve.
    I think some of these non-revenue sports believe they can get away with anything because they think they'll be under the radar all the time. How many abusive baseball, soccer and swimming coaches have we heard about in college sports? Quite a few.
