Just saw the news making headlines today. FBI has arrested and charged several people in a nationwide scandal and fraud investigation in which some college coaches were accepting bribes in return for authorizing/approving students as being "athletic recruits" when in fact, the incoming students never played a day in that sport. The FBI also exposed wealthy parents giving "donations" to the college(s) so their kids can get in. Additionally, they found that parents were paying for someone to take their kids SAT test and at times, hired this company to change SAT scores. The "donations" part doesnt shock me. It has been going on for decades. But, for a college coach to be involved and risking everything for money. is sad and surprising. If you were a college athletic head coach, would you risk everything for $50-100K?
We are talking about "elite" schools.
