If my spouse has been fudging our tax returns for years and I sign return I am accountable whether or not I looked at them.
And with rare exceptions (Yale ice hockey for example), the Ivies don't generally compete at the highest level of college sports (although they do play in D1).
The Ivies do compete D1, at the highest level. They play in the lower level in football and do not participate in bowl games. Other than that, they want to win the national championships, want to be in March Madness, want the competition to bring it on. Yale won the national championship in men's lacrosse last year.
@charpen: Coaches get a set number of recruits (2 - 3). 9 times out of 10 these recruits have lower - test scores / transcripts / essay quality.
I can't get my head around Zadeh, the USC Dentistry professor with 40 years at USC (undergrad/grad/prof) USC faculty kids generally get admitted (if they meet the academic criteria), and they get free tuition (not board). He is not one of the so called 'wealthy, entitled parents' He paid a $100k bribe by refinancing his house and credit card payments spread over six months; he obviously didn't have the liquidity to afford the bribe and now he's going to pay for it with his career, his freedom, his family etc. What a sad waste!
