    I didn't see where these dopes, crooks and dipshits were offered scholarships. No scholarship offer, no reporting them up the chain.

    Designating them an athlete that a coach wants to recruit just ticks another box to get them moved in front of some. The more boxes ticked, the better their chances of getting in.

    I read where the funds went into the schools athletic kitty for two coaches. The schools should have noticed the increase in the account.

    It could happen:

    USC Water polo coach: "What the hell, is all that racket?"
    USC athlete: "It's okay coach, the horse will settle down in a bit."
    USC bean counter: "Coach, there is a $1.3million increase in the water polo funding."
    USC Water polo coach: "Uh, yeah, um, a generous doner gave the money to help offset the need for more pool filters."

    Some rich folks bought their kids way into college and got arrested for it...ok. Sorry, I have hard time caring.

    But please let me know when Hillary is arrested...for anything.

    So I guess more indictments should be coming down soon. No way the FBI goes only after a couple of coaches for school-sanctioned fraud.

    My parents paid my college to let me in. I wouldn't have been considered if they didn't throw some money their way. :eek:

    I feel better letting everyone know about the application fee :D

    I am a little more than concerned about those who knew she was a regular on the Hallmark channel.

    I don't know if I would go that far out on the limb. Proving it may be difficult. Coincidentally, Lori Loughin's daughter was in the Bahamas on the USC Chairman of the Board of Trustee's yacht (with him) when they were hauling her mom's butt to jail. Although it proves nothing, it is just too much of a happenstance not to make you go hmmm. $1million bond for mom, ouch that is pretty steep.

    You should be a little more than concerned you have no woman in your life. :D

    I guess if 25 years with the same woman is the same as no woman then you are right.

    My woman likes to watch shit like Cobra or the Terminator. If it wasn't for the occasional sappy romantic comedy she be damn near perfect.

    No clue if Evelyne likes Hallmark crap or not, if she watches it I'm not in the house.

    No wonder you married her :D

    I had to make mine watch movies like Red Dawn (the original, not that rehashed bullshit) and Better off Dead. Mine is a sci-fi nerd though, she loves Star Wars and Battlestar.

    It's all about the prestige that comes with saying you have a degree from Georgetown, Yale or some of these schools. Well, it's also about saying your kid goes to Georgetown, Yale or some of these schools.

    You're all about trying to impress others (or even stroke your own ego) and this is just another thing to add to your resume. Saying your kid goes to UCLA doesn't have the stroke that saying your kid goes to Yale. Like one of those $70K Hermes Birkin bags or a $200K Patek Phillippe.
