I knew baseball and that's what mattered. They treated me, as I did them, as if we were working as a team, regardless of our differences.
The number one issue is not sexual abuse, as important as that issue is. The greatest missed opportunity, the elephant in the room, is the need to question the purpose of the university and university athletics.
We should smash the corrupting influence of athletics in our high schools, colleges and universities. Like students in the rest of the world, Americans should go to school for no other purpose than to learn.
Instead of caring whether a coach will stay (because he won't), kids and parents need to be asking questions more in line with the culture of today.
