after reading the article, all i can say is WOW.  i mean just WOW.  Why bother with trying to hide it, just adopt a kid and give him whatever you want. wow.
It makes me wonder what the people who run into Kevin Lahn on a daily basis think of him.

Terrelle Tressel...? Naw, it just doesn't have that certain pop to it.

To err is human. Really sucking requires having yellow stripes on your helmet.

Really hard to judge. On the one hand, a lot of these kids come from pretty crappy home situations, and more stable families have gotten involved with them and taken them in. The NCAA rules really screw over a family who is just doing a good deed for a kid.
On the other hand, this can be a big loophole... thing is, though, how many people would renounce their family just to make a quick buck?

It makes it a little easier to judge when you read that this same man "was dissociated from his alma mater, South Carolina, by the school in September 2011 as part of a major NCAA infractions case."

If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.  ~ Bruce Lee

The interesting question is if the Western Kentucky player paid for the hotel accomidations for the Florida players on their trip to Miami, is that an NCAA infraction because he is friends with them, and presumbably fans of theirs?
