this, like i didn't like the guy either, but this went along with laying off a lot of people, this isn't really a great time to celebrate.

Greetings from china buckeyes!  My advice to parents is to freeze your child's credit until they turn 18. It can be done through each of the reporting agencies and is well worth the hassle. Criminals like that jerk in Djs article do this to living children as much as dead and many a person have found their credit history in ruin before they even get a start in life and it is extremely hard to clean it up afterwards.  Spend the time!

See this is the general consensus but it isn't accurate. You can't just look this stuff up online. You have to submit foia requests and you have to be specific. You can't just say 'ok let me see your books.'  They also can, and have, deny requests if they think it harms any number of regulations. So the short answer is no it isn't as open as many are led to believe and you have to know where to look.

These schools are NOT losing money on athletics.  If they were they'd cut the programs immediately. Athletic programs drive enrollment, donations, and marketing to the schools.  Nobody has ever done a comprehensive study on where the money actually goes and how much money sports actually help generate to a school, and the main reason is because no university is foolish enough to open their books up and say "hey, check out our shady accounting methods."  I am positive some of these schools that are required to not show a profit, utilize their athletic programs to ensure that happens, so they can continue to get their subsidies from the states.  

I don't know why everyone thinks university administrators are so stupid to allow their schools to mess around in the negatives all the time, trust me, these guys are just as sneaky as the guys on wall street.

this IS Lane Kiffin we are talking about here, more than likely he had a series of dick picks between himself and that guy with statements like "can't wait to hire you to get <insert name here>" .  I would believe that more than not having evidence.
