“Whenever a college athletic program got itself in trouble with the law - big trouble - the NCAA usually steered clear, sticking to how many minutes a week student-athletes are allowed to stretch, the distance they can travel in a car with an alumnus, and whether they are allowed to put cream cheese or jam on their free breakfast bagel. (They are not).”
John U. Bacon, Fourth and Long: The Fight for the Soul of College Football

“If the NCAA ran local law enforcement, whenever they pulled over a drunk driver, they would impound the car and let the driver hop in another one and drive off.”
John U. Bacon, Fourth and Long: The Fight for the Soul of College Football

“A Brown University alum, Angell’s vision for Michigan was to create a university that could provide “an uncommon education for the common man.”
