Boosted Booster

Much as I love watching big time college athletics, I find it impossible to look past the morass of serious issues that malign collegiate sport.

Of all the nasty elements clinging parasitically to college athletics, corrupt boosters are easily the most pathetic. Whether or not you think varsity college athletes deserve to be paid (I do), you've gotta admit that it's sad when middle aged men are paying off college athletes so that they might feel more important.

No booster's case is sadder than the tale of Robert Q. Baker. Last week, Ohio State basically broke up with him and got a restraining order. Poor Baker. What will he do to feel accepted now?
