Kevin Ware, Mike Rice situations are latest college sports maladies
Tracee HamiltonIt’s impossible to be surprised by the dreadful hubris and hypocrisy of college sports, which seem a daily occurrence, much like the sun rising in the east. Today’s installment deals with Louisville and Rutgers.
Adidas has selflessly printed up T-shirts that say “Ri5e to the occasion” — referring to Cardinals guard Kevin Ware, who wore No. 5 — and will sell them for a mere $24.99. Louisville has graciously waived any profit from the shirts, and the money will go instead to Ware.
No, wait, it won’t. As with all student-athletes, Ware gets squadoosh, even for a T-shirt that is supposedly printed in his honor. Adidas has graciously agreed to donate a portion of its profits to the school’s scholarship fund. So a T-shirt and a university will profit from the horrific injury Ware suffered in Louisville’s Elite Eight game against Duke on Sunday.
