P.J. Hairston case reflects larger college athletics picture

If P. J. Hairston had been known for his prowess at the lab bench, for example, rather than the basketball court, no one would have thought twice about a friendly guy loaning him a rented car for a weekend trip to Atlanta. Star athletes are envied for their “full ride” scholarships, but unlike a lab-bench prodigy with a full scholarship, athletes can’t do much more than shake couch cushions for extra money.
