Jason Whitlock: Focusing on corruption takes focus off real problems in NCAA system


And I get emotional about the type of investigative journalism that leads the public to believe the solution to the problems facing big-time college athletics is the denial of opportunity to poor, unprepared black kids. Many of those kids are my best friends. I know their stories. I've seen them evolve. I know firsthand that letting 40 to 60 of those kids (between football, basketball, track, etc.) every year on a college campus of 10,000 to 40,000 students does not jeopardize the academic mission of a major university.
