Yeah, But It Is Just Lacrosse

Duke University has cancelled its entire Lacrosse season until an investigation of an allegation that three of the team members (as yet undetermined) were involved in an alleged rape at an off campus party is completed.

While that is such an upstanding position to take, let us not forget that it is just a lacrosse season.

Don't get me wrong, I am not busting on the merits of the sport. It is much better to watch than soccer.

But lacrosse doesn't bring a dime to the university.

It is easy to take the moral highground without the loss of funds.

Do you think Duke would have cancelled its basketball season, and the money that goes with the NCAA tournament, had its basketball players been accused of such conduct? Given how Duke's basketball fans act, it would take a lot more than a mere rape allegation.

Side notes: the lacrosse team has only one black player out of 48. Are they racist?

Oh, yeah, Duke sucks. Here is essay written by a friend of mine (he is not a UK fan; he is a UNC grad/fan and a Duke law grad) that proves it.

[I actually like all the Duke fans that I personally know. But Duke still sucks.]
