I'm sure the television ratings for last week's BCS Championship Game between Alabama and Texas were excellent. I'm also sure that most of the major Division I powerhouses are still having very little trouble generating income or attracting blue chip high school prospects.

But I'm also sure that just beneath the surface of this behemoth, cash-cow of a sport, an insidious infection has gained a foothold.

Which headline-generating story from the past month sickened you the most?

Mark Mangino, corpulent Kansas coach, being fired for apparently spouting bigoted garbage to the players in his charge?

How about Mike Leach, Texas Tech oddball coach, being fired for apparently punishing a player for getting a concussion?

Where can I comment?
