Mitchell Report

Not much to talk about a day after Cincinnati and DePaul squandered their chances at big upsets. I wish I could provide a diversion from the overload of information about steroids in baseball, but there's simply not a lot to talk about on finals week. Well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

You can find the list of players mentioned in the report here. The full text is available here (409 pages... don't try to finish it in one sitting). A list of recommendations from the report is found here. ESPN has done a surprisingly good job breaking down the latest news.

That's it for today. Hopefully tomorrow I can find something basketball-related for you to chew on. Happy Thursday.

Hi there -- saw your blog link on another site and really enjoyed the archives, so I thought I'd join up.

My thoughts on the Mitchell Report...

You know, this whole sterroids issue brings up another issue in college athletics - accountability and becoming ethically sound. Some colleges and universities let their athletes go through the motions and let them get away with everything, but I would hope that ND educates their athletes - bbball, football and all olympic sports on performance enhancing drugs. From what I gather, athletes are watched pretty carefully and held to high standards. I just hope this issue is a big one addressed with students inside ND athletics.

That's certainly a nice thing about how much coverage the steroids issue in baseball is getting. If steroids in college wasn't an issue before, it certainly should be now.

Notre Dame prides itself on having high standards for all its students, including the athletes. I don't know any specifics about how it is handled by coaches and administrators at Notre Dame or elsewhere, but I hope that they continue to work hard to keep the program clean.
