If you dig a hole for others, you may fall in too!

The FBI is investigating whether former Rutgers director of basketball operations Eric Murdock tried to extort the university, the New York Times reported. In December, Murdock's lawyer reportedly sent a letter to Rutgers officials two weeks after Rice's initial suspension demanding $950,000, a sum that the university chose not to pay.

If he didn't come forward for the right reason he could end up falling in the same hole he dug for others. The incident should have been reported the moment it happend. However, he choose to report it after his job was on the line.

Do you think his motives were pure or is this another case of a scorned employee?

I can't imagine that anyone who tries to extort money to not show videos of wrongdoing and abuse having pure motives. It looks like just another example of the "me first" attitude that pervades today's society. When taken together with the Penn State and Texas Tech abuse scandals in recent years, it probably indicates more widespread abuse of authority, abuse of students, and a "win at all costs" (along with "me first") throughout college athletics.

I never thought the programs were squeaky clean, but as more of these incidents get revealed, the more serious are the infractions.

Looks like extortion, walks like extortion, sounds like extortion so....

The Colleges and Universities make so many millions off of these young athletes that the allure of getting a cut of the money is too much for some.

Cam Newton's daddy was a preacher, I believe, and he was 'only' looking for a paltry 180K for the services of his son. A mere pittance of the money Auburn made during their championship season run.

I think there are some clean programs out there but as Sebe notes, the 'win at all costs' thing, overides and unfortunately compromises the integrity of some.
