Front-page gem

I don’t imagine they award Pulitzer Prizes for short pieces in college newspapers. Nonetheless, Trey Scott’s article on the egregious discrepancies in punishment meted out to athletes in different sports for various infractions is a winner by all counts. It is a fact-based article that raises questions of justice, integrity and compassion — virtues that might have little interest to those whose chief concerns are the lucrative spoils of victory. If ever a sports-related article deserved to be on the front page, this is the one.
