wow......internal investigation basically led to discovery of Beckman encouraging/forcing players to lie to training staff about injuries, making them play through concussions, and so on.


Yikes

Totally gross. I think the university made the right decision. There is no room for this in sports, particularly college sports where young kids are still growing and developing.

I'm not saying it is right, but I would guess this happens more than we think.

Yes. It just so happens the coach was caught here. I believe there needs to be a greater level of effective communication for this type of matter. The coaches or personnel who violate the ethics need to be disciplined accordingly.

Between the athletics and the school administrators, UIUC has become a black mark on universities.
I really can't believe the AD didn't know what was happening. The days of Gunth are long gone.

Flagship University is just as much a joke as our state politics. Might just as well resort to hiring the Zooker back.
