Off with their heads....: ....which have indeed begun to fall at St. Bonaventure, home of the Bonnies who decided last week to forfeit their remaining two games this year after an eligibility scandal. The University President resigned, and the AD and head coach are on "Administrative Leave" (meaning, "We'll pay you while you update your resumes").

The Bonnies have a better than average graduation rate, and the university has always been a respectable place, with a good reputation. The President sounds like he was a loose cannon, and they are well shut of him. The part of this scandal that has surprised me is that the students who voted not to play are being . They are the only ones involved that showed any leadership, as far as I am concerned.
