Is there any evidence that any UC school accepted a fraudulent application with fake photos. Did anyone claim to play a sport that didn’t even exist at their high school. Did any UC use a false bio on their website that was actually for a different player on the same high school team? I’d need to see specific details to say that this is anything close to Varsity Blues.
I respect your opinions in general but here you fluctuate too much. It is not “less than a zero”, is it?
I do not see a huge difference between playing say a year of JV
and not playing the sport at all. This is splitting hairs. That kid definitely knew that jv level does not translate to Cal varsity level. As for falsifying bios we do not know what was in those bios. Surely one year of JV would have raised an alarm...
I agree that we do not know the full details and, hopefully, we will know more eventually. If Cal coaches did not take bribes - great. This would be the greatest difference.
