Bob, everyone here knows I played division 1 baseball. But there were no handshakes, no pretend classes or easy grades. I had to do the work. Kids qualify for entrance into school for sports when they normally would not, but thats life. They still have to go to class, pass...if they struggle, most teams get Tudors, etc to help.
No offense, but you are talking baseball, since at most schools it doesn't draw the revenue that football and basketball do, I would think the school would not risk a scandal to try to build a top notch program. That and I think a football program as a whole has traditionally more passionate boosters than the other sports.
