Baggage

2/28/2010: Mark Baker of the RG has a few stories today on the UO football team’s troubles. Best quote is from Eugene sports psychologist Steven Ungerleider, the author of the wonderfully titled “Faust’s Gold“, a book on the East German athletic industry. A guy who clearly knows a thing or two about how far obsession with athletics can go.

“They’re spoiled brats,” he said. “They can do anything and there are no consequences.” 

I’m guessing he’s not going to be lecturing in the Jaqua Center anytime soon. Of course, as Ed St. Clair Sr. notes in his RG letter, the team’s rate of legal problems is well below that of, say, the US Congress – who seem to have a similar disciplinary process.
