3 game suspension from basketball! That is all Andy Robinson received for blatently trying to cheat in class. It baffles me to think that someone who was caught trying to cheat is still part of the Univeristy. When I went to college if you were caught cheating you faced expulsion from the University due to demeaning the acedemic code. I guess if you are the leading scorer of the basketball team those type of disciplinary actions do not apply.
It is amazing to think that he was even allowed to finish the paper and stay in the class - of course he was expelled from the class he probably would be ineligible which is not good if you are the leading scorer on the basketball team. The article goes on to say how Mr. Robinson apoligized to his teammates, coaches, and fellow student athletes ..... ummmm what about his professors, fellow classmates, parents, Dean of students etc? I guess there's no need to apologize to all of those people they are really just the foundation of why he has the opportunity to lead the team in scoring.
Now do not get me wrong, I have never confused Buffalo with Harvard, but I guess I assumed Buffalo was an institution of higher learning, but you know what they say about assuming..... Buffalo has embarrassed themselves by allowing Mr. Robinson to stay enrolled in the Univeristy. Receiving a diploma/education from an institution of higher education is a priviledge not a right. It's a shame but Buffalo University sacrificed its integrity for a lousy game.
