By "toilet paper on the shoe," I mean that it'll go away with no ill after-effects. 

 

I'm not gonna act like I'm not biased, but I don't feel any sort of vindication, other than it was pretty clear that this wasn't going to stick from an NCAA POV. In addition, I'm not mad at anyone. What I'm saying is that, ultimately (and I think I said this previously), it's not going to change the perception of people that graduated from the school for educational purposes, or the perception of the people who want to apply...and even if it did, it'd be a very small amount. If this was proven to happen at University X, and I was interviewing someone from there, I wouldn't think less of them than I had before the investigation. I'd throw some jokes at them, but really...that's it. 

 

Think that's all true.

What if this exact same situation happened to Duke?

 

Would you still feel it means nothing?

I feel it does. 

 

And yes. But of course I'd totally joke about it with people.
