Bearcats busted

The long-awaited state of New York review of the Binghamton athletic program has been released. What was suspected was confirmed:

Binghamton University's conference title and first NCAA appearance last year came at a steep cost to the school's reputation. Academic funny business, alleged payouts, cover-ups and athletes out of control were the basic themes of the report.

Now, all that's left is for Binghamton University to mend its ways.

I have no doubt they'll do exactly that. Having attended three America East tournaments at the Vestal, N.Y., campus, the school has much going for it. A beautiful arena, a nice campus, a large and supportive fan base. Our observation of Binghamton is that of a school with much going for it.

They'll survive this and eventually win a league title the right way, I suspect.
