“It’s not just about wins and losses, but it’s about the student-athlete experience and how they represent the institution, how they engage with their colleagues within the department, and whether they feel as strongly about the values that we’re espousing as we do. I think they appreciate that.”

This has little or nothing to do with sports ethics, per se, but take a minute to sit back and laugh at the hilarity (and sometimes stupidity) of sports icons. Remember, be careful of what you reveal to the media, because everything you say can and will be used against you...to provide comic relief for us.
