    I think simply eliminating the last four words would be most appropriate.

    The problem with this sentence is that it’s too timid:

    “The scandal at Ohio State further fueled perceptions of a tail-wagging-the-dog culture at major universities, where administrators look the other way as long as the golden goose athletics program is reeling in wins and dollars, creating a bear of a problem when the lion’s share of the money is spent feathering the nests of ravenous wolves in sharkskin suits who lead the sheep to slaughter each Saturday afternoon.”

    You’re definitely getting there, TAFKAU, but I’m not sure you’ve got the entire animal kingdom represented…

  5. TAFKAU Says:

    Sorry, I didn’t want to beat a dead horse.
