How did things come to this, Donna Shalala? What have you done to deserve this? Maybe it’s that $1.2 million salary.

This Dead Spin blogger is only the first of many writers who in the next few days will turn their attention to the woman who has presided over all of the amazing events at the University of Miami – hiring Charles Nemeroff, fielding the most violent university football team ever, enabling Nevin Shapiro for years… Miami, in UD‘s opinion, is just a scummy school, and Shalala has let it get that way. She should go.

    I think that you are being unfair by giving all of the credit to Donna Shalala. Henry Stanford and Edward Foote laid sturdy foundations of sleaze during their tenures. Shalala is standing on the shoulders of giants.

    Miami (the original home of “underwater basketweaving” IIRC) has always been scummy, going back at least 50 years. What’s interesting is that it became ever scummier even as it worked to upgrade the academic side.
