I'd like to point out something to all those USC and UCLA fans who are so worried about which school has the better record because of which scholarship restrictions (Viewpoint, May 9 and 16).
You "fans" seem to forget that the main purpose of attending a university should be obtaining an education. That's OK, though, because so have the administrations of most of the NCAA Division I schools in this country, and so have most of the athletes who attend them.
I'm a senior at UC San Diego. We're a Division III school. We give no athletic scholarships and we don't even have a football team. What we do have is our athletes, who play for the love of sport--not money, sexual favors or a new wardrobe every season.
Our baseball team looked bound for the national championships, so I thought I'd go on over and watch one of their final regular-season games. It didn't cost anything to get in, we sat practically right behind home plate and we watched a terrific ballgame. Nobody threw beer in the stands! No fist fights between drunken fraternity men broke out!
