The BORG is alive and well. They are assimilating colleges and universities from Winston-Salem. NC. They go by the carbon-based life-form name of “ISP Sports”. They recently assimilated the University of Nebraska at Omaha, University of Richmond and Valparaiso University. That’s over 50 schools marching in-step. Other BORG-Like Alliances include CSTV.
Once a school has been assimilated, you can be sure that their amateur status is forever gone. They are formated for easy gambling information, they are whored-out for every penny you can get. For what in return, the schools get cookie-cutter treatment that makes them no different from their competition. They become a BRAND, not a institution of education.
I can’t blame the BORG, it’s what they do and they do it very well. As for the schools, it’s a dog-eat-dog world out there in getting the cash influx. I guess some would sell the souls to meet their goals.
