The Duke Chronicle marked the first anniversary of the Duke University men's lacrosse scandal with a big package last week. It reads like a body count. Among the casualties:
- The lacrosse team. The team that saw its season canceled, its beloved coach fired, and three of its teammates racked with rape charges spent the year rebuilding under the leadership of a coach who likes to give hugs. Their motto for the season: Succisa Virescit, cut it down, and it will grow stronger.
After the jump, some of the quotes from that "Social Disaster" ad.
- "This is not a different experience for us here at Duke University. We go to class with racist classmates, we go to gym with people who are racists. . . . It's part of the experience."
