Re: The P Diddy scholarship as applied to women's tennis
Okay. Scratch that Justin Spitz example (although I was more going towards allowing these kinds of athletes to be on the team and the lack of meritocracy involved)
A lot of times, the principle behind a scholarship is that a scholarship is meant to be the commensurate of the person's athletic ability. So here, a UCLA scholarship shows just how good P Diddy's son is as an athlete. Sometimes, the scholarship offered is another attractive lure for an athlete to go to that school, and that is not the case here.
Like I said before, it would be nice if P Diddy donated it back so that UCLA can have some money to scout for other athletes and expand its programs. This does nothing to take away the kind of athlete he is considering that he got on through his athletic ability, with the scholarship being an added bonus/award.
