COMMENT: Program sustained rare blemish when Corey Maggette admitted (after turning pro) that he'd accepted illicit benefits from Nike-funded summer coach Myron Piggie. (The NCAA has yet to rule on case.) Coach Mike Krzyzewski is reportedly paid $375,000 a year by Nike, which has sponsored numerous coaches involved in such scandals. Isn't it time Coach K used his prestige to press Nike to clean up grassroots program?
