It's it's amazing this entire nationwide college a distance cheating scandal has exposed how. Some of these and more minor sports have played a big role in getting kids into college because their parents were willing to pay. And it all went under the radar and in the case of a female student who was not been identified. Stanford found out that she wasn't much of a sailor. And yet the sailing coach who had been fired after he agreed to plead guilty in all of this. Except that a 500000. Dollar bribe through the mastermind of this scheme Rick singer the college admissions code based in. California. And this is one of the few students who so far have actually being booted out of their their school because of the scheme. It's play and it's so elaborate -- it's like why not basketball doing sailing just feels like it's it's in your going above and beyond but if it were basketball somebody might notice if the power forward. Didn't show up. Here in the in some of the more minor sports it's often the coach that is the final arbiter of who's any good who deserves a spot who should get a scholarship who should be even designated as a recruit. And no one thinks twice about it if they don't show up don't participate. At and that seems to be what what happened here. In this particular case. There were three different students who were fought two of being part of a bribe payment or series of bribe payments to the former Stanford stay sailing coach. This one female student is the only one who was accepted and and after she died in is when this half billion dollar bribe was allegedly paid.
