We should really thank Kobe Bryant for cameoing in this UC Irvine music video (for those who care, he appears around 2:00, because it's pretty much the only thing worth checking out), because otherwise we wouldn't have been able to check out this incredible-looking violation of standard practices for the league. This thing is god-awful, and really could become a big story if enough people see this video. "Love Shack" is supposedly the school's love song, but based on the enthusiasm of the athletes singing it, I'm guessing no one is too much enamored with being an Anteater these days.
The question is, will the NCAA punish UC Irvine and take scholarships away for producing such an amateur production? This clearly represents the worst of the student-athlete, and everyone involved in this production should be punished and stripped of scholarships. It'd be typical of the NCAA to sweep this scandal under the carpet and not let anyone go on probation for this.â†µ
