Does anybody not think that this "cave-in" will only encourage the next NCAA blackmail?

Remember a year ago or more when confronted with a reporters comment or question that Duke has gotten every break for several years, Coach K. responded with an angry "Are you saying the games are fixed?" Perhaps the reporter hit it right on the head--it seems to me there have been far too many of these referee and timing errors over the years to merely reflect unconscious favoritism for a team with the rep--maybe there should be some investigation. Do refs get choice assignments subsequent to Duke wins? Do the networks get higher ratings or charge higher rates for commercial time when Duke is on winnng streak? I'm not usually a Les Nessman conspiracy freak, but this has been nagging at me for years.
