Thought this piece had interesting similarities to the decline of Howland's basketball program (from a higher level of success, obviously), with allegatings of drug use, favoritism and lack of discipline. One of a number of choice quotes with parallels to the SI story on UCLA and Reeves Nelson: "It was Harvin, more than anyone, who epitomized the climate Meyer created. While former players say Harvin always was treated differently as a member of Meyer’s Circle of Trust, it was the beginning of his sophomore season—after he helped lead the Gators to the 2006 national title—that it became blatant. That's also when it began to contribute negatively toward team chemistry.... ...At one point during the 2008 season, multiple sources confirmed that Harvin, now a prominent member of the Minnesota Vikings, physically attacked wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales, grabbing him by the neck and throwing him to the ground. Harvin had to be pulled off Gonzales by two assistant coaches—but was never disciplined. "
