Alumni have told us that the common fallacies the campaign succeeded in putting to rest inside the Rutgers community back in the mid-1990s continue to be introduced as "arguments" in the national debate about commercialized Div IA athletics.

Several have urged that the original "Pro & Con" page be retrieved from the RU1000 achives and reposted as a public service.

We understand the request. Though the analysis of standard fallacies was new in 1995, various occurrences -- e.g., a repetition of the "Everybody Knows O.J" fallacy by RU president Robert L. Barchi, who was not in office during the original campaign -- suggest that the list is far from outdated.
