Second thoughts: Comparing interest rates with Rowdy--Dayton Daily News Sports

Loan sharks: I didn't give it much thought at the time, but now it all makes sense. There was Wright State's mascot, Rowdy Raider, mixing his placards last season. One minute he'd be urging on the crowd with signs that said, "Go, WSU!" The next, he was in front of the student section holding up cards that read, "Two, four, six, eight (percent), who do we appreciate? University Financial Services!"

Now, this investigation that is focusing on deals between student loan providers and athletic departments might just be a politician looking for publicity, but it looks a little shaky when the phone number to call — it's in an ad on the WSU athletic Web site — is 1-888-MYWSULOAN.
