College athletes can't read
 
This is a study done by CNN where they contacted 37 schools after a study showed that a number of college athletes can't read and write. South Carolina and Clemson were contacted. Clemson responded, South Carolina didn't but a USC professor is quoted in the article.

Interesting read which sheds some light on the poor treatment of athletes by NCAA schools for athletic purposes. Only paints the NCAA in a bad light as they don't handle scandals at various schools consistently.

Let us not be the least bit na´ve here. I am forced to read their tweets sometimes and I can sure tell you that it doesn't surprise me in the least. I am quite sure there is a percentage that skate through.

Now maybe people will stop complaining that negative comments in the Cock Pit will stop players from wanting to attend USC.

I looked on the front page and didn't see it. It's the first time I've been here in over a week. Sue me.

Back in the early ninteys I hired an ex Tenn RB. we were coming out of Memphis one cold ass morning, I was riding shotgun doing paper work . I smelled antifreeze. I asked " Is the truck running hot ?" He replied "no " I said, " well I smell antifreeze, wheres the temp hand C or H ? He replied ," P " I said ," there is no P, its either on c or h. " He became very loud insisting it was on P. I leaned over an sure enough it was on P. [ TEMP] Which the P is located right above the H. We had blown a gasket.He couldnt read or write. His uncle had filled out his app.
