Default Re: CNN analysis: Some college athletes play like adults, read like 5th-graders

This data doesn't surprise me too much. Realistically, what percentage of athletes from revenue producing sports will actually utilize their degrees when they graduate?

Let's be honest about this, we care about these people because of their athletic talent, not because of their test scores or GPAs.

Maybe I'm a bit cold about it, but I couldn't care less how these kids perform in the classroom as long as it's good enough for them to perform on the field/court.

Bash me if you want, everyone is entitled to an opinion. But I don't care for a minute how smart these guys are. Like my grandfather used to say, "The world needs ditch diggers, too.".
