You're thinking about that the wrong way. If the pro's would only take college grads and those college grads had to have passing grades. Also if the college would only accept athletes that are able to pass the standardized testing, then we would not have this issue. The kids would have to learn if they want to make it to the pros or they don't..period. That should be the standard. But what has happened is greed took precedent in the coaches and administrations agenda and they began to bend the rules and we have slowly evolved to where we are today. And it's a helluva lot harder to fix now.
