It's not like these guys (those struggling with school) are taking honors classes. They are taking what we used to call remedial or basic back in the day. They should not make less than a C.

They may be in remedial/intro classes, but I don't buy that it means they should just be able to get the grades without problems. Some guys just aren't cut out for school. Nothing wrong with that. Doesn't mean they don't play good ball.

I wouldn't be surprised if people like Thomas never play a down of non-JUCO college football. What I have a problem with is the fact that since he may never get to college, his chances of making it to the NFL are all but gone. It is because of people like this that I really wish the NFL would make development leagues. Then just make the draft rules like baseball. You want to go pro straight out of HS and spend three years in an NFL D-leauge rather than college, that's fine. I think it would solve a lot of problems the college game faces right now, and it would give a bunch of kids a shot at the NFL (both those who can't do college and kids who did college but aren't NFL ready after college).

No, but even in SC students must take certain core courses to graduate, including some intermediate level mathematics, science, and maybe four English courses. Sometimes, they need a B or an A in the courses to get the GPA up to a high enough level to qualify. Not all that easy, particularly if you get a tough teacher.

Would this be the appropriate thread to report that Green, Lammons, Blue, and Smalls haven't been academically cleared yet and won't be here for Summer II?

I believe these are simply waiting on the NCAA clearinghouse and should be good to go by start of Fall semester.
