Well no actually you are wrong about that. College athletics would exist but given that it appears that generally the best athletes are average to below average when it comes to either the extent of effort they apply in the classroom or in their God given academic prowess, the schools that dominate on the field would simply be different. Junior Colleges like Louisburg, Wake Tech and Central Carolina Community College would have the best basketball teams. That 850-950 SAT would get that great running back into Fayetteville State or UNC-P. That is the way it really should be. Think about it!

You must be new to college sports.
If athletes had to meet the same admissions criteria as normal students at a given university, college athletics would cease to exist at a competitive level. Basketball players for UNC, Duke, and NC State have SAT scores that average in the 900s...and I'm sure other schools are the same way.

I really enjoy the unc fans telling us how bad we are as far as academics. I heard DG on the radio the other day informing us that unc, duke, wf and va were worried that louisville would not be able to match the above schools academics. I hope they don't match unc's. They don't have any. How can DG have the gall to say that, knowing many unc FB & BB players are not college material per Ms. Willingham's statements last week. I would say if you put their players in the same classroom as other schools players with an impartial instructor unc's would finish at the bottom of the class. I bet you about 70% of their players should not br in college.

Believe me, no one cares what UNCheat fans think about any of this. Your "academics" are now a _national_ joke.

Has anyone ever called you superficial? Told you you're overly concerned with appearances and social standing? You certainly seem to attach an awful lot of importance to what the USNWR thinks of your school, or what the WSJ thinks of your school, or the number of Rhodes Scholars affiliated with your school. It's a strange thing to be hung up on...

Isn't State only the fourth best engineering school in the ACC? And that is what you brag about?

Here's a news flash: UNC's academic rankings in various publications have actually gone up since the "scandal" broke. You know why? 20,000+ students with 4.0 GPAs out of high school and SAT scores from 1300-1600 tend to impact a university's academic standing more than five or six athletes who are just there to play sports.
Want to know another fun fact? UNC just put out another Rhodes Scholar this year...our 49th one. That's more than any other public university in the country has put out. Care to guess how many Rhodes Scholars State has produced? Big, fat zero.
But those are just facts.
