    Question. Why do they need to look at all the other schools?

    Do you have proof to share.

    Nope. It's just that everybody has known for decades that revenue-generating athletes at big time schools can get by easier academically than other students. The N&O stories try to conflate the "easy classes" issue, which is widespread, with more serious corruption (the AFAM chair changing grades, and maybe treating athletes differently than other students in his department). If they are going to make a big deal out of the "easy classes" issue, they should do it in an even-handed way.

    Big difference is, do the police investigate all citizens or just the ones they catch?

    By your logic, both you and I should be under investigation by the IRS or police for tax evasion or a bank robbery. Ecause someone we know or in our town has committed those crimes.

    Just 35 years of casual observation, discussions with rational alums of some of those schools (at least one who attended both NCSU and UNC), and thinking about the issue. Can you offer anything that isn't tainted by your ABCer Rage Syndrome? I won't hold my breath.

    (yawn) When Kane and the rest of the N&O staff get off their lazy a--es and start looking at all the major schools in the area (UNC, NCSU, Duke, WF, and ECU), then we might have a worthwhile story about the relationship of athletics to academics. Until then, this is still just another bunch of nothing. If you have attended any of these schools and didn't almost immediately realize upon arriving on campus that some football and basketball athletes were less prepared and took an easier road academically than non-athletes, YOU were really the one that wasn't smart enough to be there.

    Another wusspacker who lacks basic reading comprehension skills (a common theme on this site). He didn't say anything about comparing the FLAGSHIP to the lessor schools in the system (because it is beyond comparison in that respect). He asked about comparing SAT scores of football players at any school with SAT scores of the overall student body at the same school.

    So you are saying that the N&O keeps printing meaningless stories. You know Duke and State fans do not decide what goes into the paper don't you?

    Both Dook and State get curb stomped and suddenly another non story with zero proof from a disgruntled employee comes out. They could not be more inferior if they tried, especially penizless Paula.
