(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. - Posted by zanerx
Question. Why do they need to look at all the other schools?
Do you have proof to share.
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.
Pretty much the same as you plus I had a sibling play D1 athletics at Duke.
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.
