This week, college football fans were shocked to learn that UNC-Chapel Hill’s football players had access to sham courses so that they could remain academically eligible to wear tight pants and throw themselves on top of unwilling victims.
Who says that athletes have nothing in common with the pleasant law-abiding citizens of fraternity row?
This was done to help the athletes and not the school, right? It’s not like alumni donations rise and fall with the football team’s win percentage, right?
I’m looking forward to the players’ lawsuits on this one. They have no right to complain but I’m sure they will anyway even though they were the prime beneficiary of the university’s generosity. What might a lawsuit look like?
I choosed Chapel Hill because they had done promised me good edjamacation. I trusted them. All they gave me is empty grades. I can’t get my edjamacation time back. I gots to learn to do a job. They stoled that from me because I play football.
Please give me ten million dollars for my brain damage.”
Unfortunately, the concussions and/or lack of education will prevent any UNC football players from trying this gambit. Too bad…
