JBQYour forgot Sports Management as a major, as in how to organize a
badminton tournament. It's a favorite major among Big 10 athletes. Once the
season is over, one-and-done basketball freshmen usually don't attend
classes their second semester or after March Madness. Auburn had a number of
distinguished scholars on their football team until someone investigated and
found it fraudulent. The PAC12 has advocated "broadening" their
requirements so that more students could enjoy the university experience. Stated
another way, we want to compete with the SEC in a race to the bottom.
Davies is the headliner? chirp, chirp. Must be a weak field on Saturday.
So, what is the percentage of college players who make it in the NBA? It is
something like 1% of Div 1. There are also players in D-2 and D-3 and other
divisions who are very good players. The degrees that most of these players
obtain are bogus and include Communications and General Studies. That is what
the NCAA should be concentrating on. There are graduation rates which are now
being punished with the removal of scholarships. Offending schools in one major
conference now just water down their course work even more to up the rates. The
University of Missouri had a high standard of academics as I presume also Texas
A&M who both recently joined the SEC. Missouri is being clobbered by schools
with graduation rates closer to zero than 100. Touchdown Johnny at A&M has
to be a miracle worker to avoid the rush of academically challenged giants.
Davies with a beard? Is that a permanent addition. Hopefully B can add some
range and get a call in the second round. Wookie or Mildred may slate him to be
taken in the first ten picks, but realistically he is a good second round choice
