Because the standards for athletes are lowered because a good majority of America’s top athletes are black and either go to inner city schools that their respective local governments have neglected and/or are sent to private schools/affluent public schools that are athletic factories and they don’t bother to teach the athletes anything because they don’t see them as students, they just see them as money makers so they push them through school and don’t teach them the required curriculum to have a 4.0. And then there’s also the fact that a lot of these guys have undiagnosed learning disabilities that aren’t addressed because their families may not have the money to do so and the schools don’t care once they figure out you can catch a touchdown or shoot a 3. But yea….sorry if I’m all over the place but this post rubbed me the wrong way. Everyone always wants to take shots at college athletes like they don’t deserve to be there when they do. You may have worked hard in the classroom and that’s great. But those guys work just as hard if not harder to make decent grades and be top flight athletes. And a lot of those guys graduate in 3 yrs or less. If you wanna be mad at someone, be mad at these greedy schools for ripping you off. But don’t come after people who have worked just as hard as you because they’re the easy target because of their visibility and the perceived “easy road” they are given for their god given abilities.
