You'd also be surprised at how many great athletes get into college and play sports for a few years with almost no education at all.

Went to Miami from 1998-2002 and was there for the National Championship team.

One of the better players was in my econ class that year, on the roster, and almost never showed up but still passed the class.

Not condemning my school as a friend of mine said the same thing about USC where he went and have heard it about other team programs.

Fact is if your really good at something most others aren't you can get away with more then most. Almost all of the top 50 college football teams if truly investigated by the NCAA would have violations. It's how it works.
