I know this is somewhat off topic, but I wanted to clear this up.

It wasn't straight up grades that got Landesberg cut off. He flat out refused to go to several of his classes, which was a big no-no for new coach Tony Bennett. My recollection of events was that Landesberg was initially suspended for refusing to go to class. Bennett flat out said that if Landesberg enrolled over the summer and got himself good enough grades that he would be welcome back to the team. Chose to drop out of school.

Both the football and basketball programs have very strict attendance policies.
