Default Florida St Players Reading at a 2nd Grade Level

This is pathetic

Quote:
Brenda Monk, a learning specialist hired to work with athletes who had learning and physical disabilities, was accused of improperly helping students type, edit and write their papers. Monk, who testified that some of those athletes had a second-grade reading level, was accused of committing academic fraud. In one case, she was said to have let students use a study guide that had answers to exam questions for an online music course.

Monk has left the university and filed a defamation suit against Florida State.

In their defense, second-graders are very advanced these days, what with the Baby Einstein and secret genetic engineering programs Congress slipped into an appropriations bill; some of the contemporary seven-year-old's favorite television shows also captivate the Miami Hurricanes. (And vicious, highly educated commenters, please, consider how the unusually high clusters of "criminal justice" and "recreational administration" majors on your own squad might fare by the same standard before you hit that spittle-flecked 'return' key.)

This is nothing new, most football players can't spell football.

Not news to me. Even as a Texas fan, I cringed every time Vince Young or Jamaal Charles got interviewed.

If you are good enough at sports people will open doors for you that should have been kept closed.

What's pathetic is all those free college educations being wasted on athletes when their are lots of intelligent guys who don't get a college education because of the cost.

Not surprising at all. I'd bet that a lot of football players quit reading in high school, maybe even in middle school. A lot of them have one dream and that is the NFL.

There are some good student athletes on the football team. Myron Rolle earned the Rhodes scholarship, and Christian Ponder graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Finance and Real Estate degree in 2.5 years. From what I understand, he has a 4.0 so far in the MBA program.
