The Sports Curmudgeon

Jalen Rose speaks the truth here. I do have one minor quibble with one of his items.

He said, "majority of the seniors who helped generate billions..for colleges and coaches will head into obscurity..and a ton w/o degrees..SAD"

The lack of a degree - or the lack of significant progress toward a degree such that one might be earned with only a modest additional effort - is as much the fault of the "student-athlete" as it is the fault of the coach or the school.

The NCAA makes these kids financial victims; the kids inflict the educational wounds on themselves.
