College: Educaton or Sports
The typical college student pays for books, labs, fees, food, room, etc.. to the tune of about $ 10 to 15,000 a year for their four years that usually takes 5 to 6.
The full ride jock gets al of this for free and then some. He also gets a tutor, a full time sham job, gets cash for, and other fringe benefits.
Has the university shown a preference for height or weight over academic excellance. Stastics show that few football and basketball players graduate. They are simply used and discarded by the universty when their playing days are done.
This practice drives up the costs for all other students.
Is this an acceptable practice.
