    Ohio State QB aint playing school

    Ohio State’s Third-String Quarterback “Ain’t Come To Play SCHOOL”
    Isaac Rauch
    In fairness to Cardale—a well-regarded recruit who has yet to play a down as a freshman—there's plenty of evidence that courses designed for busy athletes are extremely annoying and essentially pointless. The tweet has since been deleted, so classes or not, Jones learned something today.

    Good thing they don't waste any of those athletic scholarships huh?

    Seriously, this kid can't possibly be smart enough to have passed the entrance exam to college!

    its all a business, no school is gonna deny a great talent because they dont have the best grades.

    besides ND who frequently does or doesn't recruit them because of that, or in Tee Shepards case make them leave school.

    Lets not kid ourselves here guys. These boys are brought in to play football and nobody gives a flying **** about what they do in the classroom. The fact that some people even attempt to act like these kids are "student-athletes" pisses me off beyond belief....

    Vanderbilt. Even a great deal of their better athletes have been very highly regarded students.

    Penn State always had some really high graduation rates and would avoid some of those guys. However, even those schools listed won't turn down top talent. There's players on every team that don't live up to the university's academic standards.

    I don't know if Vanderbilt still does but in the past they have turned away players for academics only to see them go to Tennessee, Miss State, Kentucky etc. Several years ago it was mentioned several specific players that were pretty solid that had interest in coming to Vanderbilt but were turned away because of academics.
