Re: Questions about playing sports in college
You know, that may be the most uneducated thing that I have read in a long time. I went to Marshall. My wife went to Marshall. Many successful people in both our families attended the school, as well as countless numbers of folks all over the country.
If your buddy graduated with the skills that got him a wonderful job as a used car salesman, it probably says more about your friend than it does about Marshall University. You have to go to class, do the work, and most of all, want to be there. You have to want an education. Just because you show up doesn't mean you are going to be educated. I grew up in the Huntington area and know many people involved in the athletic department, as well as many involved in the academic departments. My opinion is diametrically opposed to yours.
There is no doubt that shady dealings go on at most every major University that fields athletic teams. You sound like you have an axe to grind and no one is going to be able to change that.
Just a terrible post.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
