Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball - 6th edition
How seriously can you take an education if you're gone for parts of seven months of the school year, as this year's class has?
Between AAU, Under 17 World Championships, traveling teams, and a full high school schedule (including sending kids across the country), there's little chance they're in the classroom, is there?
Perhaps tutors are sent with the team. If so, that's even more cash spent on erstwhile amateur athletes.
I suppose my point is that we ARE the Greeks-- the only difference is that we dress it up a little and mouth the words of education to appease our dirty consciences.
