In an interview with CBS Sports, Notre Dame head coach Marcus Freeman discussed his new role with the university and appears to have thrown some shade at Ohio State in the process. Remember, Freeman played college football at Ohio State before being selected in the 2009 NFL Draft...
quote:

"I'm not saying from top to bottom, but the majority of our kids, they - I want to say this the right way - are pushed to learn and their study habits are formulated every day," Freeman said, via CBS Sports. "You can't cheat academics at Notre Dame."

"You don't go to class [at places like that]?" he added. "OK, take some online classes, show up for your appointments. At Notre Dame, you're forced every day to go to class."

I'd like to know his opinion after he wins a game. Right now his D1 win percentage is the same as mine.

Look, if players are too dumb or arrogant to take advantage of school, then that is their problem. 2% of college players get drafted and only 14% of a draft class actually makes a roster. Should they take advantage of actually learning, yes and a lot do and I applaude those. But, for those who do not think they will need it and then flop and fail in their dreams, that is life my man.

Yes, somewhere it is up to the student athlete. the best line I ever heard was when Wimp Sanderson was asked how many of his players graduated. He said all of them that wanted to.
