NYT's Article Regarding FSU Academic Issues and a Prof's Death
LINK


Apparently FSU athletes cannot pass an online course called Coffee, Tea & Wine without the athletic department applying pressure to the professor to give the athletes a little help.

She later killed herself.

Damn FSU.

Also, time to claim that championship.

A good friend played for GA tech but was heavily recruited by Bowden at FSU. Bowdens pitch was, "I have a lot of guys who can run fast and catch balls, but not a damn one can read, you can do both, so play for us..."

Happens more often than you would think

quote:

Cincinnati, OHIO — The official statement given via Jack Brennan, public relations director for the Cincinnati Bengals, is: “James Brooks was able to function and perform in his football role while with the Bengals. No one was aware there was a problem.”
The “problem” he refers to was the revelation that occurred during a hearing in Judge Steve Martin’s Hamilton County, Ohio, courtroom last month regarding delinquent child support payments in excess of $110,000. James Brooks could not read the court documents; this after graduating from Warner Robins High School in Georgia in 1977 and after spending at least four years at Auburn University in Alabama.
When asked by the judge how he graduated from Auburn, Brooks said, “I didn’t have to go to class.”
