FSU athletes are dumb -- THAT'S the story

So I'm reading the latest story on Florida State vs. the NCAA -- a story that makes someone, and that someone is the president of FSU, look like a liar -- when it finally occurred to me what's wrong with this whole thing:

FSU athletes were cheating in a class on music history.

Who cheats in a class on music history?

Who needs to cheat in such an easy class?

If I'm the NCAA, I'm expanding this investigation to look at the entire FSU program -- and to make sure the school isn't admitting non-qualifiers to its school. Because if more than 60 FSU athletes in 10 sports had to cheat in a class on music history , well, that's an athletic department with some really stupid athletes.

FSU athletes are dumb -- THAT'S the story

First of all - the article is about FSU Atheletes not FSU in general.  Second - your players were cheating on freakin music history tests. Why not respond to that rather than go on some incoherent rant about how FSU is in the ACC which is almost Ivy League. WTF are you talking about?! The ACC is an athletic conference NOT an academic conference so what you are saying makes ZERO sense. FSU is about as close to Ivy League as Santa Fe Community College. FSU isn't even a top state school academically and is way behind UF and Miami in academic rankings. Get over it - FSU is a second rate state school at best.

I'm guessing that you are an FSU student/alum which leads me to believe that maybe Doyel SHOULD have extended the critique to the entire school.

The story says "MUSIC HISTORY".

Music theory is something totally different.  There was a time when I was a music major and theory was the class that let me know to change majors.  I'm a numbers guy, so maybe there's different sides of the brain working to do graduate level accounting vs music theory 101.

Failing music HISTORY, however, is different.  Actually, that's really really bad.  I suppose it's a ringing indictment of the horrible crap on the radio if these kids can't even identify the lineage of the music they love.

I think if I was a coach I wouldn't bring in those type of players.  Talent will always get trumped by smart talent.

Music theory is not a flunk out course.  It involves memorization of people, events, and dates.

I give credit to Doyel for being one hell of a troll.  Nothing sets off people like calling their team's athletes morons.

I give credit to Doyel for being one hell of a troll.  Nothing succeeds in setting off people like accusing their athletes of being morons.

ACC is #2 in academic "Prestige" after the Ivy League is delusional. There is Duke, Vanderbilt, and then football schools. It's too hard of an argument to say that the ACC is #2 in academics next to the Ivy League. But the ACC is home to the most prestigous public school in the country, the University of Virginia. Remember, it is the university that Jefferson founded.

Hey Doyel,  I just figured out why you left the gender category blank on your profile screen.....  No need to mislead the world sweety.

PS: Call me if you need a friend ;)

Hey, fsuty . I'm about to embarrass you, but I'm guessing you're used to being embarrassed.

loving on Myron Rolle.

And ripping on the Gators' string of arrests.

Any more questions beyond the usual "he's a UF homer" cliche that you swing like a fat drunk third baseman at a beer-league softball game?

Hey fsuty421, be careful you are proving Doyel may have something here......FSU the "second" in academics to Duke?? Ha ha   Ever heard of UVA? NO, FSU is down near Suntan (the) U in academics in the ACC.
