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

The dude who says the ACC is #2 in academic "Prestige" after the Ivy League is delusional. There is Duke, Vanderbilt, and then football schools. Look on ANY ranking website, you'll see several pac-10, Big-10, and Big-12 schools (each) listed long before the second or third ACC school is. In fact, to counter his UF comment, UF (SEC) and Miami are both listed ahead of FSU on topuniversities.com. (If you want to find FSU, it's around #300 on the 2008 ranking sheet, webometricstop100 shows FSU as #42...UF #24) If that's not looking through rose-colored glasses, I don't know what is.

What's dumb is that it took Gregg 2 plus years to have this "revelation".  And I guess you should talk to our Rhodes Scholar, Myron Rolle, or our MBA candidate Christian Ponder about being dumb.

What you should really be focused on, Gregg, is the 24 arrests at uf since Urban Meyer arrived, and the fact that many of these players were given the same "public defender" **cough cough, Bull gator, cough cough** and amazingly had their charges dropped by the state attorney **cough cough, Bull gator, cough cough**.

So, do you have to follow sports at all to be a sports writer? Doyal you're an idiot.

Dude, MUSIC HISTORY a flunk out class?  Get real.  You can pass those classes drunk.  In fact, many do.


 

You clearly have never taken a music theory class.... or if you have, I'm guessing your school wasn't a very good one.



Um, he said music history, not music theory.  There is a big difference between the two topics.

Your reading comprehension is terrible, so your school must have been pretty poor.

There are so many things wrong with what you just wrote, I don't know where to begin. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that if your school's pretty good, we are in big trouble.

This why some media people should be fired.  This is why athletes have such a bad rap.  Because the bad actions of a few are reported and then that label placed on everyone.  How can you label an entire university based the actions of a few?  To say something so shameful, is that fair to Myron Rolle, Christian Ponder, or any of the other thousands of athletes that have degrees from that school.  Many of which are probably doing well in our society.  Every school has students and student-athletes that cut corners. I know that part of your job is to get as many clicks and comments on your columns, but your an educated individual.  Please think just a bit before printing things like this.  It will do us all a favor.

Also, maybe Doyel should be more concerned about his own Gators, who lead the nation is arrests and are lowest in the nation in SAT scores. Talk about having dumb athletes.

Doyel is clearly a trash writer that went to UF and thinks its ok to take shots at FSU whenever he can. He fails to take into account that FSU is second in the ACC, which outside of the Ivy League probably has the most prestigious schools, in academic honors only to Duke. He fails to mention that FSU had a Rhodes Scholar last year. He fails to mention that FSU has a JUNIOR QB who already graduated undergrad A YEAR AND A HALF AGO and is getting his DOCTORATE in business right now. This is clearly a no talent writer that is being subjective towards a school that he hates. Don't listen to this clown because he doesnt have his facts straight.

Our music history class is a joke, kids take it over the summer while studying abroad because it's so easy. And I'm going out on a limb hear and saying my schools pretty good.
