Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Shocked – SHOCKED!

Monday December 29, 2008

I’m sure a lot of hard work went into this AJC piece, but hopefully the conclusion that colleges and universities with major athletics programs lower their academic admissions standards across the board for student-athletes isn’t news to you. If it is, well….let’s just say you’re not going to like their follow-up series about Santa Claus.

Every time I see articles like this which go into great detail to show the different extent to which schools lower their admissions standards for student-athletes, I’m reminded of the quote often attributed to Shaw.

"We’ve already established what you are, ma’am. Now we’re just haggling over the price."
