Sports Scholarships simply should not exist. The fact is that they provide opportunities to the wrong people. It honestly shouldn't fucking matter if you are good at football or baseball or shit, I mean so what, you can play a game well. You know I beat all the Arkham Asylum games on new game plus where there is no counter indication. So why should someone get a scholarship for being able to run a ball across a field well in a game when I'm good at video games. The only difference is the kind of game played. Thats what they are being given a scholarship for, the ability to play a game.

Then you have the fact that some universities are perfectly willing to fudge a sports players grades if it will help them play better.


This is an actual paper turned in by a university of North Carolina athlete and yes it is in its entirety here,

-On the evening of December Rosa Parks decided that she was going to sit in the white people section on the bus in Montgomery, Alabama. During this time blacks had to give up there seats to whites when more whites got on the bus. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. Her and the bus driver began to talk and the conversation went like this. "Let me have those front seats" said the driver. She didn't get up and told the driver that she was tired of giving her seat to white people. "I'm going to have you arrested," said the driver. "You may do that," Rosa Parks responded. Two white policemen came in and Rosa Parks asked them "why do you all push us around?" The police officer replied and said "I don't know, but the law is the law and you're under arrest.

You know what he was given, AN A MINUS.

Seriously, if a regular student turned in that paper they would get an F and to be honest, that's what should have happened, he should have been given an F and flunked. Yet because he can play a damn ball game it is not just an okay paper its a great paper.

Here are the facts

1.College is not about sports

2. College is about learning and getting a degree so to be successful in life

3. Sports are not about learning

4. Sports are simply a goddamn game and nothing else

5. Playing a game and expecting to get free education for it is fucking ridiculous
