By the time a young man or woman is 18 or 19 years old, they should have a good idea of what they want out of life. If Mr. Wright felt that he was being herded into worthless classes or classes he didn't want to take during his time at the university, he should have said something at the time. It's pretty easy to be a highly paid pro athlete and from the comfort of your surroundings look back and criticize a corrupt system. Maybe he should think about going back to Texas A&M and speaking to the student/athletes about the importance of their education. Simply spewing it out on a talk show for people’s amusement is a cheap shot and he should know better.
