College Football and College Basketball is not really COLLEGE FOOTBALL and COLLEGE BASKETBALL. The overwhelming Majority of College Football and Basketball Players "NEVER EVER" Graduate from College and the Statistics for Black Athletes is even more glim when you crunch the numbers on what Percentage of them actually get a College Degree or end up in the NFL or the NBA!
QUESTION: Please tell me what the HELL good is a Scholarship if you are "NEVER EVER" going to Graduate and why the HELL are College Coaches like Nick Saban, Les Miles and Urban Meyer Recruiting People that they know will "NEVER EVER" Graduate from College.

FACT: College Football and Basketball Player are treated like Modern Day Gladiators and just like in the olden days of Greece and Athens. However, once they have served their time or can no longer play the Game they become "CAST AWAYS", "EXPENDABLES" and "DISCARDS"!

FACT: College Football and Basketball Programs should be for Student Athletes, rather than a Minor League Program for the NFL and the NBA!

SIMPLY STATED: College should be more about College than how many Games the Home Football or Basketball Team can win!

FACT: As a College Soccer Coach, at Nicholls State University back in the 80's and at UNO throughout the 90's, I was always much more concerned about how many of my Student Athletes actually graduated from College than how many Games we won.

FACT: It seems to me that College Athletics has taken on a Life of its own, a Life that has actually drifted far away from Academia. No doubt about it College Athletics is now in a League of its own.

America it may be time to really examine College Athletic Programs and decide for ourselves is it Real or is it a FALICY?

FACT: College isnít all about how many Games the Home Team Wins or Loosed-

TRUTH: College is all about Learning about how to be "SUCCESSFUL N LIFE"!
