Athletes are held to a higher standard than regular students, at FLorida at least. There are administrators who walk around daily to the different classes that the athletes are in just to make sure they attend class. If they don't attend class on a day, it's typical for them to not practice that day as well. I assume most schools do this type of thing. Athletes put in more work than most of us give them credit for...


Wait, isn't Florida the school that has that "athelete only" major?


Regardless of whether they do or not, even if they are taking regular classes, although they might be putting in more work than they get credit for, they still put in less work than the average student...


Florida doesn't have such a major. I can also speak from experience and say that the average Florida football player puts more time into academics than the average student at UF. Also, the average athlete GPA at Florida is higher in the majority of majors than the average student GPA.

Their GPA is higher because they are taking the easiest courses offered, while other students choose to challenge themselves- i am not saying they don't work hard, i am just saying it is a bit of a misleading statistic.

That started with Meyer. I can tell you when Zook was there, those guys never went to class, i know i had some classes with them sophmore and junior year.

Also, UF did have an athlete only major, not sure if they have it anymore. It was called undergraduate studies, basically get 120 credits and you graduate.

I believe I was unclear in my earlier statement which may have caused some confusion. In certain comparable majors, IE Business Finance for example: student athletes at the University of Florida have a better average GPA than the average UF student in that major.

Granted there are those few players who take Kindergarden Math and 1st Grade English but some of these athletes work really hard and there's the stereotype that they're all just morons who just want to play and move on and that's just not the case with the majority of these athletes.

That's the major I was talking about. I haven't heard of a major like that at any other school, but I'm sure they're out there.

There was one at some school, I don't remember where called Coaching 101 and it was for basketball players- one of the questions on the final exam was "how many points do you get for a 3-pt shot?"

It was at UGA, the teacher was Jim Harrick Jr, the son of the UGA coach at the time.

Yeah, I thought it was UGA, but I didn't want to say that and be wrong and offend someone that likes/attended UGA. Although, the test did mix some math in there with the question "how many halves are in a college basketball game?"
