    "Love that we can't pack the house against the #10 team in the nation."

    I'm guessing our team didn't love it.

    I hope that our team is literate.

    There are several who aren't. I can 100% guarantee you that.

    Same as every college campus w/a football team.

    I'm sure they are disappointed in the turnout, I would be, but I hope the fans that are there represent well enough that they don't think it's the team against their own fans.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    I don't have stats, but could come up with about a billion of these examples:

    On today’s episode of Outside the Lines on ESPN, they talked about Florida State’s academic scandal. Florida State, which mostly admits honor roll students, was admitting football players with IQs as low as 60. Many of these players were unable to read. Large portions of the Florida State football team were placed into the school’s easiest major and their assignments were done for them by tutors. One of the players who allegedly was illiterate was current San Diego Chargers starting cornerback Antonio Cromartie.
