    Class Action

    I wish they had this job at ISU. I would have definitely applied

    Oklahoma State has attacked the problem of players skipping classes with an innovative way to keep check on them.
    Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said the school is paying students $7 per hour to monitor attendance of Cowboys players in their classes.
    "Back in the day we used to miss class all the time because they couldn't check us -- they didn't have the man power," Gundy said.
    Oklahoma State officials used to hire administrative interns to check classes, but players started noticing them. Under the new plan, the players don't know who is checking on them.
    "We know everything these guys do. They can't get away with it," Gundy said. "Some girl with Coke-bottle glasses sitting next to them in class might be the one who is checking up on them."

    Re: Class Action

    I've heard that we do have people doing this very job. Some athletes even have to call and leave a check-in message via voicemail on an Academics Center phone, and they must call within like 10 minutes before their class and from a campus phone in the building that their class is held in. I'd love to be the person who gets paid to check the messages and check off names on a list of guys who call in.

    Eustachy used to do this, and check on students in class personally - and basically drag some players out of bed and into class.


    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    Re: Class Action

    I had a buddy who was a class monitor. If you had an athlete in your class, you could sign up with the university and report if he was in class each day. My buddy said the key was not to let the athlete know who you were, or you might have a meeting to "come to an understanding" about how regularly the athlete attends class.
