Some Nebraska media have been whining all week about how the rigid academic requirements at NU might be placing them at a competitive disadvantage. (This from a school with open enrollment) The flury was prompted by Jorge Diaz' failure to qualify, leaving the MBB program without a big man. (No word about the coach waiting until the last minute) Hidden in the story is information that Diaz could have come to campus to take a substitute test - more transparency will follow, we're told. Does it seem so onerous to require that a student athlete be able to attend and participate in a class taught in English? ISU is represented as having a similar requirement, but, with a lower score. I don't recall a language problem for ISU. HuskerExtra.com - Lincoln, Nebraska - Mens Basketball
“We’ve got a pretty good football conference, and we’ve got a pretty good conference overall. We’re still walking around with our heads held high and our chest out, about that.” Paul Rhoads
That school is about as far from Stanford as DMACC is from Northwestern. Ever wonder why they have so many academic all-Americans that they always brag about? It's because their academics are a joke (minus the med school of course).
