Great article. I was fascinated to learn about the Drake Group, an organization which is actually fighting the academic abuses by athletic departments.
Yes, the system fails so-called "student" athletes, even the European-Americans. It is good to learn about it.
It is appalling to note that young African-American males are far more likely to be in prison than college.
But pop a brew and have some wings, enjoy the game. No racism here, thank you!
