7. I think he has a point, actually.

We all know this guy, and probably most of his teammates have no business in college. His shitty grammar and punctuation illustrate that perfectly. He wouldn't be there if it were not for the football team. And, at OSU, like pretty much every other school with a football team, it's football above all. To say that members of the football (and basketball) teams are "student athletes" is a big farce. Yeah, some of them care about getting educated. But, most of them see college as a stepping stone to the pros. As long as people care more about the goddamn sports teams than they do academics, this is what we'll have.
