A dude in my senior class got accepted to Harvard with a 2.9 weighted GPA, and our salutatorian didnt get accepted. Guess which one played football?
@The nOly One, your mom?
@WelI Obviously, my mom played football? Damn
@The nOly One, but guess which one will make more money for Harvard? The one thats good at shooty hoops
@The nOly One, a certain university lost like 4 billion dollars due to COVID 19, because that revenue comes from football, like wow, can they manage money any worst? We pay thousands in tuition, and for what??? How the hell they lose so much money in like 1 month...
To be fair, football generates a lot of money for Div 1 colleges which they can use for other resources and as a way to attract even more students. I understand that it’s shjtty that brains don’t have advantage over brawn sometimes, but capitalism tells you to invest in the things that makes you more profit.
@TriangleTesticles, most schools can’t afford their other sports if they don’t have football. Basketball and sometimes baseball or lacrosse are the only other sports that make more than they spend.
@TriangleTesticles, you say “to be fair” but sadly it isn’t, because of capitalism we favor the things that can get you money, and for some reason it is not knowledge, but catching a ball...
It's a billion dollar industry. The school makes way more money off "sports-ball" than the stem programs
@TheTrueCorreia, as a stem person I should be mad. As a season ticket holder I am not
@Donquixote Corazon , Pretty much any college quarterback
This isn't supposed to be Upsetting Pics.
I thought you had to have really good grades to be able to play football in the first place. Atleast my school was really strict about it.
@Noctobo, not really and the teachers will do everything they can to make sure the star player gets those grades.
@Noctobo, most places require like a 2.0 gpa to play. I’ve never seen a school require above a 2.5
@Noctobo, yes but like all corruption goes, “he’s my star player you can’t fail him, the championship is the weekend blah blah blah” it’s all about the money sadly...
There were twin brothers at my highschool who were accepted on scholarships to Yale even though they had like D's and C's. They were identical and at around 15 years old were like 6'4 about 280.
